Re: anesde's journal

What I "do" professionally since 2016 is 3d visualization, mostly for engineering type applications. Archviz but for technical nerdy stuff - my value proposition is "I make videos about stuff that's difficult to explain with just words or simple charts and diagrams." Most of my w...

Re: The Education of Axel Heyst

Found this while studying Scrum: the Shuhari model of mastery. Shu: the forms and rules. Ha: start to innovate. Ri: Unhindered creativity. I like that it's very compact, intuitive, and speaks directly to the dynamic of "learn the numbers to forget the numbers" (Waitzkin, The Art of Learnin...

Re: White Belt's Military Journey to FI

If the goal is environmental, can't you have greater impact spending intentionally? Maybe, but the counterargument is that you can also look beyond your self-boundary and notice that if you spend $100 on an ethical/green jacket or local food, lets say, the person you pay that money to might go spen...

Re: "Wear it out" promise

That is super interesting. The slings climbers use to stay attached to the wall are made out of Dyneema these days. Took a while to get used to how thin they are, but apparently they'll hold up a truck. I wonder garments of the stuff holds up to smell - I've gone all natural fabrics because anything...

Hey anesde, I also am always excited to see an update in your journal. Such a cool journey you've been on, and I really appreciate the depth of introspection that you share with us.

Re: ERE Mastermind Group

Hey seanconn! I should have mentioned this - the mastermind group is "full", as we've decided to cap it at 8. That said, I'd be very happy to help support the spin up of a second mastermind group, if there are enough folks interested.

Re: The Education of Axel Heyst

Ha totally, but I think where I'm at is discovering that in the past I mostly only *intellectually* wanted to be able to hit 40'ers, as in, I liked the idea of it, but I didn't actually really want it. It wasn't a deep desire, it was just some shit that looked cool on youtube, all my friends were in...

Re: Emergence of the Literature of Climate Change

New Yorker article about the genre of climate change memoir. These authors have seen enough catastrophe to know how bleak the outlook really is, and are wary of selling the reader false hope or tired platitudes. Their books are not injunctions to act but interrogations of the rift between what we k...

Re: The Education of Axel Heyst

@mF - thanks for the prompt! I think it's good to do something like that pretty regularly. Looking back over all the times I've done exercises like that, it's very telling what elements of the Vision stay constant, and what things come and go. For example, in my 20s, my visions always included the d...

Re: The Education of Axel Heyst

Well, it should be pointed out that many of my desired outcomes are systems and habits, aka infinite games. Most of my finite "achievable goal" desired outcomes have to do with arranging my environment in an optimal way to support my infinite games. e.g. "buy land and build strawbale ...
