"Who can't become more than they are today?"
David Katz grew up on a small island off Vancouver, British Columbia, where he became acutely aware of just what was washing up on the beach.
A lifelong entrepreneur – beginning as a 12-year-old landscaper for hire – Katz always saw opportunities where others saw problems. He joined his entrepreneurial and spiritual callings to create The Plastic Bank, whose ambitious goal is to make plastic waste a currency that transcends poverty while stopping the flow of plastic into our oceans.
How did such a paradigm-shifting idea take hold? As Katz put it, "We were living in the future of a possibility that didn’t exist – we had to invite people into that possibility."
In true entrepreneurial fashion, Katz encountered one obstacle after another. So just what made him think he could tackle a challenge as big as saving the planet? Katz believes we are all a culmination of all the decisions we’ve ever made and experiences we’ve ever had. How his successes and failures brought him to where he is today is a fascinating and inspiring story from a true visionary.
As Katz puts it, “Do those things you want to do and your success is almost assured.”
In typical "Habits 2 Goals" style, the interview covers everything from dealing with difficult days to defining success. We explore what habits are essential to the guest's success, advice the guest would give his/her 20-something self, favorite books, quotes and more.
