The Power of Staying Put
It’s no secret we love Morgan Housel. We reference him time and time again because everything he says is spot on. If you don’t know, he has a new podcast and we’re enjoying hearing Morgan every bit as much as we love reading him. In the episode “The Power of Staying Put,” Morgan says, “There are so many times in life where what you do is less important than how long you’ve been doing it for.” It sounds a lot like taking the long view.
The Luckier You Are The Nicer You Should Be
We all know the Golden Rule. Morgan Housel may have just created the Platinum Rule. And now may be the right time to adopt it. Click here to read about an essential skill leading to non-lucky success over time. Hint: being nice goes a long way.
If you want more Morgan Housel, don’t forget about our podcast with him long before his hit book sold 3 million copies.
Try a Media Fast
What if, for one whole week, you did a media fast?
You know… like, don’t consume any media at all. No screens, no devices, don’t even pick up a newspaper.
No. Media. Period.
Is one week too long? Then scratch that… make it three days. THREE DAYS. That’s just a long weekend. You can do it, I promise.
Give it a shot. And when you do, pay close attention to your emotional state. How does it make you feel? Happy? Sad? Energized? Exhausted? All of the above? None? Something else? I don’t know how it will make you feel… though I have my suspicions.
When I’ve done media fasts, I find myself feeling calm. Really calm. And to me, that feels good. Really good.
Which makes me wonder… if taking a media fast makes me feel so good, why do I ever go back to it at all?
