Dear Co-x3 Family,
This week, we share about how to level up our mindset to constantly grow, seek truth, and be resilient.
It’s been a fantastic week for our community – here are some highlights:
We love co-creating and collaborating with our family to deliver shared value. This week, we had enlightening 1-on-1 brainstorming sessions with many of you to learn how we could improve the Co-x3 experience. Krissa suggested a community glossary of common terms we use in our sharing, and Shania will be starting a 366 daily stoic exercise challenge for those who want to learn about philosophy, perseverance, and the art of living.
We had recently changed our main youtube channel name from ‘Conrad Lin’ to ‘Make Work Fun, Get Stuff Done’ because what we wanted our viewers to take away the idea that we should be enjoying all that we do. This week, Ivan gave the thoughtful suggestion (supported by our community) that we should do one final renaming of our main channel to Co-x3 to align our sharing under one brand and minimize confusion.
Our hearts were warmed this week when we opened up an email from one of our newest members, Mario. Here’s what he had to say.
It’s been such a busy week, but I’m glad I’m going forward step by step. I’m having a great time sharing with all the community. The livestream of today was so valuable. To be honest, at the beginning I thought this community was only focused in Notion and sharing the cool things that can be done here. But I never imagined it was a community where I could learn so many things about life, my personal relationships and the projects I’m involved with. I’m grateful for being in contact and sharing with people like you, that are focused on being more productive and learning new things!
It’s been an amazing journey, and we feel blessed every time we read a comment or receive a new email with such kind words – thank you so much for being awesome!

Office Hours Friday Livestream: Creating A Framework To Ask Critical Questions

Direct Exerpt from: What to say when you talk to yourself
Let’s take something as common as the problem of not being able to remember names. For twenty-five years you may have said to yourself, “I can never remember names.”
Then one evening you go to a party. You are introduced to someone whose name you want to remember and you say to yourself, “I’m going to remember this person’s name.”
What happens ten seconds later? You forget the name! Why? Because for the past twenty-five years you have been telling yourself that that’s what you’ll do.
You have been programming yourself to forget!
Moral of the story? Program yourself with affirmative and positive words, and be mindful when you speak to yourself and others in absolutes.
Let’s get highly motivated to personally develop ourselves, develop accountability, and collaborate to bring positive social impacts to our local and global communities.
