This podcast is a double whammy. First, it’s by my buddy Tripp Lanier who has a popular podcast called the New Man: Beyond the Macho Jerk and New Age Wimp. He’s a fantastic life coach, surfer, author, podcast host, friend, husband, Dad. Second, his guest is my buddy and training partner Dave Baker, head of Wrightsville Beach Ocean Rescue and heart attack survivor.

Here’s the info on the interview:

Heart Attack Recovery

Do you feel alive or do you spend most of your time just existing?
Could you be wasting time and energy on the stuff that just doesn’t matter?
And would you live your life differently after facing your own death?
I don’t want to spoil anything about the story you’re about to hear, but let’s just say Dave Baker has a pretty amazing tale to tell. He has spent his life being highly active both as a lifeguard with the Wrightsville Beach Ocean Rescue program and as a competitive athlete. Practically speaking, 11 years ago he should have died. But he didn’t, and today we’re going to talk about what happened and how this event has shaped the way he chooses to live.
In this interview:
  • A job doing the 5 minutes nobody else wants to do
  • What happened in May 2007 when Dave was 49 years old
  • “I don’t wanna be a mall walker.”
  • Refusing to put limitations on himself
  • Facing death — to the body and to the ego
Plus:
  • What happened exactly one year and one day after the incident
  • Somebody’s grind is someone else’s comfort zone
  • Physical discomfort and emotional discomfort
  • The stress of trying to meet the expectations of others
  • Don’t sweat the small stuff
