Weekend Thought Food: Talent & Insecurity, Inspiration & Experiments

This week has been an odd confluence of disparate ideas from my Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube friends all leading in the same direction. Here is summary and pointers. The full story and a cool bonus (think MnM) is going out to my email subscribers tomorrow night.

Talent

Had a great exchange with my friend Matt Harris sparked by his comment “talent so often gets in the way of success.” The whole scoop is in the email. Until then check out Matt’s blog post about it and follow @MeridianMogul on Twitter.

Insecurity

Thanks to my friend Nicola Cairncross, author of The Money Gym, for this post “Insecurity Doesn’t Pay the Bills” by Dave Navarro as shared via her new @NicolaCairnX Twitter account.

Inspiration

My new friend Gail Lynne Goodwin added to the theme with a tweet “Do you hold back your dreams wondering “what will people think”? Who cares! It’s your dream, it’s your life- go live it#IMT
Check out the inspirational quotes she has been collecting first hand and follow @InspireMeToday on Twitter.

Experiments

My 5 minutes x 30 days post started the public accountability on my 30 day experiment around my kettlebell throwing. Scott Young calls them “30 day trials” but I much prefer the kinesthetics of “30 day experiment” — much more mad scientist!
The last 3 days I’ve hit my momentum goal with a few (1-3) clean and presses. Not what most would consider spectacular, but they are exactly fulfilling the habit forming part of this MnM goal.

So, that’s pretty much been my week online (taken in quick breaks between all of the usual PhD and family stuff). Check out some links, do something with them, and share your results below.

P.S. If you want the extra stuff in the future sign up to receive updates and announcements via email over there ->.
