Spring Cleaning Your Brain

Men have gone millions of years without Twitter feeds and list articles. They built empires, mastered the power of flight, and landed on the moon without ever taking a break to look at cats wearing funny outfits. I think I’ll be alright. – 30 Days To X

Twitters a helluva drug. – LaidNYC

Most of the population is not going to exhibit control in their internet usage by only reading select resources while not attention whoring on social networking, so it appears that we may have arrived at the point where, for the average person, the internet will cause them greater harm than being a couch potato. It’s time we all be more thoughtful about how we incorporate the internet into our daily routines, and make sure it doesn’t take over our lives completely. – Roosh

Three men, reaching the same conclusion at the same time. Spring is in the air. Winter built a lot of shitty habits. Time for spring cleaing your brain.

I’ve talked before about my goals vs my actual actions. I have terrible habits with distraction. No matter what rationalization my male hamster comes up with, my smart phone is behind it all.

First thing I see when I wake up and last when I fall asleep.  Habit has killed my productivity.  I’ve been reading a book from the 1800sand i’m shocked by how clear it makes my mind. 30 Days to X is reading The Wind in the Willows right now and while I’m reading Sandow’s System of Physical Training. It’s refreshing to read words from a time when people had time to put thought into their words before they came out.

I also just bought The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

So on that note, I’m going to take a walk and read my book. Turning off the phone. Getting some fresh fucking air. Spring cleaning for you brain.

Social media is a hell of ah drug lol. I deleted all of my social media accounts a few months ago although in my opinion I got nothing against them. I just felt like they were to much of a distraction from real success.

Once you’re done with Douglas Adams’ H2G2 series, give “Shada” a go — it had to be finished by another writer, but it was still started solidly by Adams.

You have to admire starting a book out with a character who realises at five years of age that if God does not exist, there’s a situation vacant that’s demanding the vacuum be filled …

As an Evil Genius, I approve of his message. 🙂

Great choice, that was one of my favorites when I was a kid. There is probably a lot I missed then; perhaps time for a re-read.

I think spring just naturally stirs something deep down.

For our ancestors spring meant the beginning of whatever great works were to happen that year, whether that was the onset of tremendous labor in agriculture, building a cathedral, or marching on enemies/rivals.

The summer campaign starts now.
