I put all my knowledge into my articles. I hold nothing back. I am not afraid that it cheapens my brand, that the knowledge will be, suddenly had by everyone, and I’ll have nothing to sell.
I read articles on other sites, and they are quite inane, with a nugget of gold here and there, but even that nugget is rare. And hidden.
When I realized that I was in the marketing and selling business in 1998, 21 years ago, I was in for a long and very slowly rising learning curve.
I bought courses, in-person, online, and most courses, if I could glean a nugget, I was lucky. Most courses I didn’t glean any knowledge. Why? Am I stupid? No. What was wrong with me that I spent tens of thousands of dollars and didn’t get the results I paid for?
But it’s so “normal” to be a small thinker, that many people think they are big thinkers because they have big pie-in-the-sky desires.
What is a pie-in-the-sky desire? It is an end goal to which there is no ladder and there is no intention to build one.
One of the things I measure in the Starting Point Measurements is the size of your desire vs. the size of your ambition.
People with sky high desire entertain pie in the sky goals.
The easiest “test” to find out is to ask them to do the skill-finder process from the book “What Color is Your Parachute” that has been published, I guess, for 50 years? OK… I just checked, for 49 years.
That means you can find used copies of the book: that section hasn’t changed much… maybe a little with the introduction of computers.
How does the skill test go?
In any project your actions belie the underlying skills, the ability to do some
I am noticing that longevity is attracting a lot of “clicks” on Youtube.
As I was looking for pictures, I found another dude, British, long beard… Aubrey de Grey… who approaches aging more the way we do here… so I’ll show his TED talk he gave in my favorite city, Budapest, Hungary, where I was born.
He looks at aging as a side effect of living, and his approach to longevity is to work with the side effects, and one by one beat them.
It’s going to take a lot of medication, and hoopla… before this can even be working on humans… but the idea is sound, so here is his TED talk. (Truth value: 20%)
I have students who fake thankfulness, gratitude… you can hear it. And occasionally they confess.
To me, to hear the fakeness, it indicates their wretchedness.
They think that gratitude, appreciation is social grease… and you give it to look good, to fit in, to obey some social rule, or because the other needs it.
Their knowledge about how reality works is completely missing…
Gratitude, what you are getting, all live in language… have no existence in reality. Without expressing gratitude you got nothing… and of course nothing to be grateful for.
But if you get nothing, ever, then you are wretched. You got nothing… and no joy, no being moved,no nice feelings, no connection with the other… you are an empty shell waiting to be filled.

I started this article 3 years ago, but the topic is as fresh as a daisy… Adrenal Fatigue and its nasty side effects.
I just measured a woman’s Starting Point Measurements, and suggested that she gets her Health Measures… so she can start behaving in a way that builds her up, instead of behaving in a way, living in a way, that destroys her.
She is a writer of books… and she has a family, sky high desire, no, maybe even higher.
When I clicked “send” on the email with the Starting point measurements, Rob Brezsny’s horoscope email popped up…
I am observing, I am witnessing the conversation in my discussion group. Great market research! lol. I find out what people don’t know. What people don’t understand.
One of the differences between animals and humans is humans’ arrogance.
When you watch animals, the parents, the elders, teach the young ones all that is teachable. Otherwise their species would die out: there is a lot to know to be safe, to live long enough to create offspring themselves and contribute to the survival of their species.
Humans are attempting to do the same, but never tell their offspring, never told you, that the purpose of education is to know what the generations before yours discovered for themselves, so you can stand on their shoulders and not have to discover all that, again, the hard way.

I honestly believe it is better to know nothing than to know what ain’t so
Key principles and processes that you misunderstand about your body and health
I think I have to teach a little biology to correct the misconceptions, misinformation, ignorance, and to add the accurate meaning of words… words you think you understand and you don’t.
If your accurate vocabulary isn’t in the many thousands range in your Starting Point Measurements, consider that you don’t understand clearly and accurately about 90% or more of the words that are needed for your life, your work, your health, your relationships with others, with Life, with Source.
So this little article is to remedy that issue in the area of eating… Biology.
1. What are carbs? What organ is crucial to digesting carbs? What happens if you eat too much of it?
2. What are proteins? What organ is crucial to digesting c
I have been reading articles, studies, even books to get more effective at teaching you. Yesterday I learned some new words for my accurate vocabulary:
intellectual virtues/intellectual vices
character virtues/character vices
physical virtues/physical vices
In my field… self-evolution, self-improvement, self-growth, one of the things I am seeing makes my stomach turn: a widespread phenomenon of being a Milque Toast… i.e. squeamish, i.e. looking only at the bright side of things.
Either everybody counts or nobody counts… this is the principle that makes Michael Connelly’s books so dear to me. Obviously, to me, that labels me as a commie, a Democrat, a lefty… but I really don’t care… It’s your issue, not mine. My job is to be true to my principles.
I like crime novels. Most of them are clean and most of them go into the details that allow me to be forced to ride on the surface, to turn the page too eagerly, but stay on the page I am on: savoring it. Rare to find books like that.
No FOMO, I am where I am supposed to be. No desire to be anywhere else, doing anything other than what I am doing.
