I discovered your channel back in June/july, through John’s daily vlog, which was a timely co-incidence as at the time I was putting spare change into crypto, for my own experiments.
And then, I watched, stay quiet (i’m not one to comment unless I feel i have some value to add), and, I LISTENED.
I listened to your words on meta and systems thinking.
I listened to your words on how everything that has happened will happen again.
I listened to your words on going getting up and doing this as a pro not a schoolboy.
I listened to your words on holding.
I listened to your words on the value of DCA.
I listened to your words on analysis basics.
I listened to your words on Antshares.
I listened to your words on ICO’s and post-ICO analysis.
I watched John buy his first BTC, and the look on his face as if he’d arrived at his first prom
I watched your 360 experiments in VR.
I watched you move out of the study and into the garage.
I watched you pivot from crazy 8bit graphics green screen backgrounds to the bitcoin Lambo.
I watched and jumped in on the Patreon experiment.
I watched and jumped in on the Bitcoin Pub experiment.
On Thursday I went in for surgery.
I was sent home after and took drugs to sleep for 24 hours.
On Friday, 6am I woke up. I got up. I walked out of the bedroom and into the lounge, where I could here my daughter playing.
For the first time in my life, I could see my daughter playing PERFECTLY - in full 20/20 vision.
And I cried, I cried non-stop with happiness for a good 10mins. Sitting. Watching. Crying. Happiness.
You see I’ve worn glasses for 32 years. My daughter hated my glasses. She would always lift them off my face, and say “nooooo papa”.
I’ve never been able to afford the laser surgery I always wished I could have to correct my vision, so I could do sports, swim, play with my daughter without damn visual aids having to come first. My gains that came from listening to your words, listening to your systems thinking, paid for my surgery.
So thank you. Massively. Your passion to never quit has given my daughter a new experience with her father. That’s a multi-generational impact.
This is 100% because of John’s daily vlog, your serious words (I miss those serious summer session on your porch, and the deep thinking that went into them), and my actions.
You deserve this thanks.
Thank you both, from my family to yours.
If I can ever help either of you (I’m in Australia and a passionate product manager), tell me, I’ll be there.
