Marketing Podcast with Mark Manson
Podcast Transcript

Mark Manson headshotThis week on the podcast, I chat with best-selling author, blogger, and internet entrepreneur Mark Manson.

Manson is the author of the New York Times’ best-seller, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck. He’s described it as “a self-help book for people who hate self-help.” The book has sold over 8 million copies and has been translated into 25 languages.

Today we discuss his latest book, Everything is F*cked: A Book About Hope. Manson shares his tips for finding happiness and optimism in an unstable, pessimistic world.

Questions I ask Mark Manson:

  • With all of the issues in the world, has cursing become trifling?
  • You say that the opposite of happiness is hopelessness. How do we wrestle with that?
  • What are the benefits to suffering?

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • Why we have such a difficult time acting on all of the things that we want for our lives.
  • What mental habits we have that are having a negative effect on our psyches.
  • Why a little bit of boredom is a good thing.
