Business: Wrote 1 page, 500 words for my web page. Signing up as an affiliate for a popular product in a health niche. Bought a professional quality microphone off ebay to do voice recording, will use it to do video marketing on youtube.
Media: watched 3 episodes of Honey And Clover (15/25 episodes). Too much beta-ness in the storyline but it’s expected from an anime series. The alpha in the anime is Morita who follows his ambition and doesn’t have social awkardness – and surprise (sarcasm) Hagu chan, the petite 18 years old falls in love with him instead of the foreveralone beta male – I forgot his name. If anything, the anime demonstrates that love is mostly self hypothesis – the pondering, the fantasies, the worries. Almost sounds like a woman romance novel.
When it comes to dating – or anything else in life – it should be SIMPLE.
“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, in the expert’s mind there are few.”
– Shunryu Suzuki
“Before I learned the art, a punch was just a punch, and a kick, just a kick.
After I learned the art, a punch was no longer a punch, a kick, no longer a kick.
Now that I understand the art, a punch is just a punch and a kick is just a kick.”
– Bruce Lee
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”
– Leonardo de Vinci
“Our lives are frittered away by detail; simplify, simplify.”
– Henry David Thoreau
Now that I think of it, we revere monks for the simpliest act: sitting around and meditating. Heh.
Side tangent: The mind games women employ is merely filtering out beta males. What seems to be a complicated and hazy “mind game” – the un-returned phone calls, the test for jealously, the “can you buy me a drink” gambit – is utterly simple underneath.
