Better Human - Feb 28th
ONE simple question for you, Why we should remove self-conflict, Patience, Results
My Dear Fellow Human,
I have a favor to ask.
Would you be willing to share your answer to one simple question?
I will read and reply to EVERY SINGLE RESPONSE I get even if it takes me all week ;)
Here’s the question: What is your current greatest struggle with your mindset or thinking?
Simply hit that reply button and type away as little or as much as you like! (Plz be specific.)
This will help us both. You’ll get to share and perhaps get some clarity through the process while I will get insights that will help me think differently about what I’m writing and recording.
If you want to answer more than that single question, I created a short form with a few more questions here.
Thank you for helping us both out!
Now on to this week’s newsletter…
Something I Improved This Week
We are living out of Airbnbs for the time being as we find a new place in Austin.
The only place we could find is a 2-bedroom in the middle of student housing right near the University of Texas.
Just last night, a group of 8 or so loud humans checked-in to the unit a floor above us.
They then proceeded to move furniture around for 3 hours. I don’t even get how people can make so much noise, but whatever.
I didn’t call anyone to complain. Instead, I decided I wanted to go somewhere else, so we checked out a couple of days early and found a new place in a better, quieter area of town.
Situations like this remind me of how much I value my solitude and tranquility.
Something I Enjoyed This Week
I am finally set up in my new office setup and can record in complete SOLITUDE.
Here’s how it’s looking so far:
Something I've Been Thinking About
What to do next
I’ve decided that The Better Mind program will be a course access product for now with a weekly Q/A call and community back-end.
Later on, as I acquire more student feedback and user data, I’ll start the 8-week coaching program that follows the course curriculum.
For now, I’m going to keep building the core modules to be the best they can be. I have a long-term vision for this and am in no rush.
If you’d like to be a beta user and provide feedback and a testimonial in exchange for 80% off, reply to this email.
Why 80% instead of free? Because you need skin in the game to ensure you’ll get in and do the learning. Fighting inertia for humans is the hardest thing to do, which is why skin in the game is paramount to doing anything worthwhile.
A Big Idea
I used to feel guilty if I didn’t work.
I used to feel guilty when I missed a workout.
And while I still feel these pangs of self-conflict, they are less intense and pass faster than they used to.
I think a bit of self-conflict is good since it keeps you on your game and moving towards your goals.
The problem is how we create unnecessary suffering by obsessing over the past.
So when I have a cheat meal—like last night—I feel grateful for the flavor high, and I accept it as done. I then focus on my next meal and returning to my routine.
If I miss a work session, I take it as a chance to have space and take a break.
We talked about health, thinking, entrepreneurship, fitness, and more. This was a fun wide-ranging chat with Michelle Hurn.
