OMM12: Walking dead, testing the impossible, neck strength

With the holiday season coming to a close, here’s what’s on my mind right now:

Testing the “impossible”: 17 questions that changed my life

Whether or not you agree with Tim Ferriss’ methods, it’s always interesting to watch someone trace the steps they took leading to where they are today. With the new year just starting I find myself in a reflective mood, and a few questions on this list have definitely proved thought provoking for me.

Testing The “Impossible”: 17 Questions That Changed My Life

Tools of Titans


I’ve never agreed with the idea that emulating the habits of those deemed successful is a ticket to “success”. While I have no evidence for this, I feel that many of the people who are considered successful didn’t chase success as status or an end-point as many people try to do today. Despite this, I’m still fascinated by the tools and tactics used by others, and this book is full of them. Amazon | Ibooks

What I’m watching

fear-the-walking-dead-season-2-posterI religiously follow one, and only one, TV show – “The Walking Dead”. With the mid-season finale come and gone, that leaves me working my way through season 2 of “Fear the Walking Dead”. I wouldn’t rank it up there with the original, but it is definitely filling that gaping Walking Dead void until the show picks up after the mid season break. Amazon | iTunes

That’s it for me. I hope you all had a great holiday season and will have a great new year!
