Show Notes

How do you design your optimal morning? Every night as we sleep and dream, we enter a profoundly altered state of consciousness, we process and integrate our experiences of the day. Rather than immediately jumping into tackling tasks for the day, or distracting yourself with social media, build a set of morning rituals that become your transition from being asleep to being awake.

093: Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevsky

In this episode I share my thoughts after reading Dostoyevsky's Crime And Punishment. A much more effortful, and less rewarding read than I had hoped, but I do love how deep it goes into the central theme of the story—which is what happens when we go against our own moral compass.

017: Why most startups don't invest enough in their best people and customers

I call it the squeaky wheel fallacy: When you run a startup, there will always be vociferous customers and team members. They'll be very vocal about all the challenges, problems, and struggles they encounter with you. And because they ask for your attention, they get it. On the other hand, there are those that are just silently performing: Team members that deliver results without making big waves about it. Customers that keep paying you for years and years, without ever making much of a fuzz and requiring many support or Customer Success resources. And because they are not asking for your attention, in most typical startups, they don't get it. Even though they deserve it. In this episode, I share how to not become a victim of the squeaky wheel fallacy, and how to allocate your time, attention and resources in a smarter way. ...

132: The Tyranny of Practicality

“Shut the fuck up and do it anyways” used to be my mantra. I lived my life in such a disciplined, pragmatic way, which was great for producing results but I was so out of touch with my own thoughts and feelings that it was creating a negative impact in my life. I realized there is tyranny in practicality.  I’m not saying there’s no use in being pragmatic, but life is not always about being practical. How effective is it to think in such a disciplined way when it offers zero flexibility? In this episode, I discuss the spectrum between practicality and flexibility and the challenges each side of the coin demands of us.   Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/ep132 Connect with me: https://steliefti.com  https://twitter.com/steli  https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/  ...
