    P.S. What IS the dipsy doodle dirty diaper dandy anyway?

    • Great question Carol “What IS the dipsy doodle dirty diaper dandy anyway?”

      • @JamesSchramko:disqus @iatot1x:disqus We may never truly know … ; )

      No Carol. We love Ezra but your “WAGER!” is sublime. Just sayin.

    Thank you dynamic duo (or is it the wonder twins?) for the time and effort you put into this podcast.

    I particularly love the background stories that come out along the way like “back when I worked for a crazy scottish perfectionist” or “when I ran a hot yoga studio”.

    Ezra, you are a super cool dude, a stream-of-consciousness thinker and a passionate connection maker. I’m most interested in learning from your empathic skills. James, you are a rationalist, wielding Occam’s razor and a flexible focusmaster, I hope to learn effective minimalism from you.

    Question: what is your main superpower and what’s your greatest weakness?

    hey guys, thanks for another great episode. Seeings as James mentioned something about running and tackling hills one at a time, I came across this great quote that is timely in so many ways…
    “Mandela has walked a long road, and now stands at the top of the hill. A traveller would sit and admire the view. But the man of destiny knows that beyond this hill lies another and another. The journey is never complete. As he contemplates the next hill, I hold out my hand to Mr Mandela – in friendship and in co-operation.” FW de Klerk.

    Guys, this is the most underrated episode so far! Listened to it again today and it amazed me. Understood some things that I’ve been doing wrong immediately. Also, it helped me confirm some decisions that I doubted. I highly recommend to everyone to listen it 3 or even 4 times! I keep finding those short sentences that trigger the ‘aha’ moments quite often.
