USER’S MANUAL FOR THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE – audio book chapters

“USER’S MANUAL FOR THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE” Chapter 2 – New Year’s Resolutions Don’t Work

So, Neema couldn’t make it today, and Ben Stone had a last-minute thing, so today’s show was Michael W. Dean reading from his groundbreaking 2009 libertarian self-help book, A USER’S MANUAL FOR THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE (GET THE PAPERBACK OF THE BOOK on Amazon, HERE.)

Learn why our system makes life a fun “work in progress” rather than committing to hard lines that cannot change. Also we define our terms, Practical Emotional Self-Defense, Serenity Vampires, Soul Mosquitoes, LifeAmp, Organization Building, and more. We learn a little about all of these. We define “who this book is for” (hint: about 85% of the world, but not everyone.) We learn why Michael is qualified to write this book, and then begin to discover a bit of life-changing good stuff.

“USER’S MANUAL FOR THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE” Chapter 17 – LETTER TO A YOUNG ME

A between-episodes treat from the Freedom Feens Podcast. THE END OF THE BOOK: Chapter 17 – LETTER TO A YOUNG ME, A USER’S MANUAL FOR THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE, Audio book read by the author, Michael W. Dean.

Here the author goes BRAVELY AND SWEETLY INTO THE PAST. He sits down with his morning coffee at age 44 and writes a wise and loving letter to himself at 22 (knowing full well that himself at 22 wouldn’t listen to what “some old guy” has to say!). We end this chapter (and the book) with the author at age 44 receiving a wise and loving letter from the future, from himself at age 60. The author at 44 actually DOES listen to some of that. Then the author and his wife sit down and tell you the wonderful things predicted in the book that have actually HAPPENED by LIVING THE BOOK since the book came out! And THAT’S ALL FOLKS!

“USER’S MANUAL FOR THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE” Second half of Chapter 16 – Organization Building – New Uses For Old Tools

A between-episodes treat from the Freedom Feens Podcast. Second half of Chapter 16 – Organization Building – New Uses For Old Tools, A USER’S MANUAL FOR THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE, Audio book read by the author, Michael W. Dean.

We continue to present ways to “herd cats” in any organization from the smallest to the biggest, from the local to the global (and beyond!). We also talk about priorities, fighting only the fights worth fighting (which is different from only fighting fights we can win). Also how to AVOID fights, even when working with people who disagree.

“Group-dynamic games” are exercises where a “team building consultant” is hired to come into a company for a few days and lead employees through problem-solving exercises. The goal is to try and learn to work together more effectively. WE AREN’T GOING TO DO THAT. WE AREN’T PLAYING GAMES HERE. This is THE REAL DEAL. ORGANIZATION BUILDING is more about working with simple voluntary bylaws from the beginning. Using The Only Two Rules in Life with AA’s 12 Traditions can be very effective for Org Building.

A between-episodes treat from the Freedom Feens Podcast. First half of Chapter 14 – Time Management for Calm and Profit, A USER’S MANUAL FOR THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE, Audio book read by the author, Michael W. Dean.

In this chapter, I’m going to give you some more of my patented work philosophy – some “punk rock cheerleading.” Then we’ll get down to business with some serious step-by-step time-management ideas (including The Dean One-Page Plan). You could skip the theory part and go straight to THE PLAN, but you know by now how I work, so you know I think it’s all equally important. Besides, I’ll also make sure it’s all FUN.

“USER’S MANUAL FOR THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE” Chapter 12 – Stop Being a Victim

A between-episodes treat from the Freedom Feens Podcast. Chapter 12 – Stop Being a Victim, A USER’S MANUAL FOR THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE, Audio book read by the author, Michael W. Dean.

Professional victims make a career out of reenacting their grief. Over and over. They do it in real time, too: relive each tear, each torment, and then “see the light”, all as a tiny three-act play. They live on “redemption in the third act.” And the more horrific the first two acts are, the more talk-show engagements they’ll get, and the more books they’ll sell. Learn how to spot and avoid all types of victimhood (professional AND amateur), and learn how to delete any victimhood in yourself. Your life will be much happier and more productive.

BULLIES AREN’T JUST PEOPLE WHO BEAT YOU UP. You are your own property. Anyone who invades your mind or wastes your time is trespassing and stealing.

A between-episodes treat from the Freedom Feens Podcast. Chapter 10 – Hardcore Recovery Without Meetings, second half of chapter. A USER’S MANUAL FOR THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE, Audio book read by the author, Michael W. Dean.

Dealing with death. Is something “God’s Will”? Prayer. Pet therapy. The stunning majesty of cats and the healing power of beasts. How can you be sad? More ways of changing your ways. The uselessness of opinions. CUTTING OFF DAMAGED GOODS. Dealing with liars. If you falter, do not feel defeated, life is a moving target. My average day sober is far better than my average day loaded.

Is life fair? Expectations are appointments with resentments. How to know the difference between apologies and amends (don’t TELL them what you’re going to do, ASK them what you can do). How to change your “playmates and playgrounds.” How to avoid the bullies who “bump into you, spill their OWN milk, and then sue YOU for your lunch money.” Becoming human. Giving back.
