Key Ideas

Old school things 

As we enter 2020, we try to remember the good, wholesome things that we used to do as kids, which are now a distant memory, because most of us are glued to technology and lost in a distraction-filled world.

Cooking from a cookbook

Remember the joy of having flour everywhere and olive oil on your fingers, or simply glancing over to an open book, rather than on a small screen of a smartphone which keeps on going off, or worse, gets filled with ads.

Listening to an actual radio

Listening to an actual radio frees us from the pressure of making decisions that we normally do while deciding what Podcast or digital station to listen to. It is a simple pleasure and the warm radio tones are soothing.

Repair broken stuff yourself

Attempting to fix things when they break is more satisfying than letting someone else taking care of them, or replacing them.

Blogging or personal website

Blogging, or just having your own little website was a great thing when the Internet wasn't hijacked by social media and retail giants.

Playing games around the table 

Playing games around a table with other people was a genuine treat and a really fun experience of togetherness.

Sitting down to a board game gets everyone together physically, and also mentally-you can't play a game while half-absorbed in your phone. It's easy to be fully present because there's always something to do, to hope for, and to talk about.

Disruption
Disruption

Digital technology has been indispensable during the current health crisis but its impact on human relationships remains complex. It is often intrusive and damaging to face-to-face relationships.

It's in the eyes

From the early years, babies tune into their caregivers' eyes to find comfort and understand emotion.

Today, with the use of mobile technology, the visual impact between people is often disrupted.

The still face experiment

In the experiment, parents freely play with their young children but are then instructed to be unresponsive by using a smartphone for a few minutes. After the period, parents may respond normally again.

In the experiment, children became distressed and discouraged when they could not connect with their parents. If the parents spent high levels of screentime at home, children showed less emotional resilience and greater difficulty reconnecting with their parents.

Self Reliance

If you’re waiting for someone to give you the right training to change your job or do something radically different in life you will wait forever.

Learning to Learn

Learning is not a rigidly formal system of precisely labeled steps.

Learning is messy. It’s trial and error. It’s failing and then failing again and then slowly figuring it out.

Give Up Magical Beliefs

You can’t borrow someone’s motivation. No matter how many books you read or chants you do you won’t become more motivated.

Motivation comes from inside. It comes from you and nowhere else.

The career pitfall
Careers used to be kind of like a 40-year tunnel. You picked your tunnel, and once you were in, that was that. You worked in that profession for 40 years or so before the tunnel spit you out on the other side into your retirement.

Today’s career landscape isn’t a lineup of tunnels, it’s a massive, impossibly complex, rapidly changing science laboratory. 

Why Career-path-carving is important.

Time. A typical career will take up somewhere between 20% and 60% of your meaningful adult time.

Quality of Life. Your career has a major effect on all your non-career hours.

Impact. Whatever shape your career path ends up taking, the world will be altered by it.

Identity. We tell people about our careers by telling them what we are.
