ABOUT THIS EPISODE

In the Episode of The Clever Dummies Podcast Lachlan & Aneeqe Talk a bout the balance of life and the change.

And hello everyone. Welcome to the episode seventeen of the clever dummies podcast. I'm lucky, as always, joined by a Nique. Great to talk to again. My Day gone today. I'm good, man, I'm good. I'm happy to be talking to you, as always. It's it's a real pleasure, you know, it's just like you've said it before. You know you're happy to be here. Really made me realize how happy I am to be doing this podcast. Thank you. Yeah, now, you're welcome. I didn't fucking thank you too. It's good. Hope anyone who is listening out there. Hope you guys appreciate listening to it, and you know we appreciate this point and we just love doing it, man. So yeah, it's very good to be back. Brother, first of September already. Obviously it's everyone's talking about how fast this year is gone. It's just absolutely fly by made and Little Abbie seven weeks today, which is pretty crazy to men. That dad life is is very real. It's, you know, very strong, but that I love every minute of a brave and even the hard stuff. And you just live in a house full of just poopers. Might we got two dogs outside and we got a little baby, just open machines. I've got some issues digesting LAC taste, mate, so I'm ripping in tear and usually to say smelly household made. But's a good household, Bro, and winners. Winners definitely over up here and crops might we're very lucky to have some warm weather and a nicely coach the beach to so yeah, things are come and good, Bro. What about? What about? I think today's the first day spring, right, September's the end. It is the first deal. Yeah, it's right. And bring that up. Beautiful, beautiful. When I was younger I used to love the first day off spring for some reason and I just thought it was going to change everything. Yeah, each year. You never really did, but it just makes me feel that way. I did notice it last year. As we get a bit older, maybe one of those things you appreciate a bit more in schools, like school holidays and Sport and cricket season, drinking season. WHO STARTING NEXT? Said they actually so. The boys will be facing back in the nets. I'm sure, mate, roll in the arms over trying to drop that last one. A couple of J's before the season starts. So yeah, hit up to all the boys out there are today. That's the one I mean. Yeah, well, first of all, too sounds great. I mean, whoop, whoop, US. Sounds like find. I mean, how else would you have it? Right, living the dream? Ye, bloody earth might first one problems might be good to have, absolutely good to have. Mean seven weeks right, the same when weeks? That's how quick is that? Like just I mean, talk about this a year and talk about the past seven weeks. I mean it would just sounds like the day we did the podcast off, like hey, I'd be, you know, just about talking, talking about happy right. Yeah, if that's my saying, it's thats and it definitely it feels like, you know, you kind of feel every day in a certain element, but the day's blend together big time. I was talking to someone of the gym today about it and it was Tuesday and I'm like, yeah, I think it's Tuesday. Said Day and Thursday came together and Thursday last week was like Tuesday. So you don't know what really what day it is, but now it's I feel like most people are in the similar boat twice. Right. We're getting through what we've been going through this year and things and start the come good by, and so we shouldn't be too far away from kind of getting back on on track in a lot of areas. But that might we just got to keep living day by day to season to take too much on board and then you get hit with something. That's definitely been the one theme of lockdown as all the all the surprises and kind of the left left rights that we've been hit with, both with the virus and I mean what a tough ear we obviously, is it Chadwick Boseman and my pronouncing it correct ter about? Yeah, Jacob Boseman. Yeah, obviously Black Panther passing away, might have been two days ago, might have been sad day. So probably what thirty of of August or something like that. Had A battle of four years of colon cancer and he actually was doing Black Panther and did all the avenger movies and I think it was in it one or two other ones while he had cancer and everything. So that's pretty pretty remarkable. So it's always easy to you know, those unfortunate events kind of make you appreciate life a little bit more and how how not too bad things really are. Well, well, that's exactly what that's exactly right. I mean it's been a long year. I mean, as I talked about this year, it's already empty, but I mean it's got it's coming pretty close, right. It's coming pretty close. It's already you know, it's September and there's not much left of this year, right, and it's such a it's been such a long year, despite the all the craziness. I mean it's really been one of a kind of a year, it right. I mean you talk about all the things that happened this year. The fires were this was that rusand and nineteen or this year as well. Yeah, it was kind of bithe but kind of like you go covid nineteen, then just so much happening. I mean next also, by the way, I don't know if people know, know there's a medeor on no oclusion course, from Earth. Yeah, so that's telling. Yeah, on the day before the election, apparently, like sometimes in November or US election. That is so they're saying. I mean, obviously what they're saying is the chances are it won't. I mean, what hit the earth? They'll probably get destroyed before it in a crash in the atmosphere. But...

...the the I think the scar is the fact that I'll cause like huge storms or whatnot. I mean, what I want one of a kind of a year. Huh. I mean, you really just makes you wonder. I mean if it's just quick wake up, called from the universe, is like get you fucking as you know, get your shit together, you know. Yeah, so your problems out, because so your problems, much worse can be around a corner. And it doesn't feel it wouldn't. It doesn't feel as significant. Is that normally would you were like a two thousand and twenty? Is What it is. Just don't it wouldn't be wouldn't be complete without the mediorite coming in and maybe taken out half of the Middle Middle America or something like that. Just not in some of those Bas maybe rip through Wuhan or something like that. I'd be good, but but like a one, one thing at a time. But when that on somewhere, he knows if that's savent true. But I could be a great troll job that did fucking Jack. People wouldn't probably need look at probably be and that's that's it's just fear Meng who's going on? I mean, if you actually go look up new some of the headlines that you read, you're like, surely that could be true because this is so nuts. And look covered nineteen has been, you know, coming it's been getting better. It's getting better all around the world it's really starting to get better. Whether whether it's just people just stopped giving a shit about going nineteen to there over it, or it's actually coming to an end, because I was reading this scholar article a few weeks ago and it was talking about how this pandemic ends. This two ends to a pandemic. There's a social aspect of it, when, basically the society stops fearing the particular disease and or and they learn to live with it. The second end is when it actually, medically speaking, ends, when it's Tooden, when it doesn't in fact any more people or is fully in control. They speak about you know. So when you look at most pandemic or epidemics, for example, a ball of virus is still around right, people are still getting infected by it, but the thing with a ball of viruses is just like two cases a year or three kisses a year, or maybe shouldn't get hit with a ball and are if it negative for covid happy days but you've got the fucking Swan for what? And same things fine flows around, as was. All these things are around, obviously just being controlled and they being caught of the economic goes into social right, like when the kind of the economic recovery, when people can start making money and earning money and paying people to work and more people can get back into the job force and be like contribute in a large way, like be working full time hours and multiple jobs and kind of fully furnishing economy. So that's that's kind of a I feel like we're entering a little bit that stage now, right. Yeah, for sure. I don't know. How is that going to navigate? Like I have no clue because and I can't even like this. No, I was looking up some, you know, studies behind on how that's previous bat previous pandemic and previous such situation have been dealt with. I mean, the market is we can cry, market is gone, even though actually the market is a held up very, very well. Given them talking about stock market here right, it has helped very well, apart from the initial crash. Surprisingly right, it's actually kind of odd that I'm looking at it. I was going to market as held decently. Well, yeah, they don't get me wrong, some money K areas, right, yeah, yeah, it's done by I think it's done by ten or something like, or some amazing up to sixty. But the the point is it's still not. It's not. It's not sad, right, it's not like, yeah, like beer, catastrophic. Yeah, catastropic, right, which is which actually surprised with surprise me. But the second thing is, I don't know, because this is the first time where people it's a whole different era of the way, because we were entering a new era of economy in the first place anyway, just before this happened, like I mean we have been for the past few years, because we're looking at we've got micro businesses, we got, you know, all these micro businesses happening. So it's not like a lot of people are working on full time hours and that's so it's a whole different era almost because, you know, you take me, for example, I guess I in a way I'm a micro business right, like I don't really work for people. I don't work for a huge company that could you know. That has to work our way out and come up with a new business plan. I've do that my own myself, right. And so days it's going. It's going to be interested interesting how government handles that, and like different governments too, because previously they would have just put in, you know, subsidies for like big companies, for example. Let's say last time they might have just put in a subsidy for food, you know, so biggause, not subsidies. Sorry, what is it going to breaks? Tax Breaks and, you know, sub set beside. It is called subsidy when basically government gives you grants, government subsidies, probably saunds. Yeah, subsidy is, yea something like that. Right, subsidize or something like that. But basically government might have given like, you know, and they did. They didn't give contest money and all those companies right, and then it makes sense because...

...they employ so many people. But now the differences. There is so many of those micro businesses and small businesses and medium businesses that don't really fit into those big economy companies, big economy making companies. And I mean, on top of that, the government is now sort of like almost kind of afraid of those big monopoly companies as also kind of government kind of like just doesn't even talk to them. And doesn't want to talk about them because how much they cant all these days anyway. So it's not like previously government might have supported holden, but now now if there's a it's a monopoly company like Google, government is just almost afraid of Google, so to speak, trying to banded in Australia. One stays, weren't they? I mean it's it's quite true. Now, that's right, there's like a kind of a collective. It's probably it's just a market place. There's so many individuals and so many people in who own businesses in a in a position to have financial control of certain areas. So it's not surprising that there's more people. There's more people who need that are living off their own bat and working, probably more entrepreneurs and more people working for themselves just because of what the Internet has allowed. So most definitely wearing a much better position than we were twenty or thirty years ago. The Internet's a beautiful thing because it kind of trends ends life sometimes right like you can you can turn it virtue and you can figure out the same type of business with slightly different infrastructure, and Bang you've got an online business that still works as well as it would, if not better, if it was brick and mortar. So in that La area it's really great and I think at human beings, the nature of humans of, you know, very strong throughout history. Look at the amount of things that people have come back from and everything else. I think people are going to recover from that too. Yeah, I guess the only thing that I really am concerned about is obviously the you know, the efficiency in the effectiveness that big business and government were able to implement social changes and we're able to control the population at a mass level. Obviously that's a little bit concerning, but it's also not frightening to like it almost had to be done. That's why we have government there. Sometimes we need kind of that invention. And then just the social effect of obviously separating people and almost vilifying groups against other groups. And we've seen obviously the protest and and then subsequent riots small, you know, very small part of the the overall protesting had writing involved and for the most part it's just they call, sometimes I call them agent provocateurs, and it's just bad people. It's just people that just go in there just to cause trouble and they actually weren't a part of it. But those, maybe those protests wouldn't have happened without the world being able to focus on George Floyd and now Jacob Lake and everything else. So it's it's so much to unpack there. I mean they really do. There really is. I mean so you we think it's a list of what the last seven or eight months has gone by so fast. is because so many things have happened that as you're kind of getting over one think something else happens or it's just a continue and flow. So it's like the last seven months we've had like five years worth of just a shit happy. Yeah, trauma, but yeah, trauma is probably not a bit. The media is loving it that you're gonna give like they're loving it. They've got their cocksure, they loven't you know it? There's a lot to con back there, right. So, I mean you you, when we talk about the control, I don't necessarily. I actually think that it's probably going to be one of the difficulty that's probably going to cause more of a difficulty, the fact that it's harder to control people now due to the ID due to the Internet. I mean, you look at how what's happening in Victoria. People are protesting against the premier. You know, each to their own. And I've been listening to his press conference every single day. Well, maybe not every single day, but yeah, listening to expects. But poor cameras to speak for an hour every day and say the same thing. fucking ridiculous man, same things a week, twice a week if something major happens. Like yeah, it's tough. So you yeah, but I get what you mean. The job he has to do. You know, not many people are. Actually, no one's equipped to do it. That's why no one's doing it. Well, well, that's done exactly what. Wouldn't move be able to, you know, put it put a fucking foot right. So I think most of the time, particularly Australia, leadership is done ninety percent right and then temper set wrong and, you know, unfortunately then may lose the next election or he may be taken out of power. But it doesn't you know, it does, it doesn't matter. It's like Kevin Rod was only in power a few years and he did the big apology to native Australians, to the indigenous people, and he was there for any three or four years, but he did work that's, you know, paid his you know, can kind of set him up for life in the sense of how important it was to the country. So I think doctor there and, oh, doctor Danby might be, might be like that. Oh yeah, we disc about all right, yeah, it acted there and all that sort of Shit. It's so real little politics that people forget all the time is that the dude that's in charge isn't really in charge. He's just...

...that he's the goddess, speaks really well and he's got a clean record. And I mean yeah, I mean he's got state of emergency in his place, so it does give him fair bit of control more than usual. So that's probably I think. But I do want to say, though, what I was going to try and say is, and yeah, people absolutely always forget that. I mean, right there is a great example of people know, because people are people need to understand politics is normally they would be blaming the prime minister, right and right there is a great example of how much control actually the prime minister has over work state. Because Danna and was doing everything. Was this almost a whole functioning country. Obviously the Fed Ras Federal Government's got influence. Our word like it's not that it's completely honest own, but you know, you realize how much control, how much of the governess actually happens at the state level, and that's that's interesting to realize, because most people will point fingers at, you know, the prime minister, and same thing up here, up there in America that point fingers at the president. Really, the Prime Minister in the presence are really just a figure of in a figure, because I'll tell you what they are and I'll tell you what Danna and do. These right and I said this to someone. I said victorians needed someone to blame. It was like, whether it's Dan Andrews Fault or not him, we always needed an escape couard, the reason being humans are too primitive. We're still too primitive and our thinking is too primitive to understand that suffering is inherent and there's no particular reason why. Victoria was the state that suffered the mores and you thought was, didn't yeah, it just happens to be the stately yeah, yeah, I'm pass yeah, I mean it wasn't going to be. You know, it wasn't going to be. You know, we don't go or it wasn't good. He wasn't going to be, you know, facing that that's more territory or something, because no one grothy. You look at and I think our is our brains really that primitive that we can't get that through our head, because you really look at the numbers for a second, they don't make sense because, you know, new south was on a Ro, was on a rule. Even, let's say, you know, the whole core hotel quarantine thing fucked up completely right, but look at the numbers, how they multiplied. I really just, you know, I just think it's just unfortunate and you know, obviously he's going to have to take the fall for it and he's, I probably think he's accepted and that's why he's just like, you know, he doesn't care if people see him as evil, because that's what everyone sees him at the moment. People who supported him, they're like, well, you know, you know, let us go blah, blah, blah. We're in a lockdown. It's it's truly interesting because as if I was that, I was him, I would know, because there's no way I'm getting back into politics because or getting reelected because interesting by it up all the side of power play card. Over the last week or two interesting timing for that. It really isn't it coming up? Yeah, yeah, selections are coming up. So elections push back. I mean I think so. When we're at the elections. I'm not sure. You'd have to look at them, but they they're different across each state. I know I think Northern Territory just had theirs and I think government particularly to show. But most governments are kind of using what happened in other countries as a guide because we just don't really know too much about the virus. So it's really unpredictable. And of course Australia was not the last effected nation, but we we were. We kind of saw what was happening in the US and in China and Europe before it kind of hit our shore, so we kind of had a little bit of time to prepare for it and react in that sort of thing and according to just make more careful now. They just not they don't want to reopen, but they also shouldn't go the other way and threaten people the other way because like it's you know, we just yeah, at the end of the day, you're there to serve the people. The people aren't there to serve you. So just because you think something's the right thing to do doesn't mean it is. And obviously he's you know, he's not the one making the decisions. He's getting advice from, you know, the right areas, but sometimes it's, you know, particularly weighing up. Now it gets to the stage where you have to look at how long do you want to be shut down? I think you have to weigh up the trade off between the effect on society and how you know how bad the virus actually isn't to even talk about locking down for another twelve months. I think you probably deserve to get set down after that. People don't forget that thing. You know, it's only one little comment and people can change and we all change our opinions. So I wouldn't even care personally, but most people don't want to hear that sort of thing now. So, yeah, could you find a day? Yeah, so, actually I didn't realize that the state election for Victoria is actually in two thousand and two eight eighteen, November. That's why I learn. Yeah, so I had nothing. Why is yeah, he's got enough time to do it. I mean, I yeah, people might forget, who knows? That's probably why he's probably setting a good example, because he might actually have plane in his head. Who knows what's happening here. Just being over the cautious, I think so. Yeah, I mean I would appreciate a little bit glimmer of hope from him, because he's very brilliant, pretty native. Yes, it right. Yeah, it looks like a yeah, he looks...

...like a bloody a lawyer who's been doing it too long. He's like all this cat, you know, I'm just sick. Yeah, I mean, I mean the way he says that as well. That what he talked about. Is that all? I'm disappointed that it was a beautiful day in Victoria. I was like, Oh, like, I get what you're saying, but you know, come on, Dad, like, you know, cut sound slack. We've been in here for a while, you know. Yeah, at least right. I think that's important. I think it's as a leader is important to inspire, which I think previously has. But maybe he's just tired as well. Who knows? What US right? He tried to go to one footy game on a Sunday. Alvo or might have been Morrison. They will hook get into him because he doesn't enough. It's like just relax, guys, they're not really doing that much. So, you know, people like to think like the working around the clock, but just doesn't work. People just people or dumb out. They don't really understand what hell things were like. Rooms might like I said before, humans, humans brains are still primitive, not all of us, on average, their brains are primitive, that they don't understand these things and more so, they don't want to. Always, you know, it's easier to be, easier to just jump up and down and complain about something. Talking about complaining about something. There is something that I was wanted to talk to run by you and actually kind of discusses on the PODCAST. People protest. People protesting everything right, like you know, or like signing petitions for everything. It's getting to the point where it's like, you know, it's getting so saturated. It's like petitions is so saturated that this like it's like you're trying to make social change. Nothing is happening because you just trying to make social change of every like, you know, no one's focusing on the important anymore, but everyone's just doing their own social change. Someone's someone starty to don't put sign this participation petition so we don't cut down that particular tree on this particular things. It's yeah, I thought that was pretty interesting because I feel like that's getting dangerous because people get desensitized to social change and that will just become you know, because no one will care about change anymore. That's right, and that was the big concern with kind of the overseeing of pair, the overstep of powers, making people, kind of getting people use the idea of being told what to seven, and it's the same principle in that regard. This two people kind of think about that situation in two different ways. Fuck, I lishally just lost my trail. I thought it was a good one. What what was like the last sentence you just said? I was just saying that, you know, the people are going to get desensitized to social diety, of social change, and also, right here, it was like all the not canceled culture. Yeah, cance college is pretty much it. But although over petitioning and people being upset about a lot of things, there's like what? The one train of thought, and I'm the one that I subscribe to the most, is people that don't experience enough adversity in their lives like to create a little bit of animosity something to overcome, overcome or a team to kind of be on, so you know, something to be passionate about, time to stand up, something to fight against the boarding and boom, exactly right would. And then the second one is just it's community. It's like being a part of something. So you're a part of a social group, or you say, share the same ideology with someone, so you it's kind of like a mutually binding thing and you're a part of a group, and then you go ahead and push through it. That's what our society is based upon. It. Those things are really great, but just because of where we're stuck at right now and a little bit of the world we live in in the way. But people the way. People rationalize and are really overly reactive to things that happen instead of kind of insightful and take king it in. It's just about a reaction. It's usually it's usually negative, like if you try a bit react to everything, usually going to start getting negative because it's just what it is. Right like it's you can be very positive. So I think you can. You can react well most of the time, but I think if you're constantly looking to react very strongly to something, you're probably going to find it easy to be a negative reaction because it's a little bit easier as humans to be negative rights, just kind of like the trade. Like we can live great, happy lives, but we can also undo a lot of that work by being so need to give. And I think it's also probably just the way of people's dealing with the time we live in, unfortunately, and it's sort of thinks we're on a path, or on that path anyway. Right it's like just magnetic. It's like it's just sped everything up twelve eighted months. Everything's got a chance to get some attention now, because a lot of people are stuck at home, and look at what things that do. So those so sure those changes or those things that are happening have had a chance and then with the good comes a bad to you kind of just get more water under the bridge. It's it's always a negative. The reason really what you said about it's sometimes it's the negative. I think it's always a negative, because negative gets more attention. That's but that's probably why it's easier to highlight the negatives and then to always a propose a solution, because you ever, if you ever look at a work bless you know,...

...you'd always see there's always that one colleague who's always just, you know, picking Shit on everyone, but never was a solution, you know. So it's harder to propose a solution and it's easier to just, you know, pick, pick out issues, because anyone, I mean you, it's that's how movie critics work. I mean so there's, you know, movie critics. I actually think I probably the scummers of the scum. They have, the scavengers of the arts ride or any kind of critic, right, because you think about it, right, and the way they get the join of the they right negative stuff, right, they right negative shit, negative shit, and that's how you know. That's how that's how they seen that someone the something they know, because they're like, well, don't go to see this movie. There's there's a really interesting in I don't know if there's a movie called Alamo Dialamite, Miname Talamite. It's interesting movie, but basically when that movie got made it was like one of the first, one of the first major production with all black cast in it. Right, yeah, I didn't hear that. No one every yeah, they made the movie themselves and recently there was another Netflix movie that got made about making of the movie. So. So that movie basically talks about how all these critics rated the movie horrenders right, but they were as lines and lines and lines of people trying to wait for the watching movies right. So, which was interesting. So it just really goes to show that how people, people think. And then again people, you know, how funny it is that everyone actually still listens to those critics, despite the fact that it may be, like you know, because critics are always going to do what they do because that's what that's what's work for them. Sometimes we will go watch that movie because our friends are watching the movie, because humans are just silly and we get influenced by everything. We're just like you know. We're like a balloon going left and right, like you know, with the air coming out of it, which is go left right, whatever ever the wind takes us. We don't wouldn't even stop to make our own mind. And I think so that that's the whole concept of the basically why you jump up and down about something, because I've always thought if you want to change the world right, if you want to change make real change, it's you will never you will never fix the macro problems. Right, I'm like, the major problems. You'll never fix ine quality between men and women, but you got to find out. I mean you can fix it, right, but it will take so much longer. If you directly try to fix that one problem, what it's actually doing is you'll find it's probably a smaller problem that sits way down down the root somewhere, that it's actually probably causing six other major issues. It compounds. Right, yeah, it comes. Right, if you go fix that tiny problem, that tiny problem, you'll solve all these major problems that people like to talk about because they they can be seen and no one wants to grow. So not like let's put let's use this an example. Right, no one wants to know. One wants to go make a toilet in a school in India, right, and that's that's the thing. Right. And then you think about this for a second, right, if if you think about making toilet in the schools in India, right, for girls, right in India, because there's a high population of women and up not being not studying. Right, it's going to roll better now, but it used to be. And and you what? They looked at the issue. Why? The issue. Why Women, why girls in India weren't going to school. Turns out most school didn't have female toilets. But just think about this for a second. Just female because they like how they they're going to do, because post don't, schools don't have female towards. No one wants to go make a toilet in India in schools because that doesn't that you can't boast about it, right, but if you did, look at how many problems that just goes off. Female popular, popular populace is getting educated. Yeah, they're probably getting higher jobs, they're probably gonna get equality, Hija and, you know, even high chene hygiene. They're gonna understand what the you know, the child mortality in from mortality rates going to go down because the MOMS are going to know how to treat their kids. And then, on top of all that, you might have an economy that might actually start working a lot better, because it's not just one one gender that's actually working. Now you got pustions is working. So what I'm saying is, like, that's what I was proposing and that's what I've always proposed. With what I said to you, Laklin, that project which and disclosed project will talk about later. That was saying if we can fix tiny problems that people people, no one was to give it. No one has to give a shit about because you can't brag about it, because that's what it is. Every wants to break about the problems. You know, putting the Coffee Cup back at the cafe. No one gives a shit. was like, well, you're that's just intended, but no one does it. My thought process if if I put the coffee back, cut back in the cafe and give it to the think they'll put a smile on thing. Maybe face with a breaster. Maybe, maybe, you know who knows what he was going to do right today and maybe what kind of moodive was. All of a sudden that could just change the whole trajectory of his life hundred percent. Or maybe I see them later on it on tinder and swap right and I know it's even then buying my ear after the rice is pining. APP forward one hundred percent, and that's that's what I'm saying. So I think were trying to ad fix major...

...problems without looking at the roots of them, which it's like. It's like we're trying to let's say if there's a you know, we just trying to think of a good, good analogy for this. Yeah, prevention is better than a cure. So I think kind of where we can apply that medically to covid yeah, being healthy is your best line of defense. Being well. That's yeah, working on problems and trying to make yourself a better person and nicer person makes other people, because if you're in a good man you're happy, you're going to do and be better. kind of that's it. Look, I think it's all aspects of it's all areas of life. I mean, so let's it's looks. Use a wall, for example. Right, let's say if there's a there's a little hole in the wall. Right, you could put it, you could put you can just put tape on it. That may, you know, solve your problem, right, but still not going to take away the whole that's still there, because that's what everyone starting to but cover the whole so you don't see it. And that's the same thing with happening with cancer. To culture, all of a sudden we deleting from history that what we called were sort of you know, cultural in a cultural appropriation, for example, on net or Netflix, of people the all these movies are coming down really that we just actually leaving the whole in or you were talking about it. So yet we put a tape on it. No, let yeah, yeah, we're pretending like it didn't happen. That ends like how many, right? Yeah, that's exactly right. So I think for that sense, everyone is around a group year. I think we really need to address the key to the problem. And just like dieting as well, which is a great example, you know, people jump on soon as you see someone. Whenever someone starts jumping on a they're going to start going to Jim and lose way. First thing they do is go. They go by three hundreds worth of supplements and take it from someone who's been gone to you for five years, that's the least of your worries, you know. You know that look like how much? Yeah, supplements help, but that's exactly what they are. Supplement yeah, this is it's in the blacking word. Yeah, and then the yeah, the psychology of what people are. That market is of really been out of capitalism, the fitness industry and so many industries with it, and supplementation is like small incremental changes to give you that little ledge up. It's not to it's not to help, but like there is something to it. A few times if I've gotten back in the gym more I've gotten people in and they've gone and bought some new clothing and all that sort of thing. Like that's a little bit different. I think like that's more of a psychological thing. Stuff that's got just to set the supplement industry is very deceitful. So that's it's kind of a little bit of a problem. Is that the problems or the solutions were trying to come up without really solutions, or they're not real solutions. They tend to going to make you feel better, like a pre workout. You know I'll have a great work out this time because I'm having pre work out. But what happens if I don't have my prey work out? I'll leave it at home? Do I just not go to the gym? Are I'll come back next time because I don't know, pretty work out or doesn't really work? Did it? It's the thing is, I mean you're right at the pre workout helps, right, but you know pre workout itself means nothing if you don't go to the gym. That's that's what I'm that's what I'm saying. And you know, yeah, you could take pre work out. You know, it's just useless without if not, going to gym. In facts, probably is bad for you in someone's definitely. Yeah, and you look at another example that I wanted to use was when people jump on a died the first thing they do is they go shopping in the shop excessively. That's I've always looked at. I'm like that never makes human to cut down your food. Not. Yeah, yeah, and and you know, recently I've been thinking a lot about this. It I was like, Oh, over the years, and I've just wrote down where I went wrong and I've been doing a lot of analysis, using this time to analysis my different areas and looking at the preconceived data that I've had to look at different things, like what's gone wrong? Why am I diets never work? And I really thought about it, and so it's well, the reason why diets have never worked over the years, it is because there's two reasons. First of all, I'm always dating foot for a goal. Right, it's ill, let me get shredded and that's be right. So that's probably one of the major problems. The second problem is the second bomb is whenever I died. It's always so complex. It's like I'm having like oats in the morning and then we'd like berries and then cought to cheat, what the like? You know, who the fuck does that? Like, you know? And then I'm prepping for eighteen days. Yeah, and this so complex and I get tired of me meal prepping. The next time I have to do my slash those feelings that you don't normally eating right. So you're not accustom dating it not you still preparing him. But yeah, that's say true, isn't it? Yeah, so I was telling you about it. I took a new minimalistic approach to dieting. Right, so I said, okay, well, you know, I need to. I'm still going to balance on my Macros, but I'm just going to take the weir minimum and eat like bland food, which works on my thing, for rest, for rest fort like for the next twenty five days or the thirty days, right, and which it was was basically I'm having, you know, for extra breakfast, like three exfra breakfast with a slice of toast, slight size of toast, a hundred games of chicken with with with like vegetables and for dinner I'm having beef means with some...

...more vegetables and that's it, like there's nothing fancy about it. Yeah, it's nothing citing about our way. I think come complex when you explain it like that, like you're explaining exactly what's in the food. So it sounds complicated, but it isn't. You need to have a little bit of a plane. That's all that is. It's just a plane of what you're going to eat so you understand the calories and making sure you're eating good food. You can't just say our money, gonna eat two meals. Well, what if you fucking eat sixzero calories in those teal meals? So that's the way, that's that's it's. Everyone's going to be different, but I think as a broad stroke, that's the best way to do it. Break it down into individual meals. What each food is kind of roughly how much of that food you need, without getting, you know, eighty five grams of shredded cheese and forty eight grams of dish tomatoes, like, without getting to crazy like that's exactly. That's exactly the problem. Because and the thing is, and what I did and that's another problem. Every day I used to map everything, map on it, used to record everything on my fitness path. Even that alone is such a hassle. Right. I was like, so shit APP right, it's a good A. Right, it's too complex for the phone. It's a beautiful, beautiful APP, but it's too complex. Right, it's like it's the problem is having to remember to do it. Yeah, is that it doesn't feel naturally yeah, that's right. Doesn't feel Natura. So now I already know how many calories I'm going to eat for the next thirty days, so exactly how much macros I'm going to eat, because that's all I have to do. I mean it's going to take a little bit more discipline because there's no variance in my food, but I'll get used to it by the seventh day and they'll just be normal. That's right. Yeah, you can. You know, I like to sometimes when I'm doing that approach, I like to create like a longer fasting period, and that does promote a little bit of fat burning and creates a natural caloric deficit, because you're not, you know, you're limiting the window that you can eat in, but you can definitely push over your calorie budget. You know, in an hour, like you can easily eat enough. But I feel like when I can fast a little bit longer and maybe I can buy a meal or I make a couple of meals, bigger and smaller, when I get that face, there's something like, something about being really satiated and really full. That makes you feel really good and it's like I'll out how it work. Pays off because even though I'm dining, man, I just ate a shit light of, you know, chicken salad or so like I just had a shit lad of passer bake with, you know, whatever it is, it's like that's you know, I kind of like that's what because I'm sort of food. Most of us are food. He is man like. We love our food. So is about enjoying it too and finding like little ways to enjoyed in that in that regard. Well, that, well, that's it. I mean fright of sources, dudes, don't be a phrase. Anyone is telling you to cut out sources and salad dressings and salt and all that might. There's Zelots. They're Nazi's cut of off. You don't need that negativity deal life. The thing is, most people aren't me. Most people aren't cutting for cutting for a show, right, so they don't need to. Yeah, like is about anymore. So we should be very rest in pieces. So, yes, it's probably not. kind of its safe, is it? It's Nice's not covid safe, is it's what it is, as will like. And I looked at my dad I was like, okay, you know what, I'm going to look at this te as not only the Diet. I'm going to look at it as like a like a exercise towards like higher awareness as well. So almost trying to do that monk like mentality. You know that. So trying to do the minimistic was because I've also realize when I eat less and minimum, I actually feel a lot more. I also feel a lot more conscious, like I'm always weird, like way more aware than usual. Do you find that? I think you're mute, lackman. Sorry, my bad, I just had a cough before and I didn't turn it off. I find it the same case because you yeah, I agree. I agree. It's kind of hard. I didn't hear the last part of it. Sorry. Could he repeat that? As like an Asshole, I would just actually cut out. And it's I was saying that one of the reasons I was looking at the simplistic diet as well, and it's because I also see it almost as that monk kind of diet as well, because with with training your body actually, you know, I personally try and being trying to, you know, make sure my brain is keeping up as well, because without without these day, is so many aspects to it as well. Like obviously I learned so much, I read so many books, but I've also I've also looked a lot at that, you know, monk mentality of you know, trying not to get so ex like that up and down, specially in this this era of like the covid nineteen, it was so hard like that up and down, up and down. One day you're excited, the next day you like fuck everything, you know, so trying to find that middle line to sit that I realize a lot of that is like, you know, you look at the monks, the way they did the life. They were never super excited about the training, at the way they did, they also weren't sad about it. They let in this happy Middle Yep, and I thought it Worka and then that's also and then when you start thinking about that. What happens is it's every time you lose control, is like off, let's say, when you get angry or pissed and so are getting sad. I realize is that's when you're...

