Live Inspired Podcast: S9 | Ep. 94 Mick Ebeling, Not Impossible Labs

People with ALS often lose their ability to move and speak. The Eyewriter technology allows them to communicate through writing with their eyes. Mick Ebeling of Not Impossible Labs created the Eyewriter. Their mission is to create technology that helps people by “recognizing an absurdity [that limits people] and committing to figure it out.”

Mick Ebeling’s story, work and heart transformed the way I view life, business, relationships, challenges and possibility. Today, Mick shares how he turns the “impossible” into “possible” in his lab and how you can in your life:

MICK EBELING SHOW NOTES

  • Figure it out mode: Start talking to people and asking questions. The more questions you ask, the smarter you get and the more you realize who knows what they’re doing.
  • “Maybe you’ve viewed it as being bad for too long and it’s time to change your perspective.” – Mick Ebeling
  • “Instead of thinking of technology for the sake of making things pretty and entertaining, how about for the sake of humanity.” – Mick Ebeling
  • Hear Not Impossible Podcast episode 7 about the device celebrated by Pharell + Lady Gaga that helps deaf people experience music.

MICK EBELING’S LIVE INSPIRED 7

1. What is the best book you've ever read? The Fountainhead, Atlas Shrugged, The Alchemist and Man’s Search for Meaning. They’re all stories of owning your life and making change.

2. What is a characteristic or trait that you possessed as a child that you wish you still exhibited today? To play and turn anything into a game. As a kid I could have a pile of sticks and turn it into a game. I wish I had more of a sense of play, fascination and wonder.

3. Your house is on fire, all living things and people are out. You have the opportunity to run in and grab one item. What would it be? Photo album. memories ground you in naivety that sense of wonder of the person you are and the person you were and when you meld those together that gives you the fodder for growth in the future.

4. You are sitting on a bench overlooking a gorgeous beach. You have the opportunity to have a long conversation with anyone living or dead. Who would it be? bench. without a doubt my dad. he passed 11 years ago before I started not impossible. what do you think he’d say? “Good job. Keep it up.”

5. What is the best advice you’ve ever received? I was graduating from college in Santa Baraba, CA. my uncle said, responsibility is over rated. you’re going to get a mortgage payment and school payments and car payments. its going to come. avoid it as long as you can. I went and got a job. and I think, man that was good advice I should have heeded.

6. What advice would you give your 20-year-old self? Don’t take yourself so serious. Every time you think your world is collapsing problems are the problems of the world. Every mistake I’ve made has basically just been a contribution to my life MBA. If I was able to just reflect on that in the moment, I’d be able to get even more out of it later on.

7. It's been said that all great people can have their lives summed up in one sentence. How do you want yours to read? He absolutely did not believe in the impossible.
