Terrible Sundays


Sunday.

Terrible Sundays…

Many people spend their lives sitting on their shabby couch, wearing dinosaur slippers, watching TV as if it’s going to give them the key to existence.

And Sundays are one of those days where this picture is too common…

If that’s your case, keep reading because today’s email will interest you.

So put down the remote, grab a pen and paper, and take note because this is important.

And if not… never mind, keep reading, there is always something you can learn… if you have that mindset, you’re unstoppable.

​

Look. If you’ve been in this newsletter for a while, you know that I love History.

Well… probably you also know that I like stoicism.

​

The Stoics were guys wearing white togues, I guess, from ancient Greece and Rome that had everything figured out…

Everything.

How to live the best life possible. How to deal with life successfully.

The summary of thir method is: “Live according to nature.”

Translated into Christian… or English or… “live according to virtue.”

​

OK… Ancient bullsh*t, I know… but it works.

​

Imagine that it’s Monday morning, and you start thinking:

​

How can I lead a good and virtuous life?

How can I control my emotional impulses?

What’s the meaning of this whole circus?

How do I deal with the little problems that always come up?

How on earth do I make decisions without messing up every time?

What do I do to avoid wanting to strangle my boss and my mother-in-law?

What do I do to refrain myself of crucifying politicians?

​

Well, here you are a kind of magic formula… it’s not signing up for yoga, meditation classes or filling your fridge with tofu and complements.

​

First, you have to accept that life is chaotic and it will always be that way.

Do you remember what I was saying about inputs the other day?

Yes, that’s it.

​

You can’t control if it rains or if your neighbor decides to drill at seven in the morning or do a party until 3:00am.

​

What you can control is how you react to all that.

​

The Stoics called it "ataraxia," which is like having a zen mind in the middle of the apocalypse.

​

But how do you reach that state of enlightenment?

​

Every day you should have a clear roadmap.

A plan to focus your day.

How to handle that coworker who always gets on your nerves. Or your boss. Or your client. Or your subbies.

​

And… how to make decisions that bring you closer to your goals.

​

This is very personal for each person, of course…

​

In my case, it’s all about freedom.

Freedom of options.

Freedom of money.

Freedom of countries.

Freedom of politics.

Freedom of paychecks.

​

A few passports and residences around the world, a few properties producing money, a few business in several countries, a few consultancy practices… training, reading, doing, inputs, inputs, inputs… and the tranquillity that gives you to know that you have a method.

​

If you are interested in enlightenment and freedom, I give you a few options below.

Shut up and learn There is one entrepreneur that I admire enormously. I even have unconditional devotion. And, it’s not Elon Musk. I like Elon. I know about his story. But you never know all the story for real. He may be just born with a flower and a four-leaf clover in the ass and be the luckiest guy ever. You never know for real… My favourite entrepreneur though is my brother. I know very well his story. Everything. Perfectly, his humble origins… Not the ones of a bio-book, but the real...

People with common sense have two ways of becoming millionaires with minimum risk. One Spend 30-40 years of your life working hard, saving, and investing to retire rich at 65-70. If that’s your plan, I wish you luck. That plan requires a lot of time and is risky: If you don’t know how to invest well, the plan is screwed. If the stock market has 10 bad years, the plan is screwed. If you are unemployed for several years, the plan is screwed. If you get sick, the plan is screwed. If you die...

Along the week, I’m offered serval investments. Start ups, equity in consolidated mid size companies, new real estate developments, or simply houses/buildings to buy. People complicate themselves too much. And then, you have those perfectionists… The brand colors need to “transmit / reflect your values”. The font of your web should be… Your blog needs to be optimized for SEO Add a AI chat bot for customers… Etc. etc. etc. 99% bullshit. If you’re interested in investing or creating any...
