Easy choices, hard life. Hard choices, easy life. - Jerzy Gregorek


Yesterday before going to bed, I opened Tim Ferriss's TED talk Why you should define your fears instead of your goals. It's an attractive title for deep night sleep and motivated morning wake-up. The result is that this 13-minute video has the answer I am looking for years of making choices.


... what’s on the other side of fear; nothing. People are nervous for no reason because no one’s gonna come out and slap you or beat you up. - Jamie Foxx

It's another sentence hit me in this morning. I always fear to face my fears. I thought I failed my goals because of a lack of self-discipline and life experience, but now I turned to question my fear instead of setting up endless goals. It's simple though not easy.


Fear like the air surrounding us, it's an important, ubiquitous truth but hard to tell. However, the most amazing thing about Tim Ferriss is that he is really good at transforming invisible power to visible, by definition, journal and questions. By this way,  you could train your mind like train your muscle. I am inspired a lot by his journals and books to control abstract mind power.

    @5plus6 I'm glad to hear you discovered Tim Ferriss. He has influenced a lot of my thinking about productivity and fear.

      @brandonwilson I discovered 'The 5-minute Journal' and watched the video about 'how Tim Ferriss does his 5 Minute Journal'. I told myself he is really a genius! So I started to google him and listen to his podcasts which are my favourite now.
