Hugh discussed on The One You Feed


Up that one time and you're like and that's the thing that you keep thinking about as opposed to the hundreds of times since that you've done really magnificent things and i think our brains i don't know why are just wired for that sort of maybe if we're aware of the missteps we've made we won't make them again. Maybe it's a protective mechanism but the idea of not thinking of the other things you can do is so much or useful and kinetic not to turn this into a conversation about me. But i was having a conversation with my coach the other day about this very thing and i was reflecting these concerns. About the changing media landscape that media landscape is changing and smelly independent producers are getting squeezed people like us tons of money coming into blah blah blah. So i'm worried about that. Which is a valid thing to be worried about and he just said but why do you think you're not gonna figure that out. You figured every other change out for the last seven years you've navigated all the challenges that have come. Why is it that you think this one. You won't and i didn't have a really good answer to that. Except you know yeah. It's that human tendency to sort of look for what's wrong. I've become more and more clear on how that negativity bias that were wired with really impacts. Us it's our nature of this where the brain is doing. It's like a problem problem problem anywhere you know looking for problems and so this idea of instead of when i'm looking at my doubts is to sort of repeat my hopes. Yeah and i think too that we're so afraid of because our world now so precarious that hugh make one mistake. Oh you could fall off a cliff suddenly or oh you could lose your entire career and everything you have and your home your family and everything like one mistake instead of feeling like no everything you've already built is a really solid foundation and you have friends and colleagues at work and you're going to be more okay than you think because of all you've done all the people have already reached and that sort of idea of safety and progress is really in complete opposite to what our brain tells us what our culture tells us somewhat. Our economy tells us about what our trajectories could be. I'm going to get us through all seven steps here. Believe it or not step. Three is be resourceful. And i'm gonna pull one line out from there. And then i'd love to just ask you what you'd like to talk about from that section but the line that struck me as resourcefulness. The art of finding treasure everywhere. So the idea of resourcefulness is the idea of creativity for people who don't think they're creative. Resourcefulness is oh. I know how to use these tools. That i already have or i know who to call to get this done or i know how this supply chain works and i'm going to access this point to get what you need to you at. What time and people when they hear the word resourceful they say. Oh i can do that. I can tap into things. I can tap into resources. I can work with what i have. But if you say creative people say oh. I'm not an artist. I don't paint. And they're the same sort of words when we get into the idea of building anything like building your life for building your project or building a goal and resourcefulness really is that sort of. I'm going to observe. And i'm going to apply and i'm just going to be in the most human human i can be because i think that's kind of the cross of what we are as creature. Is we find things. And we turn them into tools. And we turn those tools into entire civilizations and we've all got that going for us anything else about resourcefulness you wanna add..
