Enjoyed this. Some of your humor is a bit "male" oriented, but I'm an older, uptight female from New England, so perhaps I'm the only one that found it to be so. 😉 And with that, I will not complain for the rest of the day.

Noah, thanks for insights on Total Recall.

What I have come to realize in life is not to allow my five senses to rule my world. What I mean by that is, to begin with the end in mind and live from there. I don't have to understand how I'm going to get there, my role is to believe that it's possible and move in that direction. You called this having a clear intention.

Thanks again.

Short and bang on point - good effort Noah. Keep them coming! Have you read any other books recently which have had this impact that you can distil down?? Maybe Deep Work by Cal Newport??

I read this book about 2 years ago. I was taken back how Arnold would write on index cards his goals for the year. So simple but so effective.
