“In those moments when you have something bigger than you, to be or not to becomes to be. Maybe that’s the secret, always have something bigger than you.” – Kamal Ravikant
Kamal Ravikant is a bestselling author, serial tech entrepreneur, and Managing Partner at Evolve VC, an early stage Venture Capital fund. Harper One recently re-released his bestseller. Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On it. His first novel, Rebirth, was published by Hachette Books in January 2017.
Kamal has served as an infantry soldier in the United States Army, hiked the Camino de Santiago in Spain, and traveled to Nepal to study meditation with Bonn Buddhist monks. You can find him on Twitter @kamalravikant
In 2017 I listened to a podcast about a person walking a series of pilgrimages known as the Camino de Santiago. I remember this story vividly. Why, because in the words of the great American novelist Harry Crews, the good shit sticks. You just remember. This story unfolded between podcast host James Altucher and his guest and remarkable friend, Kamal Ravikant.
Thus, when the opportunity to record a podcast with Kamal presented itself, I felt like I just won the podcast lottery. Not only was this a chance to learn from a champion storyteller but a window into a style of thinking and mental models I have yet to explore.
In this podcast, we discuss the craft of writing, a lot about death, war, Shakespeare, walking, my dad, pain, what it means to love yourself, and a lot more.
My father is phenomenal at the craft of helping war veterans and my mother at art. The majority of my podcast guests have a painfully earned but thoughtfully executed ability to develop successful startups.
Kamal has dedicated years to develop the craft of writing. However, he has another ability that I believe goes unrecognized in society; he’s a master at being alive. He is skilled at being a human being.
This conversation with Kamal is a gift! After 150+ episodes in Spanish, my mom and dad can now listen to their son in my first English episode. It’s euphoric, to say the least.
To my parents, Kamal, my friends, and my audience, you can always make more money but not more time. Thanks for listening.
