3 Things I Learned Last Week #43 – Crafting Visions, Unfair Advantages & Self-Control Secrets

🌟 Welcome to Issue #43 of “3 Things I Learned Last Week”! 🌟

Hey there, awesome humans! 🌈 Are you ready to turbocharge your week with a blend of brain candy and belly laughs? Let’s dive into this week’s edition for a fresh dose of insights and inspiration that’s more engaging than your last Tinder date (and way more informative, promise!).

This week, we’re exploring:

  1. Crafting a Vision for Progress (because wandering aimlessly is so 2022)
  2. Leveraging Your Unfair Advantage (Spoiler: You’ve got superpowers!)
  3. Mastering Self-Control (No, it’s not about resisting the cookie jar)

Strap in and let’s embark on this wisdom-packed journey!

πŸš€ Crafting a Vision for Progress

Ever feel like you’re navigating life with a broken GPS? I stumbled upon a compelling video that’s like your personal life-coach, but without the hourly rate. It breaks down progress into three steps:

  1. Craft a Vision: Think of it as designing your own video game character – who you want to be, minus the pixelated abs.
  2. Power of Attention: Like a cat with a laser pointer, where you focus really does matter.
  3. Surrender to the Feeling: Basically, embracing your inner Elsa and letting it go (into the universe).

πŸ”‘ Key Takeaways:

  • Build a vision board that’s more inspiring than a double rainbow.
  • Zoom in your attention like a paparazzi on a celeb.
  • Embrace the journey like you’re hugging a giant panda.

🌟 Leveraging Your Unfair Advantage

Remember when you thought everyone had the same advantages as PokΓ©mon cards? β€œThe Unfair Advantage” by Ash Ali and Hasan Kubba is here to bust that myth. They introduce the MILES framework – think of it as your own personal Avengers team: Money, Intelligence, Location, Education, and Status.

πŸ”‘ Key Takeaways:

  • Find your inner superhero (cape optional).
  • Adopt a “reality growth mindset” – like a bonsai tree, but for your brain.
  • Remember, success isn’t just hard work; it’s like a game of chess with yourself.

🧠 Mastering Self-Control

Finally, self-control. It’s more than just avoiding the last slice of pizza. Understanding it on a neurological level is like getting the cheat codes to your brain. Spoiler: it involves the anterior singulate cortex (sounds fancy, right?), which is like a referee for your inner conflicts.

πŸ”‘ Key Takeaways:

  • Treat self-control like your phone’s battery – recharge regularly!
  • Boost awareness like Sherlock Holmes on a good day.
  • Navigate internal conflicts like a pro negotiator in a flea market.
