In this week’s meeting, Michael Schechter of 5by5's Mikes On Mics shares his life-long struggle with productivity, optimizing past the point of "good enough", figuring out how to make his potentially off-putting personality work to his advantage, and having what he outputs reflect who he truly is, at least in that very moment.
In addition, we discuss how early adopters are always romanticized as technological trend setters for the mainstream public, why geeks are addicted to trying out anything slightly different to what they already have, and how we always fruitlessly project our willingness to change onto others.
It concludes with Michael completing step five by admitting that due to his privileged upbringing, most of his so-called "problems" are not as dire to solve as opposed to ones faced by 99% of the population at large.
