Today we discuss COVID 19, personal choices of consequence and resilience.

Welcome back to the 126th episode of the Hard Thing Podcast.

Today I share my conversation with Steve Giblin, author of the new book Walking in Mud

Here are some highlights from today's show:

  • Steve's hardest thing was making it through Hell Week in BUDS and then serving as a Navy Seal
  • Resilience is all about coping
  • Resilience is getting hit with hard things and still going
  • With the "new normal" everyone needs to weigh personal choices and pre-accept their inherent consequences
  • Gratitude is an excellent way to prepare your mind before, during, and after hard things
  • Parents always teach what schools can't

We also got some great action items from today's guest:

  1. Work on resilience in all aspects of your life
  2. Don't overthink
  3. Ask, "What could I have done better?"
  4. Start each day with gratitude
  5. Be a better version of yourself tomorow

Hey, there adventurer! I appreciate you taking the time to do an investigation check and dig into the archives of the show. I want you to know that this is an old episode back when the show was called The Hard Thing Podcast. The topics are still the same, though the format and some of the names are different. If you’re coming back to The Hard Thing Podcast, well surprise! We changed our name and some of our branding. Feel free to hang out in the archives and listen to the wonderful old episode of the Hard Thing Podcast, or take on a new adventure by listening to some of our current episodes. Either way, happy adventuring.
