Here’s a good litmus test for your information diet.
The stuff you’re reading…would it be worth printing? Just for yourself. A few sheets. Would it be worth the ink and paper and staples? Would you put it in your bookcase for future reference? To show other people?
If not….you should probably just close that tab and put that attention and focus on something else.
Saturday morning here in Brick&Mortar Land, 9:14am. Got off work at midnight (afternoon shift), drove home, and unbeknownst to me there was a house party, at my house! Well, our house. I love this jumbo house.
Full of dogs and funny dudes 24/7.
So I had a couple beers, then we ran out of beer though. So we finished off the bottle of Moonshine. I only had three shots of moonshine and the bottle was done.
But every weekend, by 9am at the absolute latest the coffee is brewing and I’m here writing. Drinking hot black coffee with a couple ice cubes in it.
To be totally fair, that cup I just finished isn’t Red Supplements Coffee. It’s just cheap Folgers from the grocery store. I will order the Red Supplements Coffee sometime soon though. Reading Victor Pride has gotten me out of bed and off my ass so many times you’d think his words were coffee.
Anyways, where the heck am I going with this?
Over the years, there have been a few articles from a few different websites that I would revisit. One of which is the Planet of Success article about going 30 days without the internet.
But to read that article, I’d have to unlock mobicip and Bing the right keywords to find it. That’s the catch-22 of NoSurf blogs and writing about internet addiction.
What’s NoSurf idea #1? Just print it out bro!
I was going on B&D a few times a week to check out Serge Nubret’s old school bodybuilding routine. It’s a good routine! So I’d check it and write the sets, reps, and exercises on a piece of lined paper. Then I’d fold it up and stick it in my pocket to check while I worked out.
But why not just print the dang thing? Way easier. And unlike 90% of the content online, it’s actually worth the paper and ink. Great litmus test for your information diet.
Yesterday I just tossed it in my gym bag and away I went to the gains factory.
Have fun out there in Brick&Mortar Land,
Keep that momentum red hot,
