Gabby Reece is known for her successful professional volleyball career but the 6’ 3” powerhouse wears many hats as a model, fitness leader, TV host and mom as well. We talk through several key times when Gabby has applied her unique Why Not Now? decision-making process, which is quite formulaic. How she navigates through the decision to give up a for sure thing for an unknown has elevated her success on many occasions. She also talks about making co-decisions with her pro surfer husband, Laird Hamilton.

Notes:

  • Gabby shares a variety of Why Not Now? moments ranging from her college years up to last year.
  • When making key decisions, Gabby breaks the situation down to several buckets like time, money and impact on relationships.
  • How Gabby has used her voice via social media and the traditional media follows suit by reporting on her content.
  • The various sides of humility, from no better than to no less than.
  • How Gabby changes her vernacular in order to keep her mind healthy.
  • Gabby describes how there’s a subconscious and conscious side of her “Why”. Why she does what she does.
  • A Why Not Now? that Gabby is currently pursuing.
  • All-time favorite book.
  • What keeps her up at night?
  • What advice Gabby would share with her younger self.

Adam Grant is an organizational psychologist, New York Times best-selling author and professor. He pretty much makes thought candy for a living if you ask me. He's not only the youngest tenured professor at Wharton School but also the highest rated. He's recognized as one of the world's 25 most influential management thinkers with two TED Talks and two books (with another on the way). Adam has become one of my favorite people to learn from online.
 
Show Notes:
  • Adam shares how his What Now? moment turned into a Why Not Now? moment
  • The idea of success and generosity coexisting vs. waiting to "give back" until you've reached a certain level of wealth or success.
  • The process Adam went through to determine if his future included springboard diving.
  • Adam explains the difference between Givers, Takers and Matchers and how they impact our online environment.
  • Unlocking Vuja de moments which can lead to big ideas (like Uber)
  • Adam's new Why Not Now? (This is one of my favorites so far.)

Mark Cuban, Troy Aikman & Scott Harrison. A few of my favorite Why Not Now? snippets from 2016 are inside this episode. Billionaire Shark Tank personality and NBA team owner, Mark Cuban, shares his pivotal story about getting fired, exclusive negotiating tips and how he manages to take zero phone calls a day while reading three hours a day. 3x Super Bowl Champ, Troy Aikman, tells us about the best thing he has ever done for himself and what happened when his daughter told him she wasn't going to be a pro athlete. And Scott Harrison, charity: water founder, talks about how he did a 180 from being someone he didn't like as a club promoter to raising $200 million for clear water efforts.
