  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb19_Post.mp4 There's something in economics they call "excess capacity." Like if the economy is booming, and everybody is building. Say you built a bowling ball factory during the booming economy. This isn't as silly a metaphor as you might think. One of the things that boomed during the post WWII boom were bowling alleys. And when the economy is growing it makes sense to keep building. But when the economy shrinks, it's kind of hard shift on a dime. So, suppose your bowling ball factory is capable of producing 1,000,0
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug11APost.mp4 Way back when I was in high school, my buddies and I loved the movie, "Mad Max." Not the Road Warrior, which came up back when I was in high school. But the original, part one, Mad Max. With a then completely unknown Mel Gibson. On some of the tapes we'd get, they would dub over his native Australian accent with an American one. My buddies were serious motor heads. They LOVED the part where Max saw his car for the first time. With the "blower." The part that would force air into the cylinders, and giv
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug10APost.mp4 Most, if not all, of self-help products are consumed "as if" they are entertainment. This is why self help CAN be like an addiction. But other self help is the opposite. The phrase, "self help" is very, very vague. From a purely objective standpoint, it means any thing you do, on your own, to "help" or "improve" yourself. Exercise clearly belongs in this category. If you join the military, or are on a sports team, somebody ELSE will want you to do exercises. Because they benefit from your healthier and
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug09APost.mp4 Chaos theory is a cool concept. It's based on the idea that we humans don't have the math to predict pretty much anything. Like weather for example. Weather is bound by multiple, interdependent variables. One of the variables, say, humidity, changes. And that in turn changes all the rest. Temperature, pressure, wind speed and direction, etc. Before they discovered chaos theory, they got excited when they started building really powerful computers. They figured they would be able to predict the weathe
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug08APost.mp4 There's a kind of popular self help saying that, "the wake doesn't drive the boat." Which kind of means that what happened before doesn't necessarily impact what is going to happen in the future. And like many easy to remember and repeat "truisms" this one is too vague to be of any use. If you were actually driving a boat, you wouldn't even care about the wake. You point the ship or boat where you want to go, and steer accordingly. But humans are not boats. Human memory is very important. And our entire pe
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug07APost.mp4 It can be argued that the main source of all modern problems is instinct mismatch. Our instincts, that were calibrated for a much different environment are not well suited for our modern life. Back in the day, eating as much as you can, whenever you could, so long as it tasted good was a FINE strategy. Those who had this instinct would survive every well. They were always hungry, always tasting thing, and when they found something that tasted GOOD, they are as much of it as they could. This "good taste" was calibrat
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug06Post.mp4 There's a really messed up term in biology. Eusociality. Why is it messed up? Well, it isn't really, it's just one way Mother Nature has figured out how to organize people. Well, not people, but certain insects and maybe a few mammals. Like ants, bees, wasps, etc. From an organizational standpoint, it makes for a highly efficient group. Everybody comes pre-programmed with their "life's purpose." For worker ants, for example, their life's purpose is to work. To NEVER get laid. If you are human
  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug05Post.mp4 One of my favorite "reframes" is near the end of the last Harry Potter book. Harry is dead, or he thinks he's dead. His mentor, Dumbledore, appears to him. And in an all white, heavenized version of the train station, Dumbledore explains everything to the bewildered Harry. Then Harry asks: "Is this real? Or is this my imagination?" Dumbledore replies with the wizard reframe: "Of course it's your imagination! But that doesn't mean it isn't real!" If you've ever been to a stage hypnotist show, they can g
  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug04Post.mp4 One of the biggest problems of modern society is most humans are under developed. We were calibrated in a much different environment. A much harsher environment. A, "if you don't kill, you don't eat" environment. Under those ancient, harsh conditions, humans were forced to grow up as quickly as possible. To take responsibility as quickly as possible. Today it's the opposite. Today, we are brainwashed from birth to stay as helpless as possible. To develop as LITTLE self-responsibility as possible.
