A Conversation With Jerry Colonna About Life

Of all the podcast interviews I’ve done over the years, I think the one I recently did with Jerry Colonna on his Reboot podcast series is my favorite.

In the podcast show notes, Jerry links to a fun post by Fred Wilson titled Sixteen Years Ago (which is now 19 years ago…) We’ve known each other for a very long time and I treasure Jerry as one of my best friends on this planet.

Enjoy the week. Hopefully this will provide some thoughts as well as some fuel for you. And, if you aren’t a regular listener to the Reboot podcast, I encourage you to subscribe to it as a source of deep insights from Jerry every few weeks. There are 25 episodes so far since Jerry started it with his gang in September 2014 – I’ve listened to and benefited from every one of them.

    Thanks my friend. I can’t say out loud that this was one of MY favorite episodes but, ah, heck. It was. One of the great questions that popped up on Twitter around this was, Who’s the Dungeon Master? Love, J

    Responding rather than reacting to life as it is happens (becoming a unicorn) is much more limited than an established relationship that permits unicorns with or without the horn or one with or without hooves or unicorns with or with out a form that looks kore like a cat or dog or reindeer.

    This then improves the capacity to actually stick your head in the neck inside the “cave”.

  • Really, really loved this episode. Another great one was with Bijan from Spark, BTW.

    The way you both discussed success was quite helpful. It’s so easy to fall into the trap of feeling like a failure because we fail to emulate the success of others, as seen from the outside.

    Keeping up with the Jones on any level is not a way to live a fulfilling life.

    Thanks for the reminder.

    One of the things that always grated on me with the late 90s (and my late 20s) was the immense swagger and hubris of the thing. It just wasn’t me, but I thought it was the price of entry at the time.

    I wonder if there’s another generation now drawing the same inferences out of what they are seeing and its representation in the media.

    You have my immense respect, Brad and Jerry, for leading from the front in showing everyone that there is another way.

    Thank you for creating a space where it is ok to be who you are – and that’s it. Suffering through a decade of ego driven posturing, chest thumping, and empty/hollow buzzwords, you are created a different level where the creation of a company and value is inextricably linked to personal growth while walking the path of life. Thank you.

    Though it’s inappropriate to say you’re only successful if you create a unicorn (in other words if you create one of the greatest ever money-generating creations ever), it is not inappropriate to say your definition of success is to create one of the greatest ever creations within your particular passion. That’s what creates the world (with the big ugly demons in the cave awaiting that choice — they need to be fed, of course). …Observations that were in my head after listening to a great, energy-invoking podcast.

      If you have some free time and you wanna do something productive with it than you must read that. Everyone needs money but is there any safe and authentic way to do it online. There are some credible sources but they require huge effort but little output … I also struggled for almost 2 years to find something that I can do than this came into my knowledge … I am doing this online work for two years .. In start it was slow but with little time I settled in this..It is the nicest way to earn more and more money at home.$40h – $90h…how? part time or full time,I’ve been bringing in $82h… It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it out.

      There are many types of work on internet. Some are very good with that you may make a good deal of cash , easily just giving some time sticking with your pc …But the main problem is we don’t know where to find such kind of jobs in a bulk of scams . You may look here , with little effort you may easily reach $8-9k a week and its totally free .I am doing this and advise you to look in here for sure …
