This summer we ran the Alpha version of the Twoplus Mental Fitness course. 

The goal was to help participants develop habits that would improve their mental health in the short and long term, all while working in DAOs and the rest of Web3.

“Twoplus is a mental fitness cohort for people who contribute to DAOs and work in Web3. {…} That really opened my eyes to how poorly I was managing my time and my energy” - Livster, Social Media Manager, PoolTogether Podcast ep. #33 (13’)

The feedback we received is full of learnings and we’re going to double down with a new version of the program in November (applications now open here). But first, here is a quick retrospective on the Alpha.

Good Mental health is fundamental to our lives and careers. It is a prerequisite for us to achieve ambitious goals, ​​sustain relationships and meaningfully contribute to our communities.

Yet today mental health in DAOs is under siege and a better future of work is compromised by the many challenges present both in DAOs and the contributor lifestyle.

In this article we provide an overview of what we consider to be some of the most valuable skills DAO contributor can develop and use in today’s DAO space. For each of the 3 skill categories we provide a high-level introduction and briefly touch on corresponding tactics and practices.

"We shape our tools, thereafter our tools shape us"

You've likely heard this apocryphal quote before (mistakenly attributed to the legendary Marshall McLuhan but in actuality from John Culkin, a professor of communication and friend of McLuhan).

What it does, so succinctly, is expose the reflexive nature of the relationship between builder and tool, the co-evolution (or intervolution) between us and our creations. Think about the innovation of the car for an instant: we invented it about a century ago, but since then it has shaped our world by defining cities (i.e. parkings and malls), sprouting new industries (i.e oil companies) and creating new behaviors (i.e. drive-ins). The second-order and third-order effects of the invention of the car are simply mind blowing.

Software is the same. We shape it, and then it shapes us in more ways than we realize. We built cloud collaboration, video calls and messaging apps and they changed the way we work. But that's not all — now they're also changing the way capital gets raised, how offices get built and the places people decide to settle.

2021: Pioneering the new wave of DAOs

The DAO space has been expanding at a crazy pace in 2021.

From a handful of contributors to hundreds. From a couple burgeoning Discord communities to billions of dollars in treasuries. Until recently, DAOs seemed to be on an unstoppable trajectory.
