Season 2 | Episode 9

Did you know all progress depends on the unreasonable man (woman)? Tune in as we discuss adapting the world to fit you, prioritizing correctly, and obtaining real confidence.

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”

 Arguably most of the tension in our lives is a result of a lack of prioritization. On this episode of the BYLU Campaign podcast, Daniel and Nathan discuss “Unreasonable Man,” the April article, which breaks down how to live by your priorities. Here we highlight how confidence is essential to prioritizing, the 3 stages people transition through to obtain real confidence, and provide practical tactics for executing your priorities. Tune in as Nate shares a few personal stories where he failed to prioritize correctly and the lessons he learned from them. 

The BYLU Takeaways:

  • You’re valuable, and no one is doing you a favor, so show-up as an equal.
  • You can’t blame someone for attempting to discount your value, but you can blame yourself for accepting the discounted rate.
  • Time isn’t made; it’s spent — budget your time how you budget your finances.
  • You don’t get credit for telling people they’re a priority in their life or even making people a priority with your actions. You only get credit when they feel like a priority.
