Start Making Sense

Buying a NYT bestseller thinking that it will enlighten you and make everything easier…

Getting a new website, assuming that finally your marketing will run itself…

Hunting tirelessly for an agent or publisher to do the heavy lifting for you…

Blaming an employee for a mistake, when it’s your responsibility to make sure your instructions get understood…

Thinking that a planet determines your fate, or that cards tell you something you didn’t already know…

Beating yourself up over past mistakes instead of making decisions that improve your future…

Thinking that you’re entitled to wealth and success handed to you on a silver platter, just because, well, that’s just how awesome you are, isn’t it?

And of course, my all-time favourite: placing responsibility outside of yourself instead of taking ownership, rolling up your sleeves and fixing what’s broken…

None of that makes sense.

And if you look at humanity in general, we tend to make very little sense at all.

Yesterday I mentioned to one of my former monk brothers that I’m on a mission, a fight against irrationality, to which he replied: “That’s totally irrational!”

Yeah, true. It’s an uphill battle.

But I’m fighting the uphill battle anyway, because irrationality and the totally senseless decisions it causes, has an enormous cost.

On your well-being, your business results, and humanity as a whole.

You could call me a Don Quichotte, but sadly, my windmills exist.

Irrationality is real, and costly.

And if you want to finally start making better decisions and get better outcomes, then join me next Thursday, October 25th, for my free Calibrate Reality Dojo webinar.

If I get a say, it’ll rock your world…