...awareness is starts a breaking, and then you know how hyper aware of things you are that as soon as that starts breaking, you start losing it. That's what happens when you know. But I find I can foot and then we can keep your focus, mantain your focus. But I find when I'm on a own, like on a carey deficit died, I'm a lot more hyperaware of things and I'm like a lot more a lot more focused. Makes and yeah, you're more conscious. You're conscious almost seven throughout the day of what you're eating and how much you're eating a little bit. So you're constantly thinking about it. So you're all you're never just like punked out and you never just eating to weed or you've got a plane with it. So there's definitely, I think, a really good kind of sense of direction with that, and that's kind of the biggest thing with the time we live in now, like we need we need to cut out a lot of the unnecessary because there's so much mental energy that goes into something daily that wasn't there before that we need to kind of wait in it out. And it's the same we're training as well, like without access to Jim's obviously a different story. But even if we are training like we might not have as much time as we normally would or we just don't have the energy, you know, to naturally go in there and, you know, destroy ourselves every time. So even even training wise, we can, you know, in if we're going in there doing say, for example, like we're doing six different exercises, we're doing drop sets and change weights and all that sort of thing, we can just you'll, I'll go in there, I'll do four different stations, I'll go through each one in a minute. I'll do that for twenty minutes and then I'll get in there and I'll get back into it, and that's kind of like where we need to be at for most people. Need to be at that right now, because it's seems to either be one extreme of the other right it's like really high, like Oh man, I'm feeling good, I'm going to smash this thing, or really low, and yeah, we almost need to live in like that we need to we animlystis the great way to look at it. Or like simple, spit sip, not simple, simplistic is but probably better than me than as exempt its minutes. Yeah, it. Just look at the two thousand eighty twenty rule. What eighty percent of Shit you can cut out and do keep the twenty percent and still get the eighty pertend. That is yea, yeah, that's Eighty Tho. It's master principle. It's great and it's and it's so it's so point itt in right now like that. Such a we knew was great concept, but that is such a great concept right now, like today. Absolutely, yeah, that's so. Forget book, My, that's not it was the any pore. Yeah, pretsplant. Yeah, yeah, there's that's Prett to the participants with this few books about I think there's actually a book called any twenty rule. That's a brilliant book. Tim Ferris actually talks about. Tim Ferris actually has this little booklet that he launched recently and I loved at any one of that. He said seventeen questions that in my life and one of the questions I read and I was like, okay, this question is brilliant. The question propose. How can I fix the problem? What problems can I fix? How can I fix a problem when the only thing I can do is substract, because whenever we think about fixing a problem, we add right, we just throw shit on you know. But what problems can I fix by only subtracting? And I thought that was an interesting question. Then I've been really thinking a lot about that kind of philosophy because a lot of the time, when you think about the fact how we're fixing problems and how your dress bombs or most of done, we just throw things out a problem and how many times can you get rid, like how many things times can you subtract from a problem and that will solve a problem, which is which is interesting, whether it be for training and how you feeling as well? You know, it's my I've been. We're just get we get overwhelmed a lot of the time, like when when we're trying to challenge ourselves and we're doing something new or we're doing something that's difficult, it's like an easy countermeasure or just a natural balance that we have deep in out you know, selfconscious mind to kind of fight against it or not be so sure. So we kind of take that uncertainly instead of like a necessary road block, like how you're going to die and then the first couple of weeks it's going to be really hard. Instead of folding and quitting there, we have to understand that that's what's going to happen. So I think that helps to that like a little bit of planning with it, a little bit of understanding of what's actually going on and trying not to be so reactive to it and understanding it's going to happen. You're going to feel like shit some days and you're training not going to be great and you're going to go into work and you're going to read five emails. Wasn't not going to remember it. Fucking Shit. That's it. That's but that's exactly and for I was that's a very good point and I'm actually gonna you know, I've Read David Cogan's book. It's got still, it's got to stay hard. Is that what it's called? Hurt me, can't help me. Right, I read that book and I love how much discipline and I think he's selling via grow cold, stay hard. That might be where you get confused, right, how much world power he has right, but my theory, and I actually Rick, I disagree with him so much on that particular scenario and you know, I would stand by I think most of us, unlike him his super human capacity, have absolutely no will. We're basically creatures of self sabotage, like all we do is sulb sabotage.

So I like to come up with ideas and theories where it's almost impossible that you would break your own commitment. Yeah, yeah, it's that's a good way to look at it because, yeah, you're right, what he talks about a lot of time is just almost forcing yourself to do something. So even if you fail at something, you've tried so hard that it's exccess but it's not sustainable and it's probably any practical and one or two areas about lives, right, business, exactly what? You can be a savage businessman, but you're probably not going to be a world champion cross fitter either. Well, that's exactly I mean. He's mentality of how much pain he indoors is quite a little, to be completely honest. Also, is probably psycholic, and I mean it's only relevant to fitness and like that kind of area, right, it doesn't really work for me in business. I can't really just start knocking on the door of a person over and over again into my hand. Yes, because that's not what you do. It's really any practical if that's what you struggled with, was the you know, get doing the work kind of thing on anything? Yes, exactly right, and so I think it's better to come up with systems and tools that will force you to stick to something. Yeah, mist definitely. Most that's planning it out. Just planning it out. Why not? Make yet, make it easy as possible. Like, you know, basically, if you have a problem with, you know, eating shit, just throw out all the food that you have in your house in the Shit, right, and, you know, all just transport you like, for example, saving money is that's what I do with selling money. Right. I struggle with saving money. So what I did? I get created account, created account with a bank that has a slow transfer it right, it takes five days, five days of transfer into my accounts, right, so I put money in it. Let's say, if I'm out, I'm like, oh well, but need money, I need to transfer. It takes five days to transfer it to my normal cost spending on anyway, yeah, yeah, so I can't do it. So I'm like, well, I'm saving all of a sudden, saving more money. It's not that I've got the more will to save money, I just like it like a fuck more. Practically, is it? Yeah, for practically with it. I just know that I could think of like sugar and soft drinks and kind of cutting out a lot of the bad food we ate. Is. Yeah, you've pretty much got to go for Ham on a lot of it, like you can't just restrict it completely because your body has become adapted to using it and having it every day. But yes, you know, if people, first thing most people say when they're going on diet is they say, I'm going to stop eating fast food or, you know, not going to go to get something of the way home, like it's those little things. And Yeah, slow little things like that, little winds, and then all of a sudden you don't you don't want that shit on the way home because you know it doesn't make you feel good. And like my dry like I still have it from time to time, but my urges to have fast food, you know, non existent compared to where it was at one period of time and at one stage it wasn't always like that. Is just slowly, slowly it changed. You know, I think a lot of that and I think a lot of that is actually related as well, because when I would have written, I realize whenever I felt shitty about everything, I've eaten more yet pass but definitely it's not. Yeah, they're never exclusive. The never never school never had all these fucking case easing a box and things got better for the rest of the day. Right, like I've never, you know, I've never had a great meeting or die hit, hit a heavy legs session of the gym and Gone Eater Zing a board box. Right. It's always been having a shitty day, had argument with someone, couldn't go to the gym because of Kobe Nineteen fucking I'm going to go eat KFC and burgger that. I'm not hundred great. Yeah, exactly. It's so much of his related with that leaver near of Auntie's anymore. So maybe that was the last time we had a big post supposed trading feedback. shoutous bunny matter. It's greatest Kebab shop my one of the Best I've ever had. I still missed their snackpacks. To this day. I haven't had much stand up to it. So shoutout to Annie Hope. You Boys, is all. They'd be killer. They're going to be killer, right, they were. They could be seven for a like here. Might Great, shop, great, I think they outn for so, yeah, probably, probably. Yeah, that's so anyway. So that's that's that's that's where my head is. That and do some what the kind of things I want to discuss at the moment. The reason was so fit. That's focused because, like I said, I gained since much. I've gained seven killers. Yeah, fucking rough. Right. Yeah, what are you weighing at there? I'm at eighty two kilos, Y two three. Yeah, that's to get you still that's still not too bad. So it's all bad. But I've rapped. I mean, semi Killos is a lot. Yet, think about it. Yeah, you feel like you've gotten too old to be doing that. Yeah, yeah, I got up to eighty three just a few months ago, which, which, which is, you know, it is where it is under you know, I decided to jump on this new diet and trying to just, yeah, just trying to get this diet that just I don't break and I feel great about it. And the biggest thing is I look forward to eating food now, which I which is such a weird thing, because you forget how how interesting it is to eat food. Yeah, yeah, when it's not over insulging or your yeah, you make the most of when, if you do have a yeah, when, yeah, when you're more restrictive to what you wait, like, you definitely enjoy when you do give yourself a chance to eat out or, you know, just...

