A tattoo is basically forever.

You should think pretty hard before you get one, because it’s largely an irreversible decision.

Just about every choice you make with your project and your career, though, doesn’t last forever. And the benefit of taking a risk is significantly higher than it is with a tattoo. A landing page, a pricing move, a bit of copy–they don’t last much more than a day, never mind a lifetime. Higher benefits, lower risk, what are you waiting for?

So go ahead and act as if your decisions are temporary. Because they are. Be bold, make mistakes, learn a lesson and fix what doesn’t work. No sweat, no need to hyperventilate.

5 Podcasts for the fun spiritual seeker

Interesting resources. Beware, for these may well change your perspective!

1. Alan Watts

To exercise economy of words here: the man knew what he was on about. Hinduism, Buddhism, Zen, you name it.

“Alan Wilson Watts (6 January 1915 – 16 November 1973) was a British philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and populariser of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience.”

More on the Alan Watt’s Podcast here.

2. Swamiji’s Podcast

“In 1962, after many requests, Swami Jyotirmayananda came to the West to spread the knowledge of India. As founder of Sanatan Dharma Mandir in Puerto Rico (1962-1969), Swamiji rendered unique service to humanity through his regular classes, weekly radio lectures in English and in Spanish, and numerous TV appearances. In March 1969, Swamiji moved to Miami, Florida, and established the ashram that has become the center for the international activities of the Yoga Research Foundation.”

A new one I’ve found. I like it a lot so far. Click here for more.
