I’m sending this newsletter to 500+ people for the first time.
Thank you for opening this email. Appreciate you… truly.
Now onto the Treasure…
1. Call an old friend
One of the best things I’ve done in the past week was have a two-hour phone call with Tuesday Treasure subscriber Deedo.
When we get lost in a good conversation, we find ourselves in a state of flow where we completely forget about everything else in the world (that’s the reason I started the podcast).
Let this be a reminder to call an old friend today.
Here’s a breakthrough insight I had as a result of this conversation…
On the one hand, everything we do matters.
Especially when we’re pursuing the highest version of ourselves. The food we eat, when we go to sleep, how we perform in each moment. Everything matters.
On the other, nothing really matters.
We’re all just a bunch of chimps floating on a rock in space. Which means there’s no reason to sweat the small stuff (especially when it truly is outside our control). Nothing matters.
Can we hold both to be true? I believe so. And even moreso, the better we are able to balance these two… the better we can tackle life.
3. Take breaks (interesting fact of the week)
Today I learned…
National regulations require air traffic controllers to take a break every two hours.
Because if not, we’d have planes flying into each other. Performance decreases rapidly after 120 minutes.
What makes us think we’re any different?
We can break up our longer work sessions with walks, meditation sessions (even five minutes helps!), or yoga.
Something tells me if you followed these 10 rules, you’d end up in a pretty good place in life.
My favorite is:
0.08 Commit to staying consistent with a new habit for 30 days before raising the bar.
Reply to this email with your favorite from the list.
5. How many habitable planets in the galaxy?!
300 million, according to NASA.
This blew my mind.
Figured you might enjoy it as well.
6. We’re all one (quote of the week)
And this quote fits well here…
“The same things that make up stars make up us. We are all connected to the energy of a higher power, so in essence, having faith in the universe, or god, or whatever you want to call it is having faith in yourself and vice versa.”
~Russ, It’s All In Your Head
7. What’s on your mind?
