BibliOBSESSED | Emails to make you smarter

Hey, there.
Here’s your new favorite Friday email and some good stuff I read (and watched and listened to) for you, like:
#1 - An easy way to overcome fear and take more risks.
#2 - A quote about how to keep the main thing the main thing.
#3 - How to achieve happiness by playing the Matrix—not the Keanu Reeves kind. (Did you actually like that movie? I’m starting to question your judgment.)
#4 - A quote about why you should fail spectacularly (I’m actively encouraging it).
Let’s begin.

An easy way to overcome risk aversion (fear-setting)
(Prefer the full article? Read it here.)
Here’s a great piece of insight on how to overcome risk aversion by Tim Ferriss in an interview he did with Marie Forleo.
(In short, if you want to overcome your fears and/or determine if you should take a particular risk, you’ll want to listen to this.)
Jump to about 39:31-43:05.
Tim Ferriss Interview: How to Overcome Fear, Practice Self Love & Build a Writing Routine
What's the most important thing? (And how to prioritize it.)
“If you ask me, I’d say the main thing to keeping the main thing the main thing is reminding yourself as often as you can of where the most joy will come from.”
Quote by Mike Dooley in his “Notes from the Universe”
An easier way to achieve happiness? (Playing the Matrix.)
(Prefer the full article? Read it here.)
Here’s a great strategy for achieving happiness in life from Mike Dooley.
(Sorry, you’ll have to read the full one-pager on this one to understand—way too much for a one-paragrapher, but it’s totally worth it … and it’ll make this cryptic, Matrix-y chart make sense.)

(Are you skipping ahead?! It’s less than six minutes. Seriously. Read the one-pager so that you know how to be happier in life!)
Fail spectacularly.
Safety is the enemy of success. Be proud of your mistakes. Take a risk. Fail spectacularly. And then go out and fail more.

That’s it for this issue, but if you’re still feeling studious, dive in to the full Marie TV episode above and/or pick up a copy of Mike Dooley’s book below.
