Linguists have long known that human speech seems to be governed

For example, shorter words are used in different languages more often than longer ones. Biologists have noticed this, and many have wondered whether these linguistic laws apply to biological phenomena. Indeed, a new review published in Trends in Ecology and Evolution discusses their findings in detail.


Key takeaways

There are various laws of linguistics; for example, famous words are shorter than less popular words.

These laws apply not only to human language but also to animal communication.

But the most surprising thing is that these rules appear almost everywhere, from species distribution and size to disease outbreaks, to protein structure.

  1. Focus  completely for 2-4 hours every day
  2. Do one thing at a time
  3. Permanently declutter your schedule

  1. Don't make big purchases unless you have 2x its price saved up
  2. Don't buy anything you can lease
  3. Don't spend to impress others
  4. Only spend your passive income

The Tao of Coaching

-Good coaching: help employees to solutions with guidance.

-Coaching returns: Relations, Team, increased Self-awareness.

-Effective feedback: “AID”: “Actions,” their “Impact”, “Desired” outcome.

-Organize coaching: GROW “Goal, Reality, Options, Wrap up.”

-Tailor coaching to fit employee’s “skill & will to accomplish the task.”

-Determine factors that motivate employees.

-Focus on strategic and operational goals.

-If coached, never get defensive, just express gratitude.

-Take “voluntary, visible, irrevocable & specific” steps to goals.

-When coaching higher-ups, stay positive for the first few sessions.

Be Patience

Let go to get it all.

Be patient to receive what you want.

Your desperation will push it away.

Accept reality as it is. Everything will come to you.

Be Humble

The more you learn, you realize how little you know.

As you learn, you see there are infinite unknowns that you didn't even know about.

You become smaller. Be humble. Life is amazing.

Vulnerability is attractive.

The real you will stand out in this fake world.

Your openness shows trust, honesty, and empathy.

You will be loved by worthwhile people.

Embrace Failure

Failure leads to success.

Failure teaches you the wrong paths.

This is the only way to find the right path.

You should never attach your self-worth to failure.

Be Brave

Wherever you go, there you are.

You will not outrun your inner demons.

They will arrive at your new destination.

You must be brave and face your shadow.

Trust Your Gut

Not making a decision, is a decision.

You are tricking yourself by not choosing.

You are choosing indirectly when time runs out.

Trust your gut. Breathe. Aim. Fire.

The more you try to impress people, the less impressed they’ll be.

You know when someone is fake.

Just be you. You are incredible.

You respect someone who is free and authentic.

Be courageous. Charge forward.

If something scares you, you should probably do it.

Fear is your passion in disguise.

This is your opportunity to become more than you are.

Talk less to say more

Scarcity has value.

Say less.

Your words now hold more weight.

The best things in life are free

You will forget about a promotion on your deathbed.

You will remember your child's laugh, holding your spouse's hand, and all the love you shared.

“As long as custom and command ruled the world, the problem of riches and poverty hardly struck the earlier philosophers at all, other than to be accepted with a sign or railed at as another sign of man’s inner worthlessness”

-Robert L. Heilbroner

The 30-year-old person who is passionate about economics and the biographies of major influential figures in the economy, the 22-year-old student who wants to study outside their curricula, or the 34-year-old stock market investor who wants to gain a deeper understanding of the field by studying macroeconomics from its fundamentals.

The Worldly Philosophers covers the lives and works of many of the most influential economists in history, providing detailed biographical information about each one and explaining what their contributions were.

It also provides an overview of how economic thought has developed over time and how it has affected our world. This book would be excellent for anyone who wants to learn more about how modern economics has evolved over time.

Many consider Adam Smith as the father of modern economics. That’s because he popularized a highly relevant piece of writing in 1776 titled “The Wealth of Nations”. This paper created a theory that provides a simple answer for how markets are highly efficient. And they regulate themselves through supply and demand.

The theory advocates for the Invisible Hand Mechanism, a concept that popularized the idea of a market determined by supply and demand in which states must not interfere. But only regulate what needs to be regulated, legally speaking.

History proves once again to be the teller of our present and future. And the best metric to analyze our actions and their consequences today. Actions of the past show how rulers who enforce their visions upon citizens and interfere with the economy and deemed to fall.

The 5-year economic plans in the Soviet Union, the forced labor in Egypt, or the enforced traditions and customs in China or India over the economic systems show that states are better left outside the economic machine. People should have freedom of choice in their economic endeavors.

Regardless of the theories they produced, every economist wanted to find out how to organize a society in the best way, economically and socially speaking.

The economists’ quest for this holy grail underlies their seemingly disparate approaches and theories. Yet their shared desire has led them to develop numerous similar ideas.

We can broadly divide economic theory into two categories: microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics focuses on individual markets and how changes in prices, supply and demand affect them.

  • All economists sought to understand one common concept: how society works.
  • A market ruled by tradition, coercion, and rules of the past is deemed to crash.
  • Adam Smith is considered the father of modern economics due to his invaluable theory presented in 1776.

Economics is not complicated. But it’s fun and relevant. Don’t believe me? Let’s explore these three lessons in detail and you’ll see for yourself!

The Worldly Philosophers – Book Summary

The Worldly Philosophers is your hands-on guide to economics, how the world works overall but especially from a financial point of view, what are the social and economic systems that existed throughout history, and how certain people’s concepts got to shape the world we know today.

The Worldly Philosophers is a comprehensive and engaging book that provides readers with a thorough understanding of the development of modern economic philosophy. The book received favorable reviews from the New York Times. And it has received praise from various other publications as well.

  • The romanticizer - the type of person who says, where's my Prince Charming? I love love. Love is something that happens to you, and if it feels like work, then you're with the wrong person.
  • The maximizer: the person who says to you, I like my girlfriend, but I could be 5% happier with somebody else, or is there someone out there slightly better for me or slightly hotter or slightly more ambitious or make slightly more money?
  • The hesitator: the type of person who isn't even dating because, in their mind, they're not ready to date yet. They say, I'll be ready to date when I get a more impressive job, I figure stuff out with my family. And it's always this, one day, they'll wake up and be perfect and ready to date, but they're not yet.
