Show Notes

We are super thrilled to have the incredible multi-hyphenate, Viv Groskop, on Hyper Curious. 

“I always think there's something in our culture that tells us we should be focused on one thing, and not to have a butterfly mind.”

Viv Groskop is a writer, critic, broadcaster and standup comedian. She's the author of How To Own The Room, which is also a top 10 iTunes podcast with incredible guests like Hillary Clinton, Nigella Lawson and Julie Andrews. Her latest book is Lift As You Climb

In this episode, we learn why everything in life is a series of wrong turns and how it’s our failures that lead us to our eventual path - success isn’t linear. If you’ve ever wanted to take an idea and run with it, to see where it takes you, let Viv be your guide. We never know what will work, says Viv, the only common theme is that there is no common theme, experimentation is everything. 

“[Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg] tried loads and loads of things that didn't work, they took loads of wrong turns. And when you get to the top of something, when you become very successful, those things become written out of your story.”

Viv also explains why we need to tell our own story, why we should stop putting other people on a pedestal, why we need to to leave the good girl behaviour behind, and why doing less is the best way to become your most authentic self. 

“You don't have to do more, you have to actually do less, be less. I don't mean be lesser than your greatness. Do less, you don't have to be all things to all people. Just dig really, really deep into who you are as a person, and let that shine.”

On today’s podcast:
