Well, not quite 16 years.
16 years, one month and a few days.
But 16 years ago, this is approximately how it all started.
I gave a presentation. I was asked for notes. I didn't have notes.
I wrote a document. Whether this was the exact document, I'm not sure.
But it's close enough.
This document goes all the way back to 2002.
- Notice how The Brain Audit—today's version of The Brain Audit—is sandwiched between pages 16-19. Four pages,
- over time, expanded to 180 pages.
- Notice how the 12 out of 29 pages are just “filler pages”. So the real book was only 17 pages or so.
This book doesn't look like the humblest of beginnings, I'll admit.
It still looks pretty good, even after all of these years. But take a trip back into time and see how a single book has given us a life far beyond our imagination. And how this book has generated over $600,0000 all by itself. And then get started with your own 17 pager + 12 pages of filler material.
16 years pass pretty quickly, you know.

P.S. If you have a current copy of The Brain Audit, you'll see how much has changed. But back then this is all I knew. All I could do. I hope you do all you can do today and make this story your inspiration for the years to come.
