Featured Guest Eric Klein
Featured Book "How to Begin" by Michael Bungay Stanier

Episode Summary

Michael’s new book How to Begin: Start Doing Something that Matters is now available at www.HowToBegin.com.

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.

I was in a mastermind group for about 15 years – we were a gathering of people who had something in common, but there was also a lot we didn’t have in common. An enduring friendship from that time is the one I have with Eric Klein, someone who is very precious to me, someone I love having in my life, and someone who’s just a mensch.

Michael reads two pages from his upcoming book, ‘How To Begin.’ [reading begins at 6:35]

Hear us discuss:

  • “There is an individual greatness that you are here to incarnate, express, and live out.” [11:23]
  • Owning your qualities. [11:58]
  • The shadowy side of qualities: “The quality will not care how it comes about, it’s gonna follow the architecture of your psyche into the world.” [14:36]
