I have a lot of things in this newsletter that I think are important for you to know about. The first and foremost is that I’m a huge fan of the book I wrote called “The Power of Habit.” The Power of Habit is what I call the “Bible of Habit” because it is the best book on the planet on the subject of habits. It is also the foundation for everything that I write here. And that was true for me as I wrote it.
The second thing was the one I mentioned on the last newsletter, and that is that I have a very good friend who is on the board of the National Council on Exercise. He and I have been talking about the importance of exercising for a long time. We have both taken a number of groups to our gym and we have both noticed the improvements we made.
This is a really good book and I am also very interested in how others can approach the topic. I know that you’re a very passionate gamer, so there’s an interesting discussion of different ways to play the game, and I do think that if you’re a gamer, you should definitely read this.
The National Council on Exercise and the National Weight Control Registry are two very well respected organizations that focus on healthy lifestyle choices. We can’t be sure of the details of the situation in Blackreef, but we were able to read that the Visionaries are using technology to track people who’ve died and the “official” cause of death is a brain aneurysm.
I can understand this. People who die from a brain aneurysm in the first place are very unlikely to be able to recover without the intervention of a neurosurgeon. As a result, you would think this would be the kind of thing that would be put in the public domain. In fact, I’m sure it would be. But as a matter of fact, it isn’t.
The “I-know-that-I-care-right” mentality is pretty much the norm today. So this is the most common way to describe the situation in Blackreef. We get a lot of people who are very active in life, but they’re kind of invisible to our eyes. One of the things that I find most interesting about it is that so many people are just trying to get away from the world and get out of it.
Yeah, its called the “be the kind of thing that would be put in the public domain” mentality. It’s pretty common in corporate America, because they don’t want to be associated with having to share their ideas, so they put them in the public domain, and they think that means they can do whatever they want and nobody can stop them.
I think what that shows is that the people who are into this stuff are like a lot of people who have trouble getting to sleep. They don’t want to get up, or they get up and they can’t sleep. The people who are into this sort of thing are the ones that are trying to do it for the wrong reasons, because they’re trying to forget.
All the way through the movie “The Hunger Games,” you can see some of the characters in the trailer, which is something of an odd choice for a character, but it’s just so easy to get to sleep.
I can certainly relate to this. My wife had a really bad experience with her sleep problem, and she’s been trying to do something about it ever since. We did a lot of research and spent a lot of time in therapy on the issue, and decided that we were going to try to get her to stop watching TV and turn off the computer for a while each night. She’s been doing it for a while now, and it makes a lot of sense.
