“By popular demand” is such a schtick.
Reminds me of outrageous claims and promises that are so silly they're funny.
Remember the Old School Ronco TV commercial that promises “set it and forget it” cooking products?
Lots of personal development books promise buying their product will change your life…and they can, if you actually work the processes.
Because of you — on Twitter or via the previous newsletter edition from a couple of weeks ago — I get to say:
“I’m hosting a workshop — by popular demand!”
So, thanks so much for the great feedback and encouragement.
It’s wild how such a simple little practice I started several years ago has been so helpful.

Becoming a better human being begins with a decision, followed by a string of moment-to-moment choices over time.
I won’t promise writing a note to your next day self will change your life or “fix” you.
Heck, I’ve been doing this drill since 2015, and I’m certainly not fixed. But I am making progress, as are many people who have stopped to thank me the past three years for sharing my little ritual.
Hope you can come hang out with me on Thursday.
P. S. Getting to know people all over the world is so much fun. Thought I'd share recent favorite articles from 3 of my favorite friends. Like, genuinely. They're part of my online tribe.

Matt Ragland's Saturday newsletter is a must-read for me. He's one of my first "online friends." I love getting to work with him and his team!
