No-Nut Level: God Mode Activated

This has been a fruitful season of my life. Full of growth: I’ve learned to be truly alone and emotionally independent. I’ve overcome fear, worry, self-doubt I’ve come to agree full-stop with John Mayer, that “Drinking is a fucking con.” I’ve finally quit my on-again, off-again relationship with organic American Spirits (‘But they’re organic!’). I’veContinue reading “No-Nut Level: God Mode Activated”

Life As a Failed Hypothesis: Try Again.

I’ve hit a wall today. I feel like throwing up. Fact is, I’m here, where I am in life, as a result of my choices.  In a word, I made the wrong hypothesis. It’s all very complex, you see; allow me to rewind so that I may tell the story in full. In 2010 I builtContinue reading “Life As a Failed Hypothesis: Try Again.”

Facing Life Honestly in The Winter of My Discontent

I don’t wish to make this long (As I would like to return to bed); however, some things must be said or, rather, in my case, written; for without writing I’m just thinking, and I need more than thoughts right now. I need patience. I need time. I need change. Thankfully – unlike the latterContinue reading “Facing Life Honestly in The Winter of My Discontent”

Examining Motivation and Reflecting on Why We Do The Things We Do

I once heard someone say that, “Most people don’t even know why they do the things they do.” This concept struck a chord with me, and I incorporated the idea into an entry I wrote early last year on motivation, titled: A More Fluid Look at Life and Going Beyond Maslow’s Hierarchy, saying:  The truthContinue reading “Examining Motivation and Reflecting on Why We Do The Things We Do”

Willow and Jaden Smith, Fuck Motivation, and a Healthy Self-Confidence

I’ve previously featured their father, Will, as one of my real life inspirations; so it’s no surprise to begin this entry tonight by writing about his two terrifically well-adjusted children, Willow and Jaden, whom I think are awesome. In a word, they are that rare thing among people – individuals – those fine persons capable of thinking and actingContinue reading “Willow and Jaden Smith, Fuck Motivation, and a Healthy Self-Confidence”

Hacking an Open Source Cognitive Model for Goal Prioritization and Attainment

Update: 3-16-19 I’ve published a new entry: Introduction to LEVELS, which compliments this quite well for anyone looking to level-up in life. Introduction and Preface On the heels of my previous entry my father emailed me a link to a piece from Wait But Why, titled, The Cook and The Chef: Musk’s Secret Sauce. Today IContinue reading “Hacking an Open Source Cognitive Model for Goal Prioritization and Attainment”

Watch Me

I do not know how I am going to die, but I know I will. If thirty years of edging towards the horizon of infinity has taught me anything, it’s that figuring out life takes time. Hell, some [people] never do. I think of those who are older and quip that they “still feel twentyContinue reading “Watch Me”

The Rules (Live By Your Own)

I have writen these to center myself by striking bedrock on the foundations of my life at thirty. It is absolutely insane that we are not all taught to define and live by our own rules. Have inner peace. This comes from listening to and following your heart. This is the essence of loving yourself.Continue reading “The Rules (Live By Your Own)”

Wake Up With Your Dreams

N.G.U Never Give Up It warrants a seriousness – you see You musn’t ever, ever give up on your dreams For if you do dear child, You will awake without them And a day without, Is spent in doubt But a day with, Is-a life well-lived So to the wise, These words I give: BeforeContinue reading “Wake Up With Your Dreams”

Under a Blue Moon

Cool on me the eye of heaven shines In an earthly world where the mortals dine I can’t question anything, Anymore or again I am to be my hero, My unequaled friend You know your truth, Think and speak your voice Act according to your heart and you’ll never have to make the choice, BetweenContinue reading “Under a Blue Moon”

Motivate Daily

Zig Ziglar once said that bathing doesn’t last, and neither does motivation, that’s why we recommend it daily. If you’re reading this, the universe has an important message for you – MOTIVATE DAILY. I’m not one of those positive thinking addicts – I know there’s more to it; it’s not just about thinking positive, but youContinue reading “Motivate Daily”

Journey to Self‑Mastery: From Self‑Control to Self‑Discipline

I posted a previous – albeit brief entry on the importance of self-control about a month ago, and today I want to talk about it again, but within a larger context. I want to tell you about my journey to self-mastery, but first let me give you some of the key quotes from the video on self-control, whichContinue reading “Journey to Self‑Mastery: From Self‑Control to Self‑Discipline”
