A podcast about the pursuit of knowledge through interesting and engaging conversation, hosted by Agent Palmer. Released every other Tuesday.

Sep 10, 2019

For the inaugural episode of The Palmer Files Podcast, guest (and friend of the host) Bill Sweeney from The Wicked Theory Podcast and I discuss The Dip: When to Quit and When to Stick by Seth Godin.

Throughout the discussion we cover:

  • Process (a lot and often)
  • Quitting vs Not Starting
  • Decision Making
  • The opposite of quitting and Prioritization
  • Follow Through and Unfinished Business
  • Learning from Failure
  • Enjoying the journey (aka for the love of the process)
  • Getting to the top and the scarcity of success
  • Being a workaholic vs. Not being one

Lastly, this book is for decision-makers, and in life, in some way or another we are all decision-makers, so this book is for everyone, but its application may change depending on your role in any given situation.
