Humans complicate everything

Humans complicate things. Maybe everything. You don't need a GPS watch to run, a $50 to-do app to be productive or a stress-free environment to think abundantly.

Successful people get it done. No frills, no frowns.

1. Advice for life

Legit advice, Tim.

2. MOVE

C'mon people. 20 minutes of exercise per day isn't that hard.

Here's more information and some advice from New York Times wellness columnist Gretchen Reynolds.

4. We complicate productivity

Find your zen.

When you notice yourself trying to go to distractions or busywork, pause. Notice the fear of uncertainty. Breathe.

Explore the feeling. See how it feels in your body. Stay with this physical feeling for a minute, and learn that you are OK despite this fear of uncertainty. There is a basic goodness in your heart that will always be there, even if you don’t know how this task or any moment will turn out.

5. Not Too Old To Code

This is an interesting Kickstarter campaign raising funds to complete a book on learning to code (and making a living from it) as an adult. I love the idea of 1) learning to code as an adult and 2) crowdfunding a passion project. Good luck Scott!

Have a great week!
