Good ones

  • Enjoy painting, not the idea of having painted
  • Family, friends, hobbies – that’s it
  • Is this person saying what they mean or the exact opposite of what they mean?
  • Would I work as a bartender at night to do this job?
  • Would I want this person to be at my wedding? (my funeral?)
  • How close is this person to their personal legend?
  • Is this knowledge from doing or from planning?
  • Count your time in dog years (multiply it by 7) – to really value it.
  • Do you want to be a life-long student AND practitioner at this?
  • Real food. Not too much. Mostly plants.

Just OK

  • Why are you doing this?
  • How is this person asking or talking about themself?
  • The older something is, the better it is.
  • How will you be doing this one year from now?
  • Does this person dress like “themself”?
  • What does this person’s hands say about the type of person they are (same for cars)
  • All verbal threats are signs of weakness
  • People can only process one idea at a time

Works in Progress

  • Flex your abs when you talk so you don’t speak too much  (really not liking this one).
  • Does this person have any risk if they are wrong?
  • Did you nod your head, breathe and then respond?
  • To see if someone knows just ask them how over and over.
  • Wait 24 hours if you are emotional about something before responding.
  • What’s the difference between doing this from first principles and wishful thinking?
