Validation, Doing Things Poorly, Showers, and Potential
|Isaac Lien||Jan 1||1|
Happy New Year! 🥳
The New Year is a great time to reflect on the previous year and plan for the future.
Below are some thoughts I’ll be keeping in mind as I plan for 2021.
🎞️ My Favorite Short Film Ever
Why not start the year off with a smile? Please enjoy my favorite short film, Validation. (16 minutes)
🤷♂️ Do it Poorly
In college, my teacher shared some counterintuitive wisdom.
“Not everything worth doing is worth doing well.”
This was the total opposite of everything I believed up until that point. I was an unwavering perfectionist who avoided things I knew I couldn’t excel in. However, this mindset shift permitted me to try new things and make mistakes.
🚿 The Best Shower of Your Life
The next time you take a shower, imagine that it is the last shower you will ever take. Appreciate each moment of this daily ritual. The warmth of the water on your skin. The fresh smell of the shampoo. The friction of the towel as your dry off.
If you commit to taking this exercise seriously, this will be the best shower of your life.
Get Paid in Bitcoin
More than 20% of all dollars ever printed were created in 2020. As a result, many investors have chosen to store their wealth in Bitcoin, a truly scarce asset. But what is the best way to invest in Bitcoin? One great way is to start earning your paycheck (or a portion of it) in Bitcoin.
What if your company doesn’t give you the option to be paid in Bitcoin? No problem. There is now a way to receive your paycheck in Bitcoin, with no action needed from your employer.
🦸♀️ Who Could You Be?
One of the questions I try and ask myself as much as possible is: “Who could you be?”
How are you preventing yourself from reaching this potential?
Who could you be if:
you didn’t hit the snooze button every morning?
you spent one hour every evening working on your passion project?
you eliminated unhealthy foods and habits from your routine?
you spend your idle thoughts on gratitude rather than self-doubt?
you weren’t afraid of what other people think?
Who could you be?
Here’s to a great 2021.
