Owning and operating a brain is hard. You are issued one at birth, a model that comes riddled with delusions and biases, prone to logical fallacies, and built to create stories to help explain the difficult and messy business of being a person.

Interesting article: You believe a lot fewer ridiculous things than even the smartest people did just a few hundred years ago, but that doesn't make you smarter than them, just less dumb.

(From the article): Mentally strong people can tolerate being alone and they don’t fear silence. They aren’t afraid to be alone with their thoughts and they can use downtime to be productive. They enjoy their own company and aren’t dependent on others for companionship and entertainment all the time but instead can be happy alone.

Instead of Making Resolutions, Dream

Instead of Making Resolutions, Dream | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Forget the small stuff, for now. What's your big objective?

 

As January approaches, and we bid another year adieu, our thoughts turn to making resolutions: this year I will lose that extra weight, drink less alcohol, give up sugar, get out of debt. All worthy goals, but why do we perennially return to resolutions that seem based on the idea of fixing all the things we're doing "wrong?"

 

You can't know what resolution you need until you know what your objective is. In photography, the resolution of the image is entirely dependent on the output you want. If you're looking at an image on your computer monitor, 72 dpi (dots per inch) is fine, but if you want to print that image, you'll need a much higher resolution, say 240 dpi. If you then want to make that image into a billboard, you actually need a relatively lower dpi, because the further away you are from it, the more your eyes will blend the colors for you (think of a Georges Seurat painting).

It’s so true. I think that we should consider this advice. If you’re not a dreamer, and if you can’t respect your commitments, this post will give you few interesting tracks.
