In TBBland, we like to go slower in the weekends. Get away from the miles and points madness and stuff like that…Generally stick to some material that made a hell of an impression on me and I thought I would share it with you. My main criterion, since Day Uno, has been: Does it Entertain? Educate? Or Inspire?

If you consider yourself a Chris Rock fan, this is a must read. Even if you are not. The guy talks about his life and lessons along the way. On marriage, his daughters, success, hard work, talent, aging, how he got started in show business, everything, I really enjoyed this!
No, this is not the TBB Hollywood star edition! It just happened that the first two links revolved around two of these guys. The one above is more like a cathartic revelation rant by Chris. This is definitely not as Depp is not interviewed. But what stood out for me, wearing my financial planner hat, is the INSANE amounts of money this guy was spending. Like $30,000 for wine per month! The payroll for 40 staff is $3.6 million per year. $150,000 per month on round the clock security. Now he is suing his former managers to discover where $650 million went. Anyways, you read some of this and you can’t help but wonder how lavishly some people live…WTF!
In the boxing world, there is one name that everybody knows. And it is Neil Leifer. You have seen his pictures. You can not escape them. The guy is a living legend. Nobody comes close. Enjoy this awesome piece and of course enjoy his photographs of this brutal sport. I never really understood why beating up another human being can be a sport. Because I am a lover, not a fighter. Lol!
This unique museum is in Sweden. So fascinatingly interesting!
Museum of Failure is a collection of interesting innovation failures. The majority of all innovation projects fail and the museum showcases these failures to provide visitors a fascinating learning experience. The collection consists of over sixty failed products and services from around the world. Every item provides unique insight into the risky business of innovation.
Some good stuff in here. If you are into this touchy feely stuff. I like to read about a variety of topics. And I do it for you. Ok, maybe not. I just read for myself and if I like it I bring it to you. For a moment there I thought this was Daraius on to his next blog venture or something. Anyways, I am losing my train of thought or however this phrase goes. Speaking of US slang, I would never forget the day when I got to the US and I heard “shit hit the fan”…somehow, my dictionary did not make any sense. At all. Lets move on now…
Wealth is just one of many external validations of “success”. We do this all the time when we grasp for better stuff, more prestige, etc. The prizes change, but it’s the same game. We keep hoping that something external will bring us this internal peace that we crave. But happiness, contentment and life satisfaction is a single player game.
I never gave a shit about blog metrics by the way, who is Alexa you guys? 🙂
Start to slowly disengage from these multiplayer games. Start to care a little less about winning them. They don’t matter all that much. It may feel a little lonely and empty at first. We fear quitting the multiplayer games because this reminds us we are truly alone. Single player brings the existential uneasiness of our loneliness into focus, but paradoxically this is where true contentment lives. Nurture and support the internal metrics of happiness for yourself. Lean into and push past the uncomfortable feeling of living a more unconventional life.
And stuff like that…
And I leave you with this…