...whatever you're doing. It's so much more enjoyable. Is that when you're always constantly eating shit, it's like, Oh, here we go again, and it's like Oh, and like that, you your body also becomes adaptive to it as well. Like I really notice that we was sugar like and like I'm pretty I'm pretty off like black, like black toast now, so I really can't eat milk even if I tried to. But I think like lolly's are a big one, because I've always really liked all he's, like people have that finger chocolate and chips like Lolli's is my thing. So the more I eat it, like, the less I feel worse. But it's because my body is getting used to having it and then the weight comes on or you start to feel, you know, a little bit less every day, whereas you have it very rarely, then you have it like, oh, this is rubbish, I don't want to do that again. But your body kind of is very adapting and kind of place tricks on you a little bit. So that can definitely work for that has to wear. It is what works for being positive and positive and changing a life for the better. So you have to even know it sounds countered shut, if the things that get you on get your stuck and undone in your psychology and your way of thinking of the things that are going to help you too, that's pretty like a little bit hard to wrap your brain around, maybe, but, like you know, our greatest gift is often our greatest curse to well, that's that's pretty much it. Being, I mean being so structured and regimented is what got you to the dance, but it's also what burt you out. You know, not saying for you, but that's, yeah, that's what can happen, for sure. I think the moral of this conversation, or will be getting at it it, is there's two. The first first moral is rook. Whenever you're looking at a problem or whenever you're trying to fix something, I mean it got kind of all runs up, like works together. When are you trying to fix something? Whenever we're trying to fix something yourself, whenever we try to fix a social problem, look at the root. And how can you, you know, fix the bit, the basically, how can you fix the, you know, base of something that will actually, you know, create, create this you know, create this better word for everyone and for yourself, and you can become what you want to. And same thing with like and you don't know. And to fix a problem doesn't necessarily mean has to be a stravagant. That's that's that's the message. What I'm trying to I think, get at se same thing with it does it doesn't have to be a stravagant. Just take away your options. Just take away all your option. Leave yourself with only one option, is the one that you think and you know, because you want to be motivated. Just do it when you're motivated and then just take away all your other options, you know, using that's an example as what you think about you. Yeah, yeah, and that's another makes perfect sense because, like in that fad setting is something that struck to my mind when you brought it up just then. Was it's like a becomes a social thing. So you go out and you might see this person only once when you're going out, but then you're going out to aid and have a few drinks and everything's great. But then you kind of become enable as a little bit because, like your cont like then you're all is continuing to go down that power of going out, having a few drinks, having something to eat, saying that person having good time, and then it's like we need to do that again. That's only time we're going to see each other, and that's something that we all needs work on a little bit. Like I certainly have friends at the only time you can get him out there is when bees are involved or something like that. So that's a little bit of a hard decision that at first is to limit time you spend with other people, because often times it's that social element that forces you to do things. But it doesn't mean you give it up forever. It just means like maybe for the first little bit I have to limit to once a week, because otherwise I'm just not going to I know that I can't really stop eating when I go out or I know that one beaters into ten ball. That's fine it just don't get too crazy with it. That's fine. Just realize what it is. What it is and be grown up. And I can only really do this once a week because it's fucking I was just too much. You can't. That's what a lot of people think about with dining or I can do all this good work during the week and then on the weekend I can let go. But the body doesn't work like that. The body doesn't forget. The body reacts to what you do to it every day. So if you drive it off the road for two days, it doesn't just come back on the highway and charge back on. It takes some time to recover and then it's in that halfway time like after a big bender. Not Fuck, I've not have a bed this here. After get into the backs of the boys before days that after, you know, after say like having a night out, having a Sunday Sessi, or so they having a few a Barbie and a few bees, it's the Monday or Tuesday afterwards where you get in trouble because you're kind of you're a little bit you're recovering from that. So you're not firing and all Celin News. You might be a little bit down and then it's like our shit now and need eat more whatever else to make myself feel better. So, even though you're just doing something once or twice a week, I's just a weekend, bro it's just a weekend. It generally isn't right. It generally isn't it. Yeah, it's that's exactly right. It's not. It's never is, because then they just starts a whole new loop and then it just keeps on continue and it's you know, it's like Dominos, or don't Dominos, what they call those things that fall over. Domino is the donor EF fect. That's that's that's all it is, and it's so fascinating. How and...

