Just in case you didn’t know, a “myth” is a story or a belief that isn’t true or at least isn’t proven. Anyway…..
Add and I were walking to some local Chinese shop today to buy something for Add’s shower. The sales woman had 3 similar products with different prices. She said something interesting that got me thinking.

Here I am, Shanghai 2:25 am on a Tuesday morning. I either can’t sleep or I don’t really want to, I’m not quite sure which it is at the moment. I don’t really care either. I’m quite happy to be blogging again.

I wanted to recommend one of the best authors I’ve read lately and a couple of his books. I don’t know him personally and I won’t make any money off book sales. I just want to recommend him because I think you’ll enjoy his work. Some of it’s free anyway.
The guy is “Seth Godin” and he writes a lot of books. A few ones that I personally liked were “Purple Cow“, “Permission Marketing” and “Tribes“. They are interesting and fresh. You can easily see this guy is smart and can think for himself.

It’s funny that I’m writing this because I’m a notoriously impatient person. I want results and I want them NOW! I wish that patience wasn’t such an important life skill, but I have to face the reality that it really is.
We all naturally want quick results when we do something. We want to know if something is working or if we are just wasting our time and energy. We all know that consistently going to the gym will make us healthy, but we also know that the results come AFTER the hard work. It’s why we like sugar and junk food even though we know it’s not good for us. The good results from junk food come immediately. Chocolate tastes good while you are eating it and you get fat and unhealthy later. Any normal bad habit is like this, the benefits come immediately and the consequences take much longer to show up.
