Comment of the Week

“Hey Mark,

Just read your latest SWS…”How to Put the Work in Everyday.”

…A month ago, I dropped alcohol cold turkey (or should I say Wild Turkey?). This is after a couple of decades of drinking too much too often. And it has been ridiculously easy. I’ve done a number of vids about that on my YT channel: How To Make It Easy.

Anyway, the point of this and how it relates to your SWS is that the most profound thing about the cessation is a passion and motivation for work. It’s so good/”bad” that I’m up every damn morning between 4-5am. Just chomping at the bit to get a bit closer to those goals, evaluate plan and execution, etc. No alarm clock. I just wake up, start thinking of the exciting prospects, and the covers are thrown off!

This morning was 04.45 and at 06.00 I said to myself, ‘go make a couple of videos in 2 locations.’ By 06.15 I was shooting at Rawai Beach in Phuket, Thailand. That was about the 4 weeks of no booze. Then I hopped on the motorbike, rode the 5 mins up to Promthep Cape, the southernmost tip of Phuket, and shot another one about ridiculous politics in the US.

Stopped for a coffee on the way back, then got some gas for the motorbike, then hit the hardware store for something I need, then hit a convenience store for bottled water.

So by 07.30 when I arrived back at my place, I’d already achieved more than in an average day boozed up.

Cheers, man.


Richard drops alcohol, sees great benefits.
