In episode 2 of “Post-Modern Living with Chris The Brain,” Chris and Kait talk about the terrible advice often given to smart, driven, passionate, and creative individuals. They also discuss some of their favorite good advice, then cool down with some tips on organizing your smartphone.
A lot of advice that people think is great is actually horrible. Chris and Kait explain why they think “Follow your passion,” “Suck it up,” “Work hard enough and you’ll be successful,” and “Buy a house” fall into that category.
On the opposite side of the spectrum, the co-hosts mention some common advice that they think is actually helpful. This list includes “Don’t sweat the petty things, and don’t pet the sweaty things,” “Problems can not be solved with the same level of consciousness that created them,” “A bird in hand is worth two in the bush,” and “It’s okay not to be okay.”
Wrapping up the episode on a more fun note, Chris and Kait discuss why disorganized smartphones make them angry and share some tips for getting your phone under control. Check out Chris's super-organized smartphone:
