How to Live ‘Eyes Wide Open’

Sep 25, 2019

This week's guest has one of the most eclectic resume's in business, including the following:

  • He has been a child television star
  • A Supreme Court clerk for Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsberg
  • Co-Founder of an internet startup
  • A graduate of Harvard at age 19
  • The author of a TED talk that received over 1M views in it's first 3 days

Perhaps most striking, Isaac Lidsky is only 40, and he is blind. Born with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a rare degenerative disease of the retina, from age 12 to 25 he slowly lost his sight. 

Isaac is the author of the book "Eyes Wide Open," which chronicles his personal experience with losing his sight, but more importantly, in it, he shares with us the lessons he learned along the way that we can all use to live a better life.

In this interview, Isaac shares openly about his personal story. He tells us what it means to truly live 'eyes wide open.' He also speaks candidly about the opportunity that we all have to live the life we want to live. And, his message aligns so closely with a recent episode of the podcast centered around radical responsibility

We are so grateful to have had this chance to partner with Isaac Lidsky on this episode!
