This week, I opened up about the results of the recent Spartan Ultramarathon that Ryan and I set out for – and failed. I wrote my longest article ever, and I think it’s one of my best yet. I figured 2,000 words was too much to put into the email this week.
We also get back on the podcast to talk through what the race was like in full detail. You can see the article and podcast links below – and as I wrote about, thanks to everyone for the support we felt before, during and after the race.
Now, time for some great content from around the world!
Here are the 6 things to check out this week:
- I finally got on board and started reading “The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield. Holy smokes, do I love the analogy that Pressfield uses about Resistance. I’m early into the book and love it so far.
- One of my favorite lines is “speed kills”. This article gives great insight into why speed is so important for learning a new skill.
- On the heavier side, I really enjoyed this article about “The Crane Wife”. It’s long, emotionally and beautifully written.
- One of my favorite parts of life is laughing every day. I went to see Joe Rogan do live stand-up last week and posted it on Instagram. I also really enjoyed Jerry Seinfeld and Eddie Murphy talking on Netflix’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee show.
- I felt inspired by seeing that Seth Godin just reached a milestone of 11 straight years of posting to his blog every single day. That’s over 4,000 posts without missing a beat, which makes Cal Ripken Jr. look like a wimp.
- An oldie but goodie podcast for you: Tim Ferriss and Casey Neistat.
