I see it more as something that‘s really helpful to have in your repertoire of skills and that can enhance your reading experience.
I see it as something you can „turn on“ when you want to get through something quicker or for boring stuff, and turn it „off“ when you don‘t want to...
There are some things that pretty much all of us on here have in common.
One of those is, that we all read a lot.
Though of course there are more ways of learning something new, reading remains at the top with listening, watching and others.
But for many, reading is quite an (mentally)...
Awesome new metric, thanks for implementing it (and so fast). I‘m sure this will help a lot to keep the noise at bay and see more quality posts :)
Just discovered, that on mobile you can see it when you‘re in landscape mode (at least on the iPhone, don‘t know how it‘s on Android).
Man, this reminded me of the old REP $ system. Made it really clear who adds value to the forum.
But yeah, the post-like ratio is something I always look at when reading something from a name I don‘t know yet.
Yes, it does not change anything that happened. And knowing alone won‘t change much either.
I’m a big fan of illuminating the why and its connections to the present.
Without understanding the why it‘s like there are strings attached to you that lead into the dark. Strings that influence a lot...
I agree to some extent. I think for many people this is true.
Others, though, some of them who may have felt a kind of hole inside of them for most of their life, could do as much exercise and eat as clean and would still feel empty once the good chemicals from exercising wane off.
Absolutely agree with this.
In his book Psychocybernetics (though quite old and some parts may be outdated by now) Maxwell Maltz talks a lot about the self-image.
He writes about his experience of being a plastic surgeon and sometimes experiencing drastic changes in personality in his patients...
I think one reason, why there seems to be a trend towards "being happy with mediocrity" ist the boom of entrepreneurship over the last 5-10 years or so.
I remember, when I read TMF and came on here, most people didn't give a crap about entrepreneurship. Sure there have always been some that...
What you describe when you write about being rich means you don‘t have much time is actually a better description of a Slowlane „success“ rather than a Fastlane success.
Guess who needs to work 40+ hours a week and doesn‘t have much time for what they truly enjoy? People going the career path...
What you say is to some extent similar to the philosophy of Alfred Adler. I don't know if you're familiar with him or his work.
I still like the idea of understanding the why, in order to treat the what.
So, let's use your example of the drunk person. Yes, they have not many reasons for high...
Haven't heard of that theory yet, but it sounds interesting! Will look into it. Thanks!
Edit to add:
A quick Google search brought me to this article:
Brain Energy: The Metabolic Theory of Mental Illness by Christopher M Palmer M.D.
as well as the book of the same name (Brain Energy). Will take...
Rumination – what if we could clear the fog in our minds?
There are moments in life when our mind is like a bright blue sky. When there are no dark clouds far and wide that could push in front of the sun and the sun’s rays warm us from within.
Moments when the sun shines in our head.
Haven't updated this thread in a looong time.
There have been several times when I started to write a new post in here. Especially the one on depression, that I wanted to write for quite some time. But I didn't.
A lot of my thinking on these topics changed since writing the first post. Even...
Following along as I‘m also currently working on a content website. Since I started to also do drawings for the articles I write, shit‘s taking me really long. Let‘s see if there‘s a way to get faster at drawing, as the writing itself is not the problem
TikTok did not destroy the attention span of the youth, it simply knows how to use it to their advantage. And while we are on it, so does Instagram and YouTube, so what‘s the big deal?
If you don’t like that, don‘t use it. If someone else likes to use it, let them use it.
The only thing that...
I don't know about that testing site, but 3.27s is not fast. You should aim for at least below 2s, the lower than that, the better.
What I found to be most effective is a combination of using WP Rocket, ShortPixel for images (but other image enhancers will probably do as well), looking into...
@MTF I can understand both sides in here. Those who do wake up excited a lot of the times, and those who don‘t, like you.
I‘ve been to both sides. I had long times in my life where a good mood was my default. And it didn‘t matter how much money I had. But I also had a lot of times when I felt...
