#442: Tribe of Mentors — Naval Ravikant, Susan Cain, and Yuval Noah Harari

Welcome to another episode of [The Tim Ferriss Show] (http://tim.blog/podcast?utm_source=podcast&utm_medium=podcast&utm_campaign=podcast-description) ! It will feature some of my favorite advice and profiles from [Tribe of Mentors] (http://audible.com/ferriss) . Thousands of you have asked for years for the audiobook versions of [Tools of Titans] (http://audible.com/ferriss) and [Tribe of Mentors] (http://audible.com/ferriss) , and they are now both finally available at [audible.com/ferriss] (http://audible.com/ferriss) . Today’s episode will focus on my first chapter in Tribe of Mentors, as well as the profiles of [Naval Ravikant] (https://tim.blog/guest/naval-ravikant/?utm_source=podcast&utm_medium=podcast&utm_campaign=podcast-description) , [Susan Cain] (https://tim.blog/2019/01/24/susan-cain/?utm_source=podcast&utm_medium=podcast&utm_campaign=podcast-description) , and [Yuval Noah Harari] (https://www.ynharari.com/) . Just a few notes on the format before we dive in: I recorded the introduction and selected three fantastic, top-ranked narrators to handle the rest. The short bios, which you will hear at the beginning of each profile, are read by Kaleo Griffith. Ray Porter reads my words as well as those of the male guests. The words of the female guests are performed by Thérèse Plummer. [Tribe of Mentors] (http://audible.com/ferriss) is the ultimate choose-your-own-adventure book—a compilation of tools, tactics, and habits from more than 100 of the world's top performers. From iconic entrepreneurs to elite athletes, from artists to billionaire investors, their short profiles can help you answer life's most challenging questions, achieve extraordinary results, and transform your life. I am really happy with how the book turned out, and the universe helped me pull off some miracles for [Tribe of Mentors] (http://audible.com/ferriss) (e.g. Ben Stiller, Temple Grandin, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Yuval Noah Harari, who you will hear in this episode, Arianna Huffington, Marc Benioff, Terry Crews, Dan Gable, and many more). It includes many of the people I grew up viewing as idols or demi-gods. So, thanks, universe! And if you only get one thing out of this book, let it be this: In a world where nobody really knows anything, you have the incredible freedom to continually reinvent yourself and forge new paths, no matter how strange. Embrace your weird self. There is no one right answer… only better questions. I wish you luck as you forge your own path.

#438: Coach George Raveling on This Unique Moment in Time, How to Practice Self-Leadership, Navigati...

“My hope is that we will be who we say we are. All of us.” — Coach George Raveling Coach George Raveling ( [@GeorgeRaveling] (https://twitter.com/GeorgeRaveling/) ) is an 82-year-old living legend and Nike’s former Director of International Basketball. Coach Raveling was the first African-American head basketball coach in the PAC-8 (now PAC-12). On August 28, 1963, at age 26, while volunteering as security at the March on Washington, Raveling would humbly [become the guardian] (https://www.cbsnews.com/news/guardian-of-history-mlks-i-have-a-dream-speech-lives-on/) of what we have come to know as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Coach Raveling has held head coaching positions at Washington State, the University of Iowa, and USC. Following a prolific basketball coaching career, he joined Nike at the request of Phil Knight, where he played an integral role in signing a reluctant Michael Jordan. He’s also been inducted into the [Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame] (http://www.hoophall.com/) and the [National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame] (https://collegebasketballexperience.com/hall-of-fame/) .

We covered a lot of ground in that first interview, including how Coach Raveling came to own the original copy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, how his practice team ended up beating the 1984 US Olympic Dream Team in basketball, how he helped convince Michael Jordan to sign with Nike, and much more. I strongly urge you to [listen to that conversation] (https://tim.blog/2018/08/09/george-raveling/?utm_source=podcast&utm_medium=podcast&utm_campaign=podcast-description) about Coach’s life, philosophies, and lessons learned. I invited George back on the podcast to hear his thoughts on everything that is happening right now. These are difficult and uncertain times for millions of people, and my heart goes out to each and every person navigating the depths of sadness, anger, and fear. As you’ll hear in today’s episode, Coach Raveling has great hope. He’s seen many changes in his lifetime, and we can all strive to be the positive change agents that he implores us to be. Please enjoy this timely—and timeless—conversation with Coach George Raveling. *** If you enjoy the podcast, would you please consider [leaving a shortreviewon Apple Podcasts] (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-tim-ferriss-show/id863897795?mt=2) /iTunes?It takes less than 60 seconds, and it really makes a difference in helping to convince hard-to-get guests.

How often do you read a book or an article and then look back a couple of weeks later to realize you barely remember anything from it? [Readwise] (http://readwise.io/tim) solves this problem by integrating with Kindle, Pocket, iBooks, Instapaper, and more to send you a daily digest of all your highlights. On average, their users report remembering 84% more of what they’ve read and highlighted. It helps you build a fun, daily habit of reviewing and actually using the hundreds of highlights that are just sitting in your reading devices, collecting cyber-dust, and doing nothing for you.

#421: Dr. Jane Goodall — The Legend, The Lessons, The Hope

Dr. Jane Goodall — The Legend, The Lessons, The Hope | Brought to you by [ExpressVPN] (http://expressvpn.com/tim) and [LinkedIn Marketing Solutions] (https://linkedin.com/TFS) . “The greatest danger to our future is apathy.” — Dr. Jane Goodall Dr. Jane Goodall( [@JaneGoodallInst] (http://instagram.com/JaneGoodallinst) ) was born on April 3rd, 1934, in London England. At the young age of 26, she followed her passion for animals and Africa to Gombe, Tanzania, where she began her landmark study of chimpanzees in the wild,­ immersing herself in their habitat as a neighbor rather than a distant observer. Her discovery in 1960 that chimpanzees make and use tools rocked the scientific world and redefined the relationship between humans and animals. In 1977, she established the [Jane Goodall Institute] (http://janegoodall.org/tim) (JGI) to advance her work around the world and for generations to come. JGI continues the field research at Gombe and builds on Dr.Goodall’s innovative approach to conservation, which recognizes the central role that people play in the well-being of animals and the environment. In 1991, she founded Roots & Shoots, a global program that empowers young people in nearly 60 countries to act as the informed conservation leaders that the world so urgently needs. Today, Dr. Goodall travels the world, speaking about the threats facing chimpanzees, environmental crises, and her reasons for hope. In her books and speeches, she emphasizes the interconnectedness of all living things and the collective power of individual action. Dr. Goodall is a UN Messenger of Peace and Dame Commander of the British Empire. The next chapter of Dr. Jane Goodall’s life’s work unfolds in a brand-new documentary, [Jane Goodall: The Hope] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_Kir4OvgLo) , premiering on Earth Day, April 22nd, at 9E/8C on Nat Geo, Nat Geo WILD, and Nat Geo Mundo. The two-hour special takes viewers through the chapters of Dr. Goodall’s journey in the 60 years since her groundbreaking discoveries researching wild chimpanzees in Gombe, including her activism, creation of her non-profit organization the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI), and [Roots & Shoots youth program] (https://www.rootsandshoots.org/) , along with her current efforts to inspire the next generation. Dr. Goodall’s work through the Jane Goodall Institute is advanced through the generous support of people like you and me.To show your support, visit [janegoodall.org/tim] (http://janegoodall.org/tim) .
