I do an exercise called “fear-setting” at least once a quarter, often once a month. It is the most powerful exercise I do.
Fear-setting has produced my biggest business and personal successes, as well as repeatedly helped me to avoid catastrophic mistakes.
I’m a little iffy on Tim Ferriss but this sounds like a helpful exercise.
In watching this I realized how helpful these kind of videos could be for prepping for an unknown ride — this bike lane had a *lot* of sand on it and I might not want to ride my road bike on it. But it would ruin the surprise of a new ride if you knew what was coming 🤷♀️
The male Anna’s hummingbird in our yard was going to town on the red flowering currant outside my living room window, so I was a little distracted from the video 😉 I had forgotten that last year I pushed my bike up to the window for springtime so I could watch the birds and insects and stuff, may be near time to shove the couch out of the way. Maybe after getting my handlebar tape rewrapped…
Exercise helps you learn and remember things better.
We learn with our entire central nervous system, for which the brain works as a kind of data processing centre.
Apparently curiosity does the trick too.
“Based on everything we know about the brain, two of the things that are really good for it are physical activity and novelty. A thing that’s very bad for it is chronic and perpetual stress.”
