I used to be in recruiting and conducted thousands of interviews. In almost every single interview I, people say they want the same thing: “I want a place where I can grow”.

When I would press them on it - “What does growth mean for you?” - nearly all of them didn’t have an answer. Or the answer was something like, “I want to be able to contribute to the organization.”

I thought this was fascinating because we all intuitively know we want and need to grow.

But very few of us know what that actually means.

For many years, my wife, Alyssa, and I have had the argument about what is the “better way” to do hard things.

For example: 

  • Do you never have sugar/carbs or do you allow a cheat day?
  • Is it better to train for a half-marathon by running with friends long distances or by doing sprints alone during the weekend? 
  • Do you create new habits in your life by getting an accountability buddy or by taking the time to write out your purpose and your “why” in creating the habit?

Here’s the thing: 

When it comes to doing “Hard Things” or changing your behavior, all of them could be right OR none of them…. Wait what?

OK - the real answer is IT DEPENDS.

Why? Because not everything will work for everyone. Unfortunately, so much research and personal development advice out there is about “the best way” for all humans. But for many things in life - from nutrition, to running, to saving for retirement, to remembering to put your car keys in the same place - not everything is going to work for everyone. 

So how do you know what’s really going to work for you? 

One way is by learning how your personal expectations (and the expectations of others) influence your behavior. 

If you get this one thing right, it makes choosing a training plan, accomplishing financial goals, and even making a career change and finding your car keys so much easier. 

Learn how to do this by listening to our latest episode of the podcast with Gretchen Rubin, the author of “The Happiness Project” and “Better Than Before.”

Today’s podcast episode is not a normal episode where Scott interviews some awesome person and you get to glean from all the insight and inspiration.

It’s not even one of those episodes where Scott brings you awesome knowledge-bombs by himself or a co-host.

Today, we’re sharing an interview that Scott had on another podcast - so Scott gets to be in the hot seat, answering tons of questions - specifically about strengths.

You're going to learn:

  • The six critical things people need from their work
  • Why strengths are different than skills and why that matters
  • How identifying your anti-strengths can skyrocket your self-awareness

So today’s guest interviewer is Pete Mockaitis of the podcast “How to Be Awesome At Your Job.” (He was actually a guest on this podcast back in episode 205)
