Last Thursday, I caved in to join a family getaway to a nice hilltop place in Penang with NO Internet.
Most folks cry and scream about zero Wifi, but I remembered how old-school copywriters used to seclude themselves and continue writing killer copy, even after their heydays were supposedly over.

So I packed some emails and books to study and read...and somehow finished up LOTS of overdue reading.

And yes, watching greenery, flowers, monkeys on Penang Hill is really soothing to your eyes.

Somehow, the getaway makes me wonder if I should have a new Fastlane dream: to buy me one of those getaway places in nature. It's not impossible in Malaysia-in some secluded areas, you can even get the entire land FOR FREE, as long you pay for renovation, plumbing, electricity out of your pocket (which is the nightmare)

So I guess I found experienced a GREAT way to raise productivity: Go hobo in a place with as little tech or modern distractions as possible.

Too bad I still need Internet to do market research for copy though...otherwise I'd be happy to ditch it.

Oddly, in that nature getaway, I slept as late as 12AM+, but could wake up as early as 5.30-6AM, to catch sunrise and daylight transition! Maybe it's the natural air at work?

Tej Dosa (found some of his email newsletters floating in the Internet...pretty good on general business lessons. He also has a 6-Figures Promotions product, but I haven't tried it yet)

TMF- Read 6-8 chapters (how long have I NOT read it)

A Mind for Numbers-Read 5 chapters (Realised I BROKE many of its suggested math-learning rules for my current Finance degree...)

Thanks for asking. Similar to this week, I was trying to change how I do some things and was procastinating about it, looking for loopholes in my rules. Hope I've dealt with that now.

Ah nice. When it comes to learning how to learn, I can also recommend Scott Young.

Thanks for the recommend! I see he has written the book Ultralearning.
Odd that it's the first time I heard of it.
I'll check it out!

Loopholes in the rules?

Just things like: "Since I'm working on new ways to do things for an extended period of time, the old ways don't apply anymore and I can do what I want".

Just things like: "Since I'm working on new ways to do things for an extended period of time, the old ways don't apply anymore and I can do what I want".
Oh, I see.
I think that no matter what old or new ways we want to do or toss away, we need to understand just because something is 'old'...it doesn't mean its bad.

Example?

Reading (good) copywriting books.
Some folks might say real-life clients give you better experience.
Others say the classics are old-fashioned.

So, burn the copywriting books once you get the first few copywriting clients?

For me though, I've found that doing copywriting jobs AND reading copywriting books (like Halbert Method III and Breakthrough Advertising) enables me to learn something new each time, even from a regularly-read book.

There's some mysterious beauty in working hard at a craft, and then going back to the learning materials and finding new lessons to interpret from.

Another example?
Mutual funds.

They have been touted as Slowlane investments, but I've started putting in some extra dollars in them, and reaped some good NAV appreciations when the stock market picked up again after the first COVID-19 outbreaks.

They don't earn millions, but they put me in the green, at least.

In fact, in UNSCRIPTED, MJ even recommends mutual funds as good picks for the Paycheck Pot...as long as you can filter out those with costly management fees, and your investment principal isn't capped by a 9-5 job income.

On investments though, I'm hearing that the regular indices like Dow Jones may be seriously f*cking up their diversification features by taking on one too many tech companies to carry the game...me thinks I'd have to 'design my own indices' by picking my own stocks.

Good point. Finding the right strategy to do things can be hard, because most of the time there can be several reasons why you don't get results. Things are seldomly monocausal. So just because you're failing, doesn't mean all you're doing is garbage. There might be just one single thing that you're doing wrong that you haven't even thought about.
This of course, is what makes many things in life hard in the first place.

Wake up 8-9.30 AM DAILY

NOT MET for Mon, Tues and Thurs (work up as late as 11AM!)

I realised I found those days hard to wake up to because I had to wake up to some HATED university projects. While thank goodness those projects are done, I'm currently planning HOW MUCH prior content I'll have to create for subsequent projects (even for group assignments!)

Sleep around 11 PM-12.30 AM DAILY
NOT MET for Mon (slept at 12.40am)

For some reasons, I feel I hate going to bed these days, even though I can keep reasonable hours.
I know sleeping is needed for rest and recuperation, but still, there's an inner disgust for sleeping as a bloody boring exercise.
So, these days I just go to bed to simply 'get over it'.

I haven't found any solution to this feeling from my usual reads like Atomic Habits, so I'm left in the limbo on this...

-For Bible study habits:
I found a great YouTube channel called 'Wretched' by Todd Friel, which actually discusses lots of Christian pain-points in bite sizes (and Ben Settle-ish attitude) and following closely with the Holy Writ. Have been watching the regular episodes a lot more often.

His marketing for his side products is also one of a kind...worth a study.
No 'give me money for salvation' kind of thing, but something close to a Dollar Shave Club kind of thing.


-Remind me again to NEVER discuss or put my mind on politics-even for my country.
We had a state election, and I somehow dropped my guard to listen and talk in some WhatsApp groups when the election-mood was heavy.

That cost me lots of time and energy, and sent me into a day-long depression and angry spiel.

That's not to say one shouldn't vote...but people are going to talk a lot of rubbish that doesn't make sense, and just not worth listening to at the cost of your sanity and intelligence.
