135: Attitude, Gratitude and Relative Success

April 4, 2019 at 3:26pm
This week, your boys unpack success relative to others, how to measure value, and scaling yourself away from the nuts and bolts of operations.

High points include:

  • Why comparing yourself to others—especially in earnings—is poison
  • Andrew's goal for his businesses
  • Building autonomy in team members
Also, Brett and Andrew have more than enough Field Notes™ notebooks.

Links — Brett totally meant to have this ready, but it's not. Surprise, surprise, right? But it will be soon.
