hope you had a great week :))
Tim Ferriss has a new book out, so it’s no surprise that he is featured on every podcast and every blog that I follow. He has always been a bit too geeky, too analytical and too self-centered for my taste, but nonetheless I value a lot of his ideas and content. He seems to get more “real” and a lot deeper with his stuff since he is openly talking about his suicide attempt years ago and since he has made overcoming fear a central theme of his work. One of his quotes from the Design Matters podcast below:
It’s very hard to achieve goals if you have the emergency brake on, and the emergency brake is fear.
I think it is a cool ideas to dissect the techniques of world-class masters across many genres as he did in his new book Tools of Titans
. In one of the reviews it even gets called “the operating system for success, happiness and health”. As always in the self-help genre: In the end you need to follow the instructions and turn them into habits. Reading the book might be a good start but no a solution in itself. I think I will write about our generation’s self-help-book-addiction some day.
I have created a Spotify playlist for all songs featured on this newsletter and have added all songs posted previously: 3-Things Friday Turntable
Wishing you a great weekend,
