Everyday Systems #49: State of the Systems 2016 (Physical)
It's been 14 years now since everyday systems first went online in 2002.
And I think that significant anniversary deserves some kind of acknowledgement.
So I think what I'm going to do to observe this is give a kind of "state of the systems" check-in episode, a brief tour of how all the everyday systems are still working for me, -- whether they're still working for me -- how I notice they're working for other people, and any additional insights I might have about them
It feels bizarre that the advice of a random stranger has been so influential on me since I stumbled upon Reinhard’s advice around 2011. The transparent, long-term, real world accountability of Reinhard’s advice makes it appealing.
Things like “Lawful good biker” and the No-S Diet have served me well. I wish I hadn’t been a Shovelglove skeptic for as long as I was.
Grateful to him for “putting himself out there” over the years.
Great life coach
Reinhard Engel is a great life coach. Start by reading The No S book and move to the podcasts
This is actually one of my favorite podcasts. Excited that there was a new episode in 2020!
