  1. i think first having a clear goal one at a time with a deadline can help then use either of these two techniques: loss aversion. Work progress journal. Loss aversion is the idea that we are more likely to be motivated if we have something to lose so you could owe someone money if you don't finish your goal. The work progress journal should be that its embarrassing to write down your reasons for procrastination on paper which may help to make you motivated. sources: blender guru from youtube(The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Artists) and cal newport(how to become a straigt a student)
  2. Probably best to accept them as they are. I don't think its a good idea to force people to be different than who they already are. But you could introduce them to self help and let them decide for them self. i think in the book the road less traveld scott m peck says that love is not wanting someone else to be an exact copy of your self but to learn to love the difference in them.
  3. not videos but some techniques i have found useful for motivation is: Loss aversion. Where the idea is that we are much more likely to be motivated if we have something to lose so to use this as motivation you could say you owe someone money if you don't finish your goal. Someone called belender guru have done this in a video called The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Artists. an other thing is a work progress journal. This idea comes from cal newport. The idea should be that if i remember right that writing down the excuses we make for procrastinating can be embarrassing if we are honest about it so that can be a motivation for getting them done. I recommend looking it up for more accurate detail. The idea comes from how to be a straight A student. The ideas should help making goals more urgent. It can also help adding deadlines.
  4. The same thing before we where born. Just nothingness. No awareness.
  5. I think this is an essential step to do real personal development. the fears we aviod become our limits but facing them lift us to greater achievements.
  6. I recommend do total immersion that's what scotthyoung did to learn four languages in one year. it's basically the idea to do every single thing in that language. If you think about something do it in that language. If you say something do it in that language basically everything in that language. It should be really effective. i haven't heard anything that masterbation could reduce memory. I highly doubt that the brain works in that way.
  7. Related to career I recommend checking out scotthyoung. The best way to improve your career is to get good at rarer and valuable skills. related to concentration it may just be a matter of practice and do it without distractions. alternative look up cal newport he have good advice on procrastination in how to become a straigt a student and maybe look up something called loss aversion. It's the idea that we are more motivated if there is a consequence. You could for example say you owe someone a specific amount of money if you don't finish the task. i think the best way to solve a problem is to be as direct as possible (or at the root cause) otherwise it may not have the effect you are after. @ sky_dreamer it doesn't matter the brain can't multitask according to science only switch task quickly. Task can be automatic but it can't multitask. It's also more effective to single task.
  8. No worries that make sense. Thanks for the infomation If I understand it correctly is it to do something authentic to help one being motivated to finish?
  9. @Timothy what have star wars to do with this? I already seen the movie but not sure how its supposed to help with this. When i search for hes name nothing related to this comes up so i am a bit confused. It seems a bit unrelated.
  10. Would be really useful with a video on this. Without this skill you can't really do any personal development. something called loss aversion may be useful to use as a technique to finish what one started. some other ideas: delayed gratification. grit. habits and routines.
  11. Just thought it was really interesting and then it grow from there after spending more time and getting better at it. No book helped me at the time. But a good book on the subject is books by cal newport.
  12. Deep work and so good they can't ignore you by cal newport. They give great insights on how to be a top performer.
  13. @Greenbirch cal newport also have a solution for that with hes top performer course one of it is that you find people you admire and then figure out what skill made them valuable and then get good at it. So the chance of ending up in a bad situation is probably not very likely if you do it correctly. the people you admire could have traits that match your deepest values and then you could re create how they got them for yourself. if someone have become great at something so can you by the methods in the top performer course. Which is based on scientific research on expertise like deliberate practice, deep work, research methods to find rarer and valuable skills to get good which should work for everyone. but yes responsibility is required.
  14. What exactly do you want to know about it? or do you mean leo should travel the world and film it?
