Need your perspective about using the work "hacking"

I value your thoughtful perspective about a name for a concept:We know about lifehacker.com. Recently, I've been dabbling into bio-hacking, improving our biology -- guys like Tim Ferris and Dave Asprey (bulletproofexec.com). There are other concepts for hacking too like hacking your memory or hacking your mind.Here's what Mark Zuckerberg says about hacking:The word ‘hacker’ has an unfairly negative connotation from being portrayed in the media as people who break into computers … In reality,…See More

Low-Hanging Fruit is Probably Costing You -- Swing for the Fences!

Posted on July 30, 2014 at 6:00am 4 Comments

Low hanging fruit feels good. A little. And for a little while.

But what’s the cost of always going for low-hanging fruit? If it’s keeping us from swinging for the fences, then the price is high indeed.

Babe Ruth struck out more than anyone. But he crushed a ton of home runs. No one has ever said he was just going for low-hanging fruit.

Every so often we have to swing for the fences.

What can this look like? ...

Do the Impossible – 50 Stellar Quotes (slideshow)

Posted on July 17, 2014 at 2:47pm 0 Comments

Penny and I are on a new, healthy eating plan, and it’s paying dividends. Even so, at times, there is a strong temptation to revert to past patterns we have known for a long time. My wife was having one of these temporary episodes last evening. (Believe me, I have had my own!)

But she said, “I need to read again about this new style of eating.” She was right. I once heard a leader say that whenever he loses some steam about a project he is working on, he will sit down at a large desk or table and spread everything out — all of the plans and paperwork related to his project. Soon the fire returns.

How I Will Lose 25+ Pounds of Body Fat in 10 Weeks

Posted on June 17, 2014 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

This is not a promo for a product or business ... just a friendly blog post. I’m engaging a “slow-carb” eating plan, developed by Tim Ferris.

Our physical well-being affects other areas of our lives: business and finances, family and social, even spiritual.

CURRENT UPDATE: I've bid farewell to 16+ pounds of body fat in 6 weeks. I have most likely actually lost 17 or 18 pounds of body fat. Why? Because I've been consistently doing resistance training, adding lean muscle tissue. Motivated about it all.

Posted on May 30, 2014 at 8:09am 1 Comment

As we move forward in our life and work, we discover those areas and activities where we are most energized and experience the greatest joy.

Take a look at the graphic I put together on the right … the golden arrow is a pathway – our quest to move towards our destiny with accuracy.

The line represents our exploring and experiencing different things in our questing. As we intersect with our destined pathway, we enjoy our highest energy and sense of purpose.

Hey, Brian, thanks for posting on 48days.net. 
The forums are specifically a place to ask questions and get advice from folks. I'm assuming your post is looking for guidance somewhere, but since you're not asking for anything and just leaving a link to your website, we consider it spam.
To avoid being deleted in the future, please remember the forums are a place to ask honest questions and get guidance from your peers. If everyone was doing that, the forums would be an awfully boring place, filled with links to member's websites.

I'd love to see a blog post here from you, perhaps expanding on something already on your website.

Thanks,
Justin Lukasavige

Hey Brian,

You are so welcome. Enjoy the site--it's powerful!

As an FYI, one of the most powerful things about 48Days.NET is the many Groups. You can hit the ‘Groups’ tab above and search for anything you are interested in. I happen to lead a couple of groups here for folks interested in writing or speaking. Not sure if you have interest in those areas, but if so, I’d be honored to offer what I can and include you in our discussions. In fact, I'd love to have you jump into the discussion. The more voices, the more we all learn.

Here are the links to these two groups:
* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Wishing you REAL Success...

Live It Forward,
Kent Julian
