  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov01Post.mp4 I was watching this discussion the other day. A couple of guys on TV were talking about the problems most people have. One guy was saying it's because we don't get enough sleep. Another guy was saying it's because we eat crap food. Another guy said it was because everybody's broke. It reminded me of a video series I was watching on differential equations. A simple example is the predator prey problem. You've got grass, which is dependent on the rain. You've got rabbits, which eat the grass. And you've got foxes, which eat the rabbits. A change in rain will change the grass, which will change the rabbits, which will change the foxes. Three of the four variables (foxes, rabbits, grass) are interdependent. Change one, and you change other three. But they are also dependent on the rain, which is a function of weather. Something that super genius humans with super powerful computers have trouble predicting. This problem, a system of three or more interdependent variables, is what led to the idea of chaos theory. Of knowing the rules, but at the same time being utterly incapable of using those same rules to predict the future. They use huge computers to simulate things like the predator-prey problem. They set the initial conditions, and predict what the system will be like in a year or so. Then they go back and change those same initial conditions, but by making as tiny changes as they can. And the result, a year out, is WAY different than the first time. This is why they can't predict the weather with very much accuracy more than a few days out. Large trends, sure. But when and where it will rain, the exact temperature? Not a chance. Now imagine how many variables there are in a large human society. Kajillions. Many of them interdependent. Many of them based on human intentions. Human intentions which change every second. You're walking down the street, in a good mood. You smile at a sexy person, and they smile back. Now you're in a fantastic mood. But what if you smile at that same pretty person, and they flip you the bird? Or spit at you? Now your mood is ruined. One interaction, out of the hundreds of interactions you have per day. Talk about chaos theory! Trying to predict what other people will do is hopeless. Even worse if your happiness is dependent on other people. All you can do is improve how you INTERACT with others. You can't change what they will do. But you most certainly can change how you can RESPOND to them. Not just a little. But a lot. Learn How: https://www.udemy.com/course/verbal-assassin/

  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept28Post.mp4 Science and math have a lot of cool paradoxes. One is a three dimensional graph commonly referred to as "Gabriel's Horn." It's a long cone looking thing. What's the paradox? Mathematically, it has an infinite surface area, on the outside of the cone. But at the same time, the inside of the cone has finite volume. Meaning if it were a real physical shape, and not a mathematical idea, you could fill the inside with a finite amount of paint. Because the inside has finite volume. But the outside has infinite surface area. So if you tried to paint the outside, it would take an infinite amount of paint. You'll find plenty of these "paradoxes" in math. But math is not quite reality. Math is a "perfected" version of our ideal reality. For example, pi goes on for infinity. But in real life, the most they ever need is a couple dozen digits. And when you consider quantum physics, the idea that if you get small enough, you run out of "smoothness." So pi doesn't really exist in the real world. Another cool paradox is the idea of chaos theory. That any polynomial equation is impossible to predict. This is why they can only GUESS at the weather. The weather tomorrow is based on the weather today. The weather the day after tomorrow is based on the weather tomorrow. The further out you go, the more uncertainty there is. This idea absolutely OBLITERATES common self help myths. The idea that you can whisper one thing in a girls ear to drive her crazy. Why? Because however anybody reacts to anything you say is based largely on what happened to them a couple seconds ago. Imagine whispering a certain "magic pick up line" to a girl RIGHT AFTER she got fired from her job. Imagine whispering that same thing, to the same girl, but RIGHT AFTER she found $500 on the street. On one hand, this can feel horrible. On the other hand, it's pretty cool. It's horrible because we, as individuals can't predict ANYTHING when it comes to human behavior. But this also means that nobody else can. Which means you can BE whoever you want. Try anything, and if it works, cool. If it doesn't, try something different. Nobody knows who you are, until you interact with them. Every single time you have a conversation with somebody, this is a brand new opportunity to define yourself. However you want.

