IN THIS EPISODE… Joe and Pete talk about the concept that we are part of a generation that was told to keep our options open; when we were trying to find a job or in our personal lives when dating and trying to find a partner. Even at the most basic level, scrolling through Netflix unable to choose one movie or show. Pete also discusses stories of historical dedication and how it has progressed over the year, and not always in a positive direction. Specifically how all the new apps and trends are conditioning us to have even less dedication. Most importantly Joe and Pete talk about some great tactical ways you can start dedicating yourself to a goal today.
