    Hey Joel & Ryan,

    There are some sharp points in here, and I like how you clarified “ego” vs. “the ego”. I think “the ego” can be in fact very helpful and drive you towards what you want with a source of purpose and clarity. “Ego” is what happened when Conor McGregor stepped up to Nate Diaz and he was shot down.

    Love both fighters, but he was speaking on being invincible, basically, which is the exact thing Ryan warned about. I also appreciate your layout for creating a plan and sticking to it with your purpose, instead of getting lost in your “passion” for something.

    Makes me want to pick up the book and add it to the enormous stack on my reading list already 🙂

    Thanks fellas!

    I just finished reading Ryan’s new book and I learnt so much about controlling my ego. Ryan presents some interesting ideas on the podcast and I didn’t know much about the whole American Apparel story. He’s clearly very clever but it’s hard to believe he’s still so young. He talks a bit about working too hard which is something that we all suffer from. It’s good to have more people like Ryan talking about this subject and try to change our perceptions.
