The Most Interesting Woman in the World / Being Remarkable

"Some people go to sleep and have God appear in their dreams. I just looked her up" - Sudev Namboodiri


If you didn't pass 5th grade, you have no idea what that word means.

But, when something's remarkable - you know it when you see it. On this episode, we talk to the founders of a fake religion and then, one of Time's People of the Year to uncover how to transform your working life by being remarkable. Plus:

- How do you become the most interesting woman in the world?

- What happens when you meet strangers on the internet?

- What are the inner-mechanics of being remarkable and how can you use them to your advantage? 

- How do you build the foundation for a deep, focused career?

- What happened to Pardis Sabeti in 2015 that really, really sucked?

And more, all on this episode. 


The Facts

- Thanks so much to Pardis Sabeti for coming on - it was incredible. Here's her remarkable TED talk. And here's "Turkana Boy," which I can't get out of my head. Here's her profile in TIME. Follow her on Twitter.

- A lot of ideas on being remarkable come from two important books: So Good They Can't Ignore You by Cal Newport (one of the best books of all time) and Purple Cow by Seth Godin

- Here's the link to the Facebook Fan Page (The Church of Pardis Sabeti). It's hilarious.
