Episode intro: Lyle McKeany is a real world version of the Dos Equis Man. He has played at Ozzfest under a major record label, been a professional poker player, founded startups, and married twice. Now he writes about life, being the father of a disabled kid, and uses his broad experience to share universal themes. We dive into mastery, what makes a life well lived, Lyle’s various projects, being honest with yourself, and unexpected things like Stoicism and golf. Lyle is one of those people you meet and realize he is fully living, and I love talking with him.
Sponsor: The Citizen Within is a micro-publication by Rob Hardy. It’s an oasis for thoughtful, concerned citizens who care about leaving the world in better shape than we found it, so future generations can flourish. Basically, it’s a place for people who read the famous Margaret Mead quote, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has,” and feel inspired and called to action.
