In this week’s Thursday Throwdown, I follow up on episode 100 with Ryan Holiday and his profound insights on how to approach life as a student. As men and fathers, we want to believe we have everything figured out, but in reality that’s impossible. That’s why it’s important to drop our egos and admit to ourselves, “I don’t know everything, but I’m going to learn as much as I can.”
What’s the difference between confidence and ego, and how does ego hinder us from our own greatness both professionally and as a father? My guest today on episode 100 of the Good Dad Project is Ryan Holiday, NY Times Bestselling author of Ego is the Enemy. He’s also a brand new dad to a three-month-old son. Listen as he illuminates us on the difference between being confident and being egotistical, and how to surrender the ego to become a student of life.
