The Fiction of Moderation: Thoughts on The Iron Cowboy, How To Discover Your Passion & Raising “Out of the Box” Kids

The Rich Roll Podcast

“If you take some time to quiet your life and commit some time to yourself you’ll find that thing. It doesn’t mean that you’re going to be a painter or you’re going to be a singer. Perhaps you'll become a person of service. It’s different for everybody.”

Julie Piatt

We're back with yet another installment of Ask Me Anything, a twist on my typical long-form interview format where Julie and I engage you — the listener — by addressing the topics and questions you want discussed.

As a person prone to extremes, I have been spending quite a bit of time lately pondering the importance of balance and moderation in living an optimally fulfilling life.

What is the role of balance when you are pursuing your best self? Is moderation in all things truly an aspirational path?

In short, I am starting to question the premise.

This week Julie and I discuss this personal conundrum at length. Our conversation also explores:

* my experience with Iron Cowboy as he completed his historic 50/50/50

* Julie's perspective on crewing for me at Ultraman

* stoicism & overcoming obstacles

* how to best serve the needs of “out of the box” children

* the exploration required to discover your passion

* how distractions negatively impact our life path; and

* how to meet the social challenges of living plant-based

Special thanks to Nanette, Doug & David for this week’s questions!

The show concludes with Beloved, written and performed by Julie, aka SriMati, accompanied by Mark Schultz and our sons Tyler & Trapper Piatt.

I sincerely hope you enjoy the conversation.

How do you define balance? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.
