James: How do you come up with those sayings? Do you just sit around and ponder them? Do they just pop out in a conversation, And you think, Oh, I like the sound of that. I’ll make a T shirt out of that. Like, what’s the process?
Rob: So I suppose, like you, James, I’ve done a lot of content. I’m at sort of just under the 1000 mark on episodes for podcasts. And when you do a lot of content, things do occasionally fly out of your mouth. And you think, that was actually quite good. A lot not, but a lot yes. I suppose if you play the guitar enough, and you just riff, you’re gonna come up with some cool melodies, probably a bit accidentally. So if people want to come up with, if you don’t risk anything, you risk everything, then you probably just want to increase your volume of content. And if things come out, like I could be in the middle of an interview like this, and something will come out and I go, Woah, woah, wait, that was actually good. I need to write that down. And you need to capture it when you get it. So that’s way number one.

Now, 15 years ago, I had a chip on my shoulder, I was arrogant, cocky, defensive, hurt, complacent. I was all wrong. And that’s why I was sort of not succeeding. And that kind of attitude, I don’t want to learn from that person, I don’t like that person, that person has ranty, shouty and they’re full of sh*t, you know, blah blah blah, you have to have the opposite view of that to develop your own self. You have to see the best in others to bring out the best in yourself. That was a good one. You have to see the best in others to bring out the best in yourself.
