    Nietzsche famously said, “What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.” It sounds clever, but it’s a loser philosophy. I don’t want my failures to simply make me stronger,* which I interpret as making me better able to survive future challenges. Becoming stronger is obviously a good thing, but it’s only barely optimistic. I do want my failures to make me stronger, of course, but I also want to become smarter, more talented, better networked, healthier, and more energized. If I find a cow turd on my front steps, I’m not satisfied knowing that I’ll be mentally prepared to find some future cow turd. I want to shovel that turd onto my garden and hope the cow returns every week so I never have to buy fertilizer again.* Failure is a resource that can be managed.

    All I needed to do was overprice myself and see what happened.

    We fake it until it becomes real.
    Ivan Kuznetsovhar citeretfor 5 måneder siden
    Free yourself from the shackles of an oppressive reality. What’s real to you is what you imagine and what you feel. If you manage your illusions wisely, you might get what you want, but you won’t necessarily understand why it worked.

    If your life doesn’t provide you with plenty of happy thoughts to draw upon, try daydreaming of wonderful things in your future.

    If you can’t tell whether a simple plan or a complicated one will be the best, choose the simple one.

    I prefer simplicity whenever I’m choosing a system to use.

    If the task is something you can do all by yourself, or with a partner who is on your wavelength, optimizing might be a better path if you can control most variables in the situation.

    he Healthy Eating Summary

    The Simple, No-Willpower Diet System
    Pay attention to your energy level after eating certain foods. Find your pattern.
    Remove unhealthy, energy-draining food from your home.
    Stock up on convenient healthy food (e.g., apples, nuts, bananas) and let laziness be your copilot in eating right.
    Stop eating foods that create feelings of addiction: white rice, white potatoes, desserts, white bread, fried foods.
    Eat as much healthy food as you want, whenever you want.
    Get enough sleep, because tiredness creates the illusion of hunger.
    If your hunger is caused by tiredness, try healthy foods with fat, such as nuts, avocados, protein bars, and cheese, to suppress the hungry feeling.
    If you’re eating for social reasons only, choose the healthiest options with low calories.
    Learn how to season your healthy-yet-bland foods.

    The real kicker was his brilliant plan to live among rich people until he could become one by association.

    The needle was full of clear fluid. “I guess it was just one of those things,” he said. “Let me get the rest of it.”
    I left the hospital a few minutes later with a tiny bandage and a new outlook on life. Food tasted better for weeks. Annoying people were no longer annoying. Trees were fuzzy balls of wonder. Cold air was refreshing instead of painful.

    There was no defined mechanism to explain how proximity to rich people would make him successful. The best he could offer was his observation that life had patterns and this was one of them: You become like the people around you.

    To change yourself, part of the solution might involve spending more time with the people who represent the change you seek.
