Another really interesting person interviewed on The Tim Ferris Show podcast. As usual with episodes on The Tim Ferriss Show, it includes insight into making your life better, including “the single attribute that leads to greatness in any field”. Check out Brain Pickings too, if you haven’t heard about it and you like reading about all kinds of interesting things on different subjects.

Founded in 2006 as a weekly email to seven friends, BrainPickings now gets more than 5 million readers per month (!). I read very few blogs regularly, but BrainPickings is one of the few that makes the cut. It’s a treasure trove.

This episode answers the top-10 most popular questions you all had for Maria, including:

  • The single attribute that leads to greatness in any given field
  • Required reading and habits for anyone in public office
  • How Henry David Thoreau was the first to talk about the dangers of sitting
  • Why we must stop referring to our work as “content”