  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug03Post.mp4 A couple decades ago, the U.S. congress was talking about porn. This was long before the internet. They had a problem of defining porn. When you create and pass a law, you have to be pretty precise. If you aren't it can lead to serious trouble. For example, in one of the many insurance lawsuits that came after 911, one of the key elements was hinged on an interpretation. The point of contention was when both of the twin towers fell, was that "one" event, or "two" events. The insurance companies, of cours
  12. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug02Post.mp4 Most of "game" is reversed engineered from folks who are naturally successful. Most of sales is reversed engineered from folks who are naturally successful. This idea, of copying what works, is as old as time. The first guy who invented a spear probably copied from somewhere else. Maybe he was chasing some deer, the deer tripped and accidentally impaled himself on a tree branch. Then the cave guy thought: "Damn! Why didn't I think of that!" He tried it, and it worked. Everybody else copied him. Th
  13. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Aug01Post.mp4 I used to have this boss that everybody hated. She was the owner of the small company, one she inherited. I'd only worked there a year, but even in that time the business had shrunk. I don't know what the deal was between her and the previous partner, but she didn't have much of a clue about business, or general life in general. She'd make really bad decisions, and get angry if people would try and explain to her why they were bad decisions that would cost EVERYBODY money. For example, she had a rule that we had to A
  14. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July29Post.mp4 There are a lot of sayings in the self development area that are kind of true. But there are also some that are dangerous. One of them is about fear. "Do the thing you fear, and the death of fear is certain." This CAN be helpful if it gives you the motivation to move forward. But it's also a bit too vague. From a purely biological point of view, you don't really "kill" fear when you "do the thing you fear." You do something that's scary. This creates a lot of adrenaline. That adrenaline CAN be a
  15. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun04Post.mp4 Steve Martin made a movie a long, long time ago called, "The Lonely Guy." He didn't have any friends. He'd go out eat by himself. He'd have a "cover" that he was a food critic. But that was after he'd sat down. When he'd walk in, and ask for a table for one, everybody would stop. All the people in the restaurant, in the middle of their conversations, would stop and look at him. They'd even have a spotlight on him. This is how it feels for most of us, when we go social places alone. "Hey! Who is

  18. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept02Post.mp4 We humans have a lot of biases. Once upon a time, they were pretty helpful. If you were wandering through some random jungle looking for bananas, you would have two powerful filters. One of them would be anything that looked yellow. That might be a banana. The other would be for something that looked orange. That might be a tiger. These two biases would help you find food, and keep you from being food. When our environment was food and animals, our biases worked PERFECTLY. But now our environment
  19. Anxiety can significantly mess things up. But from looking at it from the inside, this is true, but because you're also in a state of anxiety, it's impossible to see how or why. Which makes solutions from this state seem impossible. One of Einstein's famous sayings is you can't solve a problem from the same mindset that created the problem. This makes things even worse. If you are in a state of anxiety, you make less than optimal decisions. These decisions can make things worse. Those worse things will create more anxiety. Next thing you know you're swir
  20. I had a boss a while ago that wasn't very computer literate. Not only that, but she had her own PC, and the PC the rest of us in the office had to use. She would always put new programs on the group PC. When we would complain, she would always act like our complaints were unfounded. "But it just runs in the background," she would say. As if not seeing a program running means you wouldn't be influenced by it. Since she didn't use that particular computer, she didn't experience how utterly slow all these other programs made it. We'd be trying to do our work, an

  22. Cialdini laws can be used to explain quite a bit of human behavior. They are essentially instincts that regulate our social behavior. William James, a philosopher and metaphysician from about a hundred years ago, said that humans have both a ton of learning capacity and a ton of instincts. Every other animal has mostly instincts. We have tons of learning because our brains are still forming for the first couple decades of our lives. Which means our instincts are more or less programmable. We need food, but we can choose a whole bunch of different food. We nee
  23. The world is in a strange place. Only a hundred years or so ago, it was perfectly fine to just show up. You did what you were told, and you'd have a job and family. Today, there is very little structure to anything. Everybody does whatever they want. There doesn't seem to be any rules. This is both good and bad. Good because you can get away with a lot of stuff that you couldn't get away with a hundred years or so ago. Bad because there are few external incentives keeping people on track. With the right external incentives, normally hard stuff can b
  24. In many disciplines, they have the idea of an "S curve." It represents any kind of growth. It starts out moving left to right, slowly increasing. Then something significant happens, and the growth increases a lot, going up, rather than across. Then it reaches a saturation level, and levels off, but still goes up a bit. Overall it, looks like an "S." That bottom curve is the best part. The bottom part before the curve is the HARDEST part. Where you're working and working and only SLIGHTLY getting better. So when you start to see REAL results, it feel
