Do you want to be rich and famous?
If you want to be more useful, you should.
These directives for how to be useful were distilled from books by my mentor Derek Sivers:
1. Get famous.
Do everything in public and for the public. The more people you reach, the more useful you are. The opposite is hiding, which is of no use to anyone.
2. Get rich.
Money is neutral proof you’re adding value to people’s lives.
So, by getting rich, you’re being useful as a side-effect.
Once rich, spend the money in ways that are even more useful to others.
Then getting rich is double-useful.
3. Share strong opinions.
Strong opinions are very useful to others.
Those who were undecided or ambivalent can just adopt your stance.
But those who disagree can solidify their stance by arguing against yours.
Even if you invent an opinion for the sole sake of argument, boldly sharing a strong opinion is very useful to others.
4. Be expensive.
People given a placebo pill were twice as likely to have their pain disappear when told the pill was expensive.
People who paid more for tickets were more likely to attend the performance.
People who spend more for a product or service value it more, and get more use out of it.
Back on skis yesterday, totally the case where memories are better than the video lol. Warm up laps to Garbage Chutes to Back Door pow (gopro angled way low), and what a day, some shredders were hucking cliffs in November (crappy phone captures) #shredssv#sunshinevillage
That chair lift was just opening for the season, I only got fourth chair because I forgot my goggles... and had to buy on the hill... "as if this is my first run of the season"
Gotta give a big shout out to the Sunshine Village trail crew. So much respect for the guys & gals who make all the rad turns at Ski hills happen with strategic snow fencing and summer slashing. Saw them work in windy blowing snow all weekend, while we enjoyed fresh turns 😬, thanks y'all... #respect#ssvtrailcrew#sunshinevillage#hardwork#goplay
Ski up up up.... I'm not fast, I won't win races, but skiing uphill makes me happy. I can forget the endless toddler tantrums, the stress over where to send the kids to school, career stress, life stress..... I put one foot in front of the other, heart pounding and I go up the hill. Sometimes as fast as I can and other times at a happy pace. I LOVE to ski uphill. #skiuphill#sunshinevillage#valhallakingdom#banffnationalpark#skialberta#canadianskimogirls
