“If you believe that your thoughts originate inside your brain, do you also believe that television shows are made inside your television set?”
― Warren Ellis
Thoughts are made up of many interactions, choose those interactions wisely.
Why People Who Brush Still Get Cavities
Cavities are likely a microbiome problem, similar to gut health, and certain people are more predisposed to getting them. Change your microbiome, change your life.
Straw Man vs. Steel Man
I recently learned about the term "Steel Man", which is an effective technique to make your own argument stronger by being able to see both points of view.

This podcast is about Miss Excel, and it’s wild because she takes the boring subject of Excel (you know what I'm talking about for those of you who have watched an Excel video on YouTube... painfully boring) and makes it fun!
Check out this 30-second YouTube video to see what I mean.
The thing that is mind-blowing 🤯 is that she makes 6 figures per day! The differentiating factor is all about energy, and this goes to show how much it matters.
Thank god my budget doesn't look like the government. brb, reducing my USD positions.
Vessel Health Cards
I love the health tech revolution we live in today. We are finally beginning to transition from reactive "magic pill" health to proactive wellness.
Vessel is a urine test strip that allows you to instantly view results to understand what food, supplement, and lifestyle changes will have an impact on your life.
I've done a bunch of urine test strips before, but they are simply measuring pH, while Vessel takes the guesswork out of it, and actually makes recommendations.
This is similar to how supplement marketing has changed over the past couple of years moving from a matter of fact to benefits. For example, magnesium branding itself for relaxation.
A place to find top-rated itineraries for your next travel location.
I don't know about you, but whenever I travel somewhere new, I Google "X location N day itinerary" to get ideas. Some are great, while others are pretty meh. I scan through 10s of these for each location I travel to and then populate my own itinerary spreadsheet.
This takes HOURS.
I would love a service that aggregated all of these itineraries and rated them for my specific location. I believe there is an opportunity to even dive a bit more niche and do this for something like backpacking as well. For example, I went to the Lost Coast and luckily was able to get a spreadsheet itinerary from my co-worker, which ended up being life-saving (maybe even literally).
