Hi all,

This week I especially want to encourage you to watch the Fear Setting exercise in the TED Talk below. This is a very powerful way to reach your goals not by writing down these goals but rather by writing down your biggest fears. Damn powerful!



TED of The Week — Tim Ferriss — Define Your Fears

The hard choices — what we most fear doing, asking, saying — are very often exactly what we need to do. How can we overcome self-paralysis and take action? Tim Ferriss encourages us to write down our fears in detail, in a simple but powerful exercise he calls “fear-setting.” Learn more about how this practice can help you thrive in high-stress environments and separate what you can control from what you cannot.

There’s a lot of darkness in the world, but certain tools can help.

The Infinite Now —

Did You Know…

June 21st was the day with most sunlight — the Summer Solstice — for all Earthlings north of the equator. Now through Dec 21 daytime gets shorter. Did you know there’s only 10% of the world’s human population living on the 30% of land below Earth’s equator?
Happy Winter Solstice to all of you down there!

Understand Bitcoin and Blockchain

I haven’t really understood the overall idea behind cryptocurrencies until I’ve listened to Tim Ferriss’ interview with the quiet master of cryptocurrency Nick Szabo. The breadth and depth of his interests and knowledge are truly astounding.

I especially love the fly analogy: “Each block is like another thin layer of amber and the chain of blocks represents the depth of that Amber.”

Quote I Love

If you don’t think brand advertising affects you, go to a foreign country and see how much work you put into buying toothpaste
Trevor McKendrick

Isn’t this quote eye opening? I’ve actually thought marketing doesn’t affect me, and “ads don’t work”. Well, they do.

Exercise for you this week: Define your fears to reach your goals!
