Neil Pasricha Says You’re Awesome (And You Are) – This Week’s Six Pixels of Separation Podcast

Posted by

Episode #697 of Six Pixels of Separation is now live and ready for you to listen to.

I’m a very lucky human being. I get to call Neil Pasricha my friend. Neil is the author of six books. Let’s start with, The Book of Awesome, a spinning rolodex of simple pleasures based on his 100-million-hit, award-winning blog, 1000 Awesome Things. Then there’s, The Happiness Equation, originally written as a 300-page love letter to his unborn son on how to live a happy life. After that was, Awesome Is Everywhere, an interactive introduction to guided meditation for children. He then published, How To Get Back Up, a memoir of failure and resilience released as an Audible Original. He is a publishing juggernaut. His books are New York Times and #1 international bestsellers, and have sold millions of copies across dozens of languages. He also speak to groups (a lot). His first TED talk, The 3 A’s of Awesome, is ranked as one of the 10 Most Inspiring of all time, and his second is called, How do you maximize your tiny, short life?, an artistic side-project called the world’s first TED Listen, composed entirely of questions. His podcast is a personal favorite as well. It’s called 3 Books, and it’s a 15-year-long mission to uncover and discuss the 1000 most formative books in the world. Each of the 333 chapters unpacks the 3 most formative books of an inspiring individual like Judy Blume, Chris Anderson of TED, the world’s greatest Uber driver, or David Sedaris. His latest book is titled, You Are Awesome – How to navigate change, wrestle with failure and live an intentional life. Enjoy the conversation…
