33: Choose Your Own Emergency



This week, your homeboys are talking about anxiety.

Where does anxiety come from? What causes it and what can we do to alleviate it?

Reducing anxiety means reducing uncertainty. Uncertainty comes from a lack of information.

Salient points include:

  • Anxiety isn't a necessary evil
  • However, it tends to compound when left unchecked
  • Brett's current anxious situation
  • Andrew's way of alleviating Brett's anxiety without actually solving the problem
  • How differing attitudes toward money can create anxiety (or not)
  • Andrew's rather unorthodox take on spending and budgeting
  • The famous Dave Ramsey practice that Andrew thinks is crap