  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July10Post.mp4 The interaction between our self-aware minds and our other "selves" can be very confusing. Especially when you consider all our biases. Some biases are based on how we perceive the stuff around us. Since there is so much data hitting our brains, we MUST sort out the noise from the signal. Some of this stuff is programmed. Snakes, loud noises, etc. Some of it is learned. Our name, any pictures of our favorite food, especially if we are hungry. We can also adjust these filters consciously. If you were specifically looking for a friend in a red dress, you'd create a "red dress filter" which would make finding them much easier. Some of our biases are time dependent. Like hindsight bias, for example. We look back into our history, and re-write things. This is to protect our ego. Which is a necessary function to help us keep looking forward with as much positive expectation as possible. Sometimes we are happily caught in a virtuous cycle. Where everything we find verifies that everything is going well. This makes us feel pretty good, which makes us act pretty good. This ACTION creates more things around us, and those things either LITERALLY help us keep feeling good, or we PERCEIVE them as helping us. Either way, we'll take it. The opposite can also happen. We feel like crap. Everything we see verified that we ARE crap. This makes us feel even worse, which changes our BEHAVIOR and that behavior has a NEGATIVE impact on our environment. Since we're always INSIDE our brains, it's hard tell what is REAL and what is being filtered and RE-WRITTEN by our biases. Even from OUTSIDE things can be chaotic. LITERALLY chaotic. There was once a guy named Lorenz. He came up with a simple system that only had four variables. This four-variable system had the same kind of behavior. Certain cycles, that once started, seemed to self-perpetuate. And these were MATHEMATICALLY impossible to predict. Mathematicians called this CHAOS THEORY. But there is a HUGE difference between these two swirling systems. The mathematical system and YOU. You can CHANGE your filters at will. You can CHOOSE to sort for ladies in red dresses. Or people wearing yellow. Our brains and filters and biases have TONS of flexibility. But nobody ever tells us this. We kind of have to figure it out on our own. But once you learn how to GAME your own system, you'll gain an incredible amount of power. It's like drifting on the ocean on a huge ship. And then suddenly finding out you've got engines, navigation systems, GPS, and all kinds of cool tools. Learn the tools, and steer your ship. Get Started: http://mindpersuasion.com/self-esteem/
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July8Post.mp4 Lately I've been passively watching this video series about meteorology. I always wondered why they called the study of weather, "meteorology." Cause it sounds like it's the study of meteors. But it turns out the name for root word for both meteors and meteorology is based on an ancient Greek work. Which means, "things of the sky." So meteors are, literally, "things of the sky." And meteorology is also appropriately called, "study of things of the sky." Sometimes it's easy like this, to find ONE root cause for two different things. Our brains are pretty weak at INTUITIVELY understanding connections between two things. We have a tendency to assume since A comes BEFORE B, then A caused B. And since most of us learn the word for "meteor" long before we learn what "meteorology" stands, we wonder why they gave weather people such goofy names. Sometimes it's even MORE confusing. For example, if you actually study the weather. Weather patterns are INSANELY complicated. There are only a few variables, but they interact with one another in chaotic ways. Literally chaotic. From chaos theory, the mathematical theory that says whenever you have polynomial equation with more than two variables, it is MATHEMATICALLY impossible to predict it more than just a few steps out. Which is EXACTLY why they can only GUESS when it "MIGHT" rain. And tornado warnings only come a couple hours before they hit. Complex systems can only be described, but not accurately predicted. This is why it is very futile to imagine there is some kind of step-by-step recipe for personal success. Either social or financial. Since BOTH involve plenty of other people. And if weather, an INORGANIC system with only a few variables is unpredictable, imagine how UNPREDICTALBE any HUMAN group is! Humans are ORGANIC system with a KAJILLION variables. But there is ONE variable that will have a PROFOUND effect on your success. Since all success requires you get in the game and learn from experience. The more experience you get, the more success you'll get. You can't get experience unless you get in the game. So keeping yourself on the sidelines, waiting for a guaranteed method that, theoretically, CANNOT exist, is only wasting time. Luckily, there are plenty of exercises you can do OFF THE FIELD to significantly increase your chances of ENJOYING the game. After all, if you are IN the game, and you are ENJOYING the game, that would making getting that necessary experience enjoyable as well. What are those easy exercises?

