Check out my bestselling book on habits, Superhuman by Habit. .
Money is nothing but a way to touch value. If you give value, you will receive value. But, to enjoy life and not be a martyr, you must give value through something that you get value from as well.
So don't try to get money; try to give value. And you can only give value to people who want to do what you do (and so you show them and yourself how to do it better), or if both of you get something you want by doing different things, that you like to do, together.
P.S. You know the whole "You need money to make money" bit. No, that can just help you give value (and so get money) faster. But first you can make money without money.

Men: I made an easy $150 today.
Step number#1 American express is offering a $25 gift card if you order a $200 prepaid debit card. Easy money, I ordered my card today.http://www.americanexpress.com/us/content/prepaid/american-express-prepaid-card/home.html
Step#2: Chase is offering $125 to open up a checking account. Free if you set up direct deposit or sit $1500 in the account. They sent me an offering in the mail, but the banker told me you can find the offer on line.
And finally. A couple months ago I wrote a post regarding unclaimed.org and you guys gave me a -5 rating. Men, this site is LEGIT. I got a $25 check from the site, my girlfriend got $40, and her mother got $125. Stop being stubborn and DO YOUR RESEARCH before you start giving me negative ratings.
Books can be great teachers, or they can just be mental masturbation. It's fun to read a self improvement book, but if your forgetting what you read and not actually improving yourself, you've missed the point.
To get rid of forgetting what you read and engaging in mental masturbation, I've started trying to condense each major part of the book into a 1-2 page summary of the key bits.
Then I summarize all those into a 1-2 page summery of the whole book.
This is awesomely useful because, not only can I come back and essentially re-read the book in 5 minutes, but I can share this with friends and mentors. It's a great gift because you're giving them knowledge you think they should have (like when you recommend they read a book), and you are also saving them hours of reading time.
Let's start with a short introduction: I'm a 18 years old, Dutch guy, and after I beated my 3-year long depression, my life has changed quite a bit. I've quit school, and I came up with a creative solution to get to university. However, this forces me to have a job.The job I have now gives me depressed feelings, and I don't want those anymore. And the work hours, starting at 6 A.M., interferes with my study, so it's not a great job. Sadly, it's the best I can get.
That's the reason I like this blog so much, it gives me some stuff to dream on. And it made me think: could I start something for myself and make enough money? I think I can, but I don't know what will bring in enough money. I have no idea in what area.
I have almost none knowledge of programming (some HTML and a very tiny bit PHP), don't have any real Photoshop skills, study Management Science, I am not particularly creative, and I don't really have more clues. So I don't have anything to go on, but maybe you guys have some ideas? I think the community here is really friendly and supportive, and because of that, I have enough courage to ask for some help.
I hope my English is good enough, it's not my main language, so, please forgive me any mistakes, and I like to know where they are, so I learn from them.
I'm going to put together a book that's about half old blog posts (probably rewritten / polished) and half new material to connect the blog posts into a cohesive book. Could you tell me which of my posts had the biggest impact on you? A link or title or description (that one where you said...) is fine.
You are always satisfied with what you have, and always wanting more.
Aka. Do what you want to do, and find a way to benefit from it.
Aka. Enjoy the process, and take the process you will enjoy
Aka. Enjoy now, find benefit

Hey guys, I've got a great experiment I'm doing with my own blog to see if 1) I give people any value with my writing and 2) If I can make any income doing it.
The start of how I'm gonna find that out is by posting here (and on my facebook and warrior forum), and asking for feedback to know if my writing is useful.
Then I will slowly (over 4 weeks) move all my posts onto my own blog.
The money part will start with a post on my blog titled "Here's How You Can Help Me Keep Writing This Blog", where I will explain how giving me a donation will help me keep writing, and ask for one that the reader thinks is worth half of the value I give them.
At the end of 8 weeks, I will take a look at my results, check them against my goals, and decide if I should keep up the writing. (more detail on the whole thing here).
Hey there, hi to everybody,I've been a tynan.com distant follower for quite some time now, and knowing about his passion for Japan I thought I'd ask a couple of things here, even more so now that SETT is rolling steady and allows easy discussion between the site's followers, who I suppose are like-minded and share his same interests.
So, I'll be staying in Japan for a week and a half minimum starting on Saturday, in Yokohama, for work. I'll have weekends off and possibly an additional week after I complete my job there, so let's say at least 5 days for myself: what can I visit in such short time? This opportunity has come only yesterday so I never really had time to think about what to do and how to organize a decent trip in the country, I only know I'll be spending at least a couple of days in Tokyo and that's it.
But there's much more to visit I guess. Osaka? Sapporo? Fukush...erm, better skip that. Any special place (from any point of view: nature, history, fun)?And my biggest concern: since I don't want to spend all my money, what precautions should I take when looking for a motel/hotel and public transportation?
Anything else is warmly welcome :DThanks in advance to whomever will help out, cheers!
I have had enough of bad food in my life, and my goal is to change it. I think that eating healthy would help me feel better, become healthier and make me feel happier in general.
However, I don't know where to start. So far I have a very limited understanding of what constitutes a healthy diet, and obviously I want to know more. As a complete nerd, I also want to know a little bit of the biology behind good nutrition.
Can anyone recommend a good book or website that would help me get started?
I don't want to go super hardcore with this, and I still want to occasionally eat well-prepared meat. However, I do want to make informed choices about the food I eat.
