Anyone else think Ben Simmons needs a good therapist? Guy is going through it right now.
Goals for the week
Live: So I listened to all of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson this weekend and got a lot out of it. In the book, Manson talks about his friend, Josh who died during a party in his adolescence. After his death, Mark went into a deep depression and had dreams about Josh. One night, he had a dream where Josh told him to live his life. After that chapter, I had to pause the audiobook and just reflect, am I living or am I dead? Obviously, if you are reading this, I am alive scientifically speaking but, am I holding myself back in any way? I am nowhere near my full potential and have not accomplished what I’ve wanted in this life. I truly think that if you are being held back in any way by yourself or some external force, then you are dead. The main message from this book is to give a f*ck about things you actually care about. Mark puts this final message in such an elegant way, “One can not just stop giving a f*ck about something, you just have to find something else worth giving a f*ck about”.
Mediate: This is just me ranting about how much my mediation habit has gone through the cracks. I just need to implement some good ole habit stacking (thanks James Clear) to mediation and I’ll be golden.
