  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov16Post.mp4 Plenty of animals can be trained. Even wild animals. This is something most would disagree with. But the word "trained" is often thought to be associated with the idea of being "trained to do what we want." For example, I've seen plenty of "trained" deer in the wild. No, they didn't do tricks or sit. But they were "trained." Only nobody "trained" them. They "learned." What did they learn? That humans are a source of FREE FOOD. My buddies and I had spent a day hiking. We got to ou
  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov13Post.mp4 One of the unknown drivers of the Industrial Revolution was land ownership. There are tons of variables about why, specifically, the Industrial Revolution happened where it did and when it did. Why England and not Japan, for example? Dr. Gregory Clark, an economist wrote a book looking all the details. (Farewell To Alms if you're interested). One critical driving force was the POTENTIAL for land ownership. If you're a fan of any middle ages based books, movies or TV shows, you know that only those of noble blood
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov12Post.mp4 Once upon a time there was an animal called the "short faced bear." It lived from a couple million years ago to about 10,000 years ago. Why did it suddenly vanish? These bears, when standing on their hind legs, were about three times as tall as a human. These tiny little talking moneys without claws or sharp teeth. These tiny little talking moneys ate all these large and ferocious bears. Who had lived for 2 MILLION YEARS. Then we showed up. And ATE them. They've studied these modern humans who liv
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov11Post.mp4 It's commonly hoped that changing your thinking can change your outcome. This is possible, but only in certain situations. One is when you get a new idea in your brain, and that new idea is connected to existing skills. For example, if you are a skilled piano player, and you get a new piece of music, you could play it pretty easily. The new music is the new idea. The skills are your piano playing skills. But if you don't have a lot of practice playing the piano, that new idea won't do much. Even if someb
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Nov10Post.mp4 I remember a long, long time ago, when my high school buddy and I were shifting from high school kids to college kids. I'd sent in my application early and had gotten accepted. It wasn't a big deal, since I went to one of those schools that accepts anybody with a pulse. The only benefit to sending in all the apps ahead of time was so you didn't have to worry about signing up for classes at the beginning of the semester. Kind of like having a reservation instead of showing up and having to wait. Anyhow, my buddy had t
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct02Post.mp4 Humans are explorers. We always have been. It's one of our unique human traits. It wasn't always like this. Way back when we were proto-humans, we were like all the other animals. Stuck in a geographical location. Bound by our instincts to eat and to not get eaten. But something happened. Whether a cause or an effect, something that changed this was a sexual division of labor. Dad birds and mom birds both go looking for the same kind of worms. Dad monkeys and mom monkeys get the same kind of
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar19Post.mp4 Most of us have plenty of goals. Things we'd like to have, or be able to do. But we either never start, or we've started and given up a few times. Why is goal setting so hard? There can only be two reasons. One is that the thing we are after is unachievable. Or the process we are doing to get the thing is incorrect. Both are hard to stomach. Believing we want something that is impossible is pretty depressing. Equally depressing is to admit we are always doing it wrong. Both have the same resu
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb09Post.mp4 A shortcut way to understand human nature is to look at our instincts. It's very easy to get lost in the metaphors of human thinking. But Cialdini found that most of the reasons we do things are simple and outside of our conscious awareness. And those reasons are few. Social proof, authority, commitment and consistency, and sex. We all like to think we are complex angels with a lot of esoteric reasons behind our thinking. Complex and rational reasons that we sort of understand ourselves, but are hard to articul
  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan30Post.mp4 Humans love having goals, but for some reason, they seem hard to achieve. For every milestone we achieve, we have about a kajillion we've given up on. One reason is that most of us are motivated MORE by moving away from pain than we are by moving toward pleasure. But since we don't like to admit this, we pretend we are motivated toward pleasure. But if we really WERE motivated toward pleasure, we would ALWAYS be moving forward. But our behaviors tell a different story. Many of our goals are reframed subconscious
  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept01Post.mp4 Humans are kind of like chainsaws. Chainsaws only operate at very high RPM's. At low RPM's, they kind of rumble and sputter. But rev 'em up, and their purr like a kitten. A kitten that can chew through trees like crazy. Humans are KIND OF like that. Meaning we were designed to operate BEST under certain conditions. What conditions? A lot of external pressures. External motivating forces. These operate how we feel SUBCONSCIOSLY. Not rationally. For example, imagine you had a fantast
  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

  13. Humans are hard wired to be dependent on external incentives. If you lived alone, had a lot of money, and wanted to lose a few pounds, it would be difficult. Especially if you had family and friends who liked you just the way you were. Having only internal incentives would make it VERY difficult to actually get up off the couch and lose weight. On the other hand, the same person who joined boot camp would have an easy time getting in shape. Because there would be plenty of EXTERNAL incentives. If you didn't get up a the crack of dawn, you'd be in serious trouble.
  14. We humans have been telling each other stories for a long time. Long before written language was invented. What was the purpose of these stories? Generally speaking, anything that is ubiquitous to human culture serves a lot of different purposes. But think of stories as motivational tools. But not like we think of today's "motivational speakers." Today's motivational speakers are more like entertainers. They rouse us up, we feel the energy, but then we go home. And pretty soon, it wears off. Stories that TRULY motivate us work on a much different le
  15. Here's a "trick" that will help you lose weight. Done consistently, it will help you make much healthier eating choices. It's based on an idea from economics. Whenever we choose between two options, we compare the good and bad for both of them. But we also compare our present state and our future state. One of the reasons we make unhealthy eating choices is the "good thing" is right here in front of us. While the "bad thing" is way out into the vague future. The idea from economics is that we can ONLY live in the present. Even when we imagine the future,
