This content is from a Tim Ferriss Radio Hour episode dedicated to individuals who achieved outstanding success. This corresponds to the Tim Ferriss Show #325. I highly recommend this podcast which has been an invaluable source of information and inspiration over the years.
As for Derek Sivers, @Sivers on Twitter, he is the founder of CDBaby, and accomplished Ted Speaker and an inspiring author.
Here is what Derek answers to the question: What habits or skills are more important to live a successful life?

3 – People skills: how to see things from the other’s person point of view and how to communicate from their point of view
