I have a brain that is a pattern seeking machine.
A pattern is when something is repeating, form, essence, pitch, sequence, day of the week, month of the year, etc… something that connects seemingly unconnected things together.
Seeing patterns can save lives, and animals living in the wild still have the capacity, but humans living in a comfortable world, have lost it… to their detriment.
Often the activity is called: connecting the dots… Even if Steve Jobs says: it is only possible to connect the dots backwards. He talks about different dots… he talks about the cause and effect type of dots, not the patterns. Continue reading “Process-conscious vs result-conscious… fulfillment every day vs one day someday”
Notice that you want to do things out of order…
…for example: fix something that you don’t understand what it is, you just KNOW that it’s wrong. Put the cart in front of the horse. Never bother to find the cause… the real cause of anything… the laws of nature.
You may be doing all the steps that can produce the results you want, but what happens if and when you are doing them out of order? Or you don’t give enough time to each step to perform its magic, out of greed or hunger or impatience?
You’ll lose time… you’ll lose money… and you’ll lose your faith. Continue reading “The process of becoming a genius…”
One of my ex-students sent me an email today. He is an ex-student, because I could not get him to achieve any results whatsoever.
But he has sent me valuable information before, so I read the email.
He sent me to a short video about Cal Newport’s book: Be so good they can’t ignore you.
I watched it. It was good. 30% truth value. Same as the book. 30% truth value is exceptional… but…
It is a topic that is in the forefront of most people’s mind: how to have the eight plus hours of work, the activity that provides you with enough money to live on, enjoyable. Not drudgery. Not feeling like a tool, feeling like a slave. Not something you have to do, but something you get to do. Not something that after that you can have your own life… something you are deprived of for eight whole hours.
Thousands of books are written to these people… and all of them are low truth value.
When something is only 30% truth value, you can be sure it won’t work unless you find the missing truth. Continue reading “Do you need passion to love your work? Purpose? the right work? What is the truth about that?”
Yesterday I had a conversation where I had a number of opportunities to see how and what way your unclarity, your vocabulary, shows up, not as a theory, but as a reality.
How it prevents you from seeing reality, or hearing what is being said.
It was somewhat new to me, so if it was new to me, it will be really new to you.
