  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan11Post.mp4 Thoreau wrote that most men live lives of quiet desperation. What does this mean, exactly? Most people want things they'll never get. They are desperate for things they don't have. Yet they never do much about it. They are quiet, and they are desperate. Most people are content to do what they are told. Most people's dreams of fame and riches involve somebody else doing most of the work. Young people who want to become actors dream of being discovered. Of doing nothing more than walking down the st
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan10Post.mp4 A long, long time ago, Mother Nature had a decision to make. Our brains were getting really big, really quickly. Too big to be born close to fully formed, like most other mammals. So She had two choices. Make female hips much wider, or make us born much earlier. Since wider hips would have forced us back down on all fours, She, Mother Nature, chose the second option. Of having us born well before we were done "cooking." This is why few of us have a lot of memories before five or so. This is why can't w

  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July4Post.mp4 One of the best feelings as a humans is a feeling of accomplishment. Even if nobody knows but you. Especially if it was something that you weren't sure you could pull off. It's very common in self help metaphors to pretend we are special JUST BECAUSE. But despite how many metaphysical truths we believe about ourselves, we are stuck inside our physical bodies. Our physical bodies require physical things. Food, shelter, and most importantly, money. It would be fantastic if we could just "receive" all that stu
  7. When it comes to eating, there are two kinds of food. The kind that tastes good. And the kind that is good for you. Ideally, getting both in the same thing is best. But hard to find. Plenty of healthy food is dressed up to taste like delicious food, but it's usually an acquired taste. When it comes to choosing romantic partners, the same thing applies. There are people who are GOOD for you, and then there are people who are ATTRACTIVE. The people who are good for you are like healthy food. The people who are attractive are like the delicious food.
  8. A long time ago I took a cooking class. It was pretty interesting, and I learned a lot of techniques. The lady that taught it was VERY specific in her instructions. About year later, I took another course from the same place. Same type of food, but a different teacher. This class was also pretty cool. Different recipes, different classmates, different teacher. I also learned a ton of stuff. The second teacher was much less specific in her instructions. The first teacher was kind of like a chemistry teacher. Exact measurements, temperatures and
  9. There are plenty of rags to riches stories. Carnegie is perhaps the most famous. He came to states from Europe when he was a kid. Before he was finished, he had a fortune that would be worth $200 billion today. He worked any job he could find. He learned anything he could. He invested his money wisely. Of course, luck also played a huge factor, as it inevitably does. He came during the second Industrial Revolution. When oil was a new thing. He combined his intellect, his drive to succeed with being in the right place at the right time. Onc
  10. There are a lot of interesting metaphysical questions. One is the old one about the tree falling in the forest. If it does, and nobody is there, does it make a sound? The actual answer, from science, is no, it does not. How can this be? Sound, and everything else we "perceive" are really internally generated. In order for "sound" to exist, there has to be a measuring device. If a tree falls, it will make pressure waves vibrate through the air. Those happen whether somebody there or not. But in order for this pressure waves to be turned into sound, t
  11. Most people have heard about the four levels of learning. Unconscious incompetence, when you don't know you suck. Conscious incompetence, when you know that you suck. Conscious competence, when you don't suck, but you've got to use all your brain power to not suck. Then unconscious competence, where you can do it fairly well without needing to think. Many things that we learn come through these four categories. Tying your shoes, writing, driving, riding a bicycle, making a burrito. But there are some skills we come pre-programmed with. Like communication
  12. To get rid of limiting beliefs, you first need to find them. One way is to make a couple of assumptions. That the way beliefs manifest themselves in how your life IS. Not how you imagine it MIGHT be, but how it is. This can be tricky. Because one way we cover up limiting beliefs is by pretending we don't have them. This happens mainly in social situations. If you see an attractive person across the room, and you exchange some flirty non-verbal behavior. If you DON'T approach, it's rare to admit that you are limited by your fears. And those fears are
  13. Our language, and our world, is more filled with metaphors than we realize. Problems happen when we mistake metaphor for reality. So long as we are using metaphors to talk ABOUT something, they're fine. But if we are trying to use metaphors as guiding principles, that's when we run into trouble. The red car idea is a common way to describe our filters. How we separate the important stuff from all the noise. For example, somebody doesn't notice all the red cars. Then they buy a red car. Then they suddenly notice all the red cars. Before, they didn't
  14. If you were to train a dog, you would use something called "operant conditioning." Meaning that when the dog did something you liked, you would give it a positive reward. And when he did something you didn't like, you would give negative feedback. But you would need to make it seem random. If you gave him a doggie treat with every good behavior, the dog would EXPECT the good behavior. So you have to be careful and SLOWLY decrease the frequency. At first, when the dog sits, you say, "good dog," and give him a doggie treat. Then when he sits, you only say, "goo
  15. If you're a baseball fan, then you know players are pretty superstitious. Especially when they are on a streak. This is most interesting when a pitcher is six or seven innings into a no-hitter or a perfect game. They, and all the other players, start to act very carefully. They are afraid of messing up the string of good luck. I had a friend once. We were at the racetrack. We had chosen the sixth horse in the sixth race. Something had happened that day six times. We thought this meant we were GUARANTEED to win. But then RIGHT BEFORE the race st
  16. Resistance can come in many forms. When you are exercising, resistance is welcome. For example, they have those stair climbing machines at the gym. You can watch the hill profile as you are working out. The feeling of switching from uphill to downhill feels pretty good. When you are purposely working uphill, just so you can go downhill, this is also pretty fun. I used to do a lot of cycling. And I lived in an area that had a LOT of hills. Very long and winding hills. One particular loop ended with the perfect long downhill. No lights, no cross
  17. 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
  18. Imagine learning something easy, like juggling. Juggling is a common thing to learn in many self-development seminars. It's kind of "proof" that you can learn something new. It's difficult enough so that when you CAN juggle, you get kind of an excited feeling. That, "I never thought I'd be able to do this feeling." But it's also easy enough to learn in an hour or so. So long as you practice with enough focus. Even better is if you can get up and perform in front of the other seminar attendees. This gives you an "experience" of not only learning a skill y
  19. There are a lot of metaphors that describe how beliefs are passed on. One is about cooking something. There was a woman that was cooking a loaf of bread. And she was using a very small pan. Somebody asked her why, and she said she didn't know. She just always did it that way. Then with a few simple questions, they (the lady and person she was talking to) figured it out. Her mom had told her that you had to use a specific pan. So when she grew up, she always used a specific pan. But then they found out that the mom used that specific pan because it w
  20. One of the features of us humans is we have a big brain. So big, that long ago we had to be born WAY before we were done. Our brains are still developing AFTER we are born for a long time. Other animals, not so much. They are born, and before long they are good to go. But not us humans. The Jesuits had a saying, "Give me a child at birth and I'll make him a soldier of Christ by seven." Or something like that. What this REALLY means is WHATEVER we soak up into our brains from birth until mid adolescence will be treated AS IF it were an instinct. This

  22. What's the difference between studying and doing? Once you become a doctor, you have a couple of choices. You can work at a hospital, or you can go into private "practice." Why do they call it "practice?" Don't doctors have to take tests and do long and grueling internships to prove they already know what they are doing? That's just to get started. Every patient is different. Sometimes they see things they've never seen in medical school. They check with colleagues, read up on the latest research. No doctor ever gets to a point in their career where
