15 Ways To Improve Life Today — (In Exactly 187.5 Minutes)

Doing the maths, that's just a smidgen over 3 hours.

The Godfather is 2 hours and 55 minutes...and while my 3 hours of footage in 15 videos shot, edited, produced, and published over the last week won't give you any ideas or tips on how to actualize your best life as a mafia Don, it may give you more than a few actionable and practical ideas. Inspiration? Well, I'm an expat living a dream in Thailand...Enough said? Pitfalls to avoid?

That's a certainty, and I pass all of then on—in the the writs and the vids—in part because I'm the worst at succumbing to nearly all of them. Learn from my mistakes, would'ja?

This is pretty big work in terms of thought, effort, hours, and perseverance. Sunday, September 5th's Roundup had 7 vids produced over the week. Last Sunday, the 12th, had 11 of them. That's 33 videos in 3 weeks—awfully close to 2 per day (now 1 vid per 0.64 days).

Will you love all of them? No. Not even I can claim that. It's like your own offspring. Admit it; you have your favorite(s). Will you hate all of them? No. Try to hate #5, for example, once you get past the clickbait innuendo (I Live Between Two Lovely Young Thai Ladies. Here's What Happened Today). I'm sorry to say that such headlining of posts is the terrain in this game. I suppose it always has been everywhere products and services are sold. Sex & money. They sell.

Here's the introduction to this week's 15-video deluge release, where I discuss that very aspect of the selling out required to be effective at this sort of thing. It's probably less so for writing than for blogging. Ironically, the title of the video, and of this post, falls right into that hyperbole category. The headline analyzer I use scored it an 84 out of 100. My 1st stab at it scored in the 60s... The 2nd cut scored 75. Then, successively, 82, 83, and I settled at 84 as close enough.

I'm learning as I go.

Before I get to the list, I've got 4 insightful analytic charts for you, or, for those who may be curious or interested. Or, even for those considering doing this sort of thing in their own unique style. What you may be up against. Click on them for the full size versions, about 1500px wide.
