But every once in a while, my feelings fail me: I’m tired and grumpy, and don’t want to get under a 300-lb barbell; I’ve been invited to some social event, and would rather stay home; an old lady from church needs help moving, and I just want to relax.
In these situations, I remember a few of my favorite lines from Kyle Eschenroeder’s Pocket Guide to Action:
I don’t feel like working out until I get my blood flowing. I’m too tired to have sex until we’ve begun. I don’t want to go to the party until I’m there.
Motivation will follow if you have the balls to go without it.
While feelings can precipitate action, they also invariably follow it.
It’s like the way you have to pull a kite along the ground before the wind lifts it into the air. Or how you have to break a glow stick before it phosphoresces.
Of course, this sets up something of a Catch-22: if you’ll feel like doing something once you start doing it, but you don’t feel like starting, how do you get going on it in the first place?
Sheer discipline helps. But so does memory. Reflect on past results.
I know when I look back, I’ve never regretted doing a workout, rather than not. Never regretted going to see friends, rather than staying home. Never regretted doing an act of service, rather than keeping to myself.
Just take one step out the door, break the seal of your inertia, and the glow of feelings will trail in your wake.

2. Peanut Butter
Joe Black/Death, 'Meet Joe Black'
Death tries peanut butter for the first time, and it’s truly one of the best scenes in a movie. Not because of the dialogue, the acting, or the scenery — all of which are fine — but what knocks your blockhead is the profound representation of the minute things we appreciate about our short lives on this (often troublesome) planet. Of course love, of course family, of coursepicturesque vistas at sunset or whatever, but to have been around for all of world history, seen every incarnation of human demise, individual and collective, and then finally wind up with five senses and a fresh beating heart… and then taste fucking peanut butter? Any brain of any creature from any dimension would absolutely, obviously, totally melt!
Think of the “Part of Your World” song from The Little Mermaid, except Ariel is actually Death who’s taken the form of a man killed by two cars slamming into him in the same (batshit fluke of an) accident. Death is discovering every single thing about human existence, a surreal glowing world that he’s only observed from afar. So when someone offers him peanut butter — after some of the most wily kid-like bounce of a grown man’s eyes, courtesy of the frosted-haired hunk that is Death — it's for sure a bewildering moment of appreciating the little things. He inspects the first spoonful like the alien visitor that he is and nearly chokes on it like a doofus. The second time, though, he takes his time with it, rolling his tongue over the utensil and licking his gums, before finally stating the simplest, highest praise that could ever come from the Grim Reaper himself: "I thoroughly enjoy this peanut butter."
This single two-bite spoon-snack has such a daunting effect on Death that his love interest, the glorious spark of quiet, humble life that is Susan Parrish, needs to clarify if it’s somehow better than sex with her.
Susan: “Do you love making love to me?”
Susan: “More than peanut butter?”
Joe: “Yes. Much more.”
I have not become death, the destroyer of girls, but damn, if a woman asked me if I enjoyed midnight antics with her more than, say, soft pretzels, I’d for sure… well, actually hold on… this would require clarification. In this hypothetical, would she be inherently asking for me to straight up choose soft pretzels or lovemaking? Or would she be asking me to choose between soft pretzels and lovemaking with her specifically? Well, I ask you this, how fresh are the soft pretzels? I REPEAT, DAMN YOU, HOW FRESH ARE THE SOFT PRETZELS?
Okay, sorry. That outburst was unnecessary. I’ve come to the decision that any woman who would put me on the spot like that is some sort of temptress and I would naturally recite an ancient incantation to banish her from our realm

ARCHITECT PERSONALITY (INTJ, -A/-T)
It’s lonely at the top, and being one of the rarest and most strategically capable personality types, Architects know this all too well. Architects form just two percent of the population, and women of this personality type are especially rare, forming just 0.8% of the population – it is often a challenge for them to find like-minded individuals who are able to keep up with their relentless intellectualism and chess-like maneuvering. People with the Architect personality type are imaginative yet decisive, ambitious yet private, amazingly curious, but they do not squander their energy.
Nothing Can Stop the Right Attitude From Achieving Its Goal
With a natural thirst for knowledge that shows itself early in life, Architects are often given the title of “bookworm” as children. While this may be intended as an insult by their peers, they more than likely identify with it and are even proud of it, greatly enjoying their broad and deep body of knowledge. Architects enjoy sharing what they know as well, confident in their mastery of their chosen subjects, but they prefer to design and execute a brilliant plan within their field rather than share opinions on “uninteresting” distractions like gossip.
“You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.”