  6. One very common question you hear during interviews is for a long term plan. Where do you see yourself in five years, that kind of thing. On one hand, this is a pretty standard question. And it's pretty obvious why. Most employers recognize that having long term plans is a generally positive sign. If they had two identical candidates, same resumes, work experience, etc., and the ONLY difference was one guy had a long term career plan, while the other guy said he was only living day to day, the choice would be clear. On the other hand, it's kind of a difficult to answer this question PERFECTLY honestly. Most people don't get a job at ANY company and hope to work there for five years. And the guys asking the questions know that. If you said you never wanted to work for anybody but them, ever, they would think you a bit goofy. So it's both a surface level question AND a deeper question. Surface level just to check to see if you HAVE long term plans. But it's a deeper question in that they are also concerned with HOW you answer it. But it leads to a deeper idea. The idea of having a long term plan, when it is IMPOSSIBLE to predict the future long term. The more you learn, the more you CAN learn. But the more you learn, the more DIRECTIONS you can learn in. It's one thing to start a four year degree with an idea of the kind of degree you want. But once you get the degree, there's NO TELLING what you'll be doing in five or ten years. If you started a small food stall, you would have to be fairly sensitive to the market. Which means you would have to sell whatever people bought. Which means the more effective of a marketer and entrepreneur you were, the less likely you'd predict the future. Plenty of huge companies got their start doing things COMPLETELY different than what they are doing now. Amazon, for example, started out selling books. Now they make most of their money selling cloud computing. This is NOT something you can predict. But at the same time, if you ONLY live day to day, you're going to get blind sided. Plenty of people refuse to see the big picture, and get clobbered when the market changes. But those with long view can see it coming. They don't know EXACTLY what is coming, but they know something is. Which means they are ready when it starts to materialize. The paradox is having a long view AND being open to the vague and uncertain future. If you can do this, you'll be way ahead of everybody. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/long-game/

  8. One of the reasons few people ever achieve their goals has to do with chaos theory. What the heck is chaos theory? It's actually very puzzling idea. They discovered when they started looking at computerized weather patterns. Turns out that changing the initial conditions just a teeny tiny bit will have a HUGE impact a couple weeks out. This is a simple system with just a few variables. This has nothing to do with measurement technology or even quantum physics. But an infinitesimally tiny change in the present will have UNPREDICTALBE results a couple weeks out. They run these weather patterns over and over. Even when the initial conditions are nearly IDENTICAL, the outcome a couple weeks out is completely different. This is where the term "butterfly effect" comes from. Meaning that if a butterfly flaps its wings, it can create DRASTIC changes in weather systems a couple weeks out. What does his have to do with setting goals? Whenever we set ANY kind of long term goal, we have NO IDEA what is going to happen in the future. Even with something as "simple" as weight loss. On the surface, it SEEMS straightforward enough. Eat less and exercise more. But when you make the decision, you are in one state of mind. And in order to CONTINUE to eat less and exercise more, you will need to be in a different state. And since you have NO IDEA what it will be like to operate from that state, you're essentially GUESSING about the future. Even when you go to a familiar restaurant, you DON'T KNOW what you are going to order when you get there. This is when you KNOW you are going to eat something. In a future that is less than an hour away. How the heck are you supposed to be able to predict what and how you'll eat two to three months out? This is why any goal more than a day or two out CANNOT be specific. The more specific it is, the less likely it will happen. Since you have NO IDEA what you'll be doing or thinking or feeling between now and then. So what's the answer? Give up? Nope. Just keep your goals from being specific. Turns out all you REALLY need to know is the DIRECTION you are going in. Imagine going on a two week road trip across the country. And trying to predict, down to the second, each day. Impossible! All you really need is the direction. You'll get there when you get there. And figure it out along the way. Goals are no different. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/goal-setting-sucks/
