Gonna make this brief. I went to the HS in SF 6 weeks before this. I'm gonna just go to more hot seats after this since I have the pass now. I'm planning on Boston and Austin for now. It's a good reason to travel to different cities.

Anytime RSD is in town I feel like it's different, like it's more of an adventure. It's cool to see Tyler & Co. out at the bars if you happen to run into them. I'm not one to go up and tell them "go approach that girl" like I know some guys do. For me I just get inspired in the venue and go talk to my own girls. Maybe say what's up to tyler or whoever for a minute, which is cool.

This weekend was extra special because Alex was in town, way out from Australia. I think he is cool, it was the first time I've seen him in person. I'm hoping he will be in the U.S. more often. Rumor is that he is going to have some HS event in the U.S. later this year. So stay tuned.

This weekend both Tyler and Alex spoke at Freet Tour, and Alex did a presentation during the Sunday bonus day.

HS was cool even though I just saw it a few weeks ago. Even though Tyler says that his HS event is more "canned" than his FT extemporaneous speeches, his HS is also varied. He went over different points in the videos than he did last time. He told some different stories. And I saw a few different videos. I think maybe I was in tune to learning different things this time, maybe I progressed since last HS so my brain may have been at a new level of learning.

HS is good because it hammers down into your brain the stuff you want to learn, you see videos that focus on certain aspects like opening or whatever. Also see videos on the whole interaction from open to close. Seeing everything go down helps to fill in holes in my brain with my weaknesses and gaps.

When watching HS you feel like you can do that stuff, they make it look so easy. But then you go out and you might rage it pretty hard, but you realize that if you got filmed you would look like an idiot compared to Tyler/Julien/Alex. The RSD instructors have a humbleness about them that makes them cool, but it's easy sometimes to mistake that for them having deep level skills.

Tyler showed some Julien videos that I don't think I saw last time, or I just didn't remember, but they were awesome. Alex's stuff was awesome too, he has his own very unique perspective and Australian background.

The bonus day was really awesome I thought. It really is a bonus. 

The HS event is cool in several ways. One way is this: say you go out on a friday and have a shitty night. You go to HS the next day for many hours ot total hammering of infotainment, and you totally get over whatever bullshit you were mulling over and you move on. That's what HS does for you, it hammers it all into you for the purpose of helping you progress.

When I ran into the rsd bootcamp one night, I got to say a quick what's up to tyler, and then I showed Alex some sweedish girls I met, and I got to be in set with Alex for a minute or two. Cool little adventures for me.  

And one major thing about HS and the whole weekend of RSD events is this: Tyler really knows a lot about a lot. He will hammer a bunch of self improvement stuff into your head and also nutrition and all down the line. You come out of the weekend with a reinforced sense of drive and determination and knowledge.

I wanted to go to this hotseat sooo bad, I had to corner a guy in a mma match.  I hope Tyler will come to DC again.  So what kind of epiphanies did you have Dave?

I'm still sorting out what I learned. These events always push my game and my life ahead pretty strongly to the next level. I've been mulling over a few topics that Tyler talked about at various times. One time he discussed stress and he said something along the lines of being stressed out is a luxury for people that are not busy enough, they have too much free time. That got me thinking that maybe my stress is due to me being too lazy and procrastinating with certain things in my life.
