Podcast: The Tim Ferriss Show
Guest: Caroline Paul
Caroline feature on Tim's podcast recently. A powerful, inspirational Stanford graduate who found her place working as a firefighter in San Francisco. She has also published four books with her latest being the New York Times best seller 'The Gutsy Girl'.
My take away, from what was a great interview, was her view on fear and how we should see it. She stresses she isn't against fear as such. She is simply pro bravery. Fear is always just one factor in the equation she says. The key is recognising the other factors at play, be it excitement, reluctance, questioning etc. Stop and think about what you are REALLY looking at in any given scenario. And ask yourself WHAT am I really scared of. Try to look at it like a brick wall. Try to put the brick in the correct order, before taking action. Fear doesn't have to be first.
