In Defense of My Podcast Obsession

I’m not the only guy on the planet obsessed with Podcasts. It’s entirely possible that I spend, at a minimum, listening to 10-hours worth each week. It’s also possible I’m lying about that number so when my wife, boss, or Dad reads this they…

Things I’m Doing

Reading:  I listened to a Podcast over the weekend and heard about the book Radical Acceptance: Embracing Your Life With the Heart of a Buddha, which I thought sounding quite interesting. The Podcast (by Tim Ferriss) was talking about making yourself your “best friend” and …I…

It’s Never a Bad Morning with Wisdom from Tim Ferriss

I’m calling the next 6-months the “Don Improvement Project.” I’m gonna try the “get better by 1% each day” approach, and today started with actually  getting out of bed when I wake up, versus laying their and doing nothing. If I can’t go back to…

5-Minute Blogging – What Is the Impossible Dream?

7:48 a.m. – Start I wonder if I should take my 5-Minute morning blogging to Tumblr or Medium because I want this blog to be about me, my birthday, and to be a place where I post my more polished and finished writing projects? Because, what…

Mel Robbins Says, “Stop Screwing Yourself”

On the way to work, I try to listen to something inspiring. Today I listened to Tim Ferriss‘s Podcast from April 27th called “Zero to Hero Transformations.” I learned I need to watch less TV and read more. Here’s my reading list for May….

Fear, Loathing, Hesitation, and Whining

I’m not a firefighter. I’m not a cop. I’m not serving in our military and I’m not deployed to a war zone. I’m not a tight-rope walker. Why do I bring this up? I listened to Tim Ferriss’s recent Podcast titled, “How to Overcome…

This Blog Doesn’t Look Good

This blog doesn’t look very good. I tell people, “oh, hey, I’m a blogger, and a freelance ghost-writer, and social media expert,” and I can’t imagine what they think if they come to my blog. They see a grey, lifeless layout without much content,…

Bulletproof Coffee

“Gee. Don never drinks bulletproof coffee at home.” About a month ago, awesome-guy Tim Ferriss posted a video of his power coffee recipe and I thought to myself, “no, Don. You’ve got to draw the line somewhere, or you’ll be dangerously close to becoming…

An Experiment. Subscribe to my #TheBachelorette Newsletter

At the urging of someone in a podcast (specifically Tim Ferriss’s podcast where he interviewed Noah Kagan), I’m conducting an experiment. Actually, it’s more than an experiment. I’m starting a newsletter about #TheBachelorette. To subscribe, email me at donkowalewski@gmail.com, subject: Bachelorette or leave a…

Ice Shower? Yes. Seriously.

Every morning when I turn on my shower, I turn on only the cold-water. Nope. I don’t even turn on the hot at all. I’m not doing luke-warm. I’m doing ice cold. I gave up “hot showers” for Lent. Why? Because I’m crazy. And,…

I Do What Tim Ferriss Says

Because I do whatever Tim Ferriss says in his podcasts, I ordered the Mizzen+Main “Beckett” blue gingham dress shirt and used promo code ‘TIM’ and got a Henley shirt for free. And I knew I was responding to an ad. I knew it. I know…

1 Month Down, 11 To Go, and 1 Thing

I don’t mean to freak anyone out (namely myself), but we’ve already burned a month in 2015. Did you make resolutions? I sure did. And how much closer am I to all those things I put on my New Year’s Resolution list than I…
