One should always take a hard, honest look at one’s life, not being afraid to change one’s course.

Key Ideas

Being Authentic

Not everyone achieves top-level success. There is far too much competition, noise and fragmentation in the world for everyone to shine through.

A lot of people are unique and highly skilled, but not everyone makes it. The key to being seen and heard in this noise is to be genuine, authentic and able to express your true self.

Open Up and Show Yourself

Showing your vulnerability, sincerity, and honesty isn’t comfortable, but is a sign of courage. Truthful and sincere people shine like the sun and can be spotted easily in this noisy world.

Being able to talk about failure and your weaknesses makes you human and also inspires the people around you. When you come across as relatable, warm and flawed, it acts as a silver foil over your skillsets.

Amuse Yourself

Life is not to be taken too seriously. Not everything will be like the way you want it to be. Make it your playground.

There will be blunders, mistakes, miscalculations, and some disastrous days as well. The trick is to not let anything get to you, and have fun with every moment, enjoying it to the fullest.

“Authenticity is more than speaking; Authenticity is also about doing. Every decision we make says something about who we are.”

The Truth Serum

Simply live life wholeheartedly and money, fame, status are just some of the things you will experience. If you are authentic, no matter what happens, you are a success by default.

Building effective mentoring relationships

Mentoring requires having a clear idea of how the sessions themselves are to happen. 

Make sure that from the very beginning you communicate to your mentee exactly how all is going to take place: how often, where, how, etc. Get to know the other and use all the means you dispose of in order to help him or her reach the desired goal.

A mentor's real purpose

More than giving directions, a mentor is supposed to provide the so-called pieces of supportive advice, which will enable the mentee to make up her or his mind, based on their own beliefs.

Sesame Street
Sesame Street

Before Sesame Street, music wasn't even considered as a means to teach children. But Sesame Street changed that and proved that kids are very receptive to a grammar lesson contained in a song.

Musical stars

Big-name stars lined up to make guest appearances. Stevie Wonder and Grover; Loretta Lynn and the Count; Smokey Robinson and a marauding letter U. "Sesame Street" also showcased Afro-Caribbean rhythms, operatic powerhouses, Latin beats, Broadway showstoppers, and bebop.

Now, after 4,526 episodes, the legacy is evident: It impacted the music world as much as it shaped TV history, inspiring fans and generations of artists.

The goal

The aim of "Sesame Street" was to build school preparedness and narrow the educational gap between lower- and upper-income children.

They used pedagogy advice from a Harvard professor. Research also showed children were more receptive when they watched with caregivers, so celebrities were introduced.

Don't repress negative feelings

That means if someone close to you asks, “How are things?” You respond with, “I feel like dog shit,” not with, “Oh, I’m greeeeeeat,” and then run away to cry into your cereal bowl and wonder why nobody in the world cares about you. - Mark Manson

The "swimmer's body illusion"

It's a thinking mistake and it occurs when we confuse selection factors with results. 

Professional swimmers don't have perfect bodies because they train extensively. Rather, they are good swimmers because of their physiques.

The sunk cost fallacy

It plays on this tendency of ours to emphasize loss over gain.

The term sunk cost refers to any cost that has been paid already and cannot be recovered. The reason we can't ignore the cost, even though it's already been paid, is that we're wired to feel loss far more strongly than gain.

Life Lessons from Spirited Away
  1. “Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.” Jim Morrison
  2. Never be motivated by your greed. Chihiro was primarily motivated by a purpose – rescuing her parents.

  3. Help others on their purposeful journey to the destination. When you help people around you with your generosity and tenacity, people feel the gratitude to help you back even if you don’t ask for it.

  4. Show your gratitude and say thanks to the people who have ever helped you in any way.

  5. Continued determination is the key to success.

  6. Keep faith in your action irrespective of the outcome. Eventually it will pay off.

  7. Don’t be content with the precious gifts you have received without working hard for having them. They are illusionary and treacherous and can betray you at any point in time.

Choice minimalism
  • Simplify the wardrobe. We tend to wear the same 10–20% of our wardrobes for 80%+ of the time. 
  • Eat the same few meals
  • Design a morning routine and save your willpower for important decisions later in the day.
  • Shop the periphery. The unhealthy stuff is built into the center, so stay on outskirts: there are fewer options AND it’s healthier.
  • Set “key objectives” before bed to saves time in the morning when you want to jump right into doing focused work.