...the thing is, you're got to remember what's important and you got to that's why you got to decide and your right like you know, you might have to cut out some friends, and that's a talking about monk, I think that, my that might be the the world of the day. Right. Talking about monks, I mean they practice celibacy. They don't do it. They don't practice celibacy while living with six women. They just go live in the months by themselves. That's right. Yeah, that's what I'm saying. Right. You've a sweaty man with bout it, a swelling, right, that's exactly right. And it's like, you know, and you know, one of my one of my friend, talks about he went to the Meditational rootreat, retreat right, and they said they weren't allowed phones, they were given like a plank for a pillow. There was nothing else to do but meditate right for three days, and I thought it was incredible. It's like that makes someone sense, because you take away options and you left with what you want, what you truly desire. And you got to remember me. The thing is, there's nothing wrong with just getting drunk with your friends, but the question is, is that what you want to do? If that's what you want to do, if that's what you want you rest of life, rest of your life to be, then by all means do it, because it's all about what's important to you. You know, if it's if it's that, if that's important, do you do that debt by own definitely. Don't, you know, jump on a diet that is, you know, restrict yourself, because it only because to me, fitness means a lot to. You may not like not you lock them, but I'm saying that experts and right, Yep, just like, just like that to me, just like me. To me, for example, you know surfing doesn't mean much, right. You Know, I'll skip surfing anyday of the week to go, let's if I'm saving. I would never write. Well, haven't got surfing in, haven't gone serving yet, so to speak. But what I'm saying if I like surfing, if I was good, but it clearly doesn't mean that much to me, I'll keep it before anything else. Yeah, that's right, that's right. That's what's important to you. You understand it. Yeah, that's right. Yeah, it's reasonating there with you. And that's a good example, because it doesn't mean something. But then there's other people, like where I live, particularly up here, is got a massive surfing saying, and the boys will be out there if it's bloody hailing reigning in the middle of the day, although they'll be there no matter what. Will they love it? So I doesn't really matter. They just get used to it. And it's the same with exercise, like if it's not really your thing, well, you know it's going to have to be something that's difficult to do, but just limit it a couple of times a week. What you're going to do if you try to go and then, say, five days, you know, back and bench and now, yeah, that's it doesn't work, and that's what it isn't going back a little bit because I really like the point you made about the going out partying in that sort of thing, like it's generally the way a lot of people get caught up in. Is the like the feeling you get when you're on a you know, on a high from spending time with your friends and everything's all good. It's that's actually what you want to live your life and it's not actually the drinking that becomes something you have to do in order to reach that stage, and that's where that becomes dangerous. And that's where the danger is in every time needing to spend time with someone in needs drink, because then, yeah, yeah, then that becomes almost more important than the time you spend together. So it's something a little bit to think about and I know there's definitely people out there, because I was one of those people, probably still am, and a lot of people don't really really understand that about someone. And then you kind of take that down. It's like, well, that's kind of true, and it's not because that person is a bad person, it's just because they're not. We don't really actually have that much in common, apart from the fact that we like to have a few beers for shure of that's for sure, and that's what it is. And I think there's a level of where we listen to our bodies and will like listen to our internal monolog or internal self. Right, we listen to it and we go whole hey, like I want to go heavys or whatnore. But the thing is that our internal self, and you know there's a there's a big thing about everyone talking about these deser you listen to your body, eager listen to that, right. I actually think your body, or your intermself is actually quite full of Shit, right, because let me give you a very recent example. The other day I said I'm going to go for a run, right, and so I chucked on my shoes, I was ready to go and as I was about to walk out of the door, I realized I didn't have a running bells. Like there I put my phone in normally to put me some down, and then my brain goes. Well, I guess this is your sign. You probably shouldn't go for a run. I mean it's slightly it's kind of woundy outside or so. Doesn't your back hurt? You shouldn't got yeah, you could be. You don't want to run without like that monolog literally very clearly went through my head. Right of not going off front and if I had listened to my body, my body clearly told me not fuck off and just stay home, right, and I was like no, well, I went for a run and actually felt better. So it's not always the greatest thing to listen to your body, because it's what it's like. You your inner self. At least listen to your body. If you're like your back is broken down. Yeah, that's right, that's right. You know, don't listen to you don't always. Your inner self could be full of Shit, right. Yeah, and it doesn't know what it's all the power of this resistance generally all that. Yeah, that's and that's yeah, it's unfortunately, that's kind of the way it is. Like your body doesn't want to be constantly adapting and changing. And Yeah, it's. So that's a whole nother that's another interesting thing. As well, like the so that's where it is. Like you may want, and God, drink because that's where you always done. But you know, just ask you, is that truly what you want? Is that what you're in a monog...

...is telling you, because that's what you've always done? And then you probably don't even care about the Experson who you've been drinking with. You just think. Well, like you said, lock on, you guys just don't like like having beers. That's it. There's nothing else. You guys have been common. So I think that's that's important to sort of look at how that sort of space and what you think. Is it really what you believe in? Is that what you really want? Is the question. And it's all about a balance as well. Balance is important. That's thing, like it not making too hard on yourself, because you yeah, but also, yeah, understanding. It's a just confusing. It is confusion. College generally know most of the time deep down if it's right or wrong. They're right, like generally, kind of for sure. Yeah, but when I when I talk about balance, I said, like, for I often see people get so excited about the gym or fitness right. They said, like the first week they might treat like seven days straight. We've done that right days you train the seven days straight. You eat your you know, you may, you wait, made totally four meals for every minute of the day and you've got like, you know, killed Jules mapped out and how much was that Graham of tuna in that? Because you're going to heat that to make up your macros. The problem with that is that doesn't last. That's gonna like it. That's going to last about a week. That's exactly what it will and same thing other day. You know, you go hey, like, I'm going to go to the gym once a month. Well, that's also useless. Was Not going to be fair to good to find the balance. You know, passion is hot, like I think people get a hard passionate about fit as so like most of the time, you know, passions. have been really thinking a lot about like passion is a fool starr, because you know, you think about actually been reading this book called Meditations of Meditations of let meet you. The book's name. It's a brilliant, brilliant book, basically talking about like animals right when they gotta get up. You don't anymal doesn't get up in the morning. You Go. Are Much staying for a better in the bed for a bit. I might not go chase gazelle. You know, I just lay here for a bit because, you know, I'm tired today. It's too cold. So it's just those kind of things. You realize that we just think all we need that motivation. Not really is. It's I think sometimes it's just depends up how much you need to do something. It's called meditations of Marcus a rally of relics, a realist. It's a brilliants an old book. He's the author. Yeah, I think it's old, old book all the time, from socrates. It's all the philosophy book, Modern Library Meditations on Marcus a realists. Yeah, I don't know, but it would. Basically it's all about discipline and how like, you know, often how you feel, finding the balance as well. And he talks about being the person who is no, yeah, no, super ecstatic about the slighter smallest of the thing, and also the person who just carries like a constant sadness on their phone for base when not reason. Yeah, yeah, they Yah things affect themselves to negatively and positively, because you want to ride that high out. But then there comes that crash. That's that's socially, isn't it? I think we've far on some really important things about some point at things in both our lives and some things we can all do, certainly us included, to kind of navigate the the world we live in now and certainly the future, like unquestionably the exactly to be the same again. But no one really wanted that anyway when it was pretty sick of a lot of shit. When they might. So sometimes you, yeah, sometimes you be careful to you I wish for because you just might get it. A yeah, that's IT, beautiful product. All right, mat that was a very good one. Yeah, thank you, dude. What it's a good I have. Can People in check out that might?

So yeah, thank you guys all so much. Anything else you wanted to add? My friend know. That's it and I just want to I do want to add this thing. That's that's what I do. What I had this think.
