HRV - Heart Rate Variability

sit with triggers, realize you’re OK and comfortable with it

The 5 whys - Toyota Way

Byron Katie - 4 questions

The minimalists podcast (and documentary) - does it add value to me
it’s amazing how much you have that doesn’t add any value to your life

Jim Rohn - You’re the product of the 5 people you hang out with the most

Marie Kondo - Spark Joy (minimalism)

perception of truth
ask for feedback to see if you’re emotional intelligent!

I grew up thinking everything is black or white - when it turns out to be mostly grey

giving makes you happier; selfish vs selfless

What areas are you selfless - relationships, work, social
gratitude - fake it until you make it, you become really attractive
abundance - scarcity mindset - time, money, partners, business

Tyler - I walk and read at lunch

Ideas for next meetup:

John: Fitness. Healthy Eating. Track your body/wellness. Genetics.
Ivan: What to do with Quantified Self data
Leo: Social Awareness - How other’s emotions affects us - Find a way to channel it more positively
Tyler: Quantified Self. Ways of applying the things we’re talking about - perhaps accountability partner system.
Jennifer: The more tech we have, the less connected we become as human beings. No one wants to talk to the other.
