Rob Booker and his producer Jason Pyles discuss the concept of “self-sabotage” and whether it exists. This episode is a journey of honesty that ultimately leads back to trading.
This conversation begins with Jason talking about his inexplicable, recurring desire to keep getting involved in horror movie podcasting every few months (even though it never seems to be a welcome fit for him).
Rob muses over various phenomena that could be misconstrued and misidentified as self-sabotage. Rob asks if we subconsciously self-sabotage things that we don’t actually want to do (even though we think we want to do them on a conscious level).
A few of the questions from this episode: Is Rob a hedonist? Is Jason a masochist? Does it all come down to discipline? Does it all come down to perspective? Do we engage in destructive behavior in order to lash out because it’s easier than being honest about how we really feel? And are we being honest about what it is that we want most?
