There’s a Ted Talk by Tim Ferriss on why listing out all your fears would help you in ways goal setting can’t. I’ve found it useful, so I’ve summarised below the framework that Tim Ferriss uses. Enjoy!
Have 3 pages/sections.
In page 1, write:
What can go wrong?
-write everything down.
How can I prevent it from going wrong?
-think of pre-empt solutions.
How can I fix this if everything goes to hell anyway?
-think of repairs.
What can I gain, even if nothing goes right? What benefits will just trying bring me?
What will inaction cost me?
emotionally, physically, mentally…
2 ingredients. No picture because I ate it before I could take one :p largely inspired by this two-ingredient recipe.
2 tablespoons flaxseed powder/Milo powder/anything you want, as long as it’s not too watery. The flaxseed tastes delicious.
1. Mix the egg with the powder until the consistency is more or less even throughout.
2. Microwave on high for however long you like. I tend to do roughly 40-60 seconds.
That’s it. A lot of times, cooking is flexible – recipes can be changed, the portion sizes can be changed. Go on and explore!

Not much rule explanation required, either. Can be played anywhere, anytime, with (more or less) any number of people.

(Ah, how nostalgic. It’s been three years since I stopped learning Japanese. Tbh, that sentence also took me a while to think up… :p)
I’ve been asked this question a few times, so I thought I’d just post it up here.

I’ve been making my own natto, which is a type of Japanese fermented soybean. I’ve heard about its health benefits and have been making it since last year. Singapore sells it, yes, but they’re in tiny styrofoam packs that are bad for the environment. I learnt it from NattoKing, which was a website dedicated to this food. Unfortunately, the NattoKing website is no longer up.
