Derek Sivers: Farnam Street Cast

Why settle for Reality? nothing is real anyway

choose the perspective that gets you to take action

how do you know what action?

need a destination

how to find destination? you’ll know when it hits you

Directives - actions that can encode within them so much wisdom

  • ie eat this, not here’s 500 pages of nutrition

create a directives database as part of knowledge lab to organize some of this stuf

  • create - that’s a directive that encompasses so much about what makes us happy, puts us in flow, increases value to world that can be monetized, etc

life doesn’t have inherent meaning. you make it up. it’s just a different perspectice

meaning is not a fact
