Dan Benjamin interviews Merlin Mann of 43 Folders and Inbox Zero.
He doesn’t fully grasp what the seduction community is about, but there is truth in what he says.
For example, the Mystery Method fully deserves to be crapped upon and one can empathize with Merlin even if one doesn’t agree with him wholesale.
He’s an insightful guy, if you cut him some slack on this topic.
The "community" can handle it, really.
And let’s be honest: most guys in the "community" are bumbling fools who don’t understand the first thing about real self-improvement—even if there are exceptions.
Anyway, Merlin’s thesis remains valid.
It doesn’t require tearing down others; he just chose to dismantle his own (somewhat true) concept of the "community" to illustrate what to do better.
That’s what we should all be focusing on anyway: how can I do better?
How can you?
In August 2012, Brett interviewed Merlin Mann on the now-legendary 6th episode of Systematic. Thus was a trilogy born. From processes to pills and apps to naps, one of Systematic’s signature returning-guest series was born.
Using the latest in bleeding-edge digital technology, we have restored these episodes to the original creative vision that was literally, figuratively, and metaphysically impossible at the time.
We’ve gone all the way back to the original masters, removing and modifying content (ads) that distracts from the auteur’s intent. What results is a bespoke, artisanally created Special Edition product unlike any in the crowded Merlin Mann Podcast market today.
This presentation of The Original Trilogy of Merlin Mann includes bonus, never-before-heard, ultra-exclusive deleted content, presented in the most ridiculous and semi-obtrusive way possible that does not involve a Blu-ray player.
Special Thanks to George Lucas, the Fair Use Clause, The United States of America, and The Merlin Mann Trust.

The enfant terrible of physics describes how his sense of continuous wonder, his childlike curiosity about everything, led him inevitably to a life in science.

A new “Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens” trailer as appeared! And, as was fated, we are here to deconstruct it within an inch of its life. Dark Side IKEA end tables! John Boyega quotes us the odds! Bespoke evil ships! And is that a glimmer in your eye, or just some lens flare? Plus we give some love to BB8, everyone’s favorite robotic soccer ball.
Dan Moren reports in from the Star Wars celebration, and Serenity Caldwell phones in from her car. This is serious business, people.
Dan Benjamin and Merlin Mann talk about The Big Lebowski, which is just, like, their opinion, man.
Interview with David Allen, productivity guru, about the updated (2015) version of the book Getting Things Done.
In which we talk with the brilliantly undefinable Merlin Mann for his amazing insight, advice, and dissection of the areas of productivity, motivation, and just trying to get there. As he tackles our questions, we get a dose of some classic Merlin-Maning.
