Tribe of Mentors

Just finished Tribe of Mentors by Tim Ferriss which is really just a follow up to Tools of Titans if you ask me. That said, there’s still some wisdom here that is worth considering. Find some of my highlights and points to ponder below.

  • addiction is when we’ve “lost the freedom to abstain.” Let us reclaim that freedom.
  • While everyone else is running around with a list of responsibilities a mile long—things they’re not actually responsible for—you’ve got just that one-item list. You’ve got just one thing to manage: your choices, your will, your mind. So mind it.
  • Most teenagers choose to fool around rather than exert themselves. Halfhearted, lazy effort gives them a ready-made excuse: “It doesn’t matter. I wasn’t even trying.”
  • One of the most powerful things you can do as a human being in our hyperconnected, 24/7 media world is say: “I don’t know.” Or, more provocatively: “I don’t care.”
  • There is almost no situation in which hatred helps. Yet almost every situation is made better by love—or empathy, understanding, appreciation
  • We’d rather be pissed off, bitter, raging inside than risk an awkward conversation that might actually help this person and make the world a better place. We don’t just want people to be better, we expect it to magically happen
  • amor fati (a love of fate). It’s not just accepting, it’s loving everything that happens.
  • Let’s not confuse acceptance with passivity.
  • Perhaps today will be the day when we experience happiness or wisdom. Don’t try to grab that moment and hold on to it with all your might. It’s not under your control how long it lasts. Enjoy it, recognize it, remember it. Having it for a moment is the same as having it forever.
  • there is one thing and only one thing that causes unhappiness. The name of that thing is Attachment.
  • Don’t let another day tick away in ignorance of the reality that you’re a dying person. We all are. Can today be the day we stop pretending otherwise?
  • while we might be good at protecting our physical property, we are far too lax at enforcing our mental boundaries. Property can be regained; there is quite a bit of it out there—some of it still untouched by man. But time? Time is our most irreplaceable asset—we cannot buy more of it. We can only strive to waste as little as possible.

Email Bookmarklets

Ever want an easy way to email a webpage to yourself? Maybe it’s to send it to your task list, or just to share with a co-worker? Of course there are extensions for most browsers to do this, but if you would prefer a bookmarklet that doesn’t require any installation, here’s how to do it. This is the basic link structure…

javascript:document.location='mailto:?subject='+document.title+'&body='+escape(document.location);

Or, for simplicity sake, just drag and drop this link into your bookmarks bar… Email

Of course you can go wild and start customizing the URL to your hearts content. Set a value after the “mailto:”, or maybe even a CC. For example…

javascript:document.location='mailto:me@here.com?subject='+document.title+'&cc=you@there.com&body='+escape(document.location);

Why Motivating Others Starts With Using The Right Language

I’ve loved this since I read it. “I intend to”, “I just did”, and “I have been doing” are wonderful places to be, but take some time to get to. Still, like the article points out the leap from asking permission to stating your intent is probably the most crucial and beneficial.

Free yourself from your filter bubbles

It probably wouldn’t hurt if we all freed ourselves from our own little filter bubble. That said, telling others their in a bubble or ridiculing them is probably not the best way to get a health dialog going. FWIW: I’m always open to a good conversation and sharing of ideas.

You, Too, Can Live Like Royalty and Delete All Your Social Media Accounts

Something to think about…

For centuries, inbred weirdos in castles ruled every aspect of our lives. These days, they mostly just suck up public assistance that might be better spent on, I don’t know, helping sick kids or something.
