Has anyone ever given you a big slap in the face? Not a real one of course, but said something to you that made you think “Wow, I needed that”. Well a guy who I don’t know just did that. His name is Johnny B Truant.
Through an email I received, I ended up linking to this guys blog and downloaded a Kindle book that he had written. Boy did I sit up and take notice. Excuse the words in this and close your kid’s eyes, the book is called The Universe Doesn’t Give a Flying Fuck About You. It is based on the blog post “The Universe Doesn’t Give a Flying Fuck About You” on http://johnnybtruant.com/ that caused a serious stir in the online world. Until our worlds collided, I didn’t understand why.
It takes about 15 minutes to read and if you take it onboard, the content will change your life.
The book has a lot to do with Dreamlines and Dreamlining. Many of the case studies in Tim Ferriss’s book “The Four Hour Work Week” talk about the things that change their view on the world, and in some cases it can mean staring death in the face. It might be a little morbid, but often we need a wakeup call to remind us that we are in fact mortal.
Go ahead and read the blog post (and even The Four Hour Work Week), and then let me know what you think in the comments.
