In this episode, Zain Raza shares what he has learned from studying the ideas of Stephen Wolfram, the brilliant physicist and entrepreneur behind Wolfram Research, an institution that has made an impact second to none in the realm of mathematical computing software. Preparing for the Wolfram Summer School, Zain has also enjoyed listening to Wolfram's thoughts (linked below) on the overall future of automation, and what role we as human beings will be able to play in it. This is going to be a psychological episode, and I hope you walk away being more willing to ask yourself candidly questions such as these: how am I determining the objectives I want to pursue? What are the goals I'm creating from that? Only then are in the best place to start using technology to start automating the process of reaching your desired outcomes. Please listen to this episode carefully, as this is Jungian psychology (based off the work of Carl Jung), so if it doesn't make sense at first, don't blame yourself. Stick with it, do more of your own background research. To help your understanding, I included a personal story of how a recent relationship quagmire with a close relative forced me to reexamine my goals, and how I went about doing it. As well, I included a link below to a video interview of Stephen Fry, a famous British actor, comedian, and writer, who uses the Greek myth about Prometheus and fire to discuss how our fears of one another can be the source of our weakness, among other things (based on my interpretation). Take a deep look into this episode folks, I am confident it'll help take you closer to your best success path today!
