    Dr. Jordan B Peterson - Professor and clinical psychologist

    Jordan is like a breath of fresh air. Being stifled by much of the politically correct debate, certain groups have put a gun to the head of those who wish to oppose the status quo. Having a super-smart advocate like Mr Peterson has unleashed the pent up frustrations of people worldwide. No...

    Decorating

    Gotcha, like a cloud of vapour. I've spent all week now decorating my room. Made some good progress but will be glad when its over. I needed more paint than I anticipated too. Cost me about £150 including tools, paint etc.

    Decorating

    I've run out of primer. Off to the shops...! I take it the paint sprayer gives off lots of fumes?

    Diaminds - a new multidimensional perspective on reality

    I think that works Doc. Your net has both large and small holes, although technically the small holes will also catch the large fish! But essentially, you are casting your net based on magnitude.

    Diaminds - a new multidimensional perspective on reality

    I have started to read a book by some smart dudes called Mihnea C. Moldoveanu and Roger Martin. The full book title is... Diaminds: Decoding the Mental Habits of Successful Thinkers https://www.amazon.com/Diaminds-Decoding-Mental-Successful-Thinkers/dp/1487520522 It is a relatively obscure...

    Decorating

    I have started decorating my office this week. What I did not anticipate is how physically exhausting it all is! Holding the paint roller is giving my forearms a real workout! But all the standing, awkward angles etc. It is made more tricky because I have a sloping wall and little room in which...

    The Six Pack Challenge - accountability thread

    Down to 13st 1.3lbs!! That is 16.7lbs lost. My app says I will be 13st in 6 days. I will celebrate with a great takeaway pizza from Tunbridge Wells, or get this fab cake from there. Then back to the diet again! Can't remember if I said, but I am wearing 0.5kg (1lb) ankle weights when I go on my...

    In that case, why discriminate against the smart when you say, "don't deserve 1st world standards of living if you are not smart?" It affects both the smart and the not-so-smart, but you are favouring the not-so-smart over the third-world smart individual. Why isn't your argument, "Remove the...

    Dr. Jordan B Peterson - Professor and clinical psychologist

    Let me try angle #2. :p If you don't do the swap, aren't we simply saying that if you are smart (in the third world country), you don't deserve to have a first world standard of life? [Clue: this is a zero sum game.]

    Dr. Jordan B Peterson - Professor and clinical psychologist

    Interesting reasoning Bee. You could then say because you aren't smart, you don't deserve to have the same income as someone who is smart. Next step, communism! Or if you like, you could say because you are not smart enough to get a medical degree, we are being exclusionary to those...

    My rebirth

    Interesting points Doc. Regarding the Vits, I am using the term loosely. Instead, I am talking about supplements, some of which are Vits. My stack includes: - Pterostilbene - Tru Niagen - L-Carnosine - Astaxanthin - Vit D3 - Curcumin - Fish oil The Vit D3...you cannot get enough through a...

    My rebirth

    Thought I would update this thread after completing a journal post about identity change. I've been watching some YouTube videos about it. I think it is interesting to see where I was, where I am now, and where I will be soon. I think there is quite some lag in perception between who you were...

    Decisions, decisions

    I am confident you will iterate your way to a decent routine. Little improvements will get you there. Having your own front door will make a huge difference, I am sure. Nothing like being master of your own environment - something I can only dream of!

    The Six Pack Challenge - accountability thread

    Hit a significant milestone today. I am now 13st 2.8bs, with a bit of help from a stomach bug this week. That means I have lost one stone (14lbs). That represents half way towards my ultimate goal of 12st 4lbs. However, I am not that far off 13st which was my initial goal. Only a few pounds to...

    Managing Disorder in your Life

    Uncle, I think the term they use is "Mindfulness." Lots of therapy is based around that nowadays.

    Managing Disorder in your Life

    This reminds me of the basic tenant of Buddhism: Life is suffering. [and it is a consequence of human existence.] They refer to it as Dukkha.

    Managing Disorder in your Life

    That is why I suggest you start small, with few items on it. Life gets in the way. If you just do not have time to do stuff during certain times, block them out in grey beforehand. If you look at my grid, you can see that at the weekend, there are some things that I do not do. You could adopt...
