    The Dangers of Cigar Smoking... Concerned? Overblown?

    HEALTH 
    I won't defend cigars at all since I personally believe tobacco is the devil (especially with radium in the crops now). BUT, as pointed out by some, it may be a semi-effective way to promote hormesis, like with eating green salads, drinking coffee, or drinking red wine. It's been a long time...

    Serotonin: Depressing in the most offensively cerebral way. I'm glad I'm not 40, glad I'm working on living a life opposite of the protag. A Rebours: Still working on. TSZ: Listening via audiobook, I will probably have to read a physical/e-copy before I make good distinctions. The Inner Game...

    Reading books?

    Welcome man, Audiobooks are pretty unique, in that it's hard to re-read anything if you tune it out so you may be missing out on information. If you go for walks, or listen to audiobooks on commutes (especially commutes), they're great ways to absorb lighter non-fiction books. This is mostly...

    What is it you're trying to do over the next two months? Compound effect is good, extremely fluffy and honestly it's common sense, but reading it will pound it back into your head harder and hopefully soak into your internal machinery.

    I missed this thread. Reading is a waste of time unless you do something with it, as I found out. My reading has been pushed into my sun-tan breaks or right before I go to sleep. Since I'm doing WfH, haven't been listening to as many audiobooks, but I think I prefer it that way. I get to work...

    27 minutes or less: How to cold call prospects while dealing with a dayjob?

    SIDE HUSTLE WEB DESIGN 
    That right there is gold. Even in my own limited experience, most if not all higher positions stayed after work hours. This may yet be a powerful ingredient in the successful prospecting formula. Your point with the e-mail's is also really good, IIRC, fox too recommends to just send a short...

    Are business/self-help books a waste of time?

    HOT! 
    2 cents from a commute audiobook king: If you find time where you have menial tasks, or you're doing something that requires structured labor you can do mindlessly... why not listen to e-books? Driving, cooking, laundry, bathroom... the opportunities are endless. Just make sure you're devoting...

    SIDE HUSTLE WEB DESIGN 
    Playing timezones does seem like a great opportunity most wouldn't pay heed to. How do you think pushing for the capture would work out if you wouldn't be on site to do the sales meeting in person though?

    A thorough failure masked as being "Scientific" Don't let them make you think it's okay to cut out your BIGGEST source of essential nutrients. Game changers is a criminally misleading waste of film funded by a man with a clear conflict of interest (founder and CEO of a 140 million dollar...

    I posted an Upwork proposal!

    SIDE HUSTLE 
    So you're aiming to test whether or not you still have the upwork mojo, and whether or not you can take and simplify this for others? Any hot tips for the neophytes?

    When Did You Decide To Commit To The Fastlane?

    MINDSET 
    Within my 3rd week of my first post-college job, I knew I was fed a steaming, malodorous pile of BS by the education-workforce complex. While I didn't exactly know what fastlane was, I knew that there were Tim Ferris-types out there and that there were people who worked for themselves. So there...
