People of Purpose

Connecting people to their unique human experience through Purpose.

Feb 18, 2018

Bryan Falchuk overcame adversity, lost nearly 100 pounds, ran a marathon, dramatically changed his diet and created an approach to help others live a better life, every day. That way is Do a Day. Like so many people, Bryan has faced challenges in life, like obesity, depression, work stress, the responsibilities of parenthood, the potential of losing his wife to illness, and more. And he struggled, like anyone else. Through his struggle, he learned the secret to not just overcoming any individual challenge, but creating a life of achievement, happiness and harmony. In Do a Day, you will learn how to make each day contribute to your goals so you can live the life you want to live - a better life. Do a Day frees you of the burden and judgment of yesterday‘s choices, while relieving you of the pressure of what tomorrow may bring. By teaching you how to identify your true motivation and how to use that to focus on what you have to do today, Do a Day will help you change your life.
Listen as Bryan and I talk about:
  • How his wife’s illness jumpstarted an intentionality towards purpose
  • Why an employee of your life mindset keeps you from living a purposeful life
  • How he realized his kid wasn’t the source of his purpose, but an embodiment
  • Why self-love and introspection can propel you to purpose without a traumatic event
  • How feigned humility actually hinders your self-love
  • why putting things out for the sake of purpose is always a step you can trust
  • "The last domino” theory and why working backwards along an unbroken chain will push you into a life of purpose
  • How a run in San Francisco inspired him to write “Do a Day”
  • Why the only two emotions are love and hate 
  • The power of non-attachment in maintaining a commitment to purpose
  • How consistent reflection keeps you on track living purposefully
  • How to balance spontaneity and serendipity with continued focus on goals
  • How gratefulness actually brings more things to be grateful for
  • The power of Buddhism in feeling unified towards a common goal of happiness
  • Why we like the word “allow” as a way of thinking about failures or roadblocks to purpose
  • Why controlling your half of the relationship is so important for developing purposeful relationships
  • 2 Ted Talks, a new book, and Bryan’s longer-term goals
