What a week.
As most of us know, Monday was April Fools Day.
You know, April 1st, the same as last year?
So I decided to play a little joke on you guys by pulling a prank — and I told you that Hack The System was shutting down FOREVER.
Now, let’s back up for a second: HtS will always be a place to share ideas and experiment with unconventional ways of viewing the world. I don’t claim to be an expert — but I do try many approaches to living an extraordinary life, and I report my findings back to you.
Whether that means getting slapped in the face to increase my productivity…
Or showing you how to break into networks…
Or helping you create positive behavior change.
Basically, I’m your guinea pig — and I’m here to solve problems so that you don’t have to.
But sometimes, it’s good to have a little fun. Not every article I share with you has to be serious and life-changing.
So on Monday morning, I was chuckling as I pressed “publish” on my attempt at April Fools humor. I sat back with anticipation to see how many people would get the joke.
My readers are smart. 98% of you got the joke.
The post got dozens of comments like these that made me smile:
There were also some weird ones that I’ll just assume were compliments….(?)
Don’t hurt yourself, man.
But check this out…some people really DIDN’T get the humor:
Sorry for ruining your day. Please don’t corner me in a dark alley.
To everyone who enjoyed the joke — I LOVE YOU GUYS!
And, since Hack The System isn’t shutting down after all, I wanted to give you a little preview of what to expect for the rest of the year. Here are 3 things to look forward to:
1.) More experiments traveling the world, getting in better shape and making money
If you’ve liked reading Hack The System for the past 2 years, the rest of 2014 will be the best yet. I have some incredible experiments to share with you that I’ll reveal very soon. Stay tuned for those.
2.) The launch of Pavlok
If you’ve been keeping up, you know that I’ve been working hard in Boston to breathe life into my newest venture, Pavlok — the only wearable device that not only tracks your habits, but actually helps you change your behavior.
3.) The release of an all new course on building a location independent business
For years, I’ve been writing about how to live and work from anywhere in the world — and I’ve showed you time and time again how I’ve done it.
And every week, I get dozens of emails asking me to break down my process:
- How do I create a business that will allow me to travel freely?
- How do I meet interesting people and start fun side projects all over the world without worrying about money?
- Is there a way to get the process started quickly?
Although I’ve written a lot of material on the subject — I realized that there was really no comprehensive, “all-in-one” framework to teach the process step-by-step. So I’ve decided to build it for you.
I’ll tell you more about that later, but for now, if you’re interested in getting behind-the-scenes updates about the course before it comes out, let me know by signing up below.
