Yesterday I did something a bit radical, and was a long time overdue.
I went on a unfriending binge on my Facebook account.
I took the advice of a business mentor of mine and severely cut back on my list of friends. And hilariously, Facebook won’t let me unfriend anyone for an undetermined amount of time.
Because spam, dontcha know.
I had unfriended over 2,000 people in the span of about 6 hours yesterday, and sure as shoot, they put the brakes on that.
My eventual goal is to get it to under 100 friends. Family, friends I actually speak to in a meaningful way, that sort of thing.
I have to say it was quite liberating. People I knew from a church I attended 10 years ago are still on my friends list. Why do I need to know what’s going on their lives 10 years later? I’m here, they’re there. That’s the end of it as far as I’m concerned.
A lot of people like to stay in touch with others, and that’s all well and good. I just like to keep my inner circle, well, inner.
Enough about that…
Another thing that is liberating, although it requires more effort than culling one’s Facebook account, is taking meaningful action toward becoming a better person, be it a musician, an entrepreneur, a barber, what have you.
To that end, I’m excited to announce plans for the very first feature course at The Easy School of Hard Knocks on Viktor Frankl’s classic book, Man’s Search for Meaning.
It will start around the beginning of April and will go, well, until we’re done reading and discussing it.
I’ll announce more details later, but want to give you a heads up about it now.
There are several courses currently available at The Easy School of Hard Knocks. And they’re priced to sell.
A few of y’all have checked it out and tried out a course.
