Dichotomy Podcast with Mike Reid

May 14, 2019


Lockie Cooke has a long list of achievements at the young age of 28. He gave his first TEDx talk at the age of 17 and represented Australia as a sprint kayaker in his early 20’s. Lockie later founded the non-profit organisation, Indigenous Communities Education and Awareness Foundation (ICEA), and was nominated for WA Young Australian of the Year in 2015.

In this episode, we have a deep and honest conversation about avoiding entitlement, the future of work, and the concept of unconditional giving. We talk about learning from being vulnerable, stretching yourself, and why variety in life is so important. Lockie also explains why instead of striving for your vision, you should be living it. Enjoy!

Episode Highlights:

  • How to avoid entitlement
  • What happens when you start putting the focus of work beyond yourself and what you do
  • The concept of unconditional giving
  • Is work-life balance a fantasy or is it truly possible?
  • How to find your community
  • The importance of using vulnerability to discover things you didn’t know about yourself
