285. Jason Feifer: Want to Succeed? Be Adaptable

This week we cover the one thing we’re ALL bad at: Change. Jason Feifer is obsessed with the moral panic we feel when faced with new technologies, trends, and social norms. 19th century musicians despised record players. Elevators would tear apart our social fabric. And Teddy Bears threatened our very children!

What he’s learned from these now-laughable examples is that the people who see opportunity in change have more long-term success than those who only see loss.

By day, Jason is the editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur Magazine. By night, his podcast and new book Build For Tomorrow is all about finding ways to strengthen our adaptability in a world where change is inevitable (and accelerating).
