Get a handle on your emotions

Take a deep dive into your emotions. What are you feeling? Is it controlling your actions? The mass panic is subsiding a little bit, the market is doing a little happy dance. I don’t think this will last. I think our hospitals will be overrun and the market will further tank.

Still, waltz through it.

I challenge you to do well during these times that are difficult for most. Make this YOUR time.

If you want help, I created a home workout program that’s sure to kick anyone’s ass. All you need is 1 or 2 sets of dumbbells, and some resistance bands. Let me know and I’ll send you the link to download our app and get on board.

Who’s The Captain?

I hate analogies, but here we go.

  1. Things are stormy, but there’s always a captain of the ship. As long as he’s in the boat, then things could be worse.
  2. Who the captain is matters. Is he fearful? Brave? Competent? Does he know himself well? (Capt Ahab might have avoided calamity if he knew himself to be obsessive)
  3. The captain has access to all information that all other captains have: real-time information on what’s going on around him, and two hands on the helm.

Stay calm. The sun is always beyond the storm, just waiting.

Take the waves as they come, and keep investing in the sun when it doesn’t show its face.

What’s behind your eyes?

How do you know that you are behind your eyes? We see through them, and believe our brains house our consciousness, but we have no idea.

Does our consciousness envelope the entire universe, interconnected with the consciousness of others? Or is it one consciousness, many faces?

I’m sorry, but I only have questions today.

Mediocre Shit

The bane of doing one thing well is giving in to the temptation of doing many things mediocre. But why do we give in? I have some ideas:

  • Lack of solidified vision.
  • Lack of placing importance on the one thing, which can act as a launch pad for future endeavors and focuses.

That’s it.

Consider this a callout for you to hone in on the one thing and knock off all that other mediocre shit.

Forecast, duality, kill the king, embrace the philosopher.

Unfortunately, or fortunately, I cannot write freely at my IRL business without a negative impact. It seems people do not want to think, they want to do what feels good in the moment, they want to be lied to, to attach themselves to a fad for a time.

This breaks my heart, as I see the value in detaching from myself to see how I’m lying to myself, and how I’m being lied to. This ties in with fitness and training very well: science and reality go together, it’s us that needs to align with reality. Wasn’t in Feynman that said we must not fool ourselves, and we are the easiest ones to fool?

Either way, I will not abandon but search further. There is a connection somewhere that explains what’s going on. I come back to Taleb’s thoughts on “King first, philosopher second.” Mike will be the king, ThinkySpaceMan will be the philosopher. I cannot keep myself from it.

We will see how this duality plays out.

Forecast: It goes well.
