Brook Slagle • 2024-02-04 Yo! Brook here. I am currently writing this at 11pm on Sunday in Barcelona, Spain, procrastination nearly got me today. Time change is a blessing for the KEEP GOING newsletter, Anyway, story time… I used to have an absurd Instagram addiction. I had the habit of any second where I was “bored” to open my phone and click on Instagram. I would start scrolling and being mindless. Hours would disappear. Can you imagine how rough it was once they implemented reels? Any free...

Brook Slagle • 2024-01-28 You need to flip to a new chapter in your life (it’s easier than you think). At some point, you might feel uncomfortable in your own skin, each day feels like it DRAGS, or maybe you just feel stagnant. You go through your day-to-day, and it just feels like you are standing in place. This how I have been feeling for the last few months. I have been slooooowly going up, but honestly, it’s barely a creep forward. To put a label on it… it’s stagnation, and it’s my...

Brook Slagle • 2024-01-21 Want to help the world? Generate an absurd amount of MONEY. This is an idea that I came across while reading Going Infinite, it’s about Sam Bankman-Fried(@SBF_FTX)’s rise and fall. this guy → One of the most interesting topics I found in it is “Effective Altruism”. It is a movement that advocate’s using evidence to find out how to benefit others as much as possible and to take action with said evidence. SBF figured the most effective way to have a huge impact on...

Brook Slagle • 2024-01-14 yo, brook here! Have you ever pitched something before? Have you tried to convince someone to buy from you, or spoke over and over to people to achieve an intended result? Well, story time.. Ever since I was a kid, I have had a stuttering issue. I got made fun of back in school because I would stumble over my words in almost every sentence. Each day, I had a class that I had to be pulled from in order to be one-on-one with a speech counselor. We would read out of a...

Brook Slagle • 2024-01-07 Hey, it's Brook. I have been thinking about something recently that might change your life... We have become disconnected from the way we acquire things. It's as simple as... "Buy" As a society, we have the greatest conveniences at our fingertips. You no longer have to get off the couch to order groceries. And in 48 hours they can appear at your doorstep. There is nearly zero effort. We lack of purpose, but have an abundance of all consumerist things. All at the drop...

Brook Slagle • 2024-01-03 yo, its brook here. I got news… as you could probably tell, I am ending the series Wednesday Wrap Up. There are a few reasons for this. I recently have been auditing things that I do. Checking if they are still serving me and trying to view everything within the perspective of 80/20, Pareto’s Principle. One of the bigger time-sinks is my Wednesday Wrap Up series on my newsletter. The original goal with this series was to share cool things that I found - it was pretty...

Brook Slagle • 2023-12-31 Let’s talk about obsession and fixation. I have a knack for it… I often get hyper obsessed and learn everything there is to know at a surface level about a thing. I call this a superpower (because it is). But this obsessive trait of me can easily cause me to spend more money than I would like, and often distracts me for a long time… and keeps me away from things that actually matter. For example, I got obsessively interested in mechanical keyboards a while ago....

Brook Slagle • 2023-12-25 yo! brook here. Happy holidays & merry Christmas to all who celebrate! This is part 2 of my "I got lost in Mexico" story. If you haven't read part 1, you can read it here. I found my bus line. I stood there for a few minutes, waiting for the bus to arrive. And then I found JESUS. He took the shape of a mid-twenties white woman with a Peace Corp backpack. She was my savior. I struck up a conversation and got the low-down. We ended up being on the same bus, and we...
