Essential skills for filtering information

  • Mindfulness: the awareness of context and of changes within that context.
  • Discernment: the ability to recognize and anticipate the consequences of the patterns around you.
  • Action: Having a bias for action and immediate implementation is how rapid learning occurs.
  • Expectancy: The belief in your ability to seize or create a future outcome.
  • Feedback: You shouldn’t and can’t avoid feedback if you want to learn. 
  • Adaptability: If you want to adjust to new norms, you’ll have to adapt to them.

Expectancy Theory of Motivation

3 things must occur for a person to have high motivation for achieving their goals: 

  • You must believe you can do what it takes to achieve your goal. 
  • You must believe that you know how to achieve it (you have the proper methods). 
  • You must believe that the rewards of a particular goal are personally meaningful.

Adapting to our circumstances

Whether you’re currently winning or losing in life — you will quickly adapt to your circumstances. The brain needs novelty to thrive, otherwise, it quickly becomes stale.
