  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar24Post.mp4 According to anthropologists, language and conscious thought is why humans eventually took over the planet. Many other animals can learn, but humans can do so collectively. This means we can discover and idea, and share it with others. Once everybody has this idea, it becomes part of the "collective consciousness." This allowed humans to learn as a group. Even from generation to generation. Even while skipping a bunch of generations. This is one of the things that ended the dark ages, and opened up the e
  3. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Mar10Post.mp4 One of the top compelling forces of persuasion is scarcity. Even when it's blatantly fake, it still works. The less of something there is, the more we want it. The less of something there is, the more we value it. This was famously demonstrated in the cookie jar experiment. A bunch of people were asked to take a cookie from a jar, eat it, and then fill out a taste questionnaire. When the cookie jar was nearly full, it had an average level of quality. When the cookie jar was nearly empty, it had a much HIGHE
  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb23Post.mp4 One of the interesting paradoxes is whatever you prepare for doesn't happen. But if you don't prepare, it will. Sometimes, this is kind of silly, like if you think it's going to rain. If you DON'T bring an umbrella, it will rain. If you DO bring an umbrella, it won't. This is a common idea in many martial arts movies. The whole reason to train and learn how to fight, is so you don't need to fight. If you walk into a bar while radiating SCARED energy, you'll become a target for those types who like to pick o
  5. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb22Post.mp4 There's an economist named Basiat, who is known pretty well in certain economic circles. One is most famous sayings is, "It's not what you see, it's what you don't see." This describes how "reality" really works. Our monkey brains evolved in a very different environment than the one we live in. We could get by, back then, but thinking in very simple, very linear terms. Do X, and you'll get Y. If you get Y, you'll get Z. For most dudes for most of history, there were only three things to think about.
  6. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb03Post.mp4 Motivation is a dangerous thing. It's also a very misunderstood concept. Motivation is the biggest associated ingredient to any kind of success. If you want more money, you need to learn more skills. In order to learn more skills, you need motivation. If you want better health, you need to exercise. In order to exercise, you need motivation. If you want a better relationship, you need to get out there and meet people. To get out there and meet people, you need motivation. This is one reason why
  7. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept10Post.mp4 You can buy a lot of cool stuff online. When I was a kid, if you wanted to buy something NOT from a store, you had to mail order it. Usually stuff that was in the back of comic books. You'd send them a check, and wait for WEEKS for it to come. Yes, WEEKS! Today, if it doesn't come next day, we get angry. On the one hand, it's cool to have stuff so quickly and readily available. On the other hand, it can ruin our ability to delay gratification. Being able to delay gratification is one of the most impor
  8. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept09Post.mp4 What does it mean to put the cart before the horse? Normally horses pull carts. Horses have a lot of strength. Which is why horsepower is a unit of power. Power is energy per time. A cart, on the other hand, can only hold stuff. It can't do anything. So putting the cart before the horse means to get things backwards. Or to misunderstand which part is doing the work. And which part is being effected by the work. Another similar metaphor from self help is "the wake doesn't drive the boat."
  9. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept07Post.mp4 One interesting aspect of our language is the metaphors we use. The problem with MOST of these metaphors, is that we really have NO idea why they were chosen. For example, a common expressions is "raining cats and dogs." Everybody knows this means it's raining pretty hard. But nobody really knows why. Sure, there's a few theories, but it's impossible to know. Because who knows how long people used them BEFORE writing them down. Way back in the day, there wasn't much stuff being written. Books and news
  10. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept04Post.mp4 A long time ago, our taste buds were carefully calibrated to our environment. The stuff we liked to eat happened to be very healthy. Maybe once upon a time there were some goofy cave people who liked eating tree bark. Or maybe tree bark mixed with dirt. But since tree bark and dirt isn't part of a healthy caveman diet, those guys all died. So today, nobody has the "tree bark is delicious" genes. It's an interesting discovery that people who existed before the agricultural revolution had slightly different bodie

  14. The best relationships happen spontaneously. For women, the best romantic idea is to get swept off your feet. Unexpectedly. For men, it’s commonly taught that the best way to talk to a woman is under the idea of “outcome independence.” If you are specifically trying to get a specific outcome, you’ll be much more nervous and upset if it doesn’t happen. Paradoxically, the less you are concerned with an outcome, the more likely it will happen. However, this only works in the contexts of male-female relationships. If you tried this strategy when baking a cake, it
