I went to the hotel. I wanted to be lied to.

I wanted to get lost.

I brought my kids.

We went to see David Kwong, a famous magician, puzzle creator and illusionist fools us for ours.

We got what we wanted.

I brought him on the podcast. Because David Kwong has all the elements of my ideal guest:

Someone who figured out how to combine two skills and become the best in the world at the intersection

Someone who uses deliberate practice to get better and better

He taught me how to be more deceptive, how to think ahead, how to measure risk. And more.

Here’s the list of what we talked about.
