A Few Tips, Tricks And Hacks That Will Make Your Life A Whole Lot Easier

October 18, 2017 | 1 Comment » | Topics: main, Useful |

View your time as an investment, and pay attention to what gives you the greatest return

Think of how stingy you are with your money: if someone on the street asks for $10, you’re not giving it to them. There’s no way you’re giving a 30% tip for a normal dining experience. And so on.

And yet so many of us just waste ungodly amounts of our time. We throw it away, every day. I know I do unless I’m careful. What helps me to not waste time is to see it as an investment, and to keep track of the returns I get for my investment.

This approach has led me to recognize that some things offer incredible immediate return on investment: a night spent learning a new song on my preferred instruments, for example, gives me a lifetime of being able to play that song. That’s an incredible return. Other investments are more like low-interest, high security, long-term investments: going to the gym, eating right, etc. Some, like reading good books, are kind of a combination of both.

But many activities are worthless from an investment perspective: whatever benefit they seem to give doesn’t last any longer than the activity itself.

The Daily Man-Up

"One of the first questions people ask or wonder after following along live during races like #moab240 is what about sleep? Good question, as is clear, gotta keep moving. It’s a race to 240 miles on foot and the clock never stops. You must stop to eat, to get feet bandaged, etc., but not necessarily to sleep. My goal was to finish the race before no sleep began to wreak havoc on my body. But the deal again, is when you are sleeping you are not covering miles which is the name of the game. So in general sleeping = bad. Here was my sleep for the past four nights.

Friday zero

Saturday a 23 minute nap by the trail, two 12 minutes naps like pictured when energy waned.
And, 1 one minute nap where I fell asleep then popped right back but I asked Taylor, how long did I sleep? He said one minute, so I said lets go. 
Sunday 1 hour 15 minutes. My body was not performing right so I decided to actually lay down. Afterwards I felt good and ran hard for multiple hours, which I hadn’t been able to do in at least a day. But still it’s a craps game. If you can run near your highest level on zero sleep and not lose any time, perfect! Not many can. 
Total sleep during 79 hours of running, a few minutes over 2 hours. And who knows if any of what I wrote here makes sense? Probably doesn’t as I still haven’t slept, but I did take a shower. #winning haha"

Last Statement:

I want you all to know, everyone with all my heart, soul, mind and strength. Thank you for being here today to honor Falicia Prechtl, whom I didn’t even know. To celebrate my death. My death began on August 2, 1991 and continued when I began to see the beautiful and innocent life that I had taken. I am so terribly sorry. I wish I could die more than once to tell you how sorry I am. I have said in interviews, if you want to hurt me and choke me, that’s how terrible I felt before this crime. I am sorry, it is her innocence and her life which began the remorse every since December 1, 1991. I have embraced life. Thank you for being a part of my life. I love you. May God be with us all. May God have mercy on us all. I am ready. Please do not hate anybody because…….(end of statement)
