Fighting Ignorance

Turns Out You shouldn't try to change people's mind when they fail to recognize their failures. On the importance of pushing people to the limit.
People who refuse to acknowledge and recognize their failures are doomed because their way of life is unsustainable. You cannot change their mind because radicalization makes people blind to alternatives. What can be done instead : Containment Quarantine them.
Very important, this cannot fail, their illness must not spread. Make it a safe space

Let them develop their ideas.

Fight fire with fire Once they are properly contained, push them to the edge, tell them they are not radical enough.

For example : 


When they say that the moon landing didn't happen, tell them that the moon isn't real.When they tell you that the moon isn't real, tell them that space isn't real.When they tell you that the space isn't real, tell them that time isn't real.etc.

Make it larger and larger, they will get so tired, spend so many ressour…

Finding Missions

On the importance of knowing The Difference between a Mission and a Goal
A mission is something that you want to continue to do.
A goal is something that you want to achieve.

Predicting Outcomes

Turns out amateurs don't become professionals the day they get paid. On the importance of consistency in accuracy.
Professionals are often portrayed as being paid amateurs but my take on this is that getting payed is only a symptom of being a professional.

If getting payed is only a symptom then what causes someone to be a professional?

A professional is capable of consistently predicting the outcomes of his actions.
An amateur is capable of consistently surprising everyone, including himself.
It's not sure whether it will be a good outcome, or whether it will be a bad outcome, one thing is sure it's that it's not clear what the outcome will be.
