Viktor Frankl on finding meaning in difficult times 

The Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl has inspired millions of readers over generations. In this interview, he depicts his personal experiences in the Nazi death camps. Frankl argues that it is impossible to avoid suffering, but it is up to us how we cope with it. He believes that by adding meaning to our suffering we can move forward and overcome any hardship.

📚Book of the Week

The Discovery of the Unconscious ⁠by Henri F. Ellenberger ⁠

This classic work is a monumental, integrated view of man’s search for an understanding of the inner reaches of the mind. In an account that is both exhaustive and exciting, the distinguished psychiatrist and author demonstrate the long chain of development—through the exorcists, magnetists, and hypnotists—that led to the fruition of dynamic psychiatry in the psychological systems of Janet, Freud, Adler, and Jung.

💊Biohack of the Week

With C-8 MCT oil you can increase your mental performance, so you can fully concentrate on important tasks. Brain Octane consists exclusively of 8-chain caprylic acid C8, a fatty acid that is completely metabolised by your body without adding fat. The metabolism creates so-called ketone bodies that serve your cells as an ideal source of energy. Try it out and you will always want a well-filled bottle of MCT oil in the house. 18X stronger than coconut oil, fast energy for maximum focus Upgraded brain octane oil is obtained from coconut and palm cores.

My Interview with Dr. Donald Berwick

The 17th episode of the Psychology Podcast with Daniel Karim features Dr. Donald Berwick the former Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Some Is Not a Number. Soon Is Not a Time. The number is 100,000. The time is NOW. The goal is achievable, but we need your help. Please be part of the 100,000 Lives Campaign. – Dr. Donald Berwick

Over a year ago, while creating my ideal future blueprint I set out a career goal that changed the trajectory of my life forever: Change the lives of 1.000.000 individuals for the better within the next five years.

This was the answer to the question; What do I have to do with my career in order to feel worthwhile?

There was only one “small” problem with this “humble” proclamation – I had no idea how to do it.

How does one transform himself into an individual that is capable of changing the world?

This was precisely the question that motivated me to reach out to Dr. Donald Berwick, one of the architects of the 100,000 lives campaign, a national initiative to engage thousands of U.S. hospitals in an effort to prevent needless inpatient deaths by changing the habits of hospital employees.

If you are not familiar with this world changer, I suggest that you start by watching the transforming speech he delivered at Harvard University recently.

🧠Exercise of the Week

The Priority Mapping Technique 

Priority Mapping is a great tool to identify behaviors that will move you closer to your goals.

This tool was built by Daniel Karim and Sarah Buchert but it’s inspired by Professor B.J Fogg from Stanford University.

That’s it, folks!
