IE037 - Vulnerability Isn't Everything

This week the Goodboys discuss Brene Brown's "Daring Greatly" and why Josh wasn't into it as well as Josh's recent work on himself to undo years of psychological issues and misled principles due to guilt and shame. Also, Josh is excited to write again because of Stephen King. The talk then moves to productivity, workflow and disciplinary practices in how Josh and Andy plan out (or don't plan) their respective work days, and how lack of motivation, distraction and anxiety are so prevalent in society's approach to being creative and getting things done. We touch on how Andy's new album preorder is going and how it differs from previous releases now that he is on a label and we close with talking about views on college education, our own (very different) experiences and how we think of it in relation to our kids.
