Full episode at Cal Newport Podcast: Ep.284, Feel-Good Productivity with Ali Abdaal
The clip above runs for a minute from around the 44 minute mark

I was catching up with my Cal Newport episodes this morning, when I heard that little clip above. It reminded me that the things in life, that you can talk most easily about (with authority), are the things that you have the most experience with; the things that you carry the scars of.

Like Mandy Brown or Taleb do.
Like Cheryl Strayed does.
Like Roosevelt’s, Man in the Area.
Like Rachel.

The best things happen the easiest, when you use your scars.
Write that fucking book, indeed.
