So I've taken the last month off of front page posting, to take a break and also to allow Jeff some space to hit up the new Jeffy Free Tour and Jeffy Hot Seat (which will be really bomb -- particularly for people in Canada / Europe / Australia because I don't make it out there due to having an army of kids).

Tommorow I'm hoping to start up posting again though, probably Monday's to give Jeff the Wednesday spot.  But maybe I'll do Wednesday and get Jeff to hit up Mondays -- we'll talk it over.

I've got the following videos on deck that I'm psyched about............

-Seattle Free Tour (this is maybe my best Free Tour vid so far.  REALLY like this one -- some sick shit in there and the speaking is the best I've done).
-Cisco Systems speach that I did -- I wanna hit up a few clips from it with me dressed all chodey professional and talking to the corporate crowd.  Sort of a trip to see me doing this.
-Hawaii Free Tour -- had some nice stuff in here, and good impressions of Japanese girls :)
-Napali Coast video blog on "self acceptance vs self improvement" -- shot this along the big mountains, super gorgeous to look at
-Napali Coast video blog about "reading" that I shot by a stream I spent several days reading by...It's like half an hour long
-Waikiki video that I shot on the topic of "being the chariot rider" -- ie: how to control your brain and make it do what it wants

This should cover me for six weeks while I record new videos at the Austin and Atlanta events I have coming up.  I think I'll post up the Napali Coast video first because I'm coming back to posting after vacation, so it'll show where I've been at.  The video includes a minute of infield footage to test the waters of how people like the infield bursts that I want to include in the newbie website I'm working on -- I included a video of me opening a girl by doing very little, to show how the "self acceptance" side comes into play in outer game.

(The video also has me covered in sunscreen on my face while I'm out in Napali, looking like I just sucked someone's dick.  It's pretty amazing.)

I've been thinking a lot about how to take the video blogs and Free Tour clips to the next level lately.  The Free Tour clips are kind of unique because in order to maintain the pace of always having new content I go into the Free Tour with 30% canned material, but try to do 70% totally new.  This challenges me because I'm literally INVENTING content ON THE SPOT.  It results in more "ums and awwws" and "likes" in the speaking, but at the same time I'm able to maintain a pace of new material constantly.

I actually did this to "try something new" -- ie: put out new content constantly, but not as high quality as with material that I've polished and canned from several times delivering it.

Like with say, Blueprint or Foundations, I'd deliverered the content many times before recording it so it was more streamlined and easy to comprehend.  WIth the Free Tour videos I try to crack a lot of jokes and make it more like "infotainment" to keep guys on track, rather than a comprensive step by step program.  I wanted to do this though because it took me 4 years to do Blueprint and I'd sort of "been there, done that..." as far as creating a well developed program.

The challenge with Free Tour is I'll try to "formulate a new bit" and then articulate it in one big shot, with jokes interlaced and without too many pauses to think about it.  So I'll feel some new idea coming on, and then try to slam it out and make it APPEAR as though it's a well polished bit of material that I've given before, even though it's new.  I get really amped up doing this because when I feel something sharp coming out it's kind of a rush.

This sort of aligns with how guys like Little Wayne just put out song after song, guest appearance after guest appearance, and some of them catch on and some don't.  By just cranking out videos I've found that some that I thought were decent were really well received, whereas some I thought were brilliant didn't really connect.  It's also giving me a better idea of how to relate to people and keeping me growing continually in my presentation skills.  It's like how Kanye West keeps cranking out material so he improves, whereas Dr Dre keeps his new material on lockdown but he's gotten lost as to what will connect with people.  The lack of response (or even criticism -- if it's constructive) that you get from putting out something not up to par allows you to quickly modify and adapt, as opposed to being trapped up in your head.

I think that with the internet people are very A.D.D. and lose attention quickly, so part of being a "modern teacher" (who stays relevant) is cultivating the ability to quickly produce new content and SHIP IT FAST.  If you can't produce content on the level of something like Blueprint consistently that's okay because it's not realistic, but you can make your new ideas funny or use interesting backgrounds to make it more memorable and visually interesting.  (Since it IS realistic to make that happen on a consistent basis).

Over time I'd like to put out another well polished presentation, like a Blueprint 2 type of program (maybe a different name -- but that type of concept), and I think that with the practice I've put in with all the Free Tour vids it could really exceed the original Blueprint.  I already have an outline of new material that's ultra dense and too complex for a Free Tour video, which I think I could eventually put out.  This could also be the segway into the self development material that's coming in the next few years.

Anyway it's interesting because I used to fear doing video blogs and am NOT natural with it like doods like Tim, Alex, Jeff, etc, who are so natural at speaking into an empty camera with nobody else around.  The shit weirded me out for the first few months but I kept working on it by speaking into the camera regularly and wrapping my head around it.  Then I started challenging myself to record "on the spot" in new locations, to keep the videos different and also to help people to retain what they learned, because their brains can be like "This is the concept from the Brooklyn Bridge..." etc.
 
I'd do crazy shit like walk through places I'm not supposed to record, knowing I'm going to get kicked out, and try to nail the video in one take before it happened -- like those videos I shot for the Miami Bootcamp I was actually kicked out of the Delano for recording them, but just spoke totally normal EVEN AS THE SECURITY TEAM WAS APPROACHING ME TO KICK ME OUT. :)  I also feel the pressure of having very little time to record in a new city because I'd be busy all weekend, so just run out to record right after bootcamp while I'm tired on little sleep.  This has taught me not to make excuses, just crank something out as best I can and see how it goes.  I also love how I record while everyone stares at me in a weird way, and just talk as if they're not listening.  It's good for the soul. :)

Now that I've got this down to a decent level I want to start encorporating more changing environments, maybe bring in graphics or music.  Although I also feel like a great video doesn't rely on this to keep it engaging -- I want my speaking to hold people's attention.  It's like how American Italian food needs a lot of sauce to cover up that the food quality isn't as good, as opposed to Coastal Italian food where you only use a bit of lemon juice because it's so fresh and you want to emphasize it.  Overall I want to get my content delivery on the level where I require minimal editing, but whatever additional graphics and music I use can be a part of the overall artistic design.

We have a lot of funny moments with us and the crew that I want to interlace so that it shows more personality.  I know I read a lot of comments that people want to see more what my personality is like, as opposed to just being a public speaker, so I'll try to include more of that as well.  Hopefully I can just keep building on it to a point where when I'm in my mid thirties and fourties I can produce the type of value that takes years of repetition to produce -- similar to how I built my game to a zone where it offers value to people because I've just put in so many hours in improving on it.

So yeah, hope you're psyched for the new front page stuff on deck.  PLEASE let me know if you have any ideas that you think could be good to continually improve the video content, or any constructive feedback you have / types of videos you'd like to see / etc.  I'm in this for the long haul so it's always good hear people's ideas. :)

How to eliminate every little "weird pua" thing about yourself you might have
Alcohol vs no alcohol
What kind of things you want to focus on when you're a young guy getting into this stuff that might differ from being an older gentleman?
How important do you think testosterone levels or raising them are for succeeding at this?

 How to stop yourself thinking that this is weird (I have a massive problem with this for like the first hour in field, particularly in the day I just feel creepy and like all this PUA stuff is not normal)
How to cement new beleifs and act on them
How to deal with violenct chode boyfriends in the club

A video adressing all the mental masterbators would be cool to, too many people on this forum and taken to Tolle worship in a huge misunderstanding of your videos and ideas.

A few things.

-I would like to be able to intro people to the deeper ideas behind RSD. Not even about dating.. about LIFE and how to be successful at it. People like my parents...conservative friends..etc. Will the newbie site still be too far out of most peoples reality where they will rationalize it as weird (pua shit)? ...Will I have to wait for your self help days before I start sending everyone I know to learn from you?

