Stop Being Lazy: 17 Lifehacks for Beating Chronic Laziness

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Laziness
2017 Update: Laziness is a symptom of a fundamental lack of willpower. 
Willpower isn't a very sexy subject (although I tried to make it one...) but willpower is the ultimate lifehack because if you have willpower you get to have anything else you desire.

  • If you don't have willpower, you probably don't realize how important it is to your happiness.
  • If you don't have willpower, you won't practice the hard habits you need to practice to acquire more willpower.
  • If you don't have willpower, you'll continually fail to meet your goals and you'll live a life of quiet desperation.
  • If you don't have willpower, you can't get it by reading self help books or listening to inspiring podcasts. Sorry!

Smart drugs give you willpowerFast. 25-45 minutes after consumption the Nootropic agents will cross your blood brain barrier boosting the neurotransmitters Serotonin, Dopamine and ACh which will noticeably improve your self control for 4-6 hours.
After trying over 70 different smart drugs, I found one that I call the Discipline Molecule; more than any other Nootropic I've tried, I just do 100% of what I know I should be doing when I'm on this drugClick here to get a detailed report on this smart drug and some infotaining videos analyzing what human studies are saying about the Discipline Molecule.

I think that the human capacity for invention, creativity, collaboration and generosity multiplied by the steep growth curves in technology have a real chance in the next 50 years of eradicating poverty, war, hunger, disease, environmental issues, lack of education, even aging and death.

There's also a good chance that 50 years from now we will have all the same problems, except multiplied by another two billion humans. The greatest variable in this is laziness and indifference.

complicated-problem-lazinessAs much as human beings are creative and inventive we have a boundless capacity for laziness and indifference. If we can overcome these flaws in our psychology 50 years from now we will see these demons vanquished from the world.

By the End of this Article...

Laziness is a complicated problem that we face as individuals. This article will present actionable solutions for beating laziness in yourself and minimizing it in the organizations and communities to which you contribute. These solutions will go way beyond the generic platitudes about hard work, motivation and laziness.

I Did Business with Insane People: 4 Stories of Psychopathy, Ego & Ambition

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

The word insane is drastically over used, for everything from mild moodiness and irritability to emotional changes. That's not what this article is about, these are four stories of times I did business with people who were unwell psychologically.

Sometimes I ask myself whether it's a degree of insanity within myself that has attracted these people and circumstances or whether it's just a matter of dumb luck that I've been quite intimately ensconced in business 4 separate times with people varying from unstable addicts to genuinely demented... I'm leaning more towards the former than the latter. In addition to being entertaining I hope that these stories can educate you on how to identify the tale-tale signs of insanity in the charming, persuasive people you are considering doing business with.

Cognitive Traps of Happiness: 4 Lifehacks for Well-Being

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

In the TED Talk below Dr. Daniel Kahneman, Inventor of Behavioral Economics, explains how our happiness is determined and sometimes distorted by what he describes as our two selves.

Actionable Take-Aways

The Way a Story EndsvacationIt's very important that we are conscious of the way a story ends in our memories. A bad ending can make our Remembering Self permanently unhappy about an otherwise very happy experience. Therefor it's essential to recognize and compartmentalize a negative ending to what's going to be a memory narrative.

A personal experience: This year I took the coolest vacations of my life: While traveling from Central to South America, I spent 4 days in the surreal San Blas Islands (in between Panama and Colombia), it was a time of relaxation on sunny beaches, meeting the locals of the islands (and even learning a little of their language), eating great food, drinking fine wine and rum by bonfires, making new friends and snorkeling in clear waters. However it ended with two fairly disastrous events: 1) At the border crossing my passport was almost ruined by water damage 2) Our first night in Colombia we got robbed.
When these two negative events happened I made a conscious decision to categorize them as simply part of the risks of travel, and not include them in my mental narrative of the San Blas Islands vacation.

