201: Barry Hearn revisited

Just START, a message from boxing promoter Barry Hearn that can’t be emphasized enough. This episode deserved an encore because we cannot overemphasize the importance of not taking your life for granted. Life is a gift, you must not abuse it. Hearn wanted to be a heavyweight boxing champion, but his path lead him to be a promoter instead. His own passion seem harsh at times, but that’s only testament to how strongly he believes in the power of the individual to create a meaningful life.


  1. At first take a scattergun approach in life; don’t set limits and then hone in on your passion.
  2. Start an hour earlier and end an hour later.
  3. Champions are impressive, but the people at the back of the field who refuse to give in may be even more impressive.
  4. Life is a gift, do not squander it!
