  • Welcome. If you haven’t been following along, it’s okay. You’re not behind, you’re just where you are.
  • The coach tool at the Crash Override Network has a great step by step break down that makes it really easy to start.
  • If that site doesn’t fit your needs or you want more, that’s okay, there are more recommendations under Start Here on the repo.
  • Feeling more ambitious? Review the list of OneThing articles and pick one to catch up on.

Feeling dumb or stupid about how not-l33t you are? Angsting over some silly thing you “know better than to do.” Stop. That isn’t useful. Regret is only of use if it prompts an actual change in behavior. Maybe it’s NOT you that sucks. Could be it’s the technology and you could come up with a fix that would help lots of people. Look forward and make a plan.

Fast tip, turning off retweets might save your sanity. For the longer haul, meditation has science backing it up to help with all sorts of issues. Here in LA, almost no location is more a stones throw away from a Yoga studio that offers free meditation, but Yoga studios don’t do it for everyone. You can try this free course or YouTube Channel of Palouse Mindfulness teaching the clinically researched Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction style techniques. UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center also offers both online and in person resources of a similar secular approach. If you want something in Culver City, Peak Brain Institute will be hosting a 6 week MAPs I session starting next week… sadly on Tuesdays. PBI does have free classes on Monday, Wednesday and Sundays.
