  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb20Post.mp4 Things that feel good in the short term rarely feel good in the long term. Unless, of course, those short term positive feelings are riding on top of a long term positive trend. For example, suppose you're training to run a 10K. You've got a target time in mind, and your nearly there. You've had a good run that day, and you're sitting down to eat some dinner. You cook a healthy meal. While you are eating it, the taste (which is secondary to the health aspects) reminds you of the path you are on. You look ba
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Dec28Post.mp4 Many things have two time components. Short term and long term. These are almost always inversely proportional to one another. For example, sleeping in and then eating carne asada nachos along with a bottle of Jack Daniels feels very good in the short term. But it will kill you in the long term. On the other hand, getting up early, doing some calisthenics, and carefully monitoring your caloric intake most definitely SUCKS in the short term. But it will generate some very LONG term gains. Another common huma

  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct19Post.mp4 Many things can be seen from two completely different perspectives. Once I was with a bunch of friends. We'd just sat down in a restaurant, and were looking over at the menu. My friend noticed that his water glass was different than all the rest. Same size, but a slightly different shape. He immediately took this to mean that something was wrong with him. Of course, he was only being about 5% serious. But this is a common response whenever we are singled out for any reason. Another friend was quick wit

  7. Reframing is a very powerful skill. And it can be used in many, many ways. The most common is in the moment. Somebody throws a playful insult your way, you reframe it and toss it back. Of course, reframes don't always help us. We sometimes turn a weakness into a strength. So we don't to suffer any ego pain. For example, a guy spots a pretty girl across the room. He wants to approach her, but loses his nerve. Instead of admitting the truth, that he wants to approach her but he's too nervous, he reframes it into a positive. To protect his ego.
  8. All humans come pre-programmed with massive potential. But it is ONLY potential. Some people have a head start, some don't. For example, coal, as it is buried in the ground, can be interpreted as potential energy. If you dig up the coal, and burn it to boil water, the steam can turn things around do work. Like power locomotives or create electricity. But some coal is easy to get, some coal is hard to get. Human potential is the same. Some are born with potential that is very easy to access. Their natural skills are very close to skills that are in-d
  9. When I was a kid, there was a famous TV commercial. It was for an attorney that specialized in personal injury. Their most famous client won a huge lawsuit. And the commercial ended with the happy client saying: "Lawyer X got me 2.2 million dollars!" (Of course he said the guy's name, not lawyer x...) But then the laws changed. "They" made it illegal to say how much you MIGHT get on TV. So the NEW commercial was the same guy. Only this time, he said: "Lawyer X got me, well, you know!" Since he was already famous, people remembered the old
  10. One of the biggest stumbling blocks is our natural inability to live with uncertainty. This "fear" comes across in many ways. We have a ton of biases, things that filter out things our subconscious doesn't want us to see. Cognitive dissonance is a general term for many of these. There is something in our environment, or a certain interpretation of something in our environment, that represents DANGER to our ego. So our cognitive dissonance, or a collection of biases, KEEPS US from seeing that. Any time we can avoid admitting that we SUCK, or we MIGHT SUCK, this pop
  11. If you wanted to make a sandwich, it would be easy. So long as you had some bread, and some stuff to put between the bread, you'd be OK. On the other hand, if you had a whole bunch of stuff, and a whole bunch of different bread, it MIGHT be difficult. If you were hungry but you didn't know what you wanted. You might stare at all your bread. Stare at all the stuff you could put between them. On the other hand if you had an idea of what you wanted, it would be quick. On the other hand, if you were hungry, knew what you wanted, but ALL you had was an empty jar o
  12. When I was a kid I used to play golf. My friends and I would play at this nine hole course next to our junior high school. I had some hand-me-down clubs, and it was only $5 to play. One hole gave me problems. We had to hit over the water. Seeing the water always messed me up. Then another kid gave me some fantastic advice. Advice that I keep playing in my mind whenever I need it. And that was to pretend the water was green grass. To negatively hallucinate the obstacle. So I could see and focus on the objective beyond it. Of course, he didn
  13. If you learn something that's helpful in one context, it's sometimes not so helpful in another context. Once my friend talked me into going snowboarding. I had done a lot of skateboarding when I was younger. I mistakenly assumed they would be similar. It took me a long time to get from the top to the bottom. Even though it LOOKED the same, it was completely different. Very rarely will you get a professional athlete that is skilled in more than one sport. Plenty of us have baggage from childhood. We "learn" certain things that are helpful in certain conte
  14. The main objective of any business is a positive ROI. Doesn't matter if you are selling peanut butter sandwiches, or making jet engines. ROI means "return on investment." And since people started selling things to each other, the goal has always been the same. Spend X dollars on the back end, and make MORE than X dollars on the front end. If you spend $10 on bread and peanut butter, and make back $20 by selling sandwiches, you've got an ROI of 100%. On the other hand, if you spend ten bucks on bread and peanut butter, eat one sandwich for every one you sell, and o
  15. When I was a kid I loved geometry. It was one of the only classes where I actually enjoyed doing the homework. Particularly the proofs. Now, I was always a science geek. I'd always been getting in trouble by doing experiments with things. But geometry was always fascinating. Taking a couple of abstract ideas, and then using them to PROVE something else that was equally abstract. There are a few things in geometry that are simply ASSUMED to be true. Like two parallel lines won't ever touch. Or any two points can make a line. The two-points-make-
  16. One of the most coveted interpersonal "feelings" is one of outcome independence. Meaning you are totally relaxed in the moment. The less you seem concerned about the outcome, the more likely you'll get a positive outcome. For example, let's consider two sales people. One is VERY HIGHLY dependent on the outcome. This guy would be extremely worried about NOT making the sale. Which would make him very aggressive trying to make the sale. He would come across as pushy and wouldn't take no for an answer. He might even get angry if customers didn't buy. On
  17. When comparing a couple of politicians, usually "our guy" vs. "their guy," using a chess vs. checkers metaphor is common. Our guy is playing chess while the other guy is playing checkers. This means our guy is thinking ahead a few moves. While their guy is clumsily stumbling along one step at a time. In movies, a common statement when the good guy finally beats the bad guy is to say, "checkmate." Checkmate is known even to those who've never played chess. It's the last move after several, when the good guy finally maneuvers that bad guy into an inescapable positio
  18. From inside our own brain, life can seem confusing. But looking at us humans objectively can give us a better perspective. One way to describe us is "desire satisfying organisms." We have these things in our brains called desires. An unfulfilled want. This propels our mind-body system to interact with the world until we get our desires satisfied. Sometimes this is easy and automatic. Like grabbing something out of the fridge. We can do it mostly on auto-pilot. Some stuff is complicated. Like rebuilding an engine. Takes a lot of time and co

  23. The long game is an idea is extremely valuable. All failures can be framed in terms of long game failure. Anybody can play the short game. Only looking ahead a move or two. Few people can play the long game. Especially if it involves any short term discomfort. There’s a parable about an ancient Chinese kung fu master. He was strolling down the street, and some young punks accosted him. They many, and they challenged him to a fight. He didn’t feel like fighting. They said the only way to avoid fighting was to crawl on the ground through their le
  24. The best way to get anybody to do anything is to put it in terms of what they want. Since everybody wants what they want, this makes sense. But most of the time, we ignore this. It's common to tell people to do what WE want because of what we want. Which is the same idea only from the inside out. But if you've ever experienced a very friendly shopping experience, it's the opposite. They ask what you want, why you want it, and what you want to do with it. Then they make recommendations based only on what you just told them. This makes perfect sense.
