Show Notes

Today I want to share with you one of my favorite books of all time, The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoyevsky. I loved the experience of reading this book so deeply that I already can’t wait to read it again. It does a wonderful job of portraying many major life themes in a profoundly delightful way. I found so much beauty and wisdom contained within each page that it has stuck with me for days, and even weeks, after reading it. If there’s one book you read in your entire life, let it be this one.

111: Tricks of the Mind: I Was Thinking My Feelings

I've always been a very cerebral person, relying primarily on my intellect to achieve my goals and solve problems I encounter. For a very long time, I equated the mind with myself. I viewed the body as a vehicle that just carries my mind. But as I started getting more in touch with my feelings, I also started paying more attention to my body—and began to realize that it's so much more than just a vehicle. The body has it's own wisdom. Recently I decided to pay more attention to what my body tells me—and soon caught my mind pretending to be my body.  When you bring mind, body, and soul in harmony, when you connect the different parts within you, then you also become whole and feel more connected with everything around you.  Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/ep111/  Connect with me: https://steliefti.com  https://twitter.com/steli  https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/  ...

003: How to Overcome Your Fear of Creating (And Publishing) Content

It’s late at night. I’ve been waiting for hours to be produced. Be excited. Be motivated. To create content! Before you start a blog, podcast, or YouTube channel, ask yourself: Why do I want to put myself out there? Why do I want to create content for other people to consume? Can I make a commitment to create and publish content? Doubts and fears that come with creating content can stop you in your tracks. Do you believe that your content is important and worthy of an audience? Are you afraid that people who like, respect, and know you will think your posts are dumb and boring? If you’re thinking about creating and producing content online, this is my advice: Get over the emotional hurdle of creating content Build a followingCreate unique and value-added content Create content to give something back to society and help others. Be willing to look foolish in the name of progress. Let your content be consumed and critiqued. Learn to continue, even as you mess things up. You’ll get better, build an audience, and find people who appreciate what you have to say. Make the world a better place!

019: How to be a wartime CEO (and why everyone needs to

This episode is not just for CEOs—everyone should adapt a "wartime CEO" mindset these days, I believe. The COVID-19 crisis is leading us farther into the unknown with every passing week.  This is a different format than what I usually publish—an almost hour-long conversation where I explore the concept of peacetime vs wartime CEO, and how to make decisions in times of crisis. As always, I'd love to hear from you! Connect with me: https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/ ...
