  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct20Post.mp4 One of the very first "transactions" that went down on planet Earth happened by accident. Biologists believe the very first multi-cellular life form happened when one single celled dude tried to eat another single celled dude. But it was kind of like the world famous "peanut butter in my chocolate" discovery. That old commercial where one lady was walking down the street eating some chocolate. Another dude was walking down the street eating peanut butter, from a jar. They bumped into each other and BOOM! A new c
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept25Post.mp4 Magic tricks are cool. I've been fortunate enough to know two guys who were professional, up close, sleight of hand magicians. Up close meaning they would perform at places like this club in Hollywood called the "Magic Castle." And they wouldn't be up on stage. The rooms were set up like rooms at big, Hollywood Hills style house parties. And the guy would be sitting behind a table, and they would have very small, kind of "bleachers" set up. So you could have a straight line of sight from where you were to the d
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Apr05Post.mp4 What does it mean to be charismatic? There are a plenty of ways. Charisma is a general label. One that means the person labeled as charismatic is VERY enjoyable to be around. There are two basic ways to do this. One is to focus COMPLETELY on other person. Not just lazy, fake focus. But real, genuine interest in who they are. Not just their looks, but everything about them. Most of us can ONLY do this with people we are physically or otherwise attracted. But charismatic people can do this with
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar31Post.mp4 A few years ago, a friend of mine asked me to go with her on this weekend business thing. She said it was something she and her sister were interested. She was pretty vague, and didn't make it seem very important. So, since it was Saturday, I wore my Saturday clothes. A pair of shorts, a t-shirt and some sneakers. Everybody else there was wearing a suit. I felt a little out of place. Until I realized it was some kind of MLM scam. The energy at those kinds of places is pretty unique. Everybody h
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar21Post.mp4 Many guys have problems with girls. Guys would LOVE to know what to say to get certain girls to like them. To get girls to feel certain ways about them. To do certain things. Many girls have problems with guys. Girls would LOVE to know what to say to get certain guys to like them. To get guys to feel certain ways about them. Salespeople have problems with customers. They would LOVE to know what to say to get customers to buy. To buy, buy again, and refer more people to them. This is a very c
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar20Post.mp4 Most things are best understood as a numbers game. You talk to 10 girls you might get a couple numbers. You send out a few dozen resumes, and you might get a couple calls. You stand in the batting cages and you might really connect with one out of three or four pitches. This CAN be discouraging. Especially if you focus on every single swing, or approach, or phone call. But the longer you can stretch out your perception, the easier it seems. Especially if you understand from the beginning that it's just a nu
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb01Post.mp4 In writing, they have a common rule of showing instead of telling. This leverages and old idea from Dale Carnegie. That you can get anybody to do anything, so long as it was their idea. If fiction, this works by allowing the readers or viewers to discover, on their own, what's going on. This makes it much more of their idea. This makes them much more invested in the story, or the character arc. This works very well in interpersonal relationships, sales, romance and seduction. Consider the statement: "I
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July19Post.mp4 The most common persuasion strategy is the features and benefits strategy. When in actual sales, the salesperson is taught to memorize a huge list of features and benefits. Then they rattle them off to any customer that walks in the door. The idea is that if they hit enough of the customer's hot buttons, the customer will have enough buying desire. On TV shows and movies, effective salespeople do this with plenty of charisma. The customer just needs to stand there and be mesmerized by the beautiful metaphors the sal
  9. Our language is absolutely filled with metaphors. When people think of metaphors, we usually think of poetry, or literature, or fairy tale type storytelling. But it's hard to speak more than a few words before tossing out a few metaphors. Just take a look that last sentence. "Words" is a metaphor. It is a collection of sounds or squiggly lines that mean absolutely NOTHING to the untrained eye. And they represent and "idea" in mind, another metaphor. If we wanted to be super specific, each "idea" would have to be described according to the EXACT neural configu
  10. 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.
