Ep 5 How Not To Get Hosed in the Game of Life

In this week's episode we highlight a commencement speech given by David Foster Wallace titled "This Is Water." If you have not listened to his talk, you can find it here. I highly recommend listening to it. We discuss the metaphor of being a fish in water, cite quotes from the talk by David Foster Wallace, discuss the concepts of the ego, cognitive behavioral therapy and the ABC model devised by Albert Ellis, why choosing what to think and how to think about it matters more than knowledge, how our thoughts create much of our reality and why making the choice to choose how we think isn't simply a matter of virtue. 

If you would like to leave your us a voice message, we would love to hear from you. We welcome your questions and will do our best to address them on the show.
