Well look what made it’s way into my office this morning. A sampler of Upgraded Self stuff: I’ve been following Dave Asprey aka The Bulletproof Executive for some time, and just caught a few days worth of him over on CreativeLive last week  (along with the biggest crowd I’ve ever seen over there!) where he offered up a coupon code for all of his stuff. I finally pulled the trigger on an order, grabbing the following: Bulletproof® Upgraded™ MCT Oil Bulletproof® Upgraded™ Vanilla Get Bulletproof™ Upgraded™ Cacao Butter Get Bulletproof™ Upgraded™ Chocolate Powder Stay tuned for my thoughts on...

Reading Today: Non-Conformist Kids

She argues, convincingly to this reader, that modern living has stripped itself of many opportunities to experience such a state. For a chance to take refuge from ordinary life. A place exempt from life’s customs, free to, well, play. And that such play is necessary for a well-lived life. Much of the book wanders down a variety of paths in search of the experience of such deep play. Whether reaching for that state via an intense, potentially deadly experience like climbing Everest, simply losing yourself in a leisurely bike ride, or, say, sharing...
