Now to the show.

Today I share my conversation with creator of Origami Day, Samantha Lane. You can reach out to Samantha on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.

On today’s show, we start off talking, of all things, about chest surgery.

Samantha had her chest cut open in order to fix an apparent deficiency. 

That started her on a journey that led her to start Origami Day, an organization that focuses on helping people be more productive and use their time more efficiently.

It was a wonderful conversation that dealt with a lot of things including death, faith and more. 

Samantha left us some action items:

  1. Think about 1 year of what you want life to look like
  2. Create 3 Smart goals
  3. Make a plan every friday.

If you do this, you’ll find yourself with more direction than ever.

About the Podcast

The Hard Thing Podcast
The Hard Thing podcast is focused on helping people improve their lives by learning how to do hard things.

Listen as I interview guests who have overcome average by doing hard things. Each of us has to go up against difficult challenges, but it's not the challenge that defines you. It's your overcoming of the challenge. I'll try and extract the methods used to do hard things so that average people like you and me can replicate their success.
