On this best of the week episode, we’re talking about love and why its closest analogy may be hypnotism, why you can’t really trust someone who is in love, and why you need to treat your relationships and love life like you have a short amount of time left to live: Would you really be with this person if you only had a few months left to live?
We also dig into the topic of procrastination, and why people fall into the habit: The reality is that procrastination almost always stems from an incorrect understanding of the pain to reward ratio. If you understood exactly how worth it the pain was for the reward, or goal, you are seeking, you would not struggle so much with procrastination. Therefore, you must do whatever it takes to have that goal always in front of you, in mind, very tangible and very specific, to beat procrastination.
Plus, we talk about why regulations often lead to a worsening of the problem they were supposed to fix, and why mother nature will always laugh last.
