Everyone will hate this stupid list of my favourite nootropics

Everyone will hate this stupid list of my favourite nootropics

I find nootropics – brain-boosting drugs – to be an interesting topic. Unfortunately, when I sat down to write about my top three nootropics, I created a stupid list that everyone will hate. If you like nootropics, this won’t help you. If you don’t,…

This ‘time paradox’ tells you your life is broken

This ‘time paradox’ tells you your life is broken

You can tell a lot about your life by how quickly time flows for you. For me, this is the best canary in the coal mine. When my perception of time breaks, that’s usually the first sign that something is going wrong. And based…

What Seinfeld’s nemesis can teach you about success

What Seinfeld’s nemesis can teach you about success

I’ve been rewatching Seinfeld recently. It’s a genius show – how else could four characters generate enough content for nine seasons? Even though society has changed – mobile phones, let alone smart phones, solve a lot of the problems – the writing still snaps…

What does your unconscious want?

What does your unconscious want?

Your unconscious mind is vast, mysterious and powerful. It controls all of your automatic processes, from beating your heart to processing your vision. And then there’s your memories, your habits and those beliefs which you don’t even know you have. Plus your emotions. Plus…

You know I mean business when I start pressuring you

You know I mean business when I start pressuring you

I try to be a mellow guy in all things, including my advertising. You have enough people trying to guilt or bully you into doing things their way. I’m from the school of marketing that says I should build you up into a better…

Leave half-lives to isotopes

Leave half-lives to isotopes

If you feel you’re not living the life you should be, you’re not alone. Society is not optimised towards allowing you to live your potential. That’s not its fault, though, as the universe isn’t optimised for civilisation. We’re all just trying to make do…

Homer Simpson = Self-hypnosis Genius?

Homer Simpson = Self-hypnosis Genius?

I often said I’m not so much a fan of The Simpsons as its disciple. It was the #1 show when I was growing up – in the world and in my mind. It was clever, quotable and utterly addictive. I haven’t seen an…

If you could master anything in 6 months…

… what would you do? There’s that saying – learn like you’ll live forever, live as though you’ll die tomorrow. Well, I can’t offer immortality. But I can offer the ability to learn anything quicker and easier than ever. And what would that do…

How to have more… um… well, you know it when you see it, I guess?

How to have more… um… well, you know it when you see it, I guess?

It’s pretty hard to learn a new state of mind. Let’s say you want more mental and physical resilience. You could head over to a search engine, punch in ‘how to be tougher’ and wade through a billion pages to find the gold in…

Too obsessive? Not obsessive enough? Here’s the antidote

Too obsessive? Not obsessive enough? Here’s the antidote

You should always be highly suspicious of anything that makes contradictory claims. There are no shoes that make you both taller and shorter. There’s no energy drink that calms you down, too. How can one treatment, say, both raise and lower blood pressure? That’s…