A paradox to most observers, Architects are able to live by glaring contradictions that nonetheless make perfect sense – at least from a purely rational perspective. For example, Architects are simultaneously the most starry-eyed idealists and the bitterest of cynics, a seemingly impossible conflict. But this is because Architect personalities tend to believe that with effort, intelligence and consideration, nothing is impossible, while at the same time they believe that people are too lazy, short-sighted or self-serving to actually achieve those fantastic results. Yet that cynical view of reality is unlikely to stop an interested Architect from achieving a result they believe to be relevant.
In Matters Of Principle, Stand Like a Rock
Architects radiate self-confidence and an aura of mystery, and their insightful observations, original ideas and formidable logic enable them to push change through with sheer willpower and force of personality. At times it will seem that Architects are bent on deconstructing and rebuilding every idea and system they come into contact with, employing a sense of perfectionism and even morality to this work. Anyone who doesn’t have the talent to keep up with Architects’ processes, or worse yet, doesn’t see the point of them, is likely to immediately and permanently lose their respect.
Rules, limitations and traditions are anathema to the Architect personality type – everything should be open to questioning and reevaluation, and if they see a way, Architects will often act unilaterally to enact their technically superior, sometimes insensitive, and almost always unorthodox methods and ideas.
This isn’t to be misunderstood as impulsiveness – Architects will strive to remain rational no matter how attractive the end goal may be, and every idea, whether generated internally or soaked in from the outside world, must pass the ruthless and ever-present “Is this going to work?” filter. This mechanism is applied at all times, to all things and all people, and this is often where Architect personalities run into trouble.
One Reflects More When Traveling Alone
Architects are brilliant and confident in bodies of knowledge they have taken the time to understand, but unfortunately the social contract is unlikely to be one of those subjects. White lies and small talk are hard enough as it is for a type that craves truth and depth, but Architects may go so far as to see many social conventions as downright stupid. Ironically, it is often best for them to remain where they are comfortable – out of the spotlight – where the natural confidence prevalent in Architects as they work with the familiar can serve as its own beacon, attracting people, romantically or otherwise, of similar temperament and interests.
Architects are defined by their tendency to move through life as though it were a giant chess board, pieces constantly shifting with consideration and intelligence, always assessing new tactics, strategies and contingency plans, constantly outmaneuvering their peers in order to maintain control of a situation while maximizing their freedom to move about. This isn’t meant to suggest that Architects act without conscience, but to many other types, Architects’ distaste for acting on emotion can make it seem that way, and it explains why many fictional villains (and misunderstood heroes) are modeled on this personality type.

ponent was a large island (Honshu) separated from three middle-sized
islands (Kyushu, Shikoku and Ezo) by narrow straits. It was already in
physical and human terms a remarkably isolated country. To the west,
it faced two inward-looking countries, one the great landmass of China,
the other the Korean peninsula whose proximity to Japan made it the
vehicle of contact with China. To the east lay the enormous north Pacific
ocean, little explored until the late eighteenth century. Cultural influences
(Confucian philosophy and Japan’s writing system, both Chinese in ori-
gin, and the Buddhist religion itself ) had all been transmitted through
Korea more than a thousand years previously, by a small elite body of
monks, scholars and noblemen, some of them returning Japanese. Later
contact was fitful, and at the end of the sixteenth century, there was
little trade and even less cultural movement between Korea and Japan.
However, unsettled international conditions would give Korea, in the
seminal decade of the 1590s and again after 1868 in the troubled times
of renewed western encroachments in Asia, an importance transcending
existing isolation. Isolation to the east and west was reinforced by an ab-
sence of contacts to the north, accounted for by climatic conditions, and
to the south, created by economic circumstances.
