About 9 months ago I was introduced to this great little PDF guide about being remarkable and it really changed my mindset on what is possible and what we can do in the world. At the time I was really busy launching Alt-MBA and discussing a book a week, and I had been wanting to post on this guide for some time.
I caught up with the author Chris a few Guillebeau months ago, and we had this podcast interview. I will once again credit Matt Cheney for his yoeman’s work editing this interview.
All I ever wanted,
All I ever needed,
is here in my arms,
Words are very unnecessary,
They can only do harm.

How often have you felt this way? You know you’ve got all these intense emotions that get brought to the surface, and you end up getting in an argument which isn’t what you want at all. It was until recently that I started to realize my role in all the arguments that I’ve gotten into over the years. I’m one of those sneaky poor communicators. I seem to be really great at communication until you see me in an argument, and I don’t get in arguments all that often, so its rare to see me at my worst. Unfortunately for those closest to me, I really do have issues with communication when I’m passionate about things and I’m trying to communicate.
