2021 and 2022 – The year(s) of starting over

I named 2021 the year of starting over. It’s an idea I borrowed from entrepreneur Patrick Bet-David. In one of his YouTube videos, I don’t remember which one, Patrick talked about naming each year for something significant you wanted to accomplish in it. In 2021, I wanted to stop being so disorganized, so confused about […]

Flawed heroes – good intent and reason – Ba4

True courage is not the brutal force of vulgar heroes, but the firm resolve of virtue and reason. Those are the words of Alfred North Whitehead, British philosopher and mathematician born in 1861. I love those words but, as a covert sinner, I feel intimidated by the word virtue. So I’ll do what any non-virtuous […]

Tips on all-out mental effort – Ba3

Problem solvers are just one of the many breeds of athletes. I can’t say that they use their minds more than most athletes (because that’s not true many times), but they use their bodies less (most of the time.)

A Force for Good – book review – Ba1

A Force for Good is a book that changed my life. I’ve always been someone who wanted to make a difference in the world. I don’t mean to say that in a self-complimentary way. I’ve come to realize that my need to make a difference is actually a sign a narcissism (aka it’s important for […]

Journey of a self-thought person – Ba0

This is the first video for my YouTube channel. In it I try to explain why I started my channel (hint: because I wanted to do my part in being a force for good.) 🙂 When I was brainstorming what kind of “style” to have for my thumbnails, channel art, and so on, I considered […]

There’s an elephant in the room – Now what?

I noticed recently that even people I admire very much for their well-reasoned, logical positivity have started to talk more about worrisome topics like global crisis, worldwide conflict, and so on. These are thick skinned, good hearted, smart people who have a hands-on approach to any new challenge take full responsibility for their actions don’t […]
