    HOT TOPIC How to scale my business and finally profit

    80/20.. i.e focus on the 20% of products that give you 80% of your profits. Rank your products accordingly. Cut out the bad apples, invest on the good ones. Like most companies, you probably have lines that are costing you and or breaking even, those get averaged out by your lines that are...

    Willpower is NOT Limited and believing it is can hold you back.

    Exactly, I couldn't have said it better.

    Willpower is NOT Limited and believing it is can hold you back.

    Publication bias means the effect didn't exist.. It means out of all random averaged out results only ones that supported this view were published. It means all the evidence is null. And that all the theories based on said evidence are now baseless and unfounded. i.e unscientific, hearsay...

    Willpower is NOT Limited and believing it is can hold you back.

    It's pretty much debunked, specially if you look at the sources and for the criticism. You may find some out of date theories based on it, or scientists that aren't following the scientific journals on this subject as closely that still believe it, but other than that it's basically done. As I...

    Willpower is NOT Limited and believing it is can hold you back.

    Again, that's not what I'm arguing against.. Read my last comment..

    Willpower is NOT Limited and believing it is can hold you back.

    That's the part that matters for disproven theories. It's how wikipedia treats them, look at these examples.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phlogiston_theory https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitalism https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luminiferous_aether...

    Willpower is NOT Limited and believing it is can hold you back.

    That is not what I'm arguing Chris. We've done this before.. I'm not saying willpower doesn't exist, I'm saying it doesn't work like a battery or fuel tank, i.e ego depletion.. Look at what I said in the initial comment: What we know about willpower and self control is, if you're hungry...

    Willpower is NOT Limited and believing it is can hold you back.

    Cherry picking parts of the page don't really mean much. Several meta analyses showed it was a publication bias. Scientific consensus is that it was a publication bias. There's literally no other evidence science can give. Baumeister's studies couldn't be replicated. You can check the sources...

    Willpower is NOT Limited and believing it is can hold you back.

    It is the case though. Read the entire criticism part of the wikipedia if you're interested. That's why I didn't quote pieces of it, because you need the entire picture, even then you'd have to read their sources and interpret them properly. Books get outdated that's how things are, whether we...

    Willpower is NOT Limited and believing it is can hold you back.

    Most people have heard or read that self control or willpower is limited, that it decreases throughout the day as you use it resist temptations and get things done. This topic is here to tell you that it doesn't, that information is outdated and damaging to you and other people that believe it...

    HOT TOPIC Dopamine. The missing piece of the success puzzle. (Improve Locus of Control, Motivation, Self-control)

    Great post Chris =D It makes no sense that some doctors aren't taught basic Drug Tolerance theory in college. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drug_tolerance Simple, solves +95% of problems related to long term medication usage, yet somehow it isn't common knowledge among the people that...

    Are you a “deadbeat”?

    Just sign up for automatic debit, your bank will just pay it off automatically for you. That's what I do, no need to waste time going to the bank to pay a credit card bill..

    MJ talks about living off of 3.5% interest from bonds for life. But is he correct?

    Unless you're some weird lazy person, and don't stop working completely on anything else. i.e another business, or investing or real state you can. But if you're that weird kind of lazy person you wouldn't be able to get that much money in the first place, unless you won the lottery or an...

    HOT TOPIC This childhood personality trait influences how much money you'll make as an adult

    That's why I subscribe to these channels, they do it for me, Scishow is better than most, they tend to do more and go the extra mile. The cause in my opinion based on my evolutionary psychology knowledge is probably just 2 different evolutionary strategies. One that uses impulsivity, crime...

    HOT TOPIC This childhood personality trait influences how much money you'll make as an adult

    Dude I'm asking if in this study they accounted for an important factor to determine it's accuracy, and giving an example of one where they didn't to give the question merit. I'm not arguing against the big five. I know about it, I'm also well versed in statistics and p values, statistical...

    HOT TOPIC This childhood personality trait influences how much money you'll make as an adult

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLcFCs7_ZKA It's just wrong, yet pretty much every non fiction book references it for some reason.. You are also taking averages too seriously, some traits certainly do improve income level for average office john, it doesn't mean these traits are as...

    HOT TOPIC This childhood personality trait influences how much money you'll make as an adult

    Did they control for family income level and situation? These studies generally don't so what ends up happening is that they find that kids of well off people with good upbringing tend to make more money later in life. And that's no surprise for anyone. An example of this is that marshmallow...

    Took me three months of daily writing to finish this blog post. 90 Personal Development Books and their reviews

    Strange you seem to finish books you rate as bad, wouldn't it be better to drop or just skim them ? Your system works though so keep it up. I do something similar but instead I do 4 chapters per day. This was based on math specifically the number of average chapters per book / by the number of...

    BOOK The 10x Rule by Grant Cardone - Crazy or Brilliant?

    It depends on the scale of what you're trying to do and how big your goals are. If the business you want to open is small and takes little initial investment, you can bootstrap and learn as you go. If it's something larger with a lot of investment of time and money required you need to be more...
