Check out my bestselling book on habits, Superhuman by Habit. .
I'm thinking about hosting a under 25 freelancer meetup in San Francisco, would anyone be interested or know anyone that might be interested?
I want it to be structured so that everyone who attends will be discussing in depth about their freelancing and actually engage in conversations to help eachother and talk about their freelancing experiences.
Great book Tynan, thanks for writing it!
One habit I'm trying to get into is making notes and mind maps of books that I find useful. Here are my summaries below:
Good says by OnlineBingoPoint...
Earlier there was no need to verify any hall to play bingo. People just love to flock into those halls and play. But in this age of internet players are very concerned about selecting a proper site to play securely. Thus they prefer to read online bingo review before playing.

Ok, let's address a topic that's certainly on the mind of any twenty-something bachelor(ette) who's planning to live in an RV: how will it affect one's love life?
To that end, Tynan mentioned: 'Pretty much everyone I've met thinks that it's outrageously cool, including attractive girls.'
Personally, I can see it working out, on paper - make sure a girl understands you live out of an RV by choice not necessity, communicate that RV life is actually a result of your bold, adventurous spirit, have a sweet RV bachelor pad with hardwood floors and soft lighting, etc - but I still have my doubts.
On the flip side of the coin, as the uninitiated (I'm still a few weeks away from being 100% moved-in), I have my own reservations and anxieties about even sleeping in the RV. I hear these will pass, but I assume most girls would have the same 'uninitiated' reservations.
So how to approach this?
Are you going to add more features to SETT as i want new features to work with?
Hey, I don't see anywhere to report SETT bugs other than here, at least as a user who doesn't have a blog of his own. Anyway, aside from the iPhone display issue I mentioned yesterday, there's a more serious one I'm seeing today: I can't load up any posts on either the blog or community page. I click on them, and sometimes it does nothing, sometimes the screen briefly darkens or the loading message in the upper left corner comes up, but the post doesn't load. Same problem with the blog and community links in the upper left, but the About Tynan.com link works for some reason. I'm using Chrome version 33.0.1750.146 on an older MacBook Pro with OSX 10.8.5
Yesterday I finished the last Russian tape in my quest to learn every language. I've now completed three months of German, one of Arabic, and three of Russian. I accidentally missed one day due to food poisoning, but not counting that I've stuck with this now for 210 days in a row. My plan is to continue for approximately 870 more days, at which time I will have 27 languages down. Currently I have eight, which are English, Mandarin, Japanese, Spanish, Romanian, German, Arabic, and now Russian.
Russian was by far the hardest language I've ever tried to learn. I don't think it's even close. I feel about half as prepared in Russian as I felt with German, which was the same length of time. If I went to Germany, even having done the tapes four months ago, I think I could get along decently. If I was in Russia tomorrow, I think I'd have a pretty rough time.
I also didn't really like Russian very much. It felt cumbersome in the same way Latin does, requiring so much agreement between various parts of speech. I never felt like I got a great handle on all of the distinct sounds that words are made up of.
People have questioned the utility of trying to learn all of the languages as I'm doing now. Frankly, I question it, too, sometimes. I know that I won't remember it all. My Arabic has withered to the barest of understanding. I have trouble remembering some simple words in Romanian.
I'm mainly learning all of these languages just to see what will happen. Will significant exposure to 27 languages strengthen universal lingual pathways in my brain? Will knowledge of these languages hide in the recesses of my brain, ready to be activated as soon as I go to their countries and refresh my memory?
For any of you interested in the Nau M2 Hoodie (Tynan featured it in his 2012 Gear Post - Zen Edition), it's currently for sale on The Clymb.
When I purchased a bunch of gear in July 2013, I looked all over for the Nau M2, and couldn't find it anywhere. Now, it's on sale at 40 percent off retail.
I'd act fast if you want it, as deals tend to go quick on The Clymb.
Any good finds/new products for wool jeans? I check periodically and recently found these (http://www.howies.us.com/woolim-wool-jeans-indigo.html) but they're a blend and only 40% wool. Are the Versace jeans a blend as well or are they 100% wool?
I finished your book on habits recently and gained an immense amount from it. Though, one thing that I felt was lacking was a discussion on what is to me the most danger to the livelihood of new habits: The weekends.
I have a solid list of triggers that I go through on weekdays that 95% of the time gives me good results and a near 100% completion of all habits. The triggers are highly tied to the fact that I come to the office to work every morning.
On the weekends I lose all of these triggers, and I'm lucky if I even get out of bed on time. My habit tracking highly reflects this truth.
I realize you don't have weekends because you work from home and keep a mostly constant schedule, but to the average 9-5er this problem is the equivalent habit-buster to having to travel every single weekend. It throws you in a chaotic situation where your triggers aren't around to help.
