morning babble / Wednesday 06-16-21
It’s amazing how loose my hat is the day after I shave my head. There’s not much up there, but it makes a difference with keeping the hat snug. Also, clipped my nails – both fingers and toes. Getting ready for my Jiu-Jitsu roll tomorrow afternoon.
Ryan Holiday – The Daily Stoic Podcast / He had a runner on (Dean Karnazes) and they were talking about what they listen to during a run. Holiday says that he listens to just one song over and over again on repeat. Similar process that he does with writing. It got me thinking about which song would I listen to on repeat. I think I have one from Box Car Racer.
On the Tim Ferriss Podcast was Greg McKeown who wrote Essentialism. FYI – he has a new book out now too – it’s Effortless. They were discussing what he had learned from BJ Fogg. “After I complain, I will say something I’m thankful for.” After X, I will Y. The reason to do this – You can have so many good things happening, but you focus on some thing that isn’t going right. This helps you remember all the good that’s happening!
