Capacities, distinctions, intelligence, and success in life: there is a strong correlation. The Stone Soup fairy tale is an excellent teaching story.
Let’s start with debunking the current world view, that intelligence is inborn. We are all born tabula raza… a blank slate.
Your intelligence depends on the number of large chunks, neural connections permanently formed in your brain firing together automatically. Those chunks are created in learning. Not learning about… no, actual learning a skill to unconscious competence. Driving a vehicle is unconscious competence for most. Reading and comprehending? not so much. Continue reading “Stone Soup: the fairy tale. Case studies galore”
People with the same size brain are as different in what they can do, as a pop and mom store and Walmart, the company.
If we compare people with computers, which we can… we can do whatever the hell we want to do, can’t we? So when we compare these two things: a human and a computer, is the difference in what they can do in the hardware or the software?
Most people are trying to upgrade their hardware: eat right, sleep, get up early, smart drugs, blah blah blah.
When you look, the entire medical and scientific establishment also spends most of their resources on improving the hardware, making it serve longer, fix it (diseases)… and no one seems to pay any attention to what someone is going to do what that hardware.
Oh, and how will they do it, if they will do it?
Three things happened this morning that triggered this thought process. I’ll summarize in the end. Continue reading “Dopamine rush, coachability and a Stradivarius violin”
Simple answer: You lack skills and capacities… You can boil water, make coffee in the coffee maker, drive a car, open your smartphone… You are not quite hopeless… or are you? Not quite hapless either… or are you?
If you remember, my passion, my purpose, my reason d’etre is to penetrate the invisible portion of all knowledge. It gives me joy, and it keeps me busy.
One of the tools I use to do my “work” is the ability to see what I feel. See its size, nature, movement, and its connections to other things. I am an empath and I am (I hate the word) a clairsensar, which means what I just said… I see what I feel… blah blah blah. Continue reading “How to get out of the rut you are in?”
I realized today that I am still at the beginning phases of my “entrepreneurial” journey… meaning: I am not a seasoned entrepreneur.
Why that would be, you ask?
Today I had an insight. Everyone talks about knowing, maybe even knowing how to do something, but hardly anyone talks about building skills, the building blocks of a successful life.
There is a what to do… and then there is a how to do it… and they all look magical and at least foggy for most people…
There are so many how’s that I can promise you it takes years of diligent doing projects one after the other, with help, before you’ll get any good at it.
Here is an embarrassing example: I have been making my own capsules of supplements… I buy empty capsules and fill them with whatever I want to take. Continue reading “What does skill-building do to you, beyond building skills?”
Capacities, possibilities, new constructive attitudes…
- What these share is that they are words first and foremost.
- The second thing: saying the words will not make you that…
And unfortunately, it turned out that turning on the capacities in the DNA won’t create permanent changes… unless.
So what is the technology of inventing and making these capacities, possibilities and attitudes real?
This is what this article is about. It’s about you learning how to have what you want.
Let’s first talk about what people want… What you want. Continue reading “Capacities, possibilities, new constructive attitudes… How do you create them so you can have what you want?”
