New Vegan Retail Store in Toronto
A new vegan retail store just opened in Toronto. It’s called The Imperative and sells vegan clothes, shoes, cosmetics, and more. Wonderful! I like the greeting card that says, Congrats on living this long with a protein deficiency! 🙂 Next month is my 20-year veganniversary. Still waiting for that protein deficiency to kick in… I wonder how many people are still brainwashed enough to believe that these days. (Source: Steve Pavlina's Personal Development Blog)

Solving Problems by Blaming Others
Many times when people get stuck working on some aspect of their personal growth, it’s because they’ve defined their core problem in a way that it can’t really be solved. One of the most common forms of this is when someone defines their problem as a mental or psychological one. I see this all the time from people trying to overcome procrastination. They usually define the problem as a lack of motivation, drive, self-discipline, passion, etc. Sometimes they see it as a lack of clarity or focus. Other times it’s succumbing to too many distractions. But ultimately they believe that the source of their...

Music Complete
Why the heck didn’t anyone tell me that New Order came out with a new album last year? I just found out this week. I suppose that’s what I get for ditching social media. It’s called Music Complete.

I’m listening to the latter now while reading through a few hundred emails related to my last blog post on turning weaknesses into strengths. Both albums are really good!

Turning Weaknesses Into Strengths
Some of my most rewarding personal growth explorations have involved turning weaknesses into strengths. Nothing proves to me the value of investing in personal growth more than reflecting upon a strength I can leverage with ease and remembering what my life used to be like when I was weak, timid, ignorant, incompetent, or powerless in that same area. Some skills that I regularly apply today used to be personal weaknesses, especially writing and speaking. I wasn’t naturally good at those skills when I was younger – just the opposite.

Setting Up a Video Recording Studio
I’m working on setting up a basic home video recording studio, so I can create and share more videos with you. While I’ve done lots of speaking with live audiences, I’m fairly inexperienced when it comes to making videos, so I took a few days to research the heck out of this in my usual deep dive fashion. I found no shortage of opinions on the subject, especially when I asked experienced friends for suggestions. I’ve learned enough to get started, but it’s also clear that I’ll need to learn most of this by diving in, taking action, and iterating based on results and feedback. I found the...

30 Days of Disneyland – Day 30
On Day 30 (Wednesday), Rachelle and I decided to finish strong, so we spent a full 16 hours at Disneyland. I was really tired at the end, but it felt good to finally cross the finish line. The next morning (Thursday) we met a friend for breakfast at Whole Foods and then drove home to Vegas. I was delighted to see the lights of the Vegas Strip as we came in, knowing that those lights weren’t the lights of Disneyland. During the last 4-5 days of the experiment, I got a cold, and I’m still recovering from it. That’s why I didn’t post any new blog entries during the last week. Fortunately the illness wa...

30 Days of Disneyland – Day 21
Since experiencing Disneyland from the objective perspective has grown stale, lately I’ve been viewing it through the subjective lens and pondering the events there more symbolically. When I do this, I usually pay attention to whatever seems to stand out in my mind. Broken Systems In the past few days, Rachelle and I have encountered a lot of rides breaking down. At one point yesterday, it seemed like almost half of the rides at the California Adventure park were non-operational. Maybe the holiday weekend strained their systems more than usual.

30 Days of Disneyland – Day 20
I really enjoyed our 20th day at Disneyland yesterday (Sunday). Rachelle and I had a lot of fun together, especially in the evening when we cracked up laughing while making some silly videos. I didn’t enjoy the experience nearly as much on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday though. I thought about why I enjoy the experience so much more on some days vs. other days. This was a holiday weekend, and the crowds on Thursday through Saturday were the biggest I’ve seen during this whole experience so far. On those days both parks were packed with people everywhere, and wait times for the popular rides often landed in the ...

We’re finally past the halfway mark. It seems like ages ago that we started this experiment, as if we’ve been living at Disneyland for a month already. Astro Blasters I further optimized my Astro Blasters’ strategy, which allowed me to blow away my previous best and score 762,500 points a couple of days ago. When I got this score, I rode alone in the two-person vehicle instead of with Rachelle, so I didn’t have to worry about her being in the way of any shots, and there was no conflict over which way to rotate the vehicle (either player can rotate it clockwise or counterclockwise).

