Hello Everyone! Today on Build Your Utopia our Hosts Josh Marsden and Ben Thompson talk about Pat Flynn's interview and episode 50!
They guys might get off on a couple tangents on this episode, but trust them, they do bring it back around.
Thanks to Pat Flynn, Ben and Josh spend some time talking about Gamification and how it can benefit multiple parts of your every day life. Ben admits that he is a sucker for gamification and uses it at least 4 different apps every day. (Check out Zombies, Run! on the iTunes App Store). The conversation of gamification naturally leads to talks of the Apple Watch and the type of functionality it will bring to the market.
Josh and Ben also reflect on Pat Flynn's point of view on what an "F" grade in school really means. From Josh's point of view as a father, if his son receives an "F", that doesn't mean he is a bad person or a poor student, it just means that particular subject is something that needs more attention.
Our hosts also talk about how Pat Flynn turns both his success stories and his failures into a lesson for the people that follow him. How easy is it to tell people your honest story? Just tell people what worked and what didn't work, that way the folks that look up to you and follow you will learn from everything you've done. It makes you a smart friend instead of someone to compete against.
Ben and Josh also reflect on Pat Flynn's philosophy of building his life around what is most important to him. Most people have a job and they fit their life in around their job. Pat has taken the opposite approach and fits his work around his family. It isn't something easy to create, but it is achievable if you are committed to it and put in the effort.
