I've been getting rid of all the foods that keep me from peak performance—not just physically but emotionally and mentally. It's not an easy process but the payoff is huge. A simple rule: foods that lead to craving are usually not good.

The endless craving for novelty isn't just a digital hang up. I do the same thing with books. Others do it with food. Some people are into axe throwing this week. There's a glut of novelty everywhere now. And it never satisfies.

Mostly no. It was just peaceful not to be hunting. But at one point I got frustrated doing something and immediately afterward had a little craving for something newsy to opiate the bad feeling.

Took a novelty sabbath yesterday. No consuming anything new. So no news, no feeds but also no reading, watching or listening to anything new. The calm was strange. I didn't realize just how wired my nervous system is to seeking novelty—on+offline. Always hunting never resting

"It's a lot easier to get angry at a tweet than it is to think about it. And the faster you get through this tweet, the faster you can get on to the next one, and the next one."

At the Apple store. It's junky in here: cheap foam core signs as you walk in, tangles of security cables everywhere, desperate looking ads. The shine is gone.

We’re drowning in information. All of us. And when someone is drowning they don’t have the luxury of being reasonable. Actually people who are drowning can be quite dangerous.

At a 5th century council of the Church, bishops got into a fist fight over whether Christ was God or human.

The more time all of us spend in a never ending electronic recess, the more intolerable participating in anything that resembles congress is going to become.

so 'micromastery' is the new 'artisanal' ... a word that people use to try to make the ordinary feel extraordinary. But that artisanal pretzel is just a pretzel. And you're not working on a micromastery, you're just learning how to fry an egg.

If your religion believes in a chosen people, you're stuck in the Iron Age. Time to update to a 21st century operating system.

If your tribe believes it has a monopoly on truth and goodness, you're stuck in the Iron Age. Time to abandon the ritual sacrifices and update to a 21st century operating system.

500 acres of monocropped corn is not farm. it's a factory without a roof.

The most outrageous conspiracy theory is that powerful people don't conspire.
