TYLER TERVOOREN is the founder of Riskology, a blog where he writes for introverts about the science and strategies for becoming a great leader. Tyler loves finding new ideas for improving and testing them on himself, including running a marathon on every continent, running three businesses, and organizing three successful Guinness World Record attempts. Tyler figures that if the time is going to pass anyway, he might as well spend it doing fun things with interesting people.

In this episode we talk about:

  • Recreating his relationship with his dad.
  • How self confidence allows us to love more fully in our intimate relationships.
  • How Tyler gains self confidence by learning to do things himself before calling on an expert.

Quotes from this episode:

When you’re confident in yourself – in your life – and you can lead a happy life on your own, it allows you to really give all of yourself to someone else.

The meaning or purpose of being a dad is figuring out how to be a dad.
