3 MINUTE MONDAY Hi friend, I’ve just finished my first ever live tour around the UK & Ireland. One of the most surreal experiences I’ve ever had. So terrifying and exciting and beautiful. This whole week felt like a dream. Thank you to everyone who came out, seeing thousands of you in the flesh is very different to seeing play counts on Spotify. Other exciting news - we’re entirely sold out of Neutonic everywhere, in the UK & US. That stock was supposed to last until Christmas - whoops. But... This Thursday we are launching a brand new Neutonic flavour and it’s absolute dynamite. So so so insanely good. Both mine & James’ favourite flavour. I canot wait for you to try this one. Next day delivery on Amazon Prime in UK & US, so you can order Thursday and drink it Friday. Anyway, this week I’ve been thinking about how our desires get hijacked. “It’s one thing to get what you want. But it’s another thing to want what’s worth getting.” — Shane Parrish This is the danger of not spending time working out what you want to want. Your life should be lived by design, not default. Kyle Eschenroeder explains it beautifully… Blindly following your desires makes you a slave to your impulses — slave to the assumptions of those around you, the advertisements you’re exposed to, and the confused chemical signals of your body. If we don’t pause and ask ourselves what we want to want, we will spend our lives focused on unhealthy aims defined for us by others and the worst parts of ourselves. We will pass these bad assumptions about life onto our children and loved ones. We will reinforce these boring, desperate defaults in everyone we encounter. To achieve freedom we must be able to think for ourselves. If we don’t cut to the core and program our wants (our desires) then our best-case scenario is to be a successful, rich, or famous slave. If we never peer into our programming then we may end up being the cleverest rat in the room, but that’s hardly worth celebrating. In short - your default factory settings are absolute rubbish. Do not follow them. People who do will never actualise their potential, either for happiness or success. “They do not what they intended but what they happen to run across” — Seneca Our desires define our own paths of least resistance. Through deliberate training that at first feels tedious, we can eventually arrive at a point where we actually want what we want to want. Your life should be lived by design, not default.
