1. A quote I’m resonating with this week
This week’s quote comes from the amazing Helen Keller. As well as being an author, political activist, and lecturer. Supported by a wonderful mentor (Anne Sullivan), Helen overcame extraordinary obstacles to become the first deaf-blind person to earn a bachelor of arts degree.
“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”
2. Something I’m really excited to be part of
My dear friend and colleague Terry Rubentstein (founder of a non-profit, The Innate Health Centre) has organised a groundbreaking series of online masterclasses aimed at university students. I’ve found that when people get impacted by the principles behind clarity, one of the first things they say is “Why isn’t this taught in schools?” Terry is making it happen, and I’m excited to be delivering two of the masterclasses. University students need this understanding more than ever, so if you are one (or if you know one), make sure and let them know so they don’t miss out.

3. This week’s glimpse of the future
You probably passed at least 5 cyborgs on the way to work today, and didn’t even notice. Don’t believe me? Check out this article from Singularity Hub https://singularityhub.com/2017/08/04/the-age-of-cyborgs-has-arrived/amp/
4. A subject I’m passionate about
You may already know that I encourage all my female friends to take a self-defence course. What you may not know is how I got interested in this in the first place. Many years ago, I read a fascinating and life-altering book by Gavin de Becker called The Gift of Fear. It’s a wonderful book (highly recommend) that’s been read by millions of people. De Becker provides personal protection services to half the stars in Hollywood plus numerous companies. His work has sparked many of my own insights and realisations, so I was delighted to see that he was a guest on a recent episode of Sam Harris’ podcast. You can listen to it here (and I strongly suggest you do) https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/waking-up-with-sam-harris/id733163012?mt=2&i=1000390718567
5. This week’s 3-minute miracle
I’ve been writing this week’s TTE while listening to the seminal Grateful Dead album, American Beauty. My favourite song off the album is Friend of the Devil and it’s marvellous. Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XacvydVrhuI
One last thing: I’m doing one of my experiments & it starts in 9 days.
I’m researching something new, and I’m looking for the right group of people to take part in it. Here’s how you’ll know if you’re right for my experiment (and vice-versa):
– You are currently in full-time employment, but…
– You want to transition from your job to something more fulfilling and “on-purpose”
– You sense that it’ll probably take 1-2 years to complete the transition, but…
– Your goal hasn’t been getting much closer; it seems to stay the same distance away
– You want to make progress, but lack clarity about either the ‘what’ or the ‘how’, and…
– You know that if you were clear on those, with a solid plan, you’d do what it takes to make it happen, and…
– You’ve been thinking about it for long enough, and you’re ready to do something about it NOW
If that’s you, email me at email@example.com and change the subject line to “Project Jupiter” so I know what it’s in relation to. I’m going to be choosing people over the next week.
That’s it for this week!