-psyched for all the video drops, I always learn so much from watching you(r thought processes).. especially Seattle because I dont believe you that its better than the SF tour... We will have to see I guess. :) Weirdly Im more stoked for the Cisco speech, it will give me an idea of how you and said 'deeper ideas' go over with the 'mainstream,' something that is honestly really important to me because RSD is the closest thing Ive ever found to proving 'If you believe in yourself, you can accomplish anything.' Which is the opposite mindset of 'fuck my life, this shit sucks, i hope i get in a car accident today so I dont have to do x shitty thing and live in x shitty way for EVER' (which is QUITE mainstream, with people having varying degrees of seriousness in thinking those thoughts). Its revolutionary. People can accomplish what they desire to. You can live the life you want to. You can be happy. We can ALL be happy. (okay i may be stretching it)...

I see myself going down a somewhat similar path as you -- helping people...but in a way that hasnt been invented yet..if it had been invented I would have known about it because it would have changed my life. (like your free tour videos / hot seat... you created an entirely new THING where all of a sudden after 30 min in front of the computer/10 hours in a hotel room, i can have an entirely new paradigm about life/girls depending on how well you executed all the factors of good communication (humor, clarity of thought, etc.... dont really know all the factors otherwise I would be owen cook). -- I recognize that to travel my path I will need certain SPECIFIC skills that you coincidentally happen to be developing right now, such as conveying ideas more clearly, verbally and through writing, through video and all other forms of media. These little similarites are what make me super grateful to have found RSD cuz I dont know how I would have found my way otherwise.

Theres getting your idea out there in the best way possible, and theres developing the greatest idea you possibly can, boiling it down, discarding the false and pursuing the little nuggets of truth. And theres the combination of the two. As of now I dont have that many clear ideas, they are all hazy and less-than-half-formed, I can already tell I wont be able to communicate some of the deeper ones for a long, long time. Again, I dont even know what Im exactly talking about here. Some guys think of video games all day, honestly this is what I think of all day...How can I save the world. How can I become CHRIST-like in my ability to change things with ease, and on a mass scale. If dreams can really come true than I am in for a treat. Otherwise I will die a bitter old man who saved noone. Lol.

I mean Im young and dumb so I may be naive but at the rate I see you improving I imagine one day you being able to change the very fiber of a persons being by simply being in their presence. Like straight superhero shit, no joke. But man I believe in it. You already do it on a lower level than what Im talking about. It was seeing you speak live that confirmed that it IS possible. If some random guy can turn from chode to whatEVER the fuck you are now (saw you call yourself a phantom in another thread, perfect description.. dont know why.....its actually perfect tho) and hes only been in it 10 years, then for sure its possible to get where I want to go with a whole LIFE ahead of me.

Something Ill add is your words and tonality and delivery together are very inspiring sometimes (to me its all inspiring but there have been certain lines that gave me chills and shit.) With music and creative editing I could imagine a video perfect for getting your name out in a non pua kind of a way. Itd be cool to see you sitting down and having a conversation. I realized Id never really heard you have a real conversation. Maybe I have but it doesnt seem like it. Like a talk radio or podcast format.

Okay enough rambling..... I cant help it, you bring it out of me :) Take what you can from this, hopefully some of it made sense and can help...

I really liked those 2 videos http://www.rsdnation.com/tyler/blog/2-videos-new-article-creating-ultima...

They helped me A LOT and motivated me not to be a little about some girl I really, really like (and which has a boyfriend).

I would LOVE to see a video on working hard, being a productive person and not giving up so fast because taking action is my biggest sticking point and I feel that this is the most important key to everything. It's just too easy to say stuff like "you don't want it bad enough" or "you just gotta do it". I would like to see something about this topic and I have never seen something that actually helped me in that area.

It's funny what you said about the vids connecting with people. I remember the week before you posted this



how you said it will kinda suck, that you were half out of it. For me, after watching it about 5 times, it really hit home. The concept that most people walk almost 'asleep' most of the time, ignoring the fact that they suck at life basically. So when meeting women or taking on something challenging you might find that you suck shit and need to improve. And that is a good thing and it makes you grow. Realizing that you suck propels you to take action and step up your game, focus your efforts in one area rather then ignoring the whole aspect and stagnating. 

Def psyched for the new articles and vids
