A product is bought to be used. It has to satisfy certain criteria, not only functional, but also psychological and aesthetic. Good design emphasises the usefulness of a product whilst disregarding anything that could possibly detract from it.
Likewise, we want your blockchain designed life to be useful. You, as the product, must be useful not only to yourself, but to your fellow human beings.
But don’t worry about being useful to others just yet.
What I find is that when I improve myself so I’m more functional in life, I end up providing value to others as a by product!
Good blockchain designed lives also disregard anything that could possibly detract from your usefulness to yourself and others. We’ve talked about this before on B90X, but it’s never a bad time to be reminded.
- Agreeing to “take a look” at someone elses new startup idea. Why would I do this? It’s complete sideways energy! I have a mission to achieve!
- Building apps that I think are “fun” and “cool” but provide no real value to me or my cryptoation at TheBitcoin.Pub
- Driving to Starbucks to buy a stupid $5 coffee in the morning
- Buying beer for my home
Here’s the point. I want to be useful. TO MYSELF. I want to be fully utilized to my utmost potential for ME. This makes me even more useful to you guys! Imagine what we would have NOT built for the cryptonation if I let all these mini-distractions get to me… and boy… do they add up fast.
You see, the mission is to build the infrastructure for the crypto economy. Anything else, makes me useless to you guys.
In todays B90X, tell us. How are you being useful to yourself? Where do you need to cut out excess or waste? Let us know. We’d love to keep you accountable and help you on the long journey to the moon!
