What I’m excited about:

 
  • Beats Studio Buds – Up until now, I didn’t want to let go of my Bose QC35II and Sony WH – 1000XM2 wireless headsets. And although they both are distinctly great headsets, I’ve been wanting something a little more… freeing. I didn’t want to join the AirPods bandwagon which is why I didn’t purchase them since they’ve been launched. BUT… I then saw the buds for an interesting price and decided, why not? I like them. They’re tiny, compact, and easy to lose, and they seem like a great microphone and headset for doing podcasts: awesome!

  • Hanging upside down on my bouncy-ball. I’ve recently purchased 2 gym balls, one 75cm, and one 55cm. The 55 is perfect for sitting on during the day, the 75 on the other-hand is perfect for back exercises and cervicales. So, yesterday, I decided to just lie on it and the activity turned into me half lying on the ball while doing some hand-stand shape. Which, btw, is awesome for the spine!

Quotes I’ve liked:

 
  • “M.I.C.E” → This acronym (Money, Ideology, Compromise, Ego) represents the 4 basic pillars that make a great SPY.

  • “Everyone is looking for the secret shortcut and equally unsurprising is the following fact: There are no shortcuts.” – Grant Cardone

  • “If you start with nothing, the workaround can lead you to originality”. – Steve Martin

  • “A person is obviously going to excel and do best in those areas in which he or she invests the most attention and takes the most action.” Grant Cardone

     

This week’s curiosities, interests, and thoughts:

 

Thoughts:

  • The hard now or hard later paradyme consists of confronting our mental limitations now or changing our mindsets now, and the effects that has on our life. Essentially, we can change the contents of our mindset now, or we can push it off until later. And the shift we get to enjoy life is the fruit of this activity. Want to push it off until later on in life? Then you’ll stay the same and keep essentially the same perception until then.

  • If you want something to last, you must take care of it. If you want your family to last, you must take care of them. And you only take care of people if you’re able to give. We can’t provide if all we do is take. And we take when we’re empty. We can only give when we are “full” and the only way to feel full is to compound our sexual urges and have more energy than we “spend”. Energetic transmutation is the best way to take care of what is ours.

  • Starbucks Hot Chocolate and Beats studio buds. Buying things because we want them is not the solution. Most likely, we have the habit of wanting to buy spontaneously and whenever something we like pops up we feel the urge to “get it now” in case it vanishes forever. But more so, many of us confuse want and need, so when something we want/need appears in its shiny alluring package, we grab it – like the good consumers we’ve been bread to be- and stuff it in our shopping basket and take it home…  This brought me to the idea of making a Desire list to write down everything and anything I want and to narrow that list down to only a few components that I actually will want. Be that A year from now, 5 or 10. Or is what I am wanting a “Now” thing because I’m afraid of missing out or missing an opportunity? How could I possibly get by until now without that one product? Precisely… I Have survived well until now, so it’s not a question of life or death.

  • The perfect start to the day starts by doing things the way you visualize. Otherwise, it’s not “according to your plan”. And if it’s not according to your plan, and not furthering your agenda, it’s furthering someone else’s.

Questions:

  • What are you putting in your mind? Will it matter a year(5 or 10 years even) from now? → Will it matter a year from now? → If not, why do I bother giving it my attention? → This is a great attention selector for picking out specific places and spaces for me to spend my time and attention and effort wisely.

  • What will you become via the journey that you choose? Choose the journey that will make you what you want to become.

  • Who do you aspire to be with and what will it take to be with them? / What type of person do you need to become to be with the type of person you desire?

  • Who do you want to become and what does that vision look like?

  • What does a “desirable life” look like for me?

  • What does “enjoyment” look like for me? What does it mean/feel like/ take for me to ‘enjoy’?

You can also give me your feedback on Twitter @check_goldberg. What did you like most about this weeks findings? What would you like more or less of in this newsletter? Any other suggestions?
