Show Notes

It’s been a very large part of my personality to define my self worth and the value I add to the world through what I’ve accomplished in a day. But I’ve learned that no matter how many to-do items I cross off my list, there’s never a sense of completion.

I’m now embracing the art form of non-doing. Non-doing isn’t the physical act of literally doing nothing, but a state of mind to achieve - peacefulness, awareness, presence. It’s the embodiment of an empty vessel, letting things happen through you and within you, but not being or becoming those things.

015: Want that startup job? Let your CV tell a story

Thousands of people apply to join my our startup every month. Lots of “why you should hire me”-style pitches coming my way. Once you’re on the receiving end of screening job applications, you realize: CVs suck. Almost nobody is good at writing CVs—even badass marketers and great sales people are surprisingly bad at it.   I’m pretty sure I missed out on hiring some amazing talent, just because the CVs they sent me unsold me on learning more about them: A list of places they studied and worked at, that doesn’t tell a story, doesn’t convey a compelling message, doesn’t give me any sense for why this person is the right fit for the role. So yes, thank you, but no.   In this episode of the podcast, I share why you need to make your CV tell a story, and how to do it well.   Connect with me: https://twitter.com/steli https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/ https://www.instagram.com/steliefti/ ...

025: Out of touch with my emotions

I've been out of touch with my emotions for a long time—without even knowing it. In this episode, I share how this realization dawned on me. I also share how I'm using an "emotion tracker" to become more aware of my own feelings. As always, I'd love to hear from you.
