French blogger Olivier Roland interviewed me in this 40-minute video about personal growth, polyphasic sleep, open relationships, and more:
One of my goals for 2017 is to go caffeine-free for the entire year. This includes having no coffee, espresso, tea (black, green, white), caffeinated soda, chocolate, cocoa, cacao, etc. Herbal tea that’s naturally caffeine-free is okay though.
I feel this is something I just don’t need in my life this year. My mind feels sharper, calmer, and more focused without it. 🙂
If you’re interested in building your own passive income streams (also called evergreen income), a good service to help you achieve that goal is Site Build-It (SBI). They’re currently running a 33% off special from now through January 6th at 12 noon Eastern time.
If you want to learn more about SBI and why I recommend them, see my SBI review.
Are people actually succeeding with this service? Yup. Here are some SBI case studies, showing how people have used it successfully in different niches. And here are tons of examples of successful SBI sites that you can visit for yourself if you want to see what people are creating with it.
Many readers use SBI to get started earning passive income, especially if they need help with the mindset of believing it’s possible. Then they often go off and explore other ways of generating passive income too. SBI has a money-back guarantee, so it’s easy to try it and see if it’s a good match for you.
I know you’ve done something recently that deserves some acknowledgement and appreciation, and you may have been wondering if it was going to pass by unnoticed, but you’re wrong about that. So speaking as a figment in your reality matrix on behalf of the matrix itself, I just want to congratulate you for your private victory. The matrix noticed what you did, it was awesome, and we all appreciate it tremendously!
Congrats… and please keep it up!
Author, Speaker, and Coach Michael Hyatt shared his top 5 business book recommendations for 2016.
Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World by Cal Newport sounds especially aligned with my priorities for 2017, and The Revenge of Analog: Real Things and Why They Matter by David Sax sounds fascinating, so I just bought copies of those.
If you’d like to prime your mind for goal achievement in the New Year, Learning Strategies is hosting a free audio streaming event this week to help you do that. It’s called the New Year Supercharger, and it’s already underway. The first two lessons are online now, so you can listen to them as soon as you register.
This series is based on six of Learning Strategies’ popular Paraliminals programs, which are 20-25 minute relaxing meditations that I’ve been using and recommending since 2006. They consistently put me into a deep and relaxing meditative state, which is great for positive self-programming.
Get free access to the New Year Supercharger, and enjoy! 🙂

Here’s an interesting article someone shared with me about how Wikipedia is being manipulated, especially when it comes to health-related articles:
I’ve run into evidence of this bias on multiple occasions, especially when I researched water fasting earlier this year. See for yourself by taking a look at Wikipedia’s water fasting entry. I think you’ll agree that it’s an absolute joke. It’s barely more than a screen’s worth of info and looks like it was written by someone who either knows nothing about water fasting or is just an all around idiot. The entry has a mere two sentences about the health effects of water fasting. Seriously? Half of the entry is about religion. There are only three references in the entry, one of which goes to Quackwatch, which isn’t even close to a credible or scientific source for health info. After all these years, this is Wikipedia’s summary of the knowledge we’ve accumulated from thousands of years of water fasting? Really?
In the past I’ve donated to support Wikipedia when they do their annual donation drive. Not this year. I do feel they do a provide a good service for the planet in many ways, and I’ve used their site a lot for research. But I find myself trusting them less with each passing year, especially when it comes to information that could affect my health and well-being (and by extension the health and well-being of my readers if I share such info). Wikipedia needs to do a better job of rooting out corruption and bias, especially in the health area. At the very least, their water fasting page should be filled with a lot more facts as well as links to scientific studies. If you know something about water fasting, see if you can fix that entry without having your changes rejected, as the article above suggests.
Earlier this year I completed a 17-day water fast without Wikipedia’s help, and I found it beneficial. It was easier than I expected. The summary blog post about my water fasting experience will give you a lot more info about water fasting than Wikipedia at present, and I’m just one guy who did this one time so far, able to share only from personal experience. Wikipedia’s entry on this topic should put my blog post to shame in terms of the facts and knowledge it provides, shouldn’t it?
Wikipedia, up your game.
