I love to share the good news about the people and things I’ve come to love. Here are some of my favs:
LifeUnstuffed.com: Karen Clifton’s blog about living a lighter, freer, better life. Since she’s based in the Seattle area, Karen comes and helps me unstuff my life with some regularity. It turns out what you let go of is at least as important as what you acquire.
Lifehacker.com: I love being able to visit this site and get tips and tricks for hacking my time, my brain, my relationships, and my work. Very few days pass when I don’t find an article I love on this site.
Steve Pavlina’s blog: He calls it personal development for smart people. I call it watching Steve be Steve. Over the years, as he has tried new things, he has taken his readers along for the ride. Not everything he does is for everybody — see also his most recent relationship adventures — but it shouldn’t be. It’s Steve being Steve.
Other blogs I adore include (in order of favoriteness):
- Eric Barker uses unlikely experts to help you hack life.
- James Clear presents science-based ideas for a better life.
- Mini Habits author Stephen Guise’s Deep Existence
- Mark Manson is an obnoxious everyman who nonetheless makes excellent points in almost every one of his posts.
Pat Allen: Pat’s rules for hacking the biochemical facts of love as well as the yin/yang duality of relationships has been a revelation for me. She says that in a functional relationship, there is someone who is cherished for their feelings and someone who is respected for their thinking. To expect to be both cherished AND respected, she says, is a narcissistic fantasy harbored by people who mostly end up alone. A good place to start is her book, “Getting to I Do.”
Savage Love: Dan Savage is the world’s apologist for letting people be the rampantly erotic, messy, lovely creatures they are. And people the world over love bringing their problems to him to solve. Part kinky ringmaster and part recovering but still moralizing Catholic, he offers some firm rules and guidelines about how to hack human sexuality and relationships. Unless you have it all figured out, a visit to the university of Savage Love is a must. For getting your fix while on the go, I also highly recommend the Savage Love app, available for both Android and Apple devices.
The subconscious mind
Here’s a wonderful article about the nature of the sub-conscious mind. If you’ve ever wondered why time seems to speed up as you age, it’s because more and more of your life has been automated, i.e. turned over to the subconscious mind.
Are you pulling against the locomotive that is your subconscious? I help self-aware professionals get off the white-knuckling, try-harder track and make fast and lasting gains in their work and lives.
