David Cohen talks with Patrick Ewers, the founder and CEO of MindMaven, about leveraging your relationships and getting out of the trap of ‘I don’t have time’ to free up 8+ hours per week.
Patrick Ewers describes his work as helping people achieve true greatness, or as our host David Cohen calls it, giving people superpowers. But there is a funny thing about the term “true greatness”.
“When you look at the word true greatness, I think it's the most subjective term you will ever come across, especially in the world we're working in. For some, it is that they really want to reach the top, they want to become the next Elon Musk. Most people want to just reach the fullest potential, build something bigger than themselves, or leave a legacy. … So it doesn't really matter what your true greatness is. We help you achieve it by focusing on relationships.”
Why relationships? It’s because no one has achieved true greatness without the help of others. It’s wired into the way of the world. However, most people don’t take care to nurture these relationships.
Listen to Patrick describe importance versus urgency, and some practical solutions to fix your work-related relationship problems.
Also, don’t miss how Patrick developed the idea of Mindmaven, how building relationships can produce game-changing results for you, and why it’s important to hire an engagement manager who will help free up your time up to 8+ hours per week.
The duo also dives into positive alacrity. There is so much information packed in this single episode!
