Fear-Setting by Tim Ferriss
Hi, . Your big decision is: Take my first vacation in 4 years
@When I get to London, it will be rainy and foggy. I will get depressed.
@I'll miss a letter from the IRS, since I won't be working on my business.
Worst-Case Average Impact Score: How you plan to PREVENT them: Bring a portable blue light with me to decrease depression. Change the mailing address on file with the IRS. And ways you can REPAIR any potential damage: Fly to Spain, get some sun, and reverse some of the damage from the gloominess. Call a friend who is a lawyer to see what they would recommend I do. Benefits of taking action You've identified benefits:
@Gaining an understanding of a new culture
@Not having to rely on supplements or drugs to stay awake or go to sleep
@No more phone calls about my business
@Meeting new people every day I wouldn't otherwise meet
😀 Benefits Average Impact Score: I won't be able to travel for a wedding. My business will continue to grow, which will require me to work 10 more hours per week I'll get sick from all the stimulants I'm taking to stay awake for work and from all the depressants to go to sleep. I'll become a bottleneck in my business, and it will fail. I still won't have settled down because I can't keep a relationship. I'll repeat my failures in other businesses. Some final parting words from a great modern Stoic: "Easy choices, hard life. Hard choices, easy life."
