In praise of (semi) long-term thinking:[Read more…] about Think 30 Years Ahead
Don’t wait for new stuff to come out, and you wait until you buy it. No. You build it and make it! Create the future. Create what you desire to see manifested in the world.
For example, the point ain’t waiting for the new Apple product, Google product, or Tesla product to come out for you to lust over and you desire to buy it. The point is for you to stop, and think and say:
I will build the next Apple (I’m the next Steve Jobs). I will build my own car (start from scratch, a skeleton body and build up the car). I will design and create my own phone (open source, root an Android phone?
Thus the thought:

Either take all the tools (already existing in your disposal, no rumor mill stuff) and maximize it and yourself, or just go out and create what you desire to see manifested in the world.

Everyday, strive to improve (at least) .5%, or 1%, or whatever percentage. Even a tiny tiny tiny improvement everyday, compounded over a year is insane gains!

Self confidence that goes deep into your core.
Living biological organisms desire to exhibit, exert, and augment their power.
Upon thinking deeply — it isn’t anxiety, fear, or even fear of pain and death which holds us back. It is morality and ethics — notions of “guilt”, “shame”, and punishment. If you want to fly higher, you must become amoral.[Read more…] about Morality and Ethics is the Snare
Social science is not a critical and hard science like math or physics, but I see it more as an approach and aesthetic.

Photography not just for artistic reasons, but also for mental and physiological reasons:[Read more…] about Photography for Mental and Physiological Health
Photography and physical fitness, and artistic fitness are inter-twined. For example, a photographer who is very physically fit, buff, swole, trained, and low boy fat percentage will have more energy, motivation, inspiration, and physiological power to actually go out and make new photos.
Thus, I propose:

‘Photography Fitness’ as a new artistic, aesthetic, physiological, and pragmatic approach to discovering more “inspiration” and “motivation” to photography.
I say this:
Put no faith in any living person. Why? Not all of their skeletons have been pulled out (yet).
For example, we saw Russell Simmons as a hero. Then we discover he was probably a rapist or sexual predator. Same goes with all those men implicated in the #metoo movement. Harvey Weinstein was seen as a good guy, but once the truth leaked, we found out who he really was. Same goes for Jeffrey Epstein (when he was still alive). Even lately I’ve been reading more about the deplorable acts of Bill Clinton and Hillary. Even bad stuff about Obama. Which means:
Trust no person until (after) they die.
Because once people die, then you often get to uncover their hidden self, or “behind the scenes” self, and then you can make a better judgement of who they truly were as a person. This is why we can study and generate Steve Jobs (all his skeletons are out of the closet), yet we still cannot gain a deeper understanding of JAY Z, KANYE, ELON MUSK, JEFF BEZOS, BILL GATES, etc.[Read more…] about Trust No Living Person