Memory Anticipation Feedback Loops - Our Remembering Self is the one in charge of making decisions, it makes decisions based upon future anticipated memories. We derive a lot of happiness from these 'self-fulfilling prophesies', so if there's a decision you need to make, imagine yourself being happy in the future reflecting on the decision.

Spend Time with People You Like - and who make you feel good about yourself. It's the most significant measurable factor of happiness.

Make it to $60K - It's turns out money does buy happiness, but the happiness-to-income correlation flattens out at $60K a year for Americans and other comparable countries. So do whatever it takes to get your income to $60K yearly but after that focus on other areas of your life to maximize happiness.

Thought Experiment:

At the end of a vacation all your pictures are going to be destroyed and you will receive a drug that gives you amnesia. All your memories of the vacation are going to be destroyed. Would you choose the same activities?

If so then it illustrates a significant difference between the way your Remembering Self and your Experiencing Self perceives happiness.

Inception in Real Life: 24 Lifehacks for Lucid Dreaming

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

Lifehacking Lucid DreamingIn the film Inception, a team of espionage agents are highly compensated by multi-nationals to manipulate people through their dreams. Lucid Dreaming is the closest thing outside of the silver screen to this. It's not hyperbole when I say that lucid dreaming can and will make your REM sleeping hours the most vividly exciting part of your day. A few examples of my highly vivid and memorable experiences:

  • Being a dictator of an underwater society.
  • Falling through the center of the earth and experiencing zero gravity.
  • Escaping from a version of Hell that would make any video game designer jealous.
  • Epic Matrix-esque Kung Fu battles with swords, light sabers and machine guns.
  • Hanging out on luxury yacht that would make Jay-Z proud.
  • Making love to Lara Croft from Tomb Raider.
  • Being attacked by a giant killer manta ray in the ocean.
  • Rock climbing caverns with family.
  • Skydiving with Neil Patrick Harris, after hitting on hot German girls (yes, I know he's gay, I'm obviously a big fan of Barney Stinson).
  • Driving incredibly irresponsibly in high performance cars.
  • Interacting with loved ones who passed away years ago.
  • Personal consultations with Winston Churchill.
  • Fighting giant bugs, Starship Troopers style!
  • Speed dating grandmas.

This article will present methodologies for maximizing the entertainment value and personal development benefits from dreaming.

Lucid Dreaming is my 'coolest' lifehack. Why? It takes what is usually unproductive, forgetful time and turns it into world class entertaining adventures and opportunities for introspection. It really does also have some cross over benefits to real life personal development (explained below). While there's a few products that enhance it, Lucid Dreaming is free.

You face a red pill/blue pill moment dear reader, a dream life of adventure is not for everyone, so you may want stop reading NOW before being sucked into this surreal world of danger, sex, misbehaving physics and confusing conversations with your unconscious.

Gamify Your Reality: Situational Awareness, Body Language & 'Being Present'

By Jonathan Roseland  Connect    

In the world of personal development 'be present' is the new 'be confident'

Situational Awareness Body Language Being Present

You hear 'be present' repeated by everyone from self help gurus, yoga instructors, public speaking coaches to pickup artists and comedians. Meditation, Yoga, Tai Chi, Tantric practice and even Dual N-Back training can help you practice being present but this article is going to focus on the intersection of being present, body language and situational awareness and how they can be practiced by gamifying your reality.

On a simple level, 'be present' means that your thoughts are focused on the here and now as opposed to in the past or future.

The Problem: If you spend the majority of your mental energy planning for the future or analyzing the past, it's difficult to transition to focusing on the present. While planning for the future and analyzing the past are very important, I'm going to do a bad job of executing on future goals or more importantly enjoying the life I'm working so damn hard for or if my mind is stuck in the past or future. Have you ever found that you couldn't stop worrying about something that happened at work or thinking about the future when you should have been enjoying yourself with friends or family? This is a failure in being present. I'm also going to do a bad job at maintaining high situational awareness if my mind is perpetually pondering the past or future.

Like most ambitious, busy lifehackers my day to day thoughts are probably focused:

  • Future 50%
  • Present 20%
  • Past 30%
