Eyesight hacking and improvement (myopia) | Eyefix

I was listening to a podcast this morning by Tim Ferriss.  This particular one was about decision making and how having to make decisions can affect your productivity as your brain has effectively been zapped of some of it's brainpower.  (I'm seriously paraphrasing here.  Listen to the Podcast it's a lot better than what I've summed up it to be!)  The one I listened to doesn't have show notes yet (as it's the latest one Ep 44: How to Avoid Decision Fatigue) but you can find the podcasts here: Anyway I'm a mini fan of Tim Ferriss and a few years back read 4 Hour Body.  I love that he experiments and has hacks for different things.  I was tempted to ask if he can do an eyesight hack or experimentation on how to improve eyesight (myopia in my case).  But then I thought that I had the tools at my disposal and really should be doing my own experiments.  Which I have been doing.  But they have been terribly implemented in th

Schoolswop - Dedicated Oddswop type Community

Hmm I should be writing this blog post on the Oddswop blog too.  But I suppose that one will be a bit more formal ;) I had fun putting the page together but ended up crunching it so that I did the landing page, the video and the voice over within 48 hours.  It started with a conversation with coach Luke H via The Entourage (coaching I'm getting) where he was helping me with cold calling (bleah!) Great help but even better is his belief in the concept.  I can't tell you how much a difference it makes when someone relatively outside the ecosystem not only is supportive but actually believes in it.  And can then link things up and add real value with relevant information.  Luke gets it.  And for that I'm very thankful. So one of the things he suggested I do is focus.  Focus on one type of Oddswop Communities opportunity rather than all the potential it has.  We can always expand out from there.  And schools it is.  I'm not so sure about the Schoolswop name.  Mainly be

Quitting Sugar?

I have been helping out at I Quit Sugar for the last few months and finished up yesterday. I was only there as a stop gap whilst they were looking for a CTO... and I managed to help.  It was only meant to be helping recruit someone but in the end we did find someone from my network to help out.  Always happy to connect people I know... hang on... that's the second tech guru I've put onto IQS! So have I quit sugar?  No, but I am interested in my health and food so I'm more aware of my food and been reading up about fructose and the effects.  I even have my own bottle of rice malt sugar and will be looking to use it as a sugar alternative. I am more anti wheat than fructose.  To me pasta and bread seems more 'unnatural' than rice and fruit.  But the processed sugar?  Yeah not so good.  Evil?  No but like anything if wielded incorrectly it can be near evil. For those interested in quitting sugar, definitely check out and Sarah's blog