  15. Deep within us are ancient instincts. Everything we want satisfies one of these instincts. One way to describe them would be in terms of Maslow’s famous hierarchy. At the bottom is basic stuff like food and sex and staying out of the rain. On top are esoteric and undefinable things like “self actualization.” But no matter how you get self actualized, or how long you stay there, you still gotta eat. And if you stay outside in the elements too long, you will die. Even if you DO become self-actualized, it happens inside your biological body. And your biolog
  16. One of the secrets of human nature is that we are all human. And despite how different we feel on the inside, we are all very similar. It’s just that our deep dreams, fears, and desires are something that we RARELY share. So we think ours are different. But they really aren’t. If we all had fundamentally different internal wants and needs and fears, it would be impossible for any inventor to be successful. If we all had DIFFERENT internal desires, no ONE invention or idea (or book or song or movie) would be popular to many people. This means that as a human,
  17. Everything must obey the laws of supply and demand. If there is plenty of something, and not a lot of people want it, it’s not going to be worth much. On the other hand, if something is scarce, and lots of people want it, it’s going to be worth plenty. Many people get the idea of economics and relationships messed up. When you go out for lunch, there are plenty of restaurants available. But they each have food. If you need a car, there are plenty of models available. But they all essentially do the same thing. The mistake comes when we think of things li
  18. Everything runs in cycles. One of the misconceptions of the yin-yang idea is that it's static. The actual symbol, the circle with a half swirl of black and a half swirl of white is based on the sun. It represents the sunrise and sunsets throughout the year. As such, the entire yin-yang idea is based on continuous movement. Yin is ALWAYS turning into Yang, and Yang is ALWAYS turning into Yin. If anybody (especially somebody who wants your $$) tells you your yin-yang is out of balance, they don't know what they are talking about. A great way to think about this
  19. I was watching a documentary the other day about rehab. The theme was pretty common. They took a group of addicts, and put them to work on a farm. One of the ideas behind it is that one needs to be able to deal with physical and emotional discomfort, trial and error type setbacks. But without the crutch of any mind altering chemicals to ease any pain. We are hard wired to move toward pleasure and away from pain. Normally, this is a good thing. Even the pain part. Without pain, there is no motivation to improve. The most successful people say to get
  20. Some of the best advice is also the oldest. Depsite how many improvements in thinking and technology, humans are still humans. Jesse Livermore, for example, was a famous stock trader way back before and during the Great Depression. He wrote a famous book which was a fictionalized autobiography. In it he describes how stocks go up and down based on human emotions. Human emotions which are as old as the hills. So while technology improves, science improves, ideas about physical health continue to improve, human emotions will ALWAYS be the same. It is for this r
  21. I read a fantastic book a long time ago. Very easy to understand, very accessible. It even had plenty of funny pictures It was written by a husband and wife team. They write a lot of books about self-help type stuff, but from a scientific perspective. This particular book, "Why Men Don't Listen and Why Women Can't Read Maps," is all about the REAL differences between men and women. The last 1/4 of the book is references to all the scientific studies. What was most impressive was that overall, everything about us humans can be understood by understanding where
  22. I recently read an interesting article about Elon Musk. The super rich, super genius that is going to take us to mars. He was talking about a recent break up he had. What was interesting was the interview had to pause while he went and composed himself. Apparently at the time of the interview, the breakup was fairly recent. He admitted that his biggest fear is being alone. Not with anybody to share his life with. It reminded me of "Rosebud." Rosebud is the name of the sled in the famous Orson Welles movie, "Citizen Kane." A fictionalized account of
  23. I went over to my sister's once. Dinner or something. One of the houses on the block had been torn down. It was a nice neighborhood, with nice houses, so it seemed kind of strange. Turned out the guy's foundation had cracked, so he had to make a new one. Which meant tearing down the house, ripping out the foundation, and pouring another one. Quite an expensive pain. This is why the foundation of anything is so important. With a house, it's pretty obvious. Because houses are physical things with physical plans. There is a right way and a wrong w
  24. Context is crucial. Something happening in one context is good. Not so good in another. A guy gets rejected by a girl, it could be the worst thing that ever happened to him. On the other hand, if he's with his friends and they are playfully hitting on every girl in site, a particularly clever rejection can make their evening. Especially if it gets everybody laughing. This is one context that can make almost everything better. A few years ago, they released a bunch of pictures from cold war Russia. Never before seen scenes from inside the Iron Curtain.
