50: Reboot.io CEO Jerry Colonna - removing your emotions from life’s roller coaster

April 7, 2021

Jerry Colonna (CEO of Reboot.io) joined Scott Britton and Andrei Newman on the Built by Humans podcast. Here are some key takeaways from the conversation:

  • Becoming a better human is difficult because we are deathly afraid of confronting the parts of ourselves that we do not like.
  • One of the biggest fallouts of not normalizing struggle is that we presume we are the only ones going through difficulty
  • When you become the moviegoer and create a distance between you and your thoughts, life can be much more enjoyable.
  • False grit is the ability to take the punches life throws at you and deal with them. True grit is the capacity to adapt, let things go, and surrender.
  • The attempt to control the ups, downs and unexpected changes of life is a feeble exercise since we do not know whether their long-term impact will be positive or negative.
