  1. For me, a nice way to integrate spiritual work with more personal development style work is to: 1. Get clear on your goals/life purpose/connect with your inner compass/intuition for guidance 2. Take action that moves you in the direction you've found in step 1. 3. Notice the negative emotions that arise on your path: they are signs pointing towards neurotic/inflated parts of the ego that get triggered by your attempts of changing. 4. When you have time/ the situation allows, dive into the emotions, find out what lies at their root, and release them. To do this effectively you might want to look into different frameworks for this: Focusing (Gene Gendlin), Completion Process (Teal Swan), The Sedona Method, Letting Go (David Hawkins),... Via this process, you slowly liberate consciousness/energy that was bound by the emotions/parts you've released while at the same time removing the self-sabotage mechanisms that prevent you from reaching your goals.
  2. It would be quite awesome to gain a behind-the-scenes perspective on how actualized.org is being run, this would help the people trying to actualize their life purpose via the avenue of entrepreneurship enormously (by providing a case-study of sorts).
  3. In my opinion this is one of Leo's most underrated video's: In this video Leo introduces us to his personal knowledge management system. He closes by emphazising the importance of figuring the "how to build one for myself" part on our own. I agree that blindly copying someone else's system isn't an effective way of building one's Commonplace Book, but at the same time I wanted more information on the topic. So I did some searching and found someone truly remarkable. The guy's name is Tiago Forte and his speciality is "Building A Second Brain" (other phrase for Commonplace Book). Very yellow. He has an awesome blog, densly packed with goodness. Highly recommended for everyone trying to get the most out of their learning/ personal knowledge management! Great for building one's digital productivity infrastructure in general. Here is a great post to start & gain an overview of his teachings: https://praxis.fortelabs.co/the-digital-productivity-pyramid/

  5. @Nahm Jin Shin Jyutsu seems really interesting.. do you have any book/ resource recommendations?
  6. General confidence is strongy linked to living with integrity and owning everything about yourself. The more chinks in the armor you have (aka things you haven't accepted completely about yourself) the higher the likelihood of "being found out"/ being exposed. This triggers defense mechanisms which undermine confidence.
  7. When it comes to fatigue a few things work quite fast: 1. Take a power nap. When feeling sluggish and tired in the afternoon taking a short nap (around 30min) has an incredible impact on alertness, wakefulness and attention. 2. Have a high baseline level of activity. Whenever I sit for longer than ~1h30min (in ideal posture this can be increased significantly) I get into a sluggish/ foggy state in which nothing of significance will be achieved. Try to move frequently, low intensity is fine. Having a step counting device helps a lot. 3. Don't eat shit and don't eat too much. 4. Wim Hof Method. Both the breathing and the cold exposure part work wonders and are a magic pill/ quick fix against fatigue. Investing in your health and vitality with the e.g. the methods outlined above will not only help you in the short run, they will also compound and slowly increase your baseline energy levels.
  8. What is personality and what constitutes it (Interindividual differences in Strengths, Weaknesses, Worldview, Information processing, etc.)? How does it affect personal development? Especially: How do different personalities move through the stages of development in their own unique way? What are proven ways for gaining clarity on your own personality type (quality of Enneagram, Big Five, Myers-Briggs)? This is something I've heard nearly nothing about and would love to hear your take on this one Leo!
  9. Karlsruhe, Germany. I'd love to meet some fellow Actualizers!
  10. The main principle in health is to mimic the activities, nutrition etc. of a hunter-gatherer 200.000 years ago. Use your body how it was meant to be used. You could also try deconstructing health/ vitality practices into a few main components: (ranked by importance + in brackets the one thing which lead to the highest benefits for me) 1. Sleep & Relaxation (Knowing what your chronological sleeping type is (night owl, early bird) and sticking to it) 2. Nutrition (Eat lot's of vegetables, preferably barely cooked) 3. Cultivating Positive Emotions (Opening your chakras) 4. Movement & Strength Training (Do intermittent breaks from sitting -> flexibility exercises/ some hatha yoga asanas are great) 5. Cold/Heat Exposure (Daily cold showers) 6. Fasting (Habit of intermittent fasting) 7. Posture (Knowing how good posture feels in your body) +NoFap for men
