Future Squared with Steve Glaveski - Helping You Navigate a Brave New World.

Jul 8, 2018

James Nguyen is the co-founder and managing partner of Anti-Hero Capital, the first investment fund exclusively dedicated to investing in blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies using evolutionary science. He previously founded the global app agency M5859 Apps, is a contributing writer at Forbes and is somebody that I would consider deeply introspective and curious, as you’ll discover in today’s episode.

Having known James for a few years, we decided to record a podcast episode together after catching up for brunch on a relatively cold Melbourne morning. Our gameplan? Talk about life.

And talk about life we did, getting into flow and exploring a number of topics in our two hour conversation, breaking a Future Squared record in the process previously.

We discussed:

  • The Critical Importance of Finding Purpose and Meaning
  • How to Break Out of Moulds of Societal Convention
  • How to Stay the Path When Giving Up is Easier
  • Decision Making and How to Avoid Paralysis Analysis
  • First Principles
  • Evaluating Orders of Consequence
  • Imposter Syndrome
  • Values Alignment and Personal and Professional Relationships
  • Biological Evolution and Neuroscience
  • Getting into Flow
  • The Intimacy Vacuum
  • How to Maintain Your Enthusiasm for Things Once the Initial Shine Wears Off
