This Week in Charm – Jocko Willink | Tim Urban | Assumption

Thanks for checking in to find out what we’ve been up to this week at The Art of Charm — where the early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

Minisode Monday #5 | Testing Our Assumptions

This week, whenever you catch yourself making assumptions about something or someone, put it to the test: is the guy at the deli with all the tattoos really a scary biker type? Is the movie theater ticket clerk really just an aloof teenager?

Did someone snub you on purpose, or are they maybe distracted with their own issues? Some of the programming that triggers these assumptions may need rewiring.

Here’s a good place to start.

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.