  11. Groucho Marx famously said that sincerity is the most important thing in the world. And if you can fake it, you've got it made. A-list actors are very good at faking sincerity. This is why they get paid so much. Just looking at their facial expressions makes it seem real. The other night I watched a weird, low budget, alien, time travel movie. The acting was very good. In one scene, an actress had to look out her kitchen window, and make it seem like she was really seeing a glimpse of hell. Then she went back to normal. She had to go from a normal e
  12. Archimedes is a famous old school scientist. One of the things he's famous for is running down the street naked. Not the naked part, but what caused his excitement. The king was worried that somebody was scamming him. He'd paid to have a gold crown made. But he wasn't sure if it was gold or copper or a mix. And since way back then (ancient Greece) they really had no way of knowing. So he gave Archimedes the task of figuring out how. And as a scientist, he put his mind to work while he did normal things. And when he got into his bathtub, he saw the w
  13. If you saw a gorgeous girl or guy from across the room, you'd remember them. The more gorgeous they were, the more you'd remember them. But you would REALLY remember them if they looked at you and smiled briefly. In fact, just a little bit of direct, non-verbal communication, no matter how brief, would be MUCH more powerful than just their looks. You can imagine a gorgeous person who doesn't notice you. And a semi-attractive person who looks RIGHT AT YOU and smiles before looking away. You would definitely remember that. The longer and more involved that inte
  14. Some things are easy, and other things are not. Some things start out as difficult, and become easy. These are things that we practice. This is pretty self evident, and it almost seems so obvious that it's not even worth mentioning. But sometimes we overlook such simple ideas. Much to our demise. If you started to play any sport, and you sucked, that would be normal. Because most people suck when they start most things. But the more you practice, the better you get. We all get this intuitively. Once a couple of friends and myself were watching
  15. Humans seem to have an instinct to keep improving. This is pretty obvious when you compare technology now to only a few decades ago. It's also pretty obvious when you compare old people to young people. Simply by being around, you get more experience. Even passive experience will teach you things. Most people go through some kind of educational system. Our brains are even created so we are born with less than developed brains. We have an instinct to soak up as much information as we can. Next time you have a chance, watch people in line at the supermarke
  16. A common and very old expression is "to know me is to love me." This is kind of opposite of the "love at first sight," idea. Love at first sight means you SEE somebody, and you INSTANTLY fall in love. Or course, this is kind of impossible. It's a nice idea, but it's usually not one that is "true" until any couple has been together for a while. It usually goes down like this. A couple meet, and they hit it off. They like the way they look. They like the way they make each other feel. They click deeply and quickly. They go on a few dates, and may
  17. Value can either be subjective or objective. When we humans go shopping for food, the food must be something we can digest and get energy from. To that extent, the food has objective value. Beyond that, we can choose food that we enjoy eating. Or we enjoy our state of health that the food supports. To that extent, most of the food we eat has both objective and subjective value. If you were ONLY concerned with the objective value of any food, you might be consuming something like tasteless protein shakes that had a scientifically determined combination of nutrients
  18. There are two kinds of fear. Real and imaginary. Once upon a time, we only had real fears. Tigers, other people, dangerous terrain, etc. And through the long slow grinding path of evolution, we humans developed a pretty good strategy for dealing with fear. Better safe than sorry. Meaning if something was even potentially dangerous, it made sense to run first and ask questions later. This was balanced by our never ending need for food. So on one side, we were being driven forward by our instinctive need for food. On the other side, we were being driv
  19. There are a lot of paradoxes in human life. One was explained fairly well by Bryan Cranston, the guy who played Walter White on "Breaking Bad." He said most everybody is very reluctant to "let it all hang out" emotionally. But as an actor, you HAVE to do that. He also said that the more you do that (let it all hang out) the more of the paradox you see. Our deep fears is that the more we let it all hang out, the more likely we'll get rejected. But the opposite happens. The more we show our true selves, the more people will absolutely CRAVE our presence. B
  20. There's no question than being able to speak in public is an asset. If there is one thing you could add to your set of skills, standing up and speaking before a crowd is one of them. If you are in a room of 50 other job applicants, and you can get up and give a speech, you'll significantly increase your chances. Even if you are beaten by everything else, (GPA, degree, experience, etc.) being able to get up and talk will put ahead. But there's speaking, and then there's persuading. It's really not so difficult to give an informative speech. Essentially, it's all ab
  21. Once upon a time a guy killed his wife. This was a famous story all over the news about 15 years or so ago. One of the reasons was that he planned it all out. He had her killed, discovered the body, and went on TV pleading for the criminal to be caught. At first, everybody believed it. But then the guy disappeared. And the more they dug, the more they suspected him. He had bought a large insurance policy, and by the time they'd found him, he'd totally changed his appearance. But the guy was no dummy. He only ran away because he got spooked by all th

  23. A while ago I took an improv class. I thought it was going to be about how to tell jokes. But it was about something much deeper. See, when actors are up on stage (or in front of the camera), they've got to do two things which seem to be opposite. On the one hand, they have to repeat lines written by professional writers. But at the same time, they have to seem VERY "in the moment." This is not as easy as it seems. Just watch some of the bottom-of-the-barrel movies on any streaming service to see what I mean. When somebody can deliver the right lines but
  24. Whenever you have two competing ideas, or people, the one with the longest range plan is usually going to win. For example, it's commonly understood that corporations have more or less taken over most governments. How did they do this? Governments can only focus so far ahead. Since government officials are elected, they can only do so much. Any idea they come up with has to work in a very short time period. Otherwise somebody else might get credit. And the flip side is that if they do something that looks good in the short term, but disastrous in the long ter
