In this episode we talk about how to “design for your strengths” and also expand time through choosing experiences that have depth and breadth.

John also explains:

  • what he means by “innovate the human experience” 
  • the differences between chronological time and experiential time 
  • why time speeds up as we age
  • what crying has to do with slowing down time
  • what “event horizon moments” are and why are they important
  • what “flow state” means and how you know you’re in it
  • the difference between being afraid of something and being bad at something
  • what public speaking has to do with all of this
