The Cancer Corollary as described in Unscripted.


When you have a serious problem that needs a solution ... focus and perspective is no longer a problem.

When you have the cure to cancer, no one is going to care that you want to own a Ferrari.

Thank you for that inspiring Video MJ!

Great concept of the Cancer Corollary.
It relay gets you thinking if you imagine that you would have only another year to life.
If more people would hear about this concept, then definitely more people would hit the fastlane!

This Video got me that fired up that I just ordered UNSCRIPED, yeah.

Ha Ha, well thanks. It's really easy to look that great when you're just an animated avatar! ;-)

I opened the video, only to get pleasantly shocked by the great quality of the animation.

'No F*cking way this stuff looks so sweet.' I said to myself.

Great work, MJ!

Did you hire it out, or pay for the extra animation packages? It feels like a Powtoon kind of work, with paid extensions from the free cartoons they provide you with in the beginning.

Animating Semmelwashing and podium popping would also do extremely well. And CENTS videos with moving, talking people can be a sweet 'remastered' version, as opposed to the concepts of 'dynamic, shifting of still pictures' and 'automatic marker drawing all the pictures out'.

On the Cancer Corollary, before I learned of it, I couldn't really see why I could win at business. I used to falsely think that business was a dog-eat-dog world, with guns blazing and murderous swords clashing. Now I understand that the desperation of NEEDS that result from an imperfect world is really why entrepreneurship is essentially a value game. 'From chaos comes order', as they used to say.

Pretty sure, @IlyaP created the animation.

It all makes sense when you are open-minded. If people could "unlock" their mind, the world would be a much better place.

Could you help me understand what the word semmelwashing means? I am Brazilian and I could not translate that word into my language, could you tell me more clearly what it means?

Oh, it's in the UNSCRIPTED book.

But I'll tell you a bit here.

There was a doctor named Ignaz Semmelweis who claimed that terrible illnesses could be passed around by germs. He proposed that everyone wash their hands, with chlorinated lime solutions (the antiseptic of that day) to kill the germs and disinfect their hands.

But it was very long time ago, so there wasn't any microscopes around to prove bacteria or germs existed. So everyone thought he had gone mad, and basically, poor Semmelweis ended up in an asylum. Died there at probably at the hands of his guards.

Later, his theories were vindicated and proven by Louis Pasteur, and then he got famous and praised. Even got a hospital named after him.

Likewise, in entrepreneurship, whenever we start a new business, create a new product or solution, we can expect to have a lot of unbelievers who don't believe in our work so much that they want it destroyed or discarded, to be forgotten, just as what happened to Dr Semmelweis. They can be friends, family and elders.

They can throw hateful comments on social media, ignore us for dinner invites, kick us out of the house or do anything else nasty. It's never easy to put up with all of the 'semmelwashing', but that's life.

However, if Semmelweis didn't push on with his theories, perhaps the practice of washing hands to kill germs before medical treatments would coming WAAY later, with more lives lost. The same goes with our products. Why delay help to those who need it?

Thank you very much ZF Lee, for clarification, I asked why I am in this chapter, and I am translating and reading at the same time. I'm here on my blog. I have read the first book of MJ to two years and this USCRIPTED, undoubtedly is a better version of the first. Thank you for your time. Thank you for your time. Thank you for your time.
