Welcome to the 5/12/17 edition of “Evan’s Friday Briefing,” a quick list of what I’ve been enjoying, learning, and trying out.
Book I Started Recently
Umberto Eco’s “Art and Beauty in the Middle Ages.” Only 120 pages but doesn’t need to be any longer. Will definitely read more Eco upon completion of this work.
Remember the project I mentioned in a couple previous Friday Briefings? Well that project is now live! FightDegeneracy.org. We intend to become a nonprofit and organize real world campaigns and events based on developing a more traditional counter-culture. Our motto is “Strength in Tradition” because we stand for the values that built the foundations of American strength: unbreakable families, strong local communities, a healthy spirituality, a holistic education, honor, integrity, and the like. Check it out!
Self-Development Trick I’ve Been Trying Out
Jerry Seinfeld’s “Don’t Break The Chain!” trick. Take a calendar and make an X on each day you accomplish something you want to get in the habit of doing daily. Soon you’ll have a nice little chain going. It’ll then become second nature to keep doing what you’re doing for the sake of not breaking the chain. I use this handy dandy web version.
My Tip Of The Day
“Find your passion and monetize it” is a ubiquitous idea in the self-development community. Some people don’t have a clue about what their true passion is. One easy exercise can probably nail it down: Ask yourself, “What did I love doing as a child and teenager?” And chances are you can monetize it.
Great Quote I’ve Been Ruminating On
