Change Your Future to Rewrite the Past

“People think that only the future can be changed, but in fact, the future is continually changing the past. The past can and does change.

Time Anxiety Is the Most Pressing Problem of Our Age ⌛️

Time is running out, and you should be doing something about it … but you don’t know what it is. That’s what this post is about: something called time anxiety. I’ve been dealing with it for years, and maybe you have, too—even if you’ve never heard the name. I believe that time anxiety is the most pressing problem of the modern world. Once...

Lessons from an Errant Rocket Ship

From time to time, it’s good to be reminded of your insignificance. Last week provided an opportunity in the form of a Chinese rocket that was falling to the earth. Perhaps you heard about it.

The pace, therefore, was slow. His name is James Lawrence, more popularly known...

The Present-Day Time Machine

I’ll return to that in this post, but first let’s consider a few things that have happened this month: We’ve all been hearing about NFTs, also known as “non-fungible...

Money Mistakes Are Temporary

A common TV trope features someone who’s down on their luck and forced to borrow from someone with questionable moral scruples: a loan shark, the Mafia, a representative from Wells Fargo. As fate would have it, they fall further and further behind, until they’re in an even greater bind. Soon they’re being pursued by the loan shark, who threatens...
