Joined in studio by behavioural strategist Dr. Max McKeown, author of the new book #NOW: The Surprising Truth About the Power of Now.
Discussion guide from my conversation with Dr. Max McKeown:
1. Why did you decide to write your new book? How did you get interested in the subject of nowists and nowism?
2. What is a Nowist mindset? How can we spot different kinds of Nowist and Thenist?
3. You say that its only worth paying the “right pain for the right gain”, can you explain more?
4. How can we learn to ride stress like a mule? How can we use the energy of life to keep moving forward?
5. What do Nowists need at work? And from their leaders?
6. What’s the link between Nowism, Strategy and Innovation?
7. Psychology of moving forward, and some of the research behind it.
