“2+2=5” or The "Lollapalooza" Effect
A member of my CEO Focus peer group mentioned a session he had attended at a conference that has been valuable on a day to day basis in his business. When he mentioned it, I recalled a podcast I had listened to that was an interview of the same person. The podcast title is “The Art of Letting Other People Have Your Way.” That sums up the purpose of much of our communication.
Podcasts (and audio books) are a great way to learn while driving or doing mundane tasks around the house or the office. I guarantee it is a better use of your time than listening to the news. Listening to podcasts is both efficient (high output with low resource consumption) and effective (producing value). This creates something of a "lollapalooza" effect as Charlie Munger calls it. When 2 things combine they can create something that is greater than the sum of their parts... thus "2+2=5". Take advantage of these opportunities anytime you can. Experiment to find them. Because listening to them combines efficiency and effectiveness, Podcasts can fall into this category. My 3 favorites are:
What other podcasts have you found worthwhile? What other speakers have you heard at conferences that stimulated your thinking? Email them to me and I will compile them on my blog.
