Quotes from This Episode
Didn’t See It Coming is Available Now!
Find yourself fighting cynicism, too?
Didn’t See It Coming tackles the seven core issues that take people out: cynicism, compromise, disconnectedness, irrelevance, pride, burnout, and the emptiness of success and provides strategies on how to combat each.
I wrote the book because no 18 year old sets out to be cynical, jaded and disconnected by age 35. Yet it happens all the time.
The good news is that if you’ve grown cynical you don’t need to stay a cynic. There’s hope, and there’s help.
