Self Improvement

131 STASHED IDEAS

The audience is looking for an escape from the mundane reality and an action flick often does not provide the mental stimulation or an uplifting of the human spirit. 

They would prefer a courtroom drama, where heroism is not shown by muscle power, but by the presence of mind, resilience and legal chops.

Self Improvement

Revenge has a universal appeal, as does the righting of something wrong or unfair. Justice is first denied and then reclaimed by hard work and sweat, with the audience rooting for the lawyer in charge of setting things right, facing hard challenges.

Law movies do not portray a real courtroom, but change their pace in order to be entertaining. The audience are not looking for accuracy, but a good story that gives justice to the one who is mistreated by law, and to put the real wrongdoer behind bars, whatever it takes.

Law movies offer legal wisdom and often have justice prevailing in the end. The audience is enthralled by the wit and the voyeurism, where internal details are filled with drama and mystery, offering an inside look at how a lawyer stands up for someone in the court of law.

The human experience, vulnerable and raw, is on full display in legal stories, whose choreography, twists, and impossible odds are loved by filmmakers and the audience.

Hollywood’s Love For Movies With Lawyers

Movies about law, having heroic or ferocious lawyers often strike gold in Hollywood, giving good competition to big-ticket movies.

To Kill A Mockingbird, a 1962 adaptation of a book by Harper Lee, had the character Atticus Finch, a fictional lawyer who became the greatest hero of all American cinema in a list ‘100 Years... 100 Heroes and Villains’ by the American Film Institute.

Well-known movie stars like Gregory Peck, Tom Cruise and Kevin Costner have portrayed lawyers.

Movies about lawyers, like Gandhi, 12 Angry Men and Philadelphia have made it to the Top 50 movies of all time in the ‘100 Years... 100 Heroes and Villains’ list by the American Film Institute.

The way we organize our tabs is to blame for the problem of tab overload. Having multiple windows open at the same time has now outlived its usefulness.

A better option is to group them as ‘tasks’ and arrange them organically, with the related tabs simply showing as a task. This helps reduce the clutter and keeps the eye on the ball, making us more productive.

Browser Tabs: An Outdated Browsing Habit

Browser tabs, introduced in the early 2000s, are widely used but are now being considered an outdated concept that may hinder our productivity.

They are now seen as a manifestation of our cluttered mind and the work that is pending, bleakly staring at us. Browser tabs increase anxiety, divide our attention and crash our machines when overloaded to the hilt.

Paul McCartney

“I only had two alternatives. Give up or carry on.”

John Lennon

“We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections.”

  1. Mastery experiences: Convince yourself about your capability by completing small but difficult tasks using deliberate practice.
  2. Vicarious experiences: Observe and be with people doing the tasks you want to do successfully. Find mentors and guides that push you towards your success.
  3. Social persuasion: Create opportunities for review and feedback in an earlier stage of the project, ensuring it is sincere.
  4. Our emotional state: Remove stressful thoughts and focus on being effective and positive by changing your inner voice.

How to hack your self-efficacy to provide you with the desired confidence, in spite of the inevitable obstacles:

  1. Break your goal into smaller tasks.
  2. Track your progress using any tracker app.
  3. Set up steps to get feedback at an early stage.
  4. Ask questions, request for help and guidance.
  5. Keep your stress and doubts aside for a while.
  6. Celebrate your wins, however small and reflect on what has worked.

Procrastination, motivation and focus relate to our emotions and internal feelings. Fear and uncertainty play a big role in these emotional issues. Low self-efficacy lowers our guard towards the internal distractions and one is easily stressed out.

A high self-efficacy insulates us from the emotional problems that affect our focus negatively.

The Worst Offender In Your Lack Of Focus

Lack of self-efficacy, that is your confidence (or belief) in navigating a challenging situation and shooting down potential obstacles is a fundamental reason for the inability to focus.

  • Coined in 1977 by psychologist Albert Bandura, self-efficacy is different from confidence, as it relates to a particular task or topic.
  • High self-efficacy results in less stress and depression and almost guarantees your personal accomplishment.
  • A low self-efficacy results in procrastination, failure and blame games.

A fun feature of satellites includes high-resolution imagery.

Through this technique, we are able to identify ships that do not submit signals of their locations by differentiating the locations of the ones that do, thus preventing ourselves from piracy.

High-resolution imagery is also useful for spotting whether a colony of animals is slowly dying or not. Scientists are able to count and identify the animals through high-resolution imagery. Although it is still far from being able to track an individual animal.

It is extremely useful for conservationists because it can help them protect endangered animal species from either being poached or encroached on by people.

There is no country or entity that is able to claim a region of space, not even a superpower country.

Satellites provide data to activists, journalists, and even investigators in order to pursue saving as many lives as possible.

Due to the help of satellites, communities are able to speak up for what they believe in and are then able to tackle issues such as illegal deforestation, government fabrications, and even the prosecution of war criminals.

Overhead, we have about 3000 satellites that assist us in monitoring natural disasters such as forest fires and tropical storms.

The data that we've gathered from these satellites allow us to study the behavior and predict its patterns to further support our response teams and relief efforts.

Many countries have already approved of sharing satellite data regarding this matter, and the coordinated global use of satellites amounts to almost 700 possibilities.

Satellites and Financial Transactions

Contactless payments would never have been possible if we didn't have satellites. Literally, all of our financial transactions rely on satellites' locations and timing services for security purposes as well.

If the satellite's timing isn't in sync with the others, it is possible for money to be lost in the transaction.

The existence of extra-terrestrials is dependent on what we believe in. Satellites are able to see anything even outside our solar system.
