We Are Going After The Wrong Ideas

People rarely assess what their ideas are worth in an accurate way, failing to see the potential of the real gems and moving forward with less-promising or safer ventures.

While brainstorming, the second or third choice of ideas which are lower priority to us, often resonate well with others. The person with the ideas is paying more attention to the less abstract ideas which are close to their ultimate goal and do not need much imagination or foresight.

Problem Solving

The best-case scenario

The best-case scenario is seldom the one that happens. It is okay to hope for the best. Some degree of optimism is necessary for trying anything new. Without it, we would not start a business or enter a new relationship.

Even when the best-case scenario comes to pass, it rarely unfolds according to plan. Unforeseen problems may appear due to lack of information. Or our ideas may take much longer to implement.

The Lost Art Of Reading
  • There is not secret of reading more, and the only way is to just do it. It is like eating, a non-negotiable activity of our lives.
  • Still we need to find the motivation, the justification and the time to do what we should be doing anyway.
  • The problem is compounded in the last decade as the world gets more and more distractional.

When you are thinking and thinking about something ask yourself: Will this matter in 5 years? Or even in 5 weeks?

It allows you to stop thinking about something and to focus your time and energy on something else that actually does matter to you.

This rule was developed by Anders Ericsson and popularized by Malcolm Gladwell and states that we need  10,000 hours of deliberate practice to succeed at anything.

This may create feelings of frustration, especially if you feel you don't have enough time.

Intentional Knowledge: Selective Ignorance

Ignorance indeed is bliss, if practised selectively. News, people, topics, projects can drain a lot of our energy, and most of us seep into everything knowledgeable, thinking it’s the right thing to do.

The unlimited amount of information available on news sites, podcasts, social media can overwhelm anyone. One has to cultivate an intentional approach to one’s content consumption, work and relationships.

Jeff Bezos's Regret-minimization framework
Project yourself forward to the age of 80. Looking back on your life, you want to minimize the number of regrets. 

Thinking about your potential regrets give you clarity. It also helps you to remove a few pieces of confusion in the present caused by alternative paths. It helps you make the right decision more easily.

We Are Put Off By Fear

We always think about the risks involved in making a big chance in life. We consider the risks and then decide not to do it. But, the risks shouldn't scare us into inaction.

Education during epidemics

94% of countries implemented some form of remote learning during the pandemic. And this is not the first time that educators have made use of remote learning.

During a polio outbreak in 1937, the Chicago school system used radio to teach children. During other communicable illnesses, schools typically halted formal learning. Some kids played more while others went back to work at home or on family farms. School sometimes compensated for lost education by shifting the academic calendar or mandating Saturday attendance.

Reading: A Meditation

Reading can be harnessed into a great opportunity for mindfulness, and provide us with space to be in the present moment.

Many times a day, we unconsciously read a banner advertisement or a text notification on our smartphones, not realizing that we only read passively, and not give much thought to this amazing ability.
