I was talking to someone the other day about how it was back in the day with no internet and cell phones. I remember life was hard, but we didn’t even realize it because we didn’t know any better. Life was a little more complicated, but yet easier in a way…
Let’s look at life a little more simplistically for a second. Everything in our lives pretty much breaks down to:
Can it kill me?
Can I kill it?
Can I mate with it?
And it’s that mentality that is pretty much woven into the DNA of each and every one of us.
Sounds kinda terrible, but if you think about it, we’ve gotten along pretty well for the past hundred thousand years or so. But of course, the reason why you’re tuned in right now is not to simply learn to survive. You wanna learn a few tips and tricks for living the good life, so here goes today’s lesson…
Not everything is black and white
Honestly, if you want to evolve as a person, you have to evolve your thinking first. I don’t have time to go into all that because there are something like 25 points that you have to truly focus on if you want change in your life. So instead, today, I’m going to leave you with this quote from Naveen Jain CEO of Intelius:
“The human brain works as a binary computer and can only analyze the exact information-based zeros and ones (or black and white). Our heart is more like a chemical computer that uses fuzzy logic to analyze information that can’t be easily defined in zeros and ones.”

P.S. This is actually a rewrite from my daily newsletter. It’s one of my first ones and I’m proud of the fact that we’re heading into year 3 of these. It’s always fun to look at your own history. Speaking of which, I’d love to hear your take on your own personal history. Do you have anything that you would like to share that has changed your way of thinking? Feel free to reply back in the comments. Talk soon!
