Tim Ferris is a world renowned podcaster and the author of five #1 New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestsellers, including The 4-Hour Workweek and his latest, Tribe of Mentors: Short Life Advice From The Best In The World. Some media outlets have called Tim “the Oprah of audio” due to the influence of The Tim Ferriss Show podcast, which has exceeded 300 million downloads and has been selected for “Best of iTunes” three years running.

In this conversation moderated by Jordan Thibodeau, Tim discusses “How to Cage The Monkey Mind” an approach to decision making based on stoicism that can help us to answer questions like How can we stay humble? and How do we manage the many, many requests that we receive from the world in day to day life?
