For Paid To Exist Readers Only — Fear, Minimalism, and Free Plane Tickets

Sometimes you think you’re driving the elephant, but really the elephant is driving you.

And everything that you’ve heard about willpower, about success—it might all be wrong.

While studying social psychology at Stanford, I found myself unable to finish a particular project on time. My project, ironically, involved procrastination.

So I delved deeply into the literature and discovered that what we think we know about fear, goal setting and willpower is backwards.

We don’t need to use willpower. Instead, we need to build systems that force ourselves to succeed—without any possibility of failure.

Just for readers of the Paid To Exist, I’ve prepared a seriously substantial gift. You’re going to get a collection of my best resources to fighting fears and building successful habits. Just enter in your email address below to get the first gift, How to Fight Fear through Systems.
