Meditation : Part 1 - Deepstash

Meditation : Part 1

  • Just sit down, close your eyes, adjust in a comfortable position, whatever happens, happens. If you think, you think. If you don't think, you don't think. Don't put effort into it. Don't put effort against it.
  • When we grow up, it's all this stuff happening to you in your life and some of it you're processing some of it you're absorbing and some of it you should probably think a little bit more about and work through but you don't have time so it gets buried in you and it's all these preferences and judgements and unresolved situations and issues.......

  • Don't make a lot of desires at once.
  • Pick your one overwhelming desire. It's okay to suffer over that one but on all the others, let them go so you can be calm and peaceful and relaxed and then you'll perform a better job most people.

Retirement is not being 65 years old sitting in a nursing home collecting a retirement cheque. Retirement is when you stop sacrificing today for some imaginary tomorrow.

So how do you get there :

  • One is you can have so much money saved up that just your passive income off of that without your having to lift a finger covers your burn rate.
  • Second is you just drive your burn rate down to zero. Basically you become a monk.
  • Third is you're doing something you love and you enjoy it so much that now it's not about the money anymore.

  • ..And it's like your email inbox piling up email after email that's not answered going back years and then when you sit down, those emails start coming back at you.
  • It's a self therapy, you just have to sit there as those emails go through one by one and you work through each of them until you get to the magical inbox zero and there comes a day when you sit down, you realize the only things you're thinking about are the things that happened yesterday because you've processed everything else, not necessarily even resolved it, but at least listened to yourself. And that's when Meditation Starts.

Warren Buffett drinks about six coca-cola's a day and eats mostly McDonald's and he's still perfectly fine. Maybe him enjoying that junk food and that Coke pleasing his mind is better than him just eating wheatgrass shots and beaver salads and just being super worked up about everything.

Specialization is for Insects

You have one life. We tend to define people by a few narrow identities, but humans are broader then that. 

We are creators, parents, partners etc. Putting people in boxes goes against human nature.

The path to success is to find a way to automate your uniqueness. "Productise" is about leverage and "Yourself" is about accountability.

If you’re looking toward getting wealthy, you should ask yourself:

  • “Is this authentic to me? Is it myself that I am projecting?”
  • And then .. “Am I productising it? Am I scaling it? Am I scaling with labor or with capital or with code or with media?”

  • Seek wealth not money or Status - Status and money is zero-sum game but creating wealth is not zero-sum game. Wealth is having assets that make money while you sleep.
  • You’ll get rich by giving society what it wants but doesn’t know yet how to get, at scale.
  • All the returns in life be it wealth, relationships, knowledge (should) compounds over time.
  • Don’t upgrade your lifestyle right after or frequently after increasing income.
