3. Do I continue to pursue my passion as a potential career or keep it as a hobby for the moment?

4. Why will working by the hour keep me poor?

5. Should I focus on identifying and using my strengths or work on overcoming my weaknesses?

    Loved the question and answer regarding what to do in the next 48 hours. Many times my lack of action is caused by facing a seemingly overwhelming goal. Starting with a timeline, and breaking the task down into smaller, more actionable segments, should really help. Thanks!

    • Jordan Peterson

      I agree! The timeline thing was really inspiring! :)

    • Dan Miller

      Steve – thanks. I really had never thought about it that way before so I appreciated the question – the first 48 Hours.

  • Tom Henricksen

    Dan is this something you could add to your tenth Anniversary edition? Or maybe an ancillary product. Keep up the good work Dan!

    Dan, I was listening to your Podcast Monday and just made my way half through. When I heard the discussion Essentialism and Greg McKeown, I bought his Audio book. I am at about 3 hrs 40 minutes in the audio, when I heard his story about Sunk Cost Bias, suddenly it hit me like a ton of bricks. Since I was fired from a sales job last August where I invested 8 years of time, training, and effort. How many of us do this same thing without looking inward?
    I didn’t want to give up that lifestyle or that hard work. So I started a new business doing similar type work for the last 6 months, during that time I was out for about 2 months with some health issues. Since then I have made about $122 and I still have savings money to live off. However its time to move on, this is what the essential person would do, now knowing the Sunk Cost Bias story.

    Thank you.

      Sean – I totally understand. I loved that Sunk Cost Bias concept. Makes us frame pushing on or starting fresh.
