Phil Libin (@plibin) is the co-founder and executive chairman of Evernote. Evernote has roughly 150 million users, and I personally use it at least 10 times a day. It is my external brain for capturing all the information, documents, online articles, lists, etc. in my life. In this episode, Phil and I cover a ton. Here are just a few examples: – Philosophical and performance systems: Stoicism, electrical brain stimulation, and more – Phil’s favorite lessons learned from Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn), and Hiroshi Mikitani (Rakuten) – Creating tech “for yourself” and Evernote’s genesis story, leading to approximately 150 million users – The best toast in Singapore, the best hamburger in Tokyo, and why “Goat Simulator” is amazing. – Long-term (10,000-year) thinking and real versus imagined threats More importantly, he digs into his “a-ha” moments, and what you need to do bring your next big idea to life.
