Podcast Episode 47: Collective Preparedness vs Individual Preparedness

Collective preparedness is fragile

We can’t always predict everything

We can’t have stuff for everyone

Only one option, if we get it wrong everyone is hurt

Individual preparedness is anti-fragile

Most people are prepared for the things that they think are most likely

Anyone who is wrong can be helped by those who are right

There are thousands of options with varying degrees of usefulness

Distribution is easier

No single point of failure

Each area, community and person is more likely to know what their needs are

Podcast Episode 46: Time Management

Capture Tasks (Stay Focused)
When you are already doing something and you see something else that needs to be done, write it down wherever you need to so you can remember it later.
Unless it is more urgent or important than what you are doing now
Or it won’t throw you off track
Prioritize Tasks
What is Urgent?
Things that will cause major consequences if they are not done on time
What is most important
What do you enjoy
Plan Tasks
Try to eliminate as many urgent tasks as you can (Focus Funnel Procrastinate on Purpose by Rory Vaden)
Eliminate - Ignore
Automate - Invest
Delegate - Delegate
Permanence of deadline 
Rock - Cannot be changed, you do it at this time or not at all
Wood - Date is set but you could potentially change it
Clay - Better if scheduled but can be moved easily
Water - No scheduling needed, can be done any time
Focus on the most important urgent item and get it done then move on to the next
Take small breaks as desired (pomodoro)
When All your urgent tasks are done, work on the things that are most important and that you most enjoy.

Podcast Episode 44: Crowdsourced Funding

It is difficult to fight piracy.

Are copyrights moral? (another day)

You can get the product for free or maybe watch an ad or something (you would be able to anyway)

Or you can buy the product and then you get a share from all future profits

Podcast Episode 43: Make Everyone Your Coach

Ask For Advice

Ask Questions


Last week we talked about coaching. This week I will share a trick that will let you turn everyone you meet into a potential coach.

When you talk with people, the natural tendency is to do most of the talking but the people who are the best conversationalists are the people that listen the most. They listen and they ask good questions.

The trick is asking good questions, these are questions that allow the other person to share things that are important to them.

Body Language. Where are the feet pointing

While you are asking questions you may as well ask advice about the things that this person is good at.

Remember, only listen to advice from people that know what they are talking about. If someone is unhealthy, discount their advice about health. If they are poor, money. Etc. (always exceptions)
