What do you do if you don't have a clear passion? Or if you used to have one, but now... not so much? In this C&C episode, we discuss an alternative to all of that advice about passion, and it may just change the way you approach your work. We also address ambition and Tall Poppy Syndrome, embracing the unknown and a profound story about erasers. Trust us on this one.

Episode #53: All The Things

What do you suck at? Or, more importantly, what do you let yourself suck at? We dive into some seriously awesome topics like why it’s important to suck at something and the relevance of a liberal arts education (yes, even for techies!). Plus, business models for interdisciplinary careers and the very important question of, “What’s keeping you?” That’s right: it’s a C&C episode covering all the things!

Episode #47: You Don't Have To Be A Superhuman

When is quitting a virtue? And why is “never give up” not necessarily the best advice? We discuss how to know when to stop and when to keep going; when to specialize and when to diversify. Stay tuned for a bunch of strategies like Christina’s Coffee Chat method and Cate’s personal anthropology approach. Plus, Adam Grant’s graduation advice, listener Venn Diagrams and what we’re each cutting out.
