Legend is uncompromising

There’s hardly a conversation that I have with Kapil Gupta where I don’t leave challenged  to upgrade some aspect of my thinking, and this episode was no exception.  Knowing him as I do, I was particularly excited to explore his filter for relationships - both personal and business, and to understand the manner in which he distinguishes the real from the phony ones.  In a similar vain, I wanted to dig a bit deeper with him on a recent tweet where he suggested that conflicts between business partners can never be solved by ‘compromise’ alone - and, as always, his point of view is hard to argue.  

In typical Kapil fashion, all points lead back to the mind; and as easy as that sounds, you’ll get a real sense of what he really means when he describes what makes a ’perfect decision’.  Here’s a sampling of what we explore:

  • What true ‘arrival’ looks like?
  • Why life’s greatest work always starts with a depth of self-awareness that’s as dangerous as it is liberating?
  • Why near death experiences lead to breakthroughs?
  • Why being uncompromising is your best bet to solving business issues; especially relationships?
  • Understanding the lines that you’re not willing to cross?
  • Why being clever is shielding you from the Truth?
  • What indicates a perfect decision?
  • What it means to be a leader of one?
  • A lesson about identifying the right business partners from Billy Beane & Moneyball.
  • What mistrust can teach you about real trust?
