Podcast Notes Key Takeaways There is evidence that humans are dreaming less often less vividly and experiencing less neuronal growth during sleep This is correlated with increased amounts of screen time leading to the hypothesis that whatever you watch on screens is accepted as your own thought processes and so your thinking is done for you Five core life skills according to Naval:ReadingWritingTalkingArithmeticLogicThe standardized method of education we use worked well during the Industrial Era, but we live in a completely different society now and education should change to reflect what is needed todayBen encourages exercise by natural, animal-like movement A criticism of just working out at the gym is that it only makes you effective at certain mechanical motions and doesn’t translate into real-world fitness or even longevity“I think that having that single, succinct purpose statement for your life is actually something that is important because that’s what gets you out of bed in the morning, right? In Japan, they call it ikigai. In Sardinia, they call it the plan de vida, like the plan for your life, this idea that when you wake up in the morning, you know what it is that you’re going to do with the life that God has given you.” – Ben Greenfield“A man is free to choose his attitude no matter what circumstances he is given in life”Many people have wasted their lockdowns binging Netflix or mindlessly scrolling social media while others have pursued productive endeavors Read the full notes @ podcastnotes.orgRiver and Terran Greenfield are my twin 12 year old sons.
