thomas & bennett
via Thomas – I had a fun hour and 45 talking to Bennett about random stuff and recorded it for no particular reason—
4 min – i want to surround myself with people who do stuff
5 min – i have a lot of stuff to lay out.. the only reason i’m staying here is i’m 3/4 way through.. and i haven’t gotten the actual classes i wanted yet
8 min – doing what you want to do always wins
9 min – b – a quote – hierarchy of a male can be based off his ability to make decisions and stick with them… it defines where you’re going to be..
does it make sense?
AJ‘s latest interview – 7 min ish
it’s no wonder that so many of us leave high school and college with no idea of what we really want to do. of course – you’ve never been asked.. we get told/guided what to do.

18 min – bennett shared a story from the book – the compound effect – to demonstrate exponentiality – where people were compared over time doing small things. they stayed similar.. for months.. until month 15.. the person doing healthy things – changed exponentially
