An interview Tim Ferriss did with comedian Bill Burr is the basis for today’s show. Enjoy!

Summary

I do this show regularly in an effort to instigate some thinking on your part, having you connect with a thought in some way, shape or form is useful?
I was listening to an interview that Tim Ferriss did on his show with a comedian by the name of Bill Burr. Burr spoke about something that happened when he was young, where he was still working his way up the ranks. He was dating someone, making them dinner, and in the middle of the evening, paused for a second and called in to see if he had an opportunity to go on stage at a comedy club. If he gets a, "yes," he tells the woman, "Okay, I'll be back, probably in about an hour and a half. But hang in there. I'll be back. We'll finish dinner and have a lovely time."
So, the woman asks him, "so how much do they pay?"
"Eight bucks." He goes off and he kills it and has a great performance. Just knocks it out and he comes back to his apartment, and he is in such a great mood. He is dancing, he is flying. She pauses for a second and says, "You know, Bill, I wish I had a job where I could make 8 bucks and be dancing like you are."
Folks, I'll asked you the question. If you're not dancing, why are you doing it? Why are you putting up with it?
Life is way too short. As I've said on the show before, a lifetime is not a long time. We like to think of ourselves as being immortal but life has a way of showing us how foolish we are.
Folks, you should be dancing through your life in such joy and delight and if you aren't, maybe it's time to sit down and figure out what to do differently. If you think a coach could help you, I'd love to coach you. Email me at JeffAltman@TheBigGameHunter.us and, in the subject line, put the word "coaching." Describe the situation to me. We'll schedule a time to speak. But I simply say, think like Bill Burr. Are you dancing?

Want to Hire People With Drive? | No BS Hiring Advice


Cal Fussman is an American journalist and writer for Esquire’s, “What I’ve Learned” column. He shares a great insight from a remarkable and surprising source.

Summary

Hi, I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. I'm called the Big Game Hunter because I coach people I want to coach people to play their professional and personal games big.
Now, I was listening to a podcast this morning Tim Ferriss from the 4-Hour Work Week was interviewing Cal Fussman who's an American journalist and a writer for Esquire and the column that he writes is "What I've Learned." There was a great lesson that Cal shared from the interview he did with Dr. Dre. I know you're going to be surprised that I'm using dr. Dre as a reference and, if you are, too bad, it's a great lesson that he got.
Fussman asked him, " So, when you're working on a project and you're really into it, how long is it before you get some sleep?" And dr. Dre tells him. "Oh, man. When, I'm into something– – 72 hours. I can go without sleep."
If you're a startup and you want to hire some with a lot of juice, 72 hours. That's a great answer. If you're interviewing someone and you ask that question and reference, dr. Dre and they give you, "Oh, I need my eight hours," they may be a good hire but not for a project that really takes a lot of passion and drive and energy. They may be a good operational person but not the one that's going to be in the trenches driving things, who's going to be pushing to excel, who's going to be doing whatever it takes to deliver something on time within budget that is extraordinary.
If that's what you're looking for, if you’re a startup . . . Man, that's your question to ask. If you're working for a large firm, you may not want to hear 72 hours as the answer. You may want to hear something in the 20s or 30s or whatever the number is. But reference the Dr.Dre story.
Cal Fussman who's interviewed people like Mikhail Gorbachev and many other successful individuals swears by this question. If you look him up, visit Wikipedia Then look up where you like. As a matter of fact, go to Tim. Tim Ferriss' podcast and listen to it again. Cal Fussman is his name.

Becoming Undeniable

Becoming Undeniable | The No BS Coaching Advice Podcast

A Tim Ferriss interview is the basis for this podcast.

Summary

I was listening to a podcast this morning from Tim Ferriss where he interview the actor Vince Vaughn. What do you like his movies are not, Vaughn's movies are successful. He spoke about the early days of his career, moving from Illinois to California in order to become a better actor. For those of you are aware that profession, I'm sure you relate to these comments you made-- going to auditions are not hearing anything, working at his craft and trying to get better. Getting further along on his auditions and try to get better until eventually got to screen test will you play off of someone who is already in the cast. In order for them to see if there was any chemistry. And that he would get turned down.

For those of you thinking about your career or your life, I think there's something he said next, I think is so important for all of us to hear. Is the idea of choosing at a particular moment to go back and review where he was… There was a with you gotten so far in his career. He was still being turned down, just further along in the process. If the role, if you rejected for a large part, you just go back to doing small parts waiting for another opportunity.

What he realized he had to do was become undeniable, that there could be no good reason to turn him down. He focused on his craft and focused on his profession to the point where no one could turn him down.

Whether it is that it as a job hunter or in your business whether it is in your profession, the idea becoming masterful in your craft to the point where you are undeniable is a message that I think is useful for all of us to hear.

Becoming undeniable is a job hunter is not just simply the ability to have a great work history. It's about clicking on your interviews and in your job search. As a business owner, it's about having a compelling business proposition business proposition and compelling sales proposition and that makes people want to choose you.

There are so many places where this notion of being undeniable is something that we all need to be reminded of.
