Man’s greatest purpose is to discern how the world truly works, and apply what he learns toward his posterity’s prosperity
If you achieve that you’ve lived well
If you teach others to achieve it, you’ve done more for humanity than most humanitarians could in ten lifetimes
Ten days ago vs This morning
153.8 after a 40 hour fast and dehydrated.
153.2 after 12 hour fast and well hydrated.
Figure I lost at least a pound of fat.
I won’t be doing pictures of all my food going forward but I’m committing to a selfie every 10 days to stay on track
18-year old David.
Fresh college dropout.
Nothing but 3k in savings and a dream.
Spent it all on my gaming set up so I could start streaming.
Grinded hard for 1 year straight.
Didn't even make it.
And a story to tell.
Worth it if you ask me.
I spent years trying to trade stocks without having any of the discipline to be a successful trader.
I learned a whole lot though, not just about markets.
In five years you will arrive at a well-desired destination or at an undesired destination.
You are the captain of your life.
You're either going to be five years older or dead.
If you're still here wouldn't you want to have done all you could?
The stimulus payments are more about purchasing your silence than helping anyone.
UBI is a way to control a population. Societal welfare.
"We can't fix the problems we have so we're just going to transfer all the risk to another problem"
Your ancestors didn't have time to think long term.
It was either eat today or be eaten tomorrow.
Short term thinking is deep in your subconscious,
But you gotta fight it if you want to be wealthy someday.
Most of the world is looking to keep you thinking short term.
Be deliberate in the pursuit of your goals or you will get side-tracked by a quick alternative.
Avoid the mistakes Patrick made in his 20's
- Taking an arts degree straight out of high school
- Playing videogames 20+ hours a week for a decade
- Spending money you don't have until the debt is overwhelming
It took me a long time to dig out of the hole I made
