  1. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb14Post.mp4 Science is pretty cool, but also pretty wacky. Not really, since our brains can't really handle much. At least not intuitively. We can only make sense of very simple interactions. We see A happen, and we can sort of predict that B might happen. Even Bastiat, and old school economist from a couple centuries ago noted this. He said it's not what you see that's important, it's what you don't see. He wasn't talking about ghosts or spirits. He was talking about the more complex outcomes of the things we see. We'll see A happen, and figure that would probably cause B. But what we DON'T see is that B might cause C, and C might lead to D and E, but only under certain conditions. In the realm of economics, this is what explains the "law of unintended consequences." This is because in the world of economics, pretty much EVERYTHING is connected. You change something way over here, and the effects will work it's way through the system. Eventually, sometimes a few years later, it will create outcomes that nobody could have predicted. If you are LOCKED into simple, "A causes B" thinking, you will be very limited. For example, somebody gives you some advice. You imagine doing that advice, and you can't imagine how that advice will lead DIRECTLY to a positive outcome. So you think the advice is wrong, or misguided. This is a trick. To not only protect your ego, but to keep you safely on the sidelines. You get to PRETEND that you are being smart, but not taking risks. But in reality, if anything was that easy, everybody would be doing it. Everybody could hear advice to do A, for example. And everybody would imagine how A would lead directly to B, that positive outcome. And EVERYBODY would do A to get B. And then EVERYBODY would have B. This the trouble with ONLY taking action when you have a sure thing. Since it's a sure thing, EVERYBODY can do it. So if you want to get MORE than you have right NOW, you've got to DO THINGS that others are too scared to try. Nobody ever got rich without taking risks. Nobody get got the hot guy or girl without taking risks. Nobody ever got mad skills without experiencing the opportunity costs. Luckily, you don't need to take HUGE risks. You don't need to expose yourself to HUGE opportunity costs. Just a little bit at a time. While everybody is safely staring at social media, or TV, or whatever their comfort zone allows, you can be building skills. Skills that will get you whatever you want.

  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Feb10Post.mp4 Humans are fantastic at self deception. We want something, but we are too terrified to try and get it. So we pretend we don't want it. Even better, is we do this by taking the reason we don't want it, and use that very same reason to make ourselves feel BETTER than everybody else. Humans are not only primates, but hierarchical primates. Self-organizing, hierarchical primates. But since the primate, self-organizing hierarchy part of us was around LONG before conscious thought, it operates mostly subconsciously. And part of being a hierarchical primate is ALWAYS needing to come up with a story of WHY we are better than everybody else. For example, guy sees a cute girl at a bar. He would LOVE to get down with her. But he imagines approaching, and getting shot down. Or worse, he imagines approaching, being successful in the short term, but getting his emotions obliterated in the long term. This happens in two or three nanoseconds. What comes next is the ego protection reframe. He decides to NOT approach. But he does in a way that makes him feel BETTER for not approaching. As if he COULD approach if he wanted, but he's choosing not to. Why? Because SHE is not his type. She is INFERIOR in some way. I mean, just look at the way she's dressed! Of course, this is all a lie. How do we KNOW it's a lie? Because if she walked over and seduced him, he would NOT resist. Not one bit. If she decided to seduce him, get him to fall in love with her, have a couple of his children, he would not resist. Life is funny that way. The way we are SUPPOSED to do things is the HARDEST way. Men are supposed to approach women. Men are supposed to get the ball rolling. But few men do. This is one of the main reasons why so many women are ANGRY today. If you're a man, and you want to stand out, you've got to get off the sidelines. There's no other way. If you're a woman, it's much, much easier than you realize. But ONLY if you do the OPPOSITE of what you're supposed to do. Most ladies believe it's the man's job to approach, and to get the ball rolling. Sure, that's the common idea. But that's just a suggestion. Kind of like a red light in the middle of nowhere. If you are a lady, and you would like to clean up, there's NEVER been a better time. Clean up how? Any way you want.

  5. Most things can easily be seen in two parts. Night and day. Yin and Yang. Good and bad. Parasympathetic and sympathetic. Working and resting. Creating and re-creating. Sleeping and waking. Darkness and light. This is one of those chicken and egg questions. Does our body have all kind of dual functions because that is the nature of the universe? Or do we only perceive it so BECAUSE our body has plenty of dual functions? These kinds of questions are fun to talk about. But the essentially don't help us much. A lot of things can be seen in many different ways. I had a girlfriend in high school and we'd always get into arguments. I would like to talk about these things. While she would wish somebody would show up and tell us the answer. Some people like to search. Others would rather know. Sometimes, though, you don't to have to do one or the other. Take working and relaxing, for example. Way back in the day, there was a very clear distinction between the two. Working was the acquisition of needed calories to stay alive. Hunting or farming. And then later working in a factory. There was work, which was hard. Then there was relaxation, which was easy. But today, most everything is in a transition. Probably a very significant one. So the idea of ONLY working or ONLY relaxing isn't such a good idea any more. It makes sense to find activities that satisfy BOTH. There is an idea that we SHOULD love our job. Consider that to be an IDEAL, not an achievable goal. Ultimately, we do jobs because we get money. But the more you ENJOY doing the things you get money, the easier it will seem. And the more you'll enjoy thinking about it. If you HATE your job, it's hard to creatively think about how to make it more productive and lucrative. But if you can start to slide into a job you enjoy more, dreaming up better ways of being productive won't be so bad. You can start by looking at any overlaps between hobbies and skill learning. If you can find a hobby that is enjoyable on its, AND may point you in the direction of money-making skills, you could be onto something. Ideally you'd like to have a collection of skills that satisfy three criteria. You enjoy doing them, you're good at it, AND you can make some decent money. You hit all three and you've got it made.

  7. 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. Nachos, burgers, a fat blunt, anything. Opportunity costs are one of the main reason we don’t go after goals. Everybody wants more money, more love, more sex, more free time, quieter neighbors, more respect, etc. But we also enjoy all the stuff we enjoy. And once we start doing things to GET the things we want, we MUST stop doing some of the things we like doing. Even WORSE is the idea that we are wasting our time. Meaning we might spend year trying something that will hopefully get us more money, but what if it doesn’t work? That would be horrible! Not only can we NOT DO the things we would have done (opportunity costs) but the stuff we ARE doing aren’t getting us SQUAT! Instead, we prefer to “imagine” that one day through some kind of “magic” the stuff we want will just “happen” somehow. Without any effort on our part. In the present moment, this is an easy and comfortable thought. But since it’s a fantasy, thinking this way comes with its own opportunity costs. While you are sitting around waiting for the magic wish fairy to show up, you could be doing REAL things that will give you REAL improvement. Developing the base skills that NEED to exist beneath every other skill. The mental practice and rehearsal exercises that will make all other skills easy. The mental foundations of ALL success. What are these, exactly? You can learn all about them. Here: http://mindpersuasion.com/deep-skills/
