The Wisdomous - Forgive, Connect and Record.
Welcome to another edition of The Wisdomous!
This is the eleventh issue. After 10 designs, we are treating ourselves to a newsletter redesign - I hope you like it.
Last week, I treated myself to the longest feature film ever in my life. 4 hours and 2 mins; that is how long Justice League Syneider's Cut is and definitely better than Whedon's.
Besides the binge-watching party, here is a good tip for consistency that I have been reflecting on:
Prime your environment for success. If you want to read more, scatter books around your house. If you want to eat better, only purchase nourishing food. The inverse also applies; remove temptations instead of relying on willpower - reduce friction.
The thing you’re angry at isn’t the issue; your anger is.
Sometimes we have to ditch passion for strength.
Almost all the pleasures of life are best enjoyed as a byproduct. They lose their value if chased directly.
You don't have to be extreme, just consistent.
You can walk a marathon; you can't sprint it.
Beauty warms people, and smart, cools people.

How do we reflect after having it all? : Tom Bilyeu chats with Steven Barlett.
Tools & Tips
If you put something down temporarily, say it out loud. ("I've put my phone on the dresser.")"This engages many more areas of the brain (particularly the language centres), which creates a richer memory and makes it less likely you'll forget where you put it."
