Today on the show, I have a (digital) face-to-face chat with Geoff Colvin. He’s the author of Humans are Underrated: What High Achievers Know That Machines Never Will. You’ll leave this conversation with a renewed confidence in your humanness and some guidance on how to bring out your best in a way that keeps you relevant in an age of technology.
- “Our humanness is going to turn out to be the most valuable thing we’ve got.”
- “Less rationally, less perfectly, more humanly.”
- “Telling someone the truth is, in fact, the kindest thing you can do.”
- “Our deep instincts about how to interact with other people will often guide us in a way that pure rationality can’t.”
