Advice 01: Nothing is easy
Even though I recommend everyone to implement the recommendations in this Notion page and to adapt the personality traits, it will never be easy. Depending on how we define our goals, it will never be easy to be successful, famous, or popular. It will never be free. If you want to go in that direction, you must always be ready to pay the price. Depending on the specific goal, it may be a lot of overtime, long journeys, and nightmares. It is essential to persevere, so remember: Today is very tough, tomorrow is tougher, the day after tomorrow is beautiful, but most people die tomorrow evening (Jack Ma). And: Your birth certificate does not say, that life is easy.

Brené with Dr. Edith Eger on Recognizing the Choices and Gifts in Our Lives | Brené Brown
This week, I'm talking to clinical psychologist and author Dr. Edith Eger about her books, The Choice and The Gift. Dr. Eger is a Holocaust survivor who has dedicated her career to helping us understand trauma, anger, resilience, and the power of choosing how we see ourselves and how we resist the labels that people put on us.
Advice 02: Daydreaming
We all come to a point where we sometimes get stuck. We often lack the creativity to think of new solutions. I believe it's hard to be creative when you have 5 deadlines a day and you're under constant stress. So when you're at that point, take 3 hours. No obligations, no deadlines, no compulsion to be productive. Take your time, run around and daydream. The most famous writers are most creative when they move. In doing so, you will get the work done without even trying hard: You can not schedule creativity, you can not force it. [...] Let it be and let it flow naturally (Morgan Housel).

Advice 03: Boreout
Everyone is talking about burnout and it is also one of the most important mental illnesses at work. However, the opposite is addressed far too less: Boreout. I believe most people get bored at work at some point. Either because we are overqualified or because we think the work is nonsensical. If something like this happens to you, remember: Make a daily balance sheet of your activities. Often such a feeling can come from distorted perceptions. If you can find free hours in your day, that's great - use them actively. Let your creativity run free and try to see things from a different perspective.
Langeweile im Job: Was tun, wenn es nichts zu tun gibt?
Gähnende Langeweile, Monotonie der Arbeit, permanente Unterforderung und sinnloser Dienst nach Vorschrift. Und dies Tag für Tag. Was 2007 nach Erscheinen des Buches Diagnose Boreout noch als absoluter Tabubruch tituliert wurde, ist heute scheinbar kein Aufsehen erregendes Thema mehr. Burn- und auch Bore-out haben in den letzten Jahren quer durch alle Medien Aufmerksamkeit erfahren.
Advice 04: Uncertainty, Restlessness, and Hard Work
Uncertainty, restlessness, and hard work is, in my opinion, some of the most popular feelings of our generation and are partially intensified by COVID19. If you don't know what's coming, your habits will ground you. If everything gets too much for you, practice one minute of mindfulness. When you feel restless, do a 1-minute workout. And always remember: "If you want to look good in front of thousands, you have to outwork thousands in front of nobody." But remember: Hard work comes from continuing after one has failed. Elizabeth Gilbert got a rejection letter after one another before she finally got recognition for her work "Eat, Pray, Love": I loved writing more than I hated failing at writing, which is to say, that I loved writing more than I loved my ego.
Elizabeth Gilbert: Success, failure and the drive to keep creating
Elizabeth Gilbert was once an "unpublished diner waitress," devastated by rejection letters. And yet, in the wake of the success of 'Eat, Pray, Love,' she found herself identifying strongly with her former self. With beautiful insight, Gilbert reflects on why success can be as disorienting as failure and offers a simple -- though hard -- way to carry on, regardless of outcomes.
Advice 05: Focus
Due to the possibilities that are offered to us today, it is easy to lose focus. Everyone will come to such a point and I've personally been there several times. If a magician steals your watch, he will put pressure on a different part of your body to confuse you. The trick is to stay focused on what is important. Remember the following tips: "Where you spend your attention is where you spend your life." And please: “Stop worrying about how long it will take and get started. Time will pass either way." Because: "Next year, you’ll wish you had started today."

The the ages of the internet, we often look for words of wisdom from people we admire. We scour through the quotes and teachings of our favorite gurus or celebrities, trying to achieve the lives they have, or just simply inspired by what they've accomplished.
Psychology of Human Misjudgment (Transcript) by Charlie Munger
The Psychology of Human Misjudgment is considered the magnum opus on why we behave the way we do. *** In the run-up to publishing Poor Charlies Almanack , Charlie Munger remarked that "The Psychology of Human Misjudgment" could use "a little revising" to bring it in line with his most current views on the subject.
Advice 06: Child prodigies
Let's face it, we all wish to be a child prodigy. Someone who learns everything in a second and has no trouble outsmarting anyone at any time. Of course, this is an exaggeration, but I would like to tell you something: It is good if you are no child prodigy! Even when they perform in Carnegie Hall, win competitions like "Jugend forscht" or become chess masters - the tragic truth is: practice makes perfect, but creates nothing new. So embrace that you are no prodigy - that you can think different.
