The 4 am Daily Program

Season 4 of the 4 am Daily is ongoing. Basically, it is all about waking up every day at 4 am for 6 weeks and learn something. Participants are evicted when they miss thrice. This program is built on the psychological fact that, if you do something consistently for >21 days you will build a new habit and doing it with a peer support system enforces that habit.

10 thoughts keeping me awake in November

These are the things running through my mind a lot lately: You can learn anything possible, what is difficult to have is the motivation. A growth mindset is the driver of accelerated learning. There is always so much you don’t have a clue about that can illuminate and improve your next decision - find it.Humans are just more rational apes rationalizing their irrationality.
