Weekly update for July 24, 2021

Here’s your weekly update on happenings from at Michael Korman Headquarters.

It’s a bit late, if you haven’t noticed.

Hope it makes your week.


I’m looking for people who are willing to have a conversation with me and answer some questions. It will take 30 minutes, and it will help me make things that will help more people. Please sign up if you are interested in helping me with this.

I’ve resumed the @katie.sula.exists posting.

Facebook posts

“Please stop posting about everything great in your lives. You’re making the world worse.”

Blog post: Why You Don’t Have Enough Money and why you’re not letting yourself have enough

Those moments when you spend money are the ones that shape your attitude toward money.

Rather than “I have to spend this money”, it should be “I get to spend this money.”

Don’t spend to maintain your lifestyle. That’s feeding an addiction. Spend to make the world better. Give money to charity.

Don’t pay rent to avoid being homeless. Pay it because now you get to come inside and keep your stuff there for another month. (Read more)


I’m on Medium.

New podcast episode (Loneliness and Social Anxiety)

Is loneliness good or bad? Social anxiety. Could you survive on a desert island? Should white people be singing spirituals? Finding flow in your speaking (like Rush Limbaugh). Amplifying your singing and speaking voices. (Listen)

Getting Unstuck on Writing

An online workshop for writers (novelists, Instagram influencers, piano teachers, etc.) who get stuck. (Learn more)

Here are some of my favorite tweets from the weeks.

  • The biggest #NVC mistake people make is thinking that empathy means “getting confirmation from the other person that you understand them”, or even worse, “getting the other person to stop yelling at you.”
  • I’m in need of empathy and you whiny bitches are going to suffer until I figure out a way to get it.
  • I’m no longer open to talking to piano teachers about piano or singing teachers about singing. You guys are too entrenched in your views and have too much territory to defend.
  • Habits don’t happen because of repetition! But, repetition can help you discover what DOES make the habit happen. #habits
