    What would your life look like if you were a character in a computer game?

    A number of independent thinkers and scientists are leaning into this idea – or the broader one that our current reality could simply be a simulation in a computer. It makes for an excellent thought experiment. Not for what you can do to change this – you are the ghost in the machine if we accept the idea – but if you are simply a character in a grand simulation, a great game or story, which future or story would you choose for yourself? One of pain and anguish, or one of fun and adventure? One of poverty and servitude, or one of wealth and service? And what’s stopping you?…

    Free Journaling Playbook Released

    This is a really quick post to say that I have created a journaling playbook to help you get started with journaling. It’s built around a short morning session and another short evening session – both around 10 minutes. Each session blends gratitude to enhance your mood and mental state (which we could all do with right now), planning and goal setting (the easy edition) and the all-important analysis (core journaling) plus a handful of other tips. In the playbook are two templates you can use to fill in each day, or adapt to your preferred medium. I will be releasing other freebies in time, and if there is something…

I am studying an old Extraordinary by Design course which, I think, was supplemental material from when I bought the Code of the Extraordinary Mind when it was first released. It has taken me some time to get around to it! The course is broken into 12 modules, each reflecting the 12 areas of life we should all seek to improve ourselves in, set goals in, and seek balance in. To live a fulfilling life we should seek to balance the 12 areas and, by doing so, often find more opportunities arise and more abundance manifests…

    A Letter from the Future

    As we draw to the close of the year (and the decade), it’s time to review where we’ve come from and where we’re going. Personally, I often think about this on my journey to “Become Human” as I unpick limiting beliefs and outmoded paradigms that no longer serve me, and the end of the year is a great time to do this. A powerful technique to help is the “Letter From Future You.” Many coaches ask you to think of yourself a year ahead and write down what you are grateful for having achieved that year. You then review it and if you’re not super-psyched by what you have written…

    Think & Grow Rich

    In this video summary from the 2000 Books channel on YouTube, Mani Vaya presents a great overview and distillation of the book. The main points are presented succinctly and with enough depth to understand the key elements that yield success – and this is not just financial, but also personal. Think & Grow Rich is one of the foundation books in this genre that has been recommended over and over again, and much of what is presented today by the many modern coaches, speakers and trainers are essentially different versions of the contents of this book with their own angles and nuances. This video summary talks about how we can…
