It’s been a busy week; I’ve been a busy boy! And there are a few changes going on around the studio.
The first of which is, I’m excited to announce I’ve changed the name of the newsletter to the Meditate or Die newsletter, to coincide with the book I am writing of the same name.
I’ve also been working on a membership area for those interested in going deeper, learning more, and implementing what I teach, in the Meditate or Die philosophy, and the membership will be called Meditate or Die Insiders.
I will continue to write on topics such as:
- Practical strategies for making your day-to-day work more meaningful.
- The nature of human attention and flow-state.
- Insights from cognitive science we can use to change our behavior.
- Practical techniques to enhance creativity.
- Emotional intelligence and self-awareness as learnable skills.
- The role of entrepreneurship in the future of work.
- What personal growth looks like when thought of as “philosophy as practice.”
- Trends in tech and culture and how they impact self-development.
- Exploring the theories of ethics, aesthetics, epistemology, and metaphysics as they relate to self-development.
And 90% of this content will continue to be free.
For the 10% of people interested in going deeper, there will be the Meditate or Die Insiders Membership with practical guides, workshops, and more.
What is Meditate or Die Insiders?
The Meditate or Die Insiders is a subscription-based member area of the website. Inside (no pun intended) you’ll find in-depth articles on self-development, exclusive members-only videos, implementation guides, online workshops, and more.
What does a membership include?
When you become an Insider you receive access to:
- Members-only articles.
- Article commentaries – video & mp3.
- Members-only newsletter.
- Monthly Q&A videos.
- Exclusive online workshops.
- Members-only implementation self-development guides.
- And more…
The subscription is $8 p/month but if you keep reading…I will show you how you can get access for free!
So why the name “Meditate or Die Insiders?”
As I mentioned above the phrase Meditate or Die, is the title of my upcoming book, which should be available next year, and full of stories like – How to Bend Like a Piece of Wood.
While the phrase “insiders” indicates an orientation to life, born of the understanding of the strategies that lead to living a good life, start and end inside oneself.
That is to say, our mind, and our psychology, is the foundational element in the topics of self-development, personal development, and self-improvement, and through deepening one’s understanding of these topics we are in fact gifting ourselves with the wisdom of eudemonia.
But none of us can make this vision a reality alone. We need a tribe with a shared purpose to connect and collaborate with, in order for this knowledge to be unveiled.
I see my role as one of teasing out the seeds of insight by way of thought pieces, implementation guides, case studies, experiments, videos, deep-dive articles, etc., to help you identify and access new sources of wisdom, and help you implement these into your own life.
If you enjoy mind-bending ideas on topics such as those listed above, as well as practical guides to help you implement these ideas; if you are tired of the same old endlessly repeated “self-help” BS, and you believe that going inside can be a source of profound personal growth, you’ll feel right at home inside the membership.
p.s. Normal programming will continue next week.
