Episode 294: Doing Hard Things

Show Notes

This week, we’re flashing back to when Vicky and Joe had a conversation about doing Hard Things, and why it’s valuable. They rambled their way around writing books, running businesses, winning competitions, and how getting to the top of your tree can often be boring and unpleasant—so we need to suck it up and do it—but also make it as much fun as possible. Do a hard thing today!

 Key Points
