This Week In Charm – Angela Duckworth | Jason McCarthy | Kindness

Thanks for checking in to find out what we’ve been up to this week at The Art of Charm — where we started out with nothing, and still have most of it.

Minisode Monday #7 | Kindness and Giving

If You’re so Smart, Why Aren’t You Happy? author and recent guest Raj Raghunathan joins us to talk about the benefits of kindness and giving.

This week, we challenge you to find the balance between being a selfless giver and an otherish giver — as Adam Grant would say. Take the Art of Charm Challenge for weekly help in striking the right balance in this and the other areas of your life.

Jason McCarthy | Charming the Snake (Episode 525)

Jason McCarthy of GORUCK teaches lessons focused on problem solving and rapport building related to “Charming the Snake,” a way of life for Green Berets that works in war, business, and love.

Jason tells us how we can learn to charm the snake in any situation here.

Angela Duckworth | Grow Your Grit (Episode 526)

Angela Duckworth is a professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, founder of the non-profit Character Lab, and author of Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance.

Here, Angela tells us how we can grow this grit and understand why talent counts — but effort counts twice.

Fan Mail Friday #69 | Are Schools for Fools?

In Fan Mail Friday this week, we answer your questions about dropping out vs. staying in school, the balance between self-improvement and family drama, why Jordan isn’t on Snapchat, how to deal with FOMO when recovering from a long illness, and how learning social dynamics goes way beyond just knowing how to manipulate people.

Hear the answers and find out how you can ask your own questions here.

Jordan Harbinger - author of 930 posts on The Art of Charm

Jordan Harbinger has spent several years abroad in Europe and the developing world, including South America, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East, and speaks several languages. He has also worked for various governments and NGOs overseas, traveled through war zones, and been kidnapped -- twice. He’ll tell you the only reason he’s still alive and kicking is because of his ability to talk his way into (and out of) just about any type of situation. Here at The Art of Charm, Jordan shares that experience, and the system borne as a result, with students and clients.