To the north of Honshu (and in the adjoining Tohoku, or north-east
of Honshu itself) the climate was influenced by the frontier of cold and
hot currents and winds on the interface of the world’s largest landmass
and its largest ocean. Cold currents pushing down along the coast of
Siberia in meeting the upward-moving warm currents of the Pacific re-
sulted in both pervasive fog and in sudden winter storms. As the summer
monsoon weakened, the winds of the Siberian landmass, pushing out
into the Pacific in a great anti-cyclonic sweep, curled in from a north-
easterly direction. On their path, they met the moisture-laden air of the
Pacific: in summer precipitation was heavy if they pushed out prema-
turely, and in winter snow lay deep on the ground in both the Ezo is-
lands (of which the principal one, Ezo-ga-shima, was renamed Hokkaido
after 1868) and the Tohoku. If autumnal change set in early, the contact
with the southerly air currents resulted in cloudiness or even rain as
the harvest was still ripening. One of the consequences was that even
as low as the latitude of 40 degrees (the same latitude as Washington,
D. C.) permanent settlement was relatively unattractive. Although a small
number of Japanese had migrated in medieval times, there was in 1600
only a minute colony in the south-west corner of Ezo-ga-shima across
the 30-mile Tsugaru strait. Two centuries later the fiction grew that the
Ezo islands had been a Japanese possession in past times. That, however,
was simply an argument to strengthen the Japanese claim against rivals;
the true occupants were the Ainu, rather like the Eskimos of even colder
regions, the only permanent inhabitants. The region was only vaguely
mapped: Kaempfer, the German doctor at the Dutch factory in Deshima
in 1690–1, noted that ‘because Japanese maps differ from each other I
cannot establish the shape of this island: in some the island is depicted as
round with many bays; in others it is broken up . . . it is impossible to say
whether these are separate islands’.1 Northern Honshu was in 1600 un-
derdeveloped and underpopulated. Even further south, Edo, the future
capital of Tokugawa Japan (the Tokyo of modern Japan), was a creation
of the seventeenth century, its region – Kanto – itself a somewhat retarded
frontier with the richer and more densely populated south.
To the south of Japan, climate and ease of navigation off the coast of
south China and the East Indies archipelago created a region of active
exchanges in rice, spices, textiles, sugar (in the seventeenth century) and
in gold and silver; from early on economic activity was further diversified
by its attracting traders both from China and from the west, first Arabs,
and later Europeans. The problem for the more northerly countries of
east Asia was how to finance exchanges for the exotic goods of the south.
Requiring both silver and spices, China itself had a trade with the south.
It was an even more serious problem for Japan than for China, because
originally Japan had little to offer. China at least had its prized silks.
The poverty of Japanese trade accounts for the existence of the Wako (sea
pirates described as Japanese, though often Chinese engaged in the Japan
trade with the tolerance of Japanese daimyo or lords) who preyed on
such trade as existed along the coasts of China, and whose destructiveness
led to the prohibition by the Ming government in 1557 of trade with
Japan.2 In China Japanese were excluded, and equally China’s traders, if
they ventured to Japan, were disregarding prohibitions imposed in their
homeland. In Japan Chinese were suspect as the hand of Japan’s ruler,
Hideyoshi, began to fall on domestic rulers and coastal pirates alike in
Kyushu in the 1580s: furthermore, acute fears that an alliance between
daimyo in Kyushu and outside trading interests might disturb the delicate
political balance persisted thereafter.
The payment problems in foreign trade – if not the political complica-
tions – were eased by the sudden advent of great quantities of Spanish
silver, as silver flowed into the region from the time that the Spaniards
made Manila a base of their operations in 1571. Spanish silver was traded
in Manila for silks from China, and a Spanish presence in the western
Pacific grew after 1580 when Portugal fell under Spanish suzerainty for
sixty years. The usefulness of silver as an exchange commodity (in an age
of large military expenditure), combined with the Chinese demand for
it, led to the introduction from Korea of improved techniques in mining
and in refining the metal, and hence to a mining boom in Japan. Possibly
as much as one third of the huge outflow of silver onto world markets in
this period was Japanese.3 This outflow helped to trigger the economic
boom of China from 1570 to 1620 as silver oiled the wheels both of tax
payment and inland exchanges. The coastal regions sold silk and silver
to the inland regions and received payment in rice. Disregard or eva-
sion of the prohibition on trade illustrated the growing weakness of the
Ming imperial dynasty, one which became dramatically evident when the
Manchu challenge to the Ming rulers reached crisis point with the taking
of Peking in 1644. As a result of turmoil and warfare, China’s trade
fluctuated sharply over the years up to the 1680s. The prolongation
of momentum in Japan’s mining boom to mid-century meant that up
to that time Japan’s rulers were not concerned over the export of sil-
ver. As a result, Japan, once a backwater, had became an economic
power house, with an appeal for Europeans as a source of the silver
which held the key to participating in the trade currents of east Asia:
there was also the opportunity of replacing the Chinese traders, sus-
pect in China and Japan alike, in exchanges between the two coun-
tries. The repute of Japan as a mineral-rich country was to haunt the
European imagination for decades after Japan had ceased to have a sur-
plus of silver.
All trade between China and Japan, it must be emphasised, was one
in high-value goods, in essence silk and some gold for silver and copper.
It was, moreover, less a trade with China than a trade with the areas of
Asia frequented by t ̄osen (Chinese vessels): manned by t ̄ojin (Chinese)
