Check out my bestselling book on habits, Superhuman by Habit. .
I was recently nominated by a reader (thanks, whoever you are) for the Texas Social Media Awards.
Judges choose the winner based on the comments that people leave about the bloggers and their sites. If you'd like to leave a comment for me I'd be grateful.

Wow... I can't believe you guys found both of the things I was looking for. I consider myself a fifth level black belt of finding stuff online, but I've been humbled.

It's about that time of the year for me to ask for your feedback to make BTYB even more better than it already is.
What's very curious to me is that my readership grows VERY slowly. Given how awesome these posts are, I would expect it to grow by 100% every hour or so.
Anyway, if you could take a couple minutes and fill out my survey, I'd really appreciate it. Please be totally honest - it's 100% anonymous and I'd much rather have good criticism than an ego boost.
Here's a quick list of some fantastic things that I don't feel like writing full reviews on.
Razor Blades - Merkur platinum coated. NOT feather, which are good but not as good.
Monospace Font for programming - Bitstream Vera (free)
There are about a billion and one opinions on which workout program is the best. Should you run? Should you lift weights? Should you swing your legs gaily on a Richard Simmons' Gazelle?
There's one answer that will work for pretty much everyone: Crossfit.
Crossfit is designed to be a total workout system. It addresses the 10 areas of fitness (strength, endurance, agility, flexibility, cardiovascular health, balance, and four more that I've forgotten). The end result? You get in such good shape that you can tackle any sport or activity, from basketball to mountain climbing.
I mentioned the idea a few times in the past, and people seemed to like the idea of having forums here. I do too, so here they are.
The forums should make things a lot more interactive around these parts. You can ask for advice, post your own stories and tips, or just chat with all the other cool BTYB readers. With your help, I'm going to make it into the only forum on the internet dedicated to living an awesome life.
I'll be checking the forum several times a day, and probably posting every day too. Stories that are too short (or that I'm too short on time for) will also go there. So help me get some momentum by registering for an account and posting something interesting!
Before I start this post - thanks so much to people who came to Karaoke. It was mostly people I already knew, but one reader, Curtis, came. I thought it was totally awesome that he read about Karaoke here and decided to go. Even better, he nailed Guns 'N Roses' Welcome to the Jungle. Also in attendance were my brother and his friends, Steve, Anissa, and Dan from work, and Todd and Doug who helped me run the show.
I had no idea what I was getting into. Things like "hey, I should probably have music for when no one is karaokeing" never even occurred to me. All I had was the leaked copy of Jay-Z's Kingdom Come, so I kept playing that. There was silence, there was no crossfading. That part of the show was a disaster. I also had no idea how to hook stuff up to their system, so the first hour was spent doing that. I felt really bad for people who came during that part.
Finally things got rolling, although I think only 4 people I didn't know sang songs. It wasn't too busy because the weather was cold.
I've got a lot of good stories coming up, just not much time and no good internet connection (on purpose). For now, you can read my recent interview at Bipolar Nation. I have another interview coming up at Sole Goal.
In other news, my stalker wrote me another letter. I'll scan it and write about it soon. Adios!
YES! Thanks to JOOOOOOODI
Also, I can't imagine how we wouldn't win. I plan on running every day, lifting weights every other day, and learning 1-2 more languages by the time the show films in June.
