The James Altucher Show
James Altucher

James Altucher interviews the world’s leading peak performers in every area of life. But instead of giving you the typical success story, James digs deeper to find the “Choose Yourself” story—these are the moments we relate to… when someone rises up from personal struggle to reinvent themselves. The James Altucher Show brings you into the lives of peak-performers: billionaires, best-selling authors, rappers, astronauts, athletes, comedians, actors, and the world champions in every field, all who forged their own paths, found financial freedom and harnessed the power to create more meaningful and fulfilling lives.

For the past year, I have been addicted to reading news even though I've promised myself years ago not to look at the news. However, the news nowadays doesn't portray the entire truth or sometimes flat out wrong, I felt like I have to translate them to the audience what was the real news. So because of that, I was reading the news a lot more, on social media a lot more, and even argue with the "keyboard warrior"! So much that I was burnt out, and completely stop all my social media activities, and that accidentally led to me not looking and not responding to my email as much! Fortunate enough, Cal Newport, a computer science professor at Georgetown University, also a New York Times bestselling author of seven books, came out with the new book, A World Without Email: Reimagining Work in an Age of Communication Overload. We talked about the data on how email affects day-to-day life, and what are the effective ways of using email without getting burnt out!
