Procrastination Invasion

YouTube Auto-play landed this little gem in my ear:

It’s a TED Talk  by the Blogger Tim Urban – His blog can be found here:   http://www.waitbutwhy.com/

I would not claim that he makes any profound psychological revelations about the phenomena of procrastination.  Yet, I do feel that everyone needs to hear what he has to say; at least once in a while.

If you want something heavier.  Revisit Jordan Peterson’s 12 Rules for life.

In case you have been living in a cave for the last 5 years, check this out:

The hardest one for me; and it ties in with the theme of this post about procrastination, is rule no. 7 Pursue what is meaningful, not what is expedient.  And Maybe couple that with rule no. 2 Treat yourself like someone you are responsible for helping.

I hope you enjoyed this post,now….

Money Made Us Lazy

This post is  an amalgamation of conversations I had over the last few months with potential partners in the sister company LUPR .

Uniquely, this tech venture, LUPR does not need any (more) monetary investment.   What it does need is capital in expertise,  leadership, intelligence, initiative, etc..

Maybe it’s  this novel approach in asking for help in advice and mentorship,  that have almost every last one of the handful of people I offered the partnership to so skeptical.   In their own ways each said;  what basically comes down to: I will invest money,  but can not get otherwise involved.

Is entrepreneurship dead?  Did money make us so lazy that we expect it to roll up it’s sleeves and do the work for us?  Can money think and make discussions?   Are people so afraid to try and fail that they would rather have the buffer of money to blame if things don’t go right right-away? 

My contention is that the modern entrepreneur is lazy, cowardice and decadent.  Change my mind.
