I’ve had a brief but severe cold (I’m going to post about being sick soon), and a few technical problems last week, so I’m behind on blog posts here, but I wanted to give you at least a little something before the next slew of articles get posted.

So today, a few random things:

1. Trump is now our president. Did you see any Democrats in power seriously attempt to stop him becoming president? Did you see any prominent left-wingers move out of the United States? Did you see any left-wing states secede from the union?

I didn’t.

Then what does that say about the people who said, threatened, pleaded for, or expected any of these things?

2. Pink Firefly and I just saw the movie Split. YOU MUST GO SEE THIS and you CAN’T READ ANYTHING ABOUT IT before you see it. I’m serious; you will ruin the entire movie if you read anything. It has the most exciting twist ending of any move in the last 15 years… but only if you really like movies like I do. Firefly is a normal human being so she didn’t understand the ending and was actually a little disappointment in it, even after I explained it to her (though she liked the movie). But! If you’re a movie nerd/addict like me, you must go see Split. Right now. And those of you who have already seen it, no spoilers in the comments!

Just trust me on this. Go.

3. Last year was only the second year in my life where I made more money, actually way more money, than I planned on. I always set an income goal for the year, and usually either fail to meet it, or just barely hit it. Last year blew everything away in terms of both my goals and expectations. I’m still a little surprised.

I say this not to brag (even though I am), but to show you what’s possible when you stop farting around and work hard for a few years. Since turning 41 I’ve really upped my game in terms of my businesses and work focus. It’s been almost four years now, and 2016 was definitely one of the payoffs. Hopefully I’ll have several more years of this before my focus shifts in 2024.

This kind of thing can happen to you too, but you’ve got to stop fucking around, get to work, and stay focused for a few years.

4. Somewhat related to that, I have a few radical changes in store for this blog. Don’t worry; they are all changes most of you have asked for. I was going to change this blog around last year but decided against it. Now I’ve got another big project that’s coming (can’t talk about it yet) that requires me to update and change this blog a little so it’s compatible with what’s coming.

More on this very soon. I’m going to go back to coughing now.

  1. Congratulations on your success!

    I have turned 40 this year and I’m obsessively focused on my entrepreneurship. No stellar results at the moment (heck, _no_ results at the moment) but I agree that you have to go all in if you expect it to be a big hit. Temporary imbalance in life seems to be the price to pay. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I have grown wary of Shyamalan movies. “The Village” was absurdly predictable (guessed the supposed “twist” in the first 5 minutes), “Signs” had an absurd twist, and there is another (won’t spoil) that can be immediately guessed if you know “And then there were none” by Agatha Christie. Nevertheless, his first two (famous) movies, Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, where quite good, so I’m heeding your advice here. We’ll see :^)

    BTW I’m sending you an email.

    Get well soon!

  2. Caleb, I’m curious. Lets say 3d printers are invented that can make stuff at the atomic level. How will that impact your life? Will you even bother to worry about money at that point? I know you will keep working, but perhaps on different ventures.

    Oh yes, his movies have SUCKED in the last several years. But Split is a return to form. Just watch all the way to the end it and you’ll see.

    You just said it. Even if I found myself in a world with unlimited free prosperity, I would still be working on some kind of project that I would be excited about.

  4. Now that Trump is president, we should file a whitehouse petition to address false rape allegations, which are increasing in frequency. Trump faced them himself during the election campaign. All we need is 100,000 signatures.

    You’re not going to get a more red pilled president in the history of the United States, especially one that has been also falsly accused of rape. Yeah he’s an Alpha 1.0 and fearless, but he’s a red pilled man and now’s our only shot at getting the biggest issues out before it’s too late and we revert to a blue pill mangina. I’m not American but I think someone should get the ball rolling with the whitehouse petition.

  5. 4. Somewhat related to that, I have a few radical changes in store for this blog.

    Are you going to do any book reviews in the future? I’d really be interested to see your views on “The Sovereign Individual” (which is the book that snapped all the european socialist SP out of my head) or any of Harry Browne’s books.

  6. Watched Split and had to look up what the ending was about. I’m sure my reaction to it was similar to your GF’s.
