People come into your life for a reason

Music: Native Spirit by Tomiko

Reason, Season, or Lifetime

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you figure out which one it is,
you will know what to do for each person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON,
it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty;
to provide you with guidance and support;
to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually.
They may seem like a godsend, and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be.

Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time,
this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON,
because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it. It is real. But only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons;
things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person,
and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Intrinsic Value

Intrinsic value is not a target but more like a range depending on the following factors :

1. Assets

2. Cash

3. Dividends

4. Earnings

5. Prospects

Charlie Munger

Easiest way to get what you want is to deliver what you want. Getting deserved trust. Deliver what you want to buy.

There's no love that so right as admiration based love. Don't be in a diseased based love as in Somerset Maugham's Of Human Bondage.

Aquisition of wisdom is a duty. You must be a learning machine. Go to bed wiser than in the morning.

Alfred North Whitehead referred to rapid growth in civilisation due to invention. Only when you learn the method of learning can you progress. Half the time Warren Buffet spends reading and the other half talking with very talented individuals whom he trusts.

Values like the pathologist on bone tumour who took a sabbatical to work on his book 17 hours a day for a year to publish his 2000 copies of his book in all the cancer centres in the world.

Multi-disciplinary approach

Learn all the big ideas in all the big disciplines. Went through life practising this multi disciplinary approach, but keep your light under your bushel so that you don't cause offence to those who does know a lot but less than you. Cicero is famous for saying that the man who doesn't know what happened before he was born, is foolish. In addition to history, you need to know the big ideas in the other disciplines, but learn them in a way so that they are in your mental lattice and you are constantly using them. If you don't then you will live in the middle ranks or shadows.

Inversion will help you solve problems. What will really fail in life. Sloth and unreliability. Avoid sloth and unreliability. If you are unreliable it doesn't matter what your virtues are. Doing what you are faithfully engaged to do should be a part of your conduct.

Self pity is a disastrous mode of thought. This can drift into paranoia.

You should appeal to individual interest. Perverse incentives (quota of billable hours per year) or perverse associations ( working under people you do not admire) should be avoided.

Objectivity maintenance . Checklist routines avoid a lot of errors.

Non egality. John Wooden said to the bottom five that if you don't get to play , you spar. The top seven got to play and they did the more learning. The game of life is getting a lot of practice into the hands of those who tend to be learning machine. Get the power into the right people.

Max Planck went around Germany giving talks on Quantum mechanics. His chauffeur travelled with him and asked Planck if he could deliver the lecture this time ( he had memorised it).

The chauffeur of Max Planck gave the lecture.

'I am surprised that in an advanced city like Munich can ask such an elementary question. I will let my chauffeur answer that question.'

Planck knowledge - the person who does know it, they have paid the dues.

Chauffeur knowledge , learnt to prattle the talk. 'I have described all the politicians in the USA.'

Job is to to get the responsibilty into the hands of the Planck knowledge.

Intense interest in the subject is indispensable.

Have a lot of ass a do it. A two partnership rule:

Whenever we are behind in our committments to other people we will work 14 hours a day until we catch up.

Life will have horrible blows but it doesn't matter. The attitude of Epicetus was :

Every mischance in life was an opportunity to behave well., learn something and utilise the terrible blow and not to submit to self pity. Epicetus.

The thoughts of others..poem by Houseman. Like Houseman went through life anticipating troubles.

A seamless web of deserved trust

Proof is in the Proceeds

Proof is not in the pudding but in the proceeds. Donald Van de Mark explains.

Reality recognition tips include don't make snap judgements, resist categorisation ( root of -isms eg racism), pay attention to the pollster ie if a third person calls you an ass you are an ass. Argue using data, don't argue with the date .Always do your own analysis, Wall street has its own motivation, seek reality checks from those you admire.

Carl Jung on Death

Carl Gustav Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist, influential thinker, and founder of analytical psychology. Here he speaks about Death and the Human Psyche.

The Black Swan

Who wants to live in a world of 90% probability

"Imagine a speck of dust next to a planet a billion times the size of earth. The speck of dust represents the odds in favour of your being born; the huge planet would be the odds against it. So stop sweating the small stuff. Don't be like the ingrate who got a castle as a present and worried about the mildew in the bathroom. Stop looking the gift horse in the mouth - remember you are a Black Swan.

Skills is essential ( from zero to upper middle class) but to go to billionaire , luck is essential to add to the skills.

Before the discovery of Australia swans were thought to be white. You cannot rule black swan because you haven't seen it.

His black swan is an event, the impact of the highly improbable. Perpectively unpredictable and retrospectively predictable.

The computer is a black swan, the rise of religion is a black swan, Harry Potter is a black swan

Illusion of control

Mother nature doesn't like leverage, mother nature doesn't like 'too big to fail'. Mother nature doesn't like debt.Debts versus spare parts. We all have two lungs, if economists had thier way it would be optimum allocation and we will have one lung. Mother nature doesn't like the ricardo concept.

Whats in a name?

Coca cola or Pepsi?

Blackberry or Palm?

Alliteration and rhyming is the key according to Eben Pagan.

The importance of the phonological loop as it bounces around for longer than the average couple of seconds and is addictive like a song that you cant get out of your mind.
