"I got more views in one hour than I got in a month." -Mariano
I have read those same magazines. The ones with the pictures that make you think that life must be a fantasy for a small population of the world. Overall, we're all still learning. No mistakes are being made as long as lessons are being learned. The ones who seem to have it all are still feeling out the rest of the world. They are trying to figure out where they fit in in the big picture. We reply in silence, by shielding who we are. I like long conversations after the world has fallen asleep. We speak in the rhythm of the nature of the world around us. The ones who stick around long after it's all said and done are the ones who you should give the most of yourself to. The ones who stand by your side when you know that you're wrong. Those are the ones that give meaning to life. They will tell you what you've done, how you need to fix the world you've created.
We are small flecks of energy in a much bigger cosmos. Be you, but do not, under any circumstances, think that people will always appreciate you if you give too much away. Generosity is measured in small fragments. Many will use your words against you to haunt you down one day. In truth, we will never fully understand. Just know that not everything you learn is supposed to be shared outside of your own soul. Sometimes, those who are most wise are not able to give themselves the same advice. I am but a student of the world, trapped in my own paradigm.
In International Trade we learn the idea of comparative advantage, and how countries benefit from trading with each other if one is better at producing a commodity than another.
Within the first few lectures the professor will emphasize that a country doesn’t need absolute advantage for trade to be beneficial, just comparative advantage.
I think this concept can be applied to team dynamics.
Last week the magic integration of Kindle books with professional narration dropped on iOS! This tilts the book buying choice back in favor of Kindle over the iBook store.
So how can this make me smarter (being as I'm already pretty smart)? Well now when you buy a book, if there is professional narration, you can add it for a discounted price. This allows you to listen to books on walks, getting ready in the AM or waiting in line, and follow along in the Kindle book at the same time, when something catches your ear. The pages even turn for you.
This combined approach to learning is handy because, if a jew of wisdom is dropped on your head, you can immediately highlight it in the book for future reference. Internalizing key insights you are exposed to, through study and reference, is what delivers the value that enticed you to buy the book to start with. This is your easiest path to becoming the expert — by learning, and then by applying what you learned.
When getting ready for bed, if you do a little reading after hours, you can read the Kindle book visually, and pick up the next morning in the same place, listening as you get ready. This is a feature owners of Kindle e-readers have had for a while, but it has finally come to iOS, which is a smart business move by Amazon.
Where you left off in your book, your bookmarks, notes, and highlights sync across devices too — so switching between your iPhone, iPad or Kindle device couldn’t be easier. It is a very pleasant way to absorb information. Most of us are visual learners, and others auditory, but the combination of the two is immersive, and the convenience of switching between the two is unparalleled.
I have a little routine when I wake up in the mornings, it happens something a little like this:
This usually happens a few times before I actually get out of bed, yesterday morning was slightly different. Why? It was an exam day. Instead of shielding my eyes from the sunlight my mouth turned dry, my head span, my palms started sweating, my stomach wrenched uncomfortably and a million thoughts started rushing through my head. What if I didn't revise enough? What if I forgot the time of the exam? My morning was filled with worries.
Now, a day later, I feel lethargic. As do many of my classmates who sat the exam. So what is it about exam that is so worrying? Well the honest answer is I don't know. Well of course I do, there are many worry things about exams. The important ones can change the course of your life. But even the ones that are not this important are somewhat worrying. But why? Why worry?
I think the main cause for exam stress is the constant self-depreciating comparison to others. The first thing you do when your results come through is to compare with others. But we were not born like this. We did not come out of our mother comparing notes, can you imagine it? "Oh my stay was much better than yours" says one infant to another. This is a ludicrous thought. So where does this need come from?
At first I was going to title this talking VS doing, but the whole point is that you need both.
I'm sure you've all heard "Don't talk the talk, walk the walk" or some variation of it, point being you need to follow through with your actions. "Actions speak louder than words" too.
And this is true for the most part. But you need both. You can't just rely on the doing, even moreso today than 50 years ago (of course I wasn't around 50 years ago so I could be mistaken).
In the vast majority of cases, a person should follow the traditional advice so they err on the side more doing, less talking. But, if you're smart or productive and have legit value to the world, often the doing isn't enough. In fact, the highly competent people could probably reverse the old sayings and turn out better.
After ten years running Samovar Tea Lounge I’ve experienced many highs and my fair share of low points. The worst times were the periods of fear, uncertainty, and doubt--the three demons that eclipse goodness and hope, consuming everything in their path as things that once seemed so sure and solid crumble to pieces.
Over the years I’ve had plenty of opportunity to look Fear in the eyes, and while it’s never been easy, with the guidance of mentors, friends, family, and a whole lot of reflection I’ve learned to stand my ground. Here’s what I’ve learned.
Name it. Face it down. Look it in the eyes. Call out what you feel: Fear? Say it. Anxiety? Say it. Anger? Say it and identify it. Running or squirming away from the feeling will only make it bigger.
Be present. This moment is the only moment. Do whatever it takes to become present. I like to pay attention to my breath. Inhale for an eight-count. Exhale for an eight-count. Repeat three or four times, increasing the length of both the in- and out-breath.
It looks like the age of graduating from college only to return to our childhood homes to live most of our twenties with our parents is here to stay (of course, there are exceptions, my brother being one of them). This doesn't have to be a time of prolonged childhood and irresponsibility the way most critics characterize it. Actually, its an opportunity that can be utilized to supercharge most any young person willing to take advantage. Just so long as we're willing to give up the idea of spending all our time goofing off, playing video games for fun, and watching TV all day. So, what can one do to take advantage of an extension on the "I don't have to worry about paying for the food in my stomach or roof over my head" time this affords them? Check out some of the ideas below and let us know what you think:
1 Continued Education: With resources like Khan Academy, Duolingo, Academic Earth, etc, its easier than ever to brush up on the basics or learn something new. Not to mention the way things are going, being bilingual in French or Spanish or an Asian language can be a huge attraction to employers depending on what you're going into and where you live.
2 Job Skills: Want to learn programming? Head over to Code Academy or the programming section of Khan and have at it. Want to learn how to work on a Harley? Take a look around and see if there's a place near you. Instead of seeing this time as an excuse to goof off, why not gain some attractive skills?
3 Hobby: Drawing, painting, photography, blogging, sketching, chess. Pick up a hobby. I guarantee it'll be more fulfilling than marathoning Attack on Titan for the third time (nothing wrong with AoT, I love that show). If it ends up making you some pocket money, great. Just don't do it expecting to be the next Leo Babauta or Hugh Mcleod.
4 Read: Reading can be extremely fulfilling and entertaining. Plus, if you've got a halfway decent library near you and an Inter-Library Loan system, this can be a one hundred percent free activity (unless of course you find something that you want to read the library doesn't have). More and more libraries are getting a growing collection of eBooks, so if you’ve got a reader you get to be even lazier. I'll get a list of recommendations up in the near future, but for now, just hop on your library's website or head to the local branch and wander around, see what catches your eye.
