+24School is like an all-you-can-eat buffet. While to some people the food is delicious, some only like select foods and others don't find any of it appealing. The issue is that we are force-fed every item on the menu, and those who thrive are those who gorge, not who savor.
+59It is far too easy to attribute the success of others to natural talent. However, natural talent becomes less of a factor the more a craft is practiced, meaning in extremely successful athletes, musicians, and other folks of talent, their skill is founded far more greatly on practice than on talent.

+19People polarize politically by only finding articles credible that support their presumptions and pre-existing opinions. Being too proud of their unflappable opinions, they don't question their judgment of credibility, stockpile evidence in support of themselves, and reject the rest as biased, radical, and untrue. But the true way to approach a sound political opinion is to constantly question one's self and be more humble in one's opinion. One needs to critically question authenticity of sources regardless of what view they present, and actually be ready to change their opinions. Because nobody is like this, political debates and controversy never result in a change in opinion of either side, which is sad, stubborn, childish, and pointless. Until this changes, people will continue to be presumptuous, polarized, and stubborn, which is objectively worse for humanity as a whole.

How can you find out with complete certainty which switch turns on the light, only going opening the door once?
+35The easiest way to make responsible decisions is to make them in advance, like pre-ordering a healthy meal as you reserve a table at a restaurant, making plans to work out with a friend, shopping when very full, and so on. Having a pre-established commitment to success should be a more practiced strategy in society.
+14It's society that gives corporations the liberty to force advertisements into our faces every minute of the day, and we should do far more to regulate it, for it's become too invasive and pestering. We shouldn't have to endure this, amirite? More
