In this episode of The Long Game we interview David Kadavy, author, podcaster and self-publishing coach. 

He’s the author of three books: The Heart to Start, Design for Hackers, and most recently, Mind Management Not Time Management.

His podcast, Love Your Work, features both interviews with experts like Seth Godin, James Altucher, and Dan Ariely, as well as solo monologues on topics like the barbell strategy.

If we had to sum up David, it would be a “creator,” or a “clear thinker.” Writing seems to be his preferred medium, but he seems to be mostly interested in ideas and changing hearts and minds, and he’s clearly effective at doing that through multiple mediums. 

Alex met David when he stumbled upon an article Alex wrote about the Barbell Strategy with regards to content marketing. They realized they had tons of similar influences and interests. 

This conversation dives into his background growing up in Nebraska, moving to Silicon Valley, and eventually to Medellin, Colombia. 

We also cover productivity advice for creatives, finding your “creative sweet spot,” anti-optimization, convergent versus divergent thinking and much more. 

You can find  “Mind Management, Not Time Management” on Amazon.

The Long Game is hosted by Alex Birkett and David Ly Khim who co-founded Omniscient Digital to help companies ranging from early-state to scale-ups with growth strategy, SEO, and content marketing. Allie Decker, Head of Content, joins the conversation as well.
