Unthinkable

Stories of conventional thinking at work and the people who dare to question it. In a world overflowing with advice, it's easy to be average; just follow everyone else's ideas and answers. This is a show about think-for-yourselfers. Join host Jay Acunzo as he travels to the far reaches of the business world to dig up stories you've never heard revealing ideas you've never considered. It's Unthinkable.

Last we spoke, we wondered why we don't trust our intuition more. I mean, it's with us at all times, telling us things. But we often feel like it's a LEAP to listen to our intuition. This week, we wonder: How do we cross that chasm?

To help make sense of this, we revisit the story of Alec Brownstein, the Executive Creative Director at Dollar Shave Club, and his incredible side project, viewed by billions: The Google Job Experiment

Last week, we defined intuition once and for all. This week, we wonder: Why don't we routinely TRUST our intuition? We came up with a practical definition, but why can't we seem to make it practical in our daily lives? Why does it so often feel like a leap?

To help make sense of this, we revisit the story of Neil Pasricha, a bestselling author, TED speaker, and the creator of the blog 1000 Awesome Things.
