Featured Guest Ainsley Brittain
Featured Book "How to Begin" by Michael Bungay Stanier

Episode Summary

This is still 2 Pages with MBS, the podcast where brilliant people read the best 2 pages from a favourite book, but now there’s a twist! It’s me reading 2 pages from my new book, and inviting brilliant people to reflect on what they’re hearing.

Ainsley Brittain is my co-conspirator at MBS.works; pretty much the other half of the company. She’s a lovely person, friend, and colleague, and since we are both full-time, full-hearted, and full-brained workers on this project, Ainsley has actually influenced the book, making her the perfect guest for today’s ‘How To Begin’ episode.

Michael reads two pages from his upcoming book, ‘How To Begin.’ [reading begins at 4:30]

Hear us discuss:

  • Mitigating risk: “Data is so grounding.” [8:18]
  • Learning to trust yourself. [12:10]
  • “When you commit to that process and loosen your grip on the outcome you’re hoping for, you’re more likely to get where you’re supposed to be.” [14:47]
  • The Conspiracy – MBS.works [15:04]
