"You've a great quote in the introduction. Of the new book from Sculptor Elizabeth King and I'd love to hear you. Explain this or give examples of how it can apply or might apply the quote from Elizabeth King is process saves us from the poverty of our intentions. What does that mean? There would be no book if it weren't for that quote from Elizabeth King. I don't know how it ended up on my desk came from somebody else who took credit for the quote and I started tracking down because it's so resonated with me and after talking to him, he acknowledged well, someone else really said at first and I found this woman and if you close your eyes and visualize a sculptor, you might be visualizing. Her and if you think about how she lives her life and the number of hours, she puts into each piece of work it's extraordinary and they made a documentary of some of her work which you can see on Amazon I had never heard of her but now she's my friend and I've learned so much from that one sentence what she's saying is this. Tomorrow morning when you wake up. You probably won't feel like engaging in the practice. and. If you do, you probably won't feel that way the next day. that. What we do is once decide we decide that were runner and runners go every day we decide were a blogger and bloggers blog every day. And that decision. Lightens the cognitive load so much 'cause there's no time. No reason to negotiate with ourselves because we already had the meeting we already decided now question is not should we go or not the question is left to right but we're going are there other macro decisions like that in your life that you could give examples of saving yourself from the poverty of intentions or from the Whimsey of how you feel on different mornings? Well. So the the other one which is as big as that one is I think authenticity is a crock and I think authenticity is overrated and talked about far too much. The problem with authenticity is it selfish authenticity enables us to say whatever we want and if people don't like it while I was just being authentic. It is a ticket to self absorbed inconsistency. And I don't think anybody we serve wants that I think what they want is consistency I think they want us to make a promise and keep it and the reason it's called work not a hobby is because I made a promise. And so I decided a really long time ago that.

"So we got high story. Talk on, we got. Yeah and then we've got this speculation, but we also here. No, we have. We have proof of the discovery of these quote. Unquote Curative. POWERS RIGHT BECAUSE IT turns out. One British explorer did actually make it to the Arctic and did seem to find a unicorn of sorts. Yes, Martin Fraga. Sure we've on before if I'm not mistaken a very well-known British explorer, who went to the Arctic in fifteen, seventy seven. And when he returned, he brought with him a six foot long. Tusk that he had found on what he referred to as a Dead Sea Unicorn. And he test this great. He'd tested the tasks medical potency by putting spiders inside. When the spiders died, he declared that the horns. We're effective in neutralizing their poison. Brilliant deduction there and then he gave it to Queen Elizabeth. Has a gift and she. You know respected this guy and thought that his methods were sound, and she was so impressed that she ordered that it be preserved alongside the British crown jewels, which is like a phrase that we used to refer to any of the like highest regarded. You know very very tightly guarded things in any situation, the crown jewels of automobiles. This is the crown jewels, and then the the Narwhal Horn was right alongside it and the late sixteen hundreds. We have Christian the V of Denmark His throne like game of thrones fashion made out of Unicorn, horns that had been pricey and that was used for coronation ceremonies. Yeah and now now we're getting to a an important turn in our story because we understandably have to wonder right. Did everyone take this at face value? Did literally nobody test the product here? It turns out. Someone did after Elizabeth King James the first takes the throne, and according to Nigel Suckling, the author of a book named UNICORNS. King James was a little bit skeptical. He was a little bit more of a critical thinker. Perhaps a little bit less credulous, and he purchased a horn, he said look I spent so much money on this I dropped so much scratch. I gotta try this out so the way the way that he did it. which is not super ethical. Is this he poisoned? Poisoned one of his servants, and then he's gave them an antidote made of this powdered Unicorn Horn keep in mind. This is supposed to be the one hundred percent cure for any and all things poisonous The servant died, and so James is conclusion was not not necessarily that Unicorn Horn didn't work instead, he thought maybe he bought a fake one. which to me is I know someone died and I. Don't WanNa be a terrible person, but that's that's Kinda ridiculous right I'll. It's fine minutes been long enough we can. We can poke a little fanatic. It is ridiculous. I wonder if he did it like knowingly. You know with the claim believing that he was going to be cured by the Union of the powder Unicorn. And he was like you know co What's the word? It was consensual poisoning. Can. Central poisoning is in King James the First Bible Guy. He's the Bible Guy Right. Yeah, that's correct the King James version of the Bible. It IT'S A it's a story all its own, its own episode, but Long Story Short back in sixteen o four King James. Sometime around the time he was You know consensually poisoning servants during his reign. He authorized a new translation of the Bible. Totally to. You know shore up his own his own power structure, so he was a smart guy again, maybe not super ethical but here's the deal we see. This test fails write, so he assumes I. GotTa Counterfeit Horn but. There's a reason not Really Trading Unicorn Horn for curative properties today, and that is the two forces..
