I like my resistance because it tells me exactly what I should do. Anything that the resistance warns me against is what I do.

1,000,000 Facebook fans would be great to have, but you can’t eat a wall post and Retweets don’t pay the rent.
A True Fan is defined as someone who will purchase anything and everything you produce. They will drive 200 miles to see you sing. They will buy the super deluxe re-issued hi-res box set of your stuff even though they have the low-res version. They have a Google Alert set for your name. They bookmark the eBay page where your out-of-print editions show up. They come to your openings. They have you sign their copies. They buy the t-shirt, and the mug, and the hat. They can’t wait till you issue your next work. They are true fans.
Probably 95% of my usage of my own system is to allow me to feel comfortable with a change of plans.
The Do Lectures 2010 went well. Like better than I had hoped. When something goes well, there is always the temptation to make it bigger. But I remember Steve Glenn saying to me in the legendary Bwthan pub, “Everyone will want you to make it bigger, ignore them. Make it better. But keep it like this. This is amazing. Keep it special.” The good thing is we can’t make the tent any bigger, we can’t make forest any bigger. Having those physical limitations helps. So all we can work on is making it more special.
An interesting third approach is one developed by a man named Paul Pimsleur. Pimsleur dedicated his life to understanding and improving language learning process. He observed that the first time you learned a new word, you’d forget it almost immediately. But if you reviewed it again as you were about to forget it, each subsequent review would exponentially increase the staying power of the word.
In the same way that there is no single effect of ‘‘eating food,’’ there is also no single effect of ‘‘watching television’’ or ‘‘playing video games.’’ Different foods contain different chemical components and thus lead to different physiological effects; different kinds of media have different content, task requirements, and attentional demands and thus lead to different behavioral effects.
Although this video is originally titled “Where good ideas come from” I think “How innovation happens” describes much better what the speaker is talking about.
have -> do -> be
When I have or get this in my life, then I will be able to do that, and then I’ll be this (secure, happy, peaceful, powerful).
Enlightened people look at it exactly the opposite.
be -> do -> have
I become the person that I need to be to be able to do whatever it takes to have whatever I want.
