Do this. Directives - part 1

First see “just tell me what to do” for context.

These directives will take another form some day, with more details and references. And there are many more to come.

But I decided to post this outline now, because so many people have asked for these since Tim’s show.


  1. How to be useful to others
  2. How to get rich
  3. How to thrive in an unknowable future
  4. How to like people
  5. What to do when you get successful
  6. How to stop being rich and happy
