Octavia Butler on How (Not) to Choose Our Leaders

In 1845, as the forgotten visionary Margaret Fuller was laying the foundation of modern feminism, advocating for black voting rights, and insisting that “while any one is base, none can be entirely free and noble,” she contemplated what makes a great leader and called for “no thin Idealist, no coarse Realist,” for a person “of universal sympathies, but self-possessed,” one for whom “this world is no mere spectacle or fleeting shadow, but a great, solemn game, to be played with good heed, for its stakes are of eternal value.” But how does a nation, a society, a world concerned with more than the shadowy spectacles of the present identify and elect such leaders to shape the long future? A century and a half after Fuller, Octavia Butler (June 22, 1947–February 24, 2006) — another rare v...

Books I’ve Loved — Whitney Cummings (#454)

Photo by Troy Conrad | Instagram: @troyconradsWelcome to another episode of The Tim Ferriss Show, where it is my job to sit down with world-class performers of all different types—from startup founders and investors to chess champions to Olympic athletes. This episode, however, is an experiment and part of a shorter series I’m doing called “Books I’ve Loved.” I’ve invited some amazing past guests, close friends, and new faces to share their favorite books—the books that have influenced them, changed them, and transformed them for the better. I hope you pick up one or two new mentors—in the form of books—from this new series and apply the lessons in your own life. Whitney Cummings (@whitneycummings) is a Los Angeles-based comedian, actor, writer, and producer. She has appeared in mu...

How Each Zodiac Sign Is Secretly A Kid At Heart

Aries Your favorite types of books to read are YA — and all your favorite music is the music you listened to when you were younger. Taurus Disney is your favorite place on the planet. There’s nowhere else you would rather be. Gemini You hate dinner dates. You would rather go to a trampoline park or bowling alley or mini-golf course. Cancer You still watch cartoons. You feel comforted by them.Transforming Self-Sabotage Into Self MasteryFor centuries, the mountain has been used as a metaphor for the big challenges we face, especially ones that seem impossible to overcome. To scale our mountains, we actually have to do the deep internal work of excavating trauma, building resilience, and adjusting how we show up for the climb. In the end, it is not the mount...

30 Unsolved Mysteries From The Early Days Of The Internet

A few people from Ask Reddit are still wondering about unsolved mysteries from the early days of the internet. 1. I remember that extremely creepy video of a young guy with longish hair and a very unique way of speaking (I think it was a combination of accent and speech impediment) talking about grave robbing and how to prep the remains for sale. I remember specifically him going into great detail into how to properly clean out the skulls so they wouldn’t rattle when you shook them. Nobody ever came up with an identity, location, or even a solid answer for who was buying the human remains or why. Anyway, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it for a long time, because last year a man where I live was arrested for doing the exact same thing. He was d...

6 Reasons You Should Never Get Too Attached To An Aries

1. We have a reputation for being selfish. We don’t actually consider ourselves selfish because we will always go out of our way to help a friend in need. We will always do our best to treat others with kindness. However, we’re going to put ourselves first. We’re going to do what is best for our own physical and mental health. We aren’t going to allow someone toxic to drain us. We aren’t going to sacrifice our own happiness to please someone else. We know what we deserve and we won’t settle for less. 2. We have a pretty intense temper. You aren’t going to get away with screwing us over. If you hurt us, then you’re going to feel our wrath. We’re going to put you in your place. We’re going to curse you out. We’re going to get revenge. Although we might forg...

These are a few of the experiences you might have right before a massive shift takes place. 1. You’ll start to phase out of denial. When we’re really stuck in life, denial is the shield we use to protect ourselves from the panic of acknowledging everything that’s wrong because we don’t yet have the confidence to believe we can fix it. When we’re approaching a big life change, what we’re really co...
