Hi, it’s me Waldi!
Here’s what’s new:
My blog got a redesign, additional articles, recommendations, and more!
I’ve changed the name and format of this newsletter to better reflect its purpose and cadence.
I’ve redesigned my Instagram channel and have been posting daily since January!
Now, on to this week’s bullets:
1. Timothy Gallway on Focus
“Focus is not achieved by staring hard at something. It is not trying to force focus, nor does it mean thinking hard about something. Natural focus occurs when the mind is interested. When this occurs, the mind is drawn irresistibly toward the object (or subject) of interest. It is effortless and relaxed, not tense and overly controlled.”

2. Tim Ferriss on Making Your Bed
“If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task and another and another. By the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed. Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that little things in life matter.”

3. Embrace Complexity
Today’s world is more complex than anything in the history of humankind. It drives people that are afraid to look for simple solutions and explanations for complex problems. This is often because they’re afraid of complexity. If you want to solve complex problems you have to understand them in-depth first. Thus, you need to embrace complexity, not pretend it doesn’t exist.
4. Telling the truth sets you free
If you don’t know what to do, try telling the truth.
It may mean that you’ll have more uncomfortable conversations, arguments, or debates in the short term, but in the long-term, it’s one of the greatest contributors to a fulfilling life I know. I’ve expanded on this idea in this Instagram Post.
5. Kamal Ravikant on When Magic Happens
“Knowledge is never enough. Even action, if it’s just following a prescribed way, will never fully express your potential. But to dive in, test each theory out, kick the tires, keep what works, discard the rest, add your own — that’s where magic happens.”

6. Elizabeth Gilbert on Transformation
“I’ve never seen any life transformation that didn’t begin with the person in question finally getting tired of their own bullshit.”

7. Kapil Gupta on External Problems
“Beyond a certain basic level, a lot of the problems we’re trying to solve in the external world are actually internal problems.”
