  1. haven't give up yet i think it helps to have a strong why and self-discipline or grit and create habits so productivity becomes automatic and then only focus on one thing at a time likely with a deadline and in a form of a project or plan then action. scott h young have some good information on this in my opinion
  2. @Robert just becarefull about wish full thinking because in science what is true is true until proven otherwise and you can't just ignore the true like that then you are just in denial. You can't just chose what is true that is not how it works. If you are saying deliberate pratice isn't true then please provide the evidence to support it. Anders erickson talk about him self that it's true and have always been able to explain how somebody became good in hes book peak performance. And there is also books like deep work(cal newport says deep work is a part of deliberate pratice), talent is overrated thats should talk about this there is a lot of research that point towards deliberate pratice is true and that says talent is either not true or not as important as we think related to becoming world class at something as mentioned above. This is not just my opinion. What really matters is how much time you spend on deliberate pratice or purpose ful pratice on rarer and valuable skills. The more rarer and valuable skills you are good at the better chance you have of becoming so good you can't be ignored which cal newport also talks about if you just are good at common skills and that isn't that valuable you are likely not getting that much attention. One reason may be because they would be able easily to just find someone else with a similar skill set as the skills are common. The more you pratice the better chance you also have of developing mental representations which explain why people who are good at what they do don't necessarily or always have to pratice at something because they already have build the mental representations required. all of this is based on research i have read i have already mentioned some. An other source would be the top performer course by cal newport and hes book so good they can't ignore you. and sorry but did you actually read my comment because i even talk about how tall you are, are the only thing they found that came close to the definition of talent
  3. i think some time end of last year actually just checked again and one thing was added again this year
  4. the present moment is relative according to Einstein space-time
  5. Value is something you have a high interest in and appreciate or want where strength is something you are really good to do you feel confident when doing it. At least that is my understanding of it but it depends on the context this is how I understand it related to personal development
  6. @Otogi actually they do mean that there is no such thing as talent one of them is anderson erickson and he have been researching this for over 20 years and haven't found anything of people being born with talent which is why he means it when he says it or at least have not yet found it. The only thing he found was related to how tall someone was for example which can play a role in sports. Noticed that i am not saying this because its my opinion rather i am mentioning what they found which is based on a lot of research. At least to the research on deliberate practice which have been studying this they haven't found any talent. it all comes to how you pratice.
  7. Well if you read on deliberate pratice it agrees with this
  8. 1. be so good they can't ignore you/mastery 2. face fears directly 3. being as productive as possible on something meaningful 4. being able to get enough rest so i don't get burnt out 5. having good social experiences or a good social life 6. freedom 7.having a meaningful impact on the world from something authentic 8. having control over what i do 9. increase in awareness 10. optimize hope these count as values first time i am doing this exercise. Still, have more than this but probably what would be on a top ten list
  9. the best way to learn I would say would be to focus with out distraction on it the way cal newport explains in deep work with really high intensity of focus and then after you have learned it try to explain the concept as if you where teaching it to someone else(the feynman technique) this help to test out how much you actually understand of it and it improves your learning and it should also improve your memory of it as well. To commit it to memory I would recommend doing something called active recall where you try to recall the information without looking at a reference this help aviod the illusion of thinking you understand it but don't. So 1 focus with great intensity 2: the feynman technique 3: active recall(spaced repetition also helps). related to what order I would recommend watching something that is specifically related to something you are already trying to do in personal development. For example, if it has to do with emotions I would look at videos related to that. (if this was the case i would recommend watching leos video on how to deal with strong negative emotions first) But i recommend not spending to much time on theory i recommend watching leos video on balance theory vs pratice. And when taking action on it really do it, don't look for distractions or wessel your way out of it i know its really hard to do but i think this is the only way to really get the results you are looking for. Really face the situation directly without letting fear control you. You control the fear (of course without resisting the emotion). A strong why helps to get through it. Its also important to take responsibility.
  10. I recommend to take the top performer course by cal newport and scott h young ones its open it's will likely give you a better insight on how to achieve your goal and what really matters and how to get good at it. Because it help you to get more acurate insight from the people in your field. And it based from the research on deliberate pratice, the craftman mindset, and some scientific method that help you to figure out what matters.
  11. awesome but be careful not to end up spending to much time on mental masturbation also take action as this is where the growth comes from
  12. I think this is a huge trap and probably the biggest trap in my own life i am aware that leo have a video on one simple rule to ace life which sort of talk about this but i think it would be nice on a video about specifically this part(and how to overcome it) there is both good and bad things about comfort but it can be a trap to only pursue comfort as it will have little of the larger reward in life that are outside ones comfort zone especially if one keep seeking comfort for decades and the danger of it is that it can be done subconsciously so you may not even be aware of you are doing it and by doing it you become limited of what you can do if you can't go outside your comfort zone there is in a way no personal development or growth you could for example be limited to: learning hard things because it's uncomfortable, being on a stage in front of a lot of people, being 100% honest with your self and other people, taking 100% responsibility, taking action towards your goals, taking action towards big goals, being more social, being authentic 24/7, quitting addiction, letting difficult things in life stop your personal growth, letting difficult things in life make your comfort zone smaller because of something dangerous instead of growing as a person etc. the world is huge but by only pursuing comfort you limit your experience in it, the most dangerous of pursuing comfort is being alive but not actually living the life.
