With the publication of the greatest guide to living for men. Jordan Peterson has managed to create a new 10 Commandments and then added 2 for good measure. Rogue Magazine has taken the most significant list of rules shared by Mr Peterson to his students.
12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos is my new book, based on a dozen of these rules. It is currently available here:
An Antidote to Chaos: Jordan B. Peterson
The most intelligent men, like the strongest, find their happiness where others would find only disaster: in the labyrinth, in being hard with themselves and with others, in effort; their delight is in self mastery; in them asceticism becomes second nature, a necessity, an instinct. They regard a difficult task as a privilege; it is to them a recreation to play with burdens that would crush all others. Friedrich Nietzsche, The Antichrist

Last night I talked to a friend by phone, we did our updates on life, then I mentioned I had just published The Antichrist by Nietzsche (small plug). Then I asked him about his long term project, to set up a business. His response was the same, he was making plans to make a plan. Same plan as last month, last year. I felt a little pissed off, so I told him my 1% rule. Make one move in the direction of your goals every day. Refuse to sleep until you do one thing to push the rock further up the hill.
