"You should realize that yes, experts will sometimes lie to you. But (with a few exceptions) they usually don’t do this out of lack of concern for your own welfare. Instead, they do it out of lack of regard for your truth-handling abilities. You’re probably not being punked; you’re being babied. So if and when you go fact-checking the experts’ recommendations, remember that they probably do have their assessment of your own best interests in mind. Think of them as an overprotective parent, not as an enemy."
Too often we forget about the victims of geo political wars and sanctions: the people.
Sanctions if used only and selected against evil dictators and their friends seem to be a good balance. However, sanctions against entire countries affect the people more than their leaders and therefore to more harm than good. Syrica, Iran, Venezuale are some examples.
I think we need to openly discuss the agendas behind geo political wars and sanctions to avoid them and move more towards a primarily pacifistic world.
One of the most renowned medical journals "The Lancet" criticizes the PCR test. The test is very sensitive, but that is exactly the problem. 50-75% of those tested positive are not infectious because too small virus fragments are detected without any pathogenicity.
I read about the Iyy Lee method some time ago, I needed a short reminder to plan the next day the evening before and prioritize properly. Recommend "The Ivy Leed Method" to everyone you probably don't need nothing else to be productive besides this technique.
Absolute must read for everyone who is interested in surveillance, encrypted communication, and obviously for everyone deleting WhatsApp and Facebook in favor of Signal. I’m a user of Telegram since 2014 and I understand and trust What Durov is doing. Please do me a favor and invite your friends to Telegram NOT Signal. Feel free to send me a message on Telegram @mariusschober or follow me @schobers. The world needs Telegram and people like Pavel Durov more than ever before.
As a European I'd like seeing Miami gain in significance in technology. It's only a 10h non-stop flight from many major European cities like London, Amsterdam, Düsseldorf and I really like Miami as a city.
Maybe other mayors of Southern EU cities like Malaga, Palma, Nice, Malta, or Iraklion must look at Francis Suarez and create a similar movement here!
Konservativer Führungsstil wird in den kommenden Jahren wichtiger denn je, das ganze Duzen und das "Feel Well" Political Correctness wird einige Firmen in den Untergang zwingen, dafür schätze ich Herrn Grupp.
Thought: One of the BEST articles on what a CEO should actually be doing. Not working in the business but on the business.
I'm just getting started but I already defined my tasks as a future CEO to every board member and future investor: (1) securing funding, (2) getting the deal-flow, (3) recruiting the best talent, (4) setting an exciting vision.
Takeaway: Build your own mindful productivity system which works for you - not others
Thought: Yes. I understand. There is a lot of advice out there which may be labeled as productivity porn. And I agree, Everyone should have his own schedule, his own rituals and habits. Just copying other persons productivity tips and habits won't necessarily make you productive.
I am right now in the experimentation phase where I try and copy many different elements of role models to see how they impact my productivity. In the end I'll end up with my own mindful productivity rules - which I can then stick to until the rest of my life.
Takeaway: Understand the other side's arguments better than they do, by doing so correct your bad ideas to come closer to reality.
Thought: I started a while ago to not have public opinions on topics I don't truly understand. But obviously, all of us have our own point of views, tendencies and values we assume to be true. I will take this advice and look and understand into the other sides arguments more intensely in the future.
"You should trade being short-term low-status for being long-term high-status, which most people seem unwilling to do. A common way this happens is by eventually being right about an important but deeply non-consensus bet."
All successful founders with net worth in the billions are ruthless - that's what politicians are referring to. But without determination and a high ruthlessness-factor you cannot build successful and impactful businesses. So in the end it all comes down to political correctness and manipulating media narratives which shine negative lights on billionaires.
What a stupid experiment on humans, not sufficiently tested, no liability of pharma nor government. Every single person in politics and pharma should be held liable for all actions in this vaccination experiment (financially and custodial).
