  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept05Post.mp4 One idea from an old book is even older. The book is "Psycho Cybernetics." Written by a doctor who had a lot of "data" about self perception. And one of the recommendations (not the main recommendation) is to not ever compare yourself to others. This is much, much easier said than done. From a personal development standpoint, this is good advice. If you are slowly moving forward toward a goal, for example. You can look at how you are now. You can look at how you were a year ago. And this will mak
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/May31Post.mp4 Most things fall prey to the dismal science. The dismal science being economics. Why dismal? Because economics forces us to confront the harsh truths of life. That everything costs something. That there is no free lunch. For example, a common expression in business is that you can have it fast, you can have it cheap, and you can have it high quality. But you can only pick two. If it's fast AND high quality, it's going to be VERY EXPENSIVE. It it's cheap and high quality, it's to take a LONG TIM
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan06Post.mp4 Whenever politicians talk, they are necessarily vague. Part of this is an aspect of covert hypnosis. Covert hypnosis involves being artfully vague. For hypnosis, it's almost always a one on one conversation. By knowing your target, you can leave specific vague blanks in the conversation. Your target will fill in the blanks with their own ideas and experiences, and will have a memory of being much more involved in the conversation. Even if you did all the talking. Since while you were talking, you put in a b
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan02Post.mp4 One of the most important concepts in business is the idea of scale. First, you need to figure out something that is cheap enough to make, and will create a profit if you sell it. For example, if you spend $10 on any product, and you can sell that product for $20, that's pretty good. But not so good if you can only make and sell one product per day. No matter what kind of business you are in, unless you can scale it up, you won't get rich. Even if you could make ten or twenty of those $10 products at home, if you had
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec09Post.mp4 Understanding economics is critical. But it also pretty much sucks. That's why it's called the "dismal science." When we are children, we can get away with believing in magic. We don't have to worry about how much stuff costs. But once we have to get out in the world and get it done, we are forced to face the idea of costs. If you only have ten bucks in your pocket, there's only so much you can buy. If you only have an hour, there's only so much you can do. This is true socially as well. We wou
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept30Post.mp4 The other day I went to buy some horseradish. I looked at the ingredients, and plenty different kinds of horseradish had corn of some kind. Corn starch, high fructose corn syrup, and other types of corn. Why is there so much corn in our food? The answer is pretty simple. And, believe it or not, it goes all the way back to the Great Depression. The one that happened nearly a hundred years ago. Why in the heck do events from a hundred years ago make it likely to find corn based ingredients in horseradish?
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept22Post.mp4 Movies with twists are pretty cool. Especially ones that are well set up. So you can watch them again and again, and see what you missed. Even better are movies that people talk about. This is kind of a deep marketing technique. Perhaps on purpose, perhaps on accident. To make a movie with a twist so cool that people talk about it. And these people talking about it will be like viral marketing. For for new viewers and repeat viewers. A couple movies that fit this were Inception and Sixth Sense.
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept18Post.mp4 There's a reason few people understand economics. And there's a reason why economics is known as the dismal science. It has to do with why we also HATE doing things like balancing our bank accounts. Or when we go to the ATM, nobody likes to see their balance. Everybody has a very DEEP fear of running out of money. This is for a lot of reasons. One is instinctive. A healthy fear of NOT getting our needs met was necessary to get us out of bed every morning. It's also based on how beliefs are transmitted

  11. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/July11Post.mp4 If you were a skilled motivational speaker, you'd make a lot of money. Why is this? From a purely economic standpoint, whenever you sell something that is in high demand, you can make a lot of money. If you opened up the only grilled cheese shop in a town that LOVED grilled cheese, you'd make a lot of money. On the other hand, if you tried to sell steamed broccoli in a town that HATED vegetables, you'd go broke. Econ 101, right? So really good motivational speakers can make MILLIONS giving motivational speec

  14. I read a fascinating article by an economist. It was about how he watched his kids and their friends after they'd been trick or treating. There were about seven or eight of them. They'd just finished, and had chosen his house for the after party. Meaning they were going to dump out all their candy, count their loot, and make whatever trades they wanted. So they started trading the candy they HAD for the candy they wanted. But then something interesting happened. Without being told, these kids started using an intermediary "placeholder." They traded somet
  15. Many things come in two's. Night and day. Eating and digesting. Being awake and being asleep. Work and leisure. In economics, they classify all behaviors into two categories. Labor and leisure. Labor is a DISUTILITY. Which means it kind of sucks. Leisure is a UTILTIY. Which means it DOESN'T suck. We LIKE leisure. We don't like labor. We only DO labor so we can enjoy our leisure. Both can be improved. If you can improve your "labor skills" you can make more money. Have a better and more rewarding career. Live i

  17. Economics is something few people actively study. They don't teach it in school. And unless you are going to major in economics, chances are you won't take any official courses. Yet understanding economics is essential. Because economics allows for an understanding of human nature. Of human decision making. Many suppose the reason they specifically DON'T teach economics in school is so it's much easier to con us. The MAIN THING economics FORCES us to understand is what things costs. And that is the ONE QUESTION those in charge don't want us to ask.
  18. 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
  19. If you were going to bake a cake, it would be pretty easy. At least if the recipe was simple. But even simple recipes can get complicated. The best chefs spend years learning their craft. The more complicated something is, the more time it takes to learn. The more room for error there is. And the more valuable high level skills are. Which is exactly why world class chefs make tons of money. They can create things that few other people can. Anything that is world class involves a lot of different ideas. You start by doing what you're told.
  20. Economics is often referred to as the dismal science. It's easy to see why. It forces us to see exactly how much things cost. Not just in monetary terms, but in all terms. One thing you have to learn and apply in chemistry is the idea of conversation of matter and energy. One can turn one into the other (matter into energy or energy into matter) but you can't just poof it into our out of existence. So when you write down steps of a chemical reaction, you need to do a kind of bookkeeping. You have to make sure that the energy and matter one ONE side of the equ
  21. There's an idea in economics called "diminishing returns." Unfortunately, most people never study economics. For one, it's not taught in school. And since it's used as a "tool" to "control" society, they make it seem much harder than it really is. It's actually not even a science. It's more of a description of natural human behavior. For example, suppose you were on a diet. And it was the kind of diet that allowed one cheating day per week. And on your upcoming cheating day, you were going to have a huge bowl of chili cheese fries. The first fry wou
  22. One of the reasons economics is called the "dismal science" is it FORCES us to think in terms of costs. Nobody likes the idea of paying for something. We are very much open to the idea of getting something for nothing. In fact, this is the HEART of PT Barnum's famous saying, "there is a sucker born every minute." What's NOT said is the next part. The REASON those suckers are suckers. They are suckers because they are WILLING to believe something that is too good to be true. Namely, circumventing the most basic laws of nature. That EVERYTHING costs someth

  24. One of the reasons economics is called the “dismal science” is because of the idea of opportunity costs. If you’ve got ten bucks in your pocket, you can buy whatever you can get for ten bucks. Whatever you decide to buy, when you hand over that ten bucks, that’s the direct cost. The opportunity costs are all the things you CAN’T buy once you make your decision. Say you’re in fast food land. And you decide to buy a gigantic carne asada burrito combo with your ten bucks. The opportunity costs are all the things you CAN’T buy once you decide on the burrito.
