It’s 2018 and we’ve got a couple of powerful tools for you to make the best start in the new year, personally, socially, and professionally.
And we do it all through the lens of our incredibly fancy new film-grade camera, so check out the video to see us in our high-def glory!
We’ve both started using The Daily Stoic Journal which, unlike most blindly optimistic journals, actually helps you to order your thoughts, tune into what’s important in your life, and see the huge difference that only a day or just a few hours can make to your mood and perceptions.
Dre shares some of his personal journal entries and we break down the psychology and philosophy of keeping a regular chronicle of your life.
No doubt you’ve been bombarded with articles about how to make and keep New Year’s Resolutions, but we break down this flawed, often self-destructive concept, and propose something different – something which actually creates lasting, psychologically healthy change.
We call it ‘New Year’s Dissolutions’ and it’s all about starting from where you are (where else could you start from?) and drilling down to find out why you want to change. Once we have the why, we can begin to dissolve the negative habits and thoughts surrounding change and begin to cultivate new habits and behaviours. If we don’t, like a trauma victim refusing to deal with the source of their pain, everything we do next is built on foundations of quicksand.
Here’s to 2018, everyone. Thank you for being part of this journey with us.
