The Total Cost Of Near-Perfect Health Without the Cooking, Shopping, and Work

The Total Cost Of Near-Perfect Health Without the Cooking, Shopping, and Work

How much does it really cost to eat as cleanly as possible without having to deal with extensive meal-prep, cooking, and shopping? If you could only pick the best, most impactful food choices and supplements, what would it run you? What’s the true cost of infinite laziness meeting perfect health? I was pleased to find that although it’s not a cheap date, it’s also not completely unrealistic. Like most things, there’s immense value in quantifying and defining exactly what you’re after – to live as healthfully as possible, on your terms, without exerting too many calories in the process (lame pun intended).

I’ve attached below the spreadsheet I encourage you to use and apply for yourself, along with a direct copy and paste of my inputs. To get the full measure of what your dream life costs, add in the rest of your living expenses (rent, travel, fun, etc.).

Plan instead of dream. Quantify don’t wonder. See it and achieve it.

Book Summary: The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom by Don Miguel Ruiz and Janet Mills

Book Summary: The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom by Don Miguel Ruiz and Janet Mills

My Interpretation

We are the sum of our thoughts and actions, but most interestingly, often our thoughts are imbued in us by society and subconscious comparison to others. Mindfulness works in conjunction with this to observe your mind and thoughts as they occur as a preliminary step toward any positive redirection. People (myself included) are walking basket cases full of their own insecurities, issues, and worries, so it’s really a waste of your energy and time to take things personally or assume the worst. Show up as your best self, both to yourself in how you speak and think, and to others. Reclaim your sense of inner child by finding and sustaining what energizes and excites you.

Book Highlights

  • “That is why humans resist life. To be alive is the biggest fear humans have. Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive — the risk to be alive and express what we really are. Just being ourselves is the biggest fear of humans. We have learned to live our lives trying to satisfy other people’s demands.”
  • “The first agreement is to be impeccable with your word.”
  • “The second agreement is don’t take anything personally.”
  • “Even the opinions you have about yourself are not necessarily true; therefore, you don’t need to take whatever you hear in your own mind personally. The mind has the ability to talk to itself, but it also has the ability to hear information that is available from other realms.”
  • “The third agreement is don’t make assumptions.”
  • “The fourth agreement is about the action of the first three: Always do your best.”
  • “Sometimes that little child comes out when you are having fun or playing, when you feel happy, when you are painting, or writing poetry, or playing the piano, or expressing yourself in some way. These are the happiest moments of your life — when the real you comes out, when you don’t care about the past and you don’t worry about the future. You are childlike. But there is something that changes all that: We call them responsibilities.”
  • “We are addicted to being the way we are. We are addicted to anger, jealousy, and self-pity. We are addicted to the beliefs that tell us, “I’m not good enough, I’m not intelligent enough. Why even try? Other people will do it because they’re better than me.” All of these old agreements which rule our dream of life are the result of repeating them over and over again. Therefore, to adopt The Four Agreements, you need to put repetition in action. Practicing the new agreements in your life is how your best becomes better. Repetition makes the master.”

 

Location Independence Simplified: Complete Toolkit for Lifestyle Business, Virtual Companies & Remote Work (Plus A Faster-Than-Typing Solution for Everyone)

Location Independence Simplified: Complete Toolkit for Lifestyle Business, Virtual Companies & Remote Work (Plus A Faster-Than-Typing Solution for Everyone)

The days of costly and rigid business overhead, rent and infrastructure are over. The following is everything you need to run a profitable and simple lifestyle business or to work remotely and still easily communicate with customers, employees/colleagues, virtual assistants, or partners. This will be updated for easiest and most useful technology and apps as I find and use them myself.

*Most relevant for: online-based consultants, coaches, service providers, and people who want to operate a 100% digital/paperless business.

*Note: All non-affiliate links below, and all the services below are very affordable or free.


Communicate Better With Team Members and Customers

Loom: My #1 favorite tool here. A faster-than-typing solution by creating quick videos without having to wait for Dropbox uploads or any other lags. Use to create training videos for your team or review items for your customers.

Zoom: Video conferencing and screen sharing to make phone calls infinitely more productive with team members and clients/customers. I have it on good authority that BlueJeans is easier and better than Zoom, if you happen to need an alternative for video meetings.

Google Drive: Limitless communication and data storing. Create docs and sheets to share with anyone that can be updated by multiple users in real-time.

Basecamp: Project management software if you have multiple team members. Organize and schedule tasks and to-dos without creating an instant messaging and email back and forth zoo.

Skype: Free and simple instant messaging.

ScheduleOnce or Calendly: Automate people booking time on your calendar for prospective and active clients. Back and forth on finding a mutual time is a terrible use of your existence.

Get Help: Virtual Assistance, Delegation, and Outsourcing

Fiverr: One-off transactional help for almost anything without having to manage anyone.

Upwork: More dedicated assistance from part-time to full-time contracted employment. Take advantage of geo-arbitrage and hire people from countries with weaker currencies (equals cheaper labor for you).

Get Paid: Accept Payment Online

The most elegant one-two combination to accept credit card payments and automate invoicing. Note: you need to integrate a Payment Gateway with Stripe; you cannot run Stripe as a standalone product.

Stripe: Payment Processor (siphon payments into your bank account from completed payments)

Payfunnels: Payment Gateway (input credit card info to accept payment)

Lock In What You Sold: Send Business Agreements

Docusign: Sign and send contracts online.


There are always more things you could add, like email-autoresponders and LeadPages, but I consider this the essentials kit. If you need help stringing it all together to make it work for you, post below or shoot me a message. Keep things as simple as possible; there are people crushing it who don’t even have a website.
