The Agile Method To Organize Your Life

The Agile prioritization techniques help us break tasks into tiny subtasks and then rank them from top priority to least priority.

  • It is hard to prioritize a long list of tasks, all of which seem important.
  • Completing a task, no matter how insignificant, releases dopamine inside our brains, giving it a feel-good reward.
  • The Agile method makes large tasks easier to do and makes us more productive.

Problem Solving

Benefits of thinking like a detective

Clear thinking is essential for every aspect of life, yet many of us have not really learnt how to think and make safe judgments under pressure.

When you learn to think like a detective, you can gain an advantage in the following areas:

  • It can help you think sharper and more creative.
  • It can make you a better listener that is less judgmental.
  • It can help you solve everyday problems.
Judy Blume
Each of us must confront our own fears, must come face to face with them. How we handle our fears will determine where we go with the rest of our lives. To experience adventure or to be limited by the fear of it.

You don't need to master every detail of every subject to become a world-class thinker.

If you can master the fundamentals of each discipline, then you can develop a remarkably accurate and useful picture of life.

Read your way to success

85 % of millionaires read at least two books per months.

So, as cliche as it sounds, people who read, succeed.

Big decisions are significant because they are rare

We make decisions throughout life. Some decisions are big and affect our lives for years or even decades.

A big decision is so significant because it is rare. You don't get an opportunity to learn from your mistakes. This makes it important to learn from others who have been there before.

  • Is to spend more than half of your work day in a semi-conscious state, in-and-out of focus
  • to be addicted to technology, stimulants, unhealthy eating, and distraction
  • to lack purpose in your life
  • to be apathetic
  • to not really believe in anything with enough conviction to sacrifice for it, invest in it, and fight for it.

Reading fictional tales with diverse characters makes a reader more tolerant and open-minded towards marginalized groups.

Young readers are less discriminating and more inclusive towards others who come from a different socio-economic background or look different than them.

The Benjamin Franklin Effect Mechanism

Some researchers think this effect comes from our need to reconcile us doing someone a favor and us not liking that person, so we assume that we like them. 

Other researchers think that the one being asked for help senses that the one asking wants to get friendly with them and in turn reciprocates the liking.

How your brain becomes dull

In the era where information can be easily accessed by almost everyone, the brain becomes less sharp because we don't use it to find or create solutions anymore.

The brain then gets discontented whenever we can't figure out an answer to our questions in an instant. It chooses to move away from the problem instead of trying to solve it.
