LIFESTYLE TIP:
FORGET MEDITATING, GO SWIMMING!

Escape the laptop. Go for a dip.💦
(Watch out for the iMermaid though. They’ll get you.)

Meditation is nice concept. But while it can achieve a lot mentally, it’s not a form of physical exercise and some people struggle to sit still and immerse themselves. Running is great but it’s hard on your body and it’s often difficult to escape traffic or crowds especially if you’re living in a city.

Enter: swimming.

What Ryan Holiday
describes as an immersive transcendent experience akin to meditation.

The key benefits to swimming:

  • It is one of the lowest impact forms of exercise while still working the whole body.
  • The repetition helps to relax and reduce yourself into a calm state.
  • You’re free from distraction.
  • It’s a time to think, reflect or even problem solve.
  • All you need is a local pool, lake, river, ocean or a natural spring.

This article may be a little more poetic than it needs to be, but an interesting read all the same for those interested in a way to unwind. 😇

JACK MA:
WHY THERE WILL ALWAYS BE OPPORTUNITIES.

Jack Ma’s exposure to regular rejection
made him bullet-proof and fearless.🛡
Jack Ma knows a thing or two about overcoming challenges. He built his online Alibaba empire on the challenge to connect small Chinese businesses with the rest of the world.

Ma unequivocally believes big opportunities lay in solving big challenges. And there will always be problems that need solving.

EXPENSIVE APP ALERT:
PORSCHE PASSPORT

CRYPTOWATCH:
BITCOIN REAL ESTATE & A 50,000% RETURN

Y’all got anymore of them bitcoins? 💰 💰
The first ever single-family home sale in Texas involving bitcoin was announced last month, and now Californian land and Manhattan condos are next on the list as bitcoin is slowly creeping its way into real estate in the US.

The president of New York City’s Magnum Real Estate Group has confirmed they’ll adapt
to the enquiries, especially from overseas buyers, over whether they accept cryptocurrency – they will also hold onto their bitcoin rather than exchange it to USD.

  • Elsewhere, in Dubai the first major development is underway where you can buy one of the 150 apartments in bitcoin. 30 BTC is enough to score you a studio.

 

  • Plus Julian Assange has thanked the US Government for forcing Wikileaks into buying bitcoin in 2010, as he’s enjoyed a tasty 50,000% return. That’s $472 million IF they plunged all of their $943k earnings from Dec 2010. Before they received $0 in Jan 2011 when they were blocked from receiving bank payments.

 

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
ALBERT EINSTEIN

Problem solving is one of the most important skillsets of an entrepreneur.💡

The ability to ‘think outside the box’ is what separates the men from the boys. A problem is a welcomed challenge.

A chance to step back and review a particular project. But we must get creative and adjust our thinking to move forward. 🙏
