The Learning Leader Show With Ryan Hawk

As Kobe Bryant once said, “There is power in understanding the journey of others to help create your own.” That’s why the Learning Leader Show exists—to get together and understand the journeys of successful leaders, so that we can better understand our own. This show is full of stories told by world-class leaders. Personal stories of successes, failures, and lessons learned along the way. Our guests come from diverse backgrounds—some are best-selling authors, others are genius entrepreneurs, and one even made a million dollars wearing t-shirts for a year. My role in this endeavor is to talk to the smartest, most creative, always-learning leaders in the world so that we can learn from them as we each create our own journeys.

  • Go To www.LearningLeader.com For more information on DHH and this episode
  • Common themes of leaders who sustain excellence:
    • "For me it's falling in love with the work itself..."
    • Being excited to do the actual work everyday... The actual day to day work
  • "I don't have a need to think "What's Next?" -- "I'm thrilled to do the thing I've fallen in love with."
  • How did he become DHH?
  • What percentage of your job do you love and what percent do you dislike?
    • DHH works to minimize the parts he doesn't like
    • Managing others is low on his list of what he loves.
  • "The thought that you can't be innovative if you aren't in the same room is bullshit." -- You can do that remotely, in fact better in most cases.
  • DHH shares why the open office concept is horrible for creative people who like to "get shit done."
  • Remote work gives peace, tranquility, quality
  • Commuting to work can be a wasteful, drain on your life
  • The future of work -- More remote work, more contractors, less full time employees
  • "The office is something you choose to have, you don't need to have it."
  • "The Day I Became A Millionaire"
    • What DHH learned that day... What changed? What didn't
    • "The things that brought happiness were the things I was already doing. I love writing, programming, reading."
    • Will a certain amount of money ever be enough? Ray Kroc said "No."
  • "The human condition does not end because you get rich."  You'll still have problems.
  • Best advice to give to people early in their careers?
    • "Be careful what you wish for.  Managing other people is not in my top 5 things I like to do."
    • "Prove you can execute.  That's the way to get to the executive level. Just simply make shit happen, you get shit done."
    • You have to weigh shipping vs quality
    • Take measured risks, and don't be afraid to make mistakes
