Thanks for checking out the Weekly Learning Roundup. These bite-sized, weekly posts are designed to give you a quick hit of interesting learnings and articles I came across this week.

It’s a motley assortment of tips, resources, and links that will hopefully give you a bit of inspiration for the upcoming week. Enjoy!

What I’m reading —

On Receiving (and Truly Hearing) Radical Candor by First Round Review

I really enjoyed this read. It was particularly helpful in understanding the importance of giving honest feedback. I often find myself tiptoeing around a piece of critical feedback but that does more harm than good for both me and the person I’m working with.


The above chart is really helpful in understanding where “Radical Candor” lies. The goal for me is to move more of my conversations from Quadrant 1 to Quadrant 2.

Books, documentaries, or podcast episodes I’m enjoying —

The Ultimate Success Formula | Joseph McClendon III’s 4 steps to getting what you want by The Tony Robbins Podcast

This is a great formula to setting yourself up for success in any aspect of life. And it’s remarkably simple:

  1. Define your outcome
  2. Know your “why”
  3. Take massive action
  4. Learn how to celebrate
  5. (If it’s not working) Change your approach

For me, the part that I need to do a better job of is Step 4. I often feel a little empty when I hit milestones or achieve the goal because I don’t take the time to celebrate it. Part of “defining your outcome” should be celebrating the milestones and achievement along the way.

A quote that’s inspiring me —

Do not allow negative thoughts to enter your mind for they are the weeds that strangle confidence.

— Bruce Lee
