Social media is a powerful tool. If it weren’t for the good social media has done, you likely wouldn’t be tuned into this podcast right now. That said, it seems to me that the use of social media is making us dumber or, at least, encouraging us to behave that way.
My guest today, Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, joins me to talk about exactly why that is and the type of thinking he refers to as “Loserthink.” It’s also the title of his new book subtitled, How Untrained Brains are Ruining America. Today, we talk about the fact that being right and being wrong feel the same, how to determine what battles to fight online, how shaming and mockery can be used positively, and ultimately how you can avoid thinking like a loser.

Gents, I am stoked to be able to introduce you to my guest today, Scott Adams. Before I do, I want to make sure I thank my friend, Jordan Harbinger, for introducing us.
Although Scott really started to gain attention and traction with Dilbert, his political commentary is, in my mind, just as, if not more, important. If you’re interested, you can check out what he has to say on Twitter (@scottadamssays). He’s never been afraid to ruffle a few feathers and I think that is why he has gained such a following – his ability to say what needs to be said and his ability to say it in a way that connects with so many of us.

Systems and Processes
Gentlemen, we’re all aware of how important systems and processes are on our path to success but how many men have not created those systems in every facet of their lives. These are the same men who often wonder why that cannot seem to get ahead.
This month, inside the Iron Council, we’ll be exploring and deep-diving into the systems and processes I use and what the 500+ members are using to achieve maximum results. We’ll help you unpackage your systems, explore what’s working, remove what isn’t, and rebuild a strategy that will ensure your success.
If you’d like to know more and build your blueprint for success, band with us inside the Iron Council. You’ll get the tools, challenges, assignments, camaraderie, and brotherhood needed to thrive.
