    Life altering insight: Pursuing a clear vision vs. improving iteratively (and how lack of trust in myself led to the latter)

    MINDSET 
    I've always seen life through an evolutionary lens: The best and safest way to build something is to start with what you have now, identify the current biggest problem or bottleneck, improve that - in a way that is "reversible" should it not work out. Doing this over and over will lead you to a...

    Uncertainty is not danger

    MINDSET 
    This is a distinction I've noticed a lot of Scripted people seem to miss; uncertainty is not the same thing as danger. Often when Scripted people talk about 'risk' or 'danger' or implore you to 'play it safe' they're not really talking about danger, they're talking about uncertainty. Normally I...

    Overcoming Fear and Lethargy

    MINDSET 
    How do you personally deal with or overcome feelings of fear and/or lethargy? As of late, I have been falling short of my desired potential and haven't been acting/grinding as my higher self would prefer. Through self reflection and introspecting I believe at the root it is fear and lethargy...

    OFF-TOPIC 
    Those moments seem to have a huge impact on life, would be great if everyone could learn something from other's experience too. All mine have something to do with driving as I've used to drive like a reckless idiot when I was younger. This made me value my life more We were going on 5 car...

    A Room Full of Opportunity (Follow up on the darn leads!)

    NOTABLE! MINDSET 
    I have 2 stories to share. I think it's easy to get involved in the fastlane here, and start to lose sight of how most people in the world actually are, and hopefully you can realize that it isn't actually that hard to set yourself apart from most. It really just takes some legit effort and...

    Did you ever get cold feet? Oh boy, do I feel that cursor hovering above the <- on the top-left of your browser tab, waiting impatiently for that moment that you just click on that. But wait. I'm not going to sell you some warm fleecy socks now to get rid of your cold feet during that...

    Do you get discomfort?

    MINDSET 
    How often do we find ourselves in situations where we are bothered by people in our environment? Someone asking direct questions, sprawled against you in a plane, acting incoherent or loud, pushing hard in a negotiation, making judgmental comments, or maybe just staring down their noses at...

    There are days when putting work in is the last thing I want to do. I assume we've all been there. I think this is especially prevalent during the desert of desertion phase.

    What's the Price Tag of Fear?

    MINDSET 
    I am inspired to write this post by a talk I just had with @Andy Black. Let's go back to the future a bit.
