Here are this week's chosen learning points:
Success: The two obstacles to success are ego and blind spots. We need insightful people that offer different perspectives to cover our blind spots. To attract those people, we need to drop our ego. (Source)
Unconscious Mind: To leverage your unconscious mind, ask yourself a hard question at the end of the work day. Then don't consciously think about it. The next day, revisit that question multiple times and jot down potential solutions. You'll reach a break-through much quicker than always consciously thinking about the question. (Source).
Happiness Proverb: Joyful people say, "I'll help you!" Annoyed people say "You help me." -Chinese Proverb
Here are this week's recommended actions:
Identify the people in your life who offer you different and insightful perspectives. Have a conversation with them about a problem that's been on your mind.
Try leveraging your unconscious mind for a hard question.
Ask someone how you can help them.
