Simple Living

Recently, I saw a Tweet about an article called "How to Do. One. Thing. At. A. Time" and it made me think about The Minimalists.  Sometimes life moves on and I don't spend the same time I used to in terms of consuming content from my favorite sources.  But that's ok.

Then I saw the email with that podcast episode called Simpleliving.  I must say these guys have continued to improve how they deliver their message of living a meaningful life and spreading the word about what it means to be a minimalist. 

Now they have the YouTube version of their podcast episodes which gives another perspective than just listening to them.  Here's the podcast episode and below the video I will include my own notes as I watch/listen:

Eat, Fast, Live Longer – BBC

Almost every time I talk to someone about Intermittent Fasting, I get a reaction and a face as if this is something totally crazy.  It is interesting to me to see that most people think that we as human beings have always been eating three meals a day.

To this I can only say that it is yet another one of those side effects of the industrial revolution.  And to this I can say that we are not robots or machines, we are humans.

Now. Before you jump into any thoughts based on what you just read, watch this documentary.

Way of Life

Persistence, perseverance, practice.  Some of the words that came to mind as I watched this documentary.

What defines the greatness of Men? Is it just the results you get? Or the commitment to pursuit your dreams? Why some people are afraid of the ocean while others can’t live without dropping 40 feet waves?

This short documentary follows the story of João de Macedo, an underdog big wave surfer who tries to run the world tour without a major sponsor. Filmed over the last 6 months in some of the most iconic big wave surf spots around the world.

TechCrunch & WeWork

“WeWork’s Adam Neumann talks with Connie Loizos about building operating systems for buildings, selling services, and building partnerships.”

I’ve been doing my remote work at WeWork and I’ve been enjoying having a very cool working space where not only I can network with others but also have interesting views from the city.

Create Something of Value

Isn’t this the real truth? …

we say we are planning, we are prepping, we are raising money. We are trying for a bigger market. …What’s wrong with the small market?! … Can you create something of value for 3 people? Can you create something of value for 9 people?

Blog Everyday

I’ve heard this before from Seth Godin and I just heard it again.  It is such a good reminder and a good point.  You never know what you said in the past may help yourself or someone else in the future.

I also think that it brings a lot of clarity to our mental process and in general to know more about ourselves and what we want to do moving forward with our life.

Now, if you happen to be inspired by this and don’t have a blog and/or don’t know how to start one, the easiest way I can recommend to you is this: WordPress.com
