In an effort to help me keep up with everything I post each week, here is my latest “Sunday Summary” of my posts from the week.
Mon, January 15: Do you want to write more? Do nothing.
If you can’t find the spark to create, a good technique is to not allow yourself any other option. Before long, creation seems like a fun way out.
Tue, January 16: Make friends with the eminent dead
Those that went before us can teach us a tremendous amount, and much of it can be found in books all around us.
Wed, January 17: Be a better ancestor
Being a great descendant to those that have gone before us is a great thing to do, but even better is to work hard to leave a great world for those that come later.
Thu, January 18: Chauffeur knowledge versus true knowledge
It’s easy for many people to memorize a bit of knowledge and sound smart, and it’s up to us to determine if they really know their stuff or if they simply can spout some impressive lines.
Fri, January 19: Their tricks can work even if you know about them
There are a lot of psychological tricks that companies try to use to get us to spend more money. In many cases, those tricks still work even if we know exactly what they’re trying to do to us.
Sat, January 20: Dance incoherently or just admit that you don’t know the answer
If you don’t know the answer to a problem you can dance around and try to fake it, or you can simply admit that you don’t know, which allows everyone to move on to try to find the answer instead of wasting time.
I hope you found some value in this. If you ever have questions, ideas, or disagreements regarding anything I write, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
