Seneca

Key Ideas

A Little Win A Day

Success is like that proverbial tasty-looking sausage, which is less appealing once we know how it is made.

Success in anything is made up of a daily grind and is a sum total of small wins.

Building Success

Entire books can be completed by simply writing ‘two crappy pages a day’, but do remember that the ‘first draft of anything you write is shit!

Sudden success, if any, is a flash in the pan, and a tree whose roots aren’t deep cannot stand tall for long.

Win Bigly

A business statistic shows that just a 10 % improvement across seven categories of business results in a doubling of profits for the company. Small changes spread wide, resulting in big wins.

Small tweaks in our lives, our email subject lines, our handwriting and art, decreasing our procrastination time, saving money time and energy can have an overall profound impact.

Small Steps, Right Direction

If we stick to our rules and keep progressing in small steps, we reach our destination, if the direction is right.

All we have to do is improve a little bit every day.

"Science is what you know. Philosophy is what you don’t know."

Defining philosophy

Philosophy is examining our understanding of reality and knowledge. Philosophy consists of three major branches:

  1. Metaphysics - What is true about existence.
  2. Epistemology - How we can know that it is true. Epistemology has given us science, logic/reason, economics, psychology, and other theories of knowledge.
  3. Ethics - What actions we should take as a result of this knowledge. Ethics contains concepts such as democracy, human rights, the treatment of animals, and the environment.

When you order your thoughts into a coherent belief system, you are engaging in philosophy. To criticize philosophy, you must rely on philosophy.

People With High Hopes

People with high hope have a good number of difficult, challenging goals, and a good scorecard of achievement.

They have lower rates of anxiety and depression and greater happiness. They cope well with problems that consume the rest of the world.

Hope = Goals + Agency + Pathways

Instead of wishful thinking, we need to know what we want (specific goals), and have the drive and passion to go towards it (agency) and should be able to generate methods and devices to achieve what we want (pathways).

When we do a sum total of these three, we get hope: Hope= Goals + Agency + Pathways

Weak Words Used Often

Every word you use while working expresses something about your personal brand, your confidence, state of mind, authority and knowledge. The verbs that we put in sentences are key to our ima...

'Think'

We use "I think: often while at work, but it's a dysfunctional addition to a start of a sentence, that while ok to use occasionally in trivial situations, is to be avoided in meetings or one-on-ones. 

Try replacing it with "I'm confident".

'Need'

When we use "I need" at the start of a sentence it sounds like pleading rather than empowered. It makes us sound needy.

Swap "I need" with "Please" to sound polite and confident.