30 Days of Disneyland – Day 14
We finished two weeks at Disneyland so far. I certainly feel it in my body with some stiffness due to all the walking and rides, although stretching helps a lot with that. In the past week, we walked more than 75 miles, so we averaged a little more than 10.5 miles per day. We’re still doing intermittent fasting, although not every day. Most days we don’t have our first meal till the afternoon, but on a couple of days we went to Whole Foods for breakfast, partly just to have some healthier, non-Disney meals. I still haven’t spotted the word organic at Disneyland yet. Rides have been breaking down a lot lat...

30 Days of Disneyland – Day 11
The days are starting to blur together, as if it’s one continuous stream of Disneyland that never ends. Sometimes it’s hard to remember what we did for the past week and a half. I think that’s because my focus is so rooted in the present moment. I’m surprised that we haven’t gotten completely bored with going on rides yet, but even after 11 days, we still haven’t gone on every ride yet, seen all the shows, or done all the possible activities. With two theme parks to oscillate between, there’s just a lot to see and do. Yesterday we went on several rides we hadn’t gone on yet, ...

30 Days of Disneyland – Day 10
It’s hard to believe we’ve already finished 10 days in a row at Disneyland. Looking back it seems like such a whirlwind of activity. For the past two days, we spent time hanging out with other people at the park – two people on Wednesday and one on Thursday. The social aspect was a nice change of pace. On a typical day, we’re spending about 11 hours at Disneyland. Yesterday we walked 12.2 miles, so the mileage adds up too. Overall we’re doing a good job of pacing ourselves. All the jarring from the rides can create a lot of tension in the body, especially in the back and shoulders, so doing ju...

30 Days of Disneyland – Day 8
Our eighth day at Disneyland yesterday was pleasant and fun, especially because the crowds were much lighter. Around the third or fourth day, I was having doubts about my ability to enjoy this experiment. With so many days left, it seemed like an endurance challenge. I was worried that I’d get bored of it quickly and regret taking on this challenge. But after finishing eight days there, I’m feeling pretty good about this challenge. I feel there’s an odd intelligence to this that I’m not fully grasping yet, like somehow it will turn out to be a much wiser idea than I could have predicted. I can feel ...

Rachelle and I made it through our first weekend of Disneyland, which reminded me of why I never visit Disneyland on weekends. It was massively crowded on Saturday and Sunday, and the combination of the noise and crowds felt oppressive sometimes. It was an endurance challenge, but we made it through okay. I felt sorry for anyone who had their first visit to Disneyland on that weekend because I don’t think they got their money’s worth. Wait times for the popular rides were often more than an hour. The Haunted Mansion ride had a 120-minute wait at one point. It’s decorated with a Nightmare Before Christmas ...

Yesterday was a long and tiring fourth day at Disneyland. It was very crowded the whole day, and we spent about 12-1/2 hours there. We still had a fun time, especially since we’re pros with the Fastpass system (which lets us bypass many lines), but at the end of the day, I’d had my fill of the crowds and the noise. Navigating through hordes of people all day long made my brain want to shut down afterwards. We did our second day of intermittent fasting yesterday too, eating only between 12:30 and 8:30pm. I’m not sure if we’ll eat this way every day, but I like it so far. I slept well last night, albe...

Our third day at Disneyland was the most fun so far. The morning was a bit sluggish, but later in the day we got into the flow of just enjoying ourselves. We stayed until the park closed at 9pm, then strolled around and browsed through the shops for another 80 minutes before finally leaving for the day. Being around so many people who are having fun becomes a bit infectious after a while. We’re only 10% of the way through this experience, and I’m actually looking forward to the remaining 90%.

Day 2 at Disneyland was easier and lighter than Day 1. I did a better job of surrendering to this 30-day experiment, and I felt much less resistance to it. It was also a shorter day and less crowded at the park, especially in the morning. Rachelle and I only spent about 9 hours there, left shortly after 6pm, and had a nice dinner at Vegan Pizza nearby.

30 Days of Disneyland – Day 1
Yesterday Rachelle and I spent the first day of our 30-day experience at Disneyland, roughly from about 9am to 9pm. As we drove from our AirBnb to the park through the remnants of rush hour traffic, I joked with Rachelle that we were commuting to work or school. It’s been a long time since I had that feeling of being a part of society that does this every day. Since the experience seemed novel at this time, it felt mildly stimulating. What I noticed right away was the total lack of urgency to do anything in particular. It felt like we had a ridiculous amount of time ahead of us to do whatever we wanted many times ove...
