Quick Thoughts

Here are some quick thoughts

… on political bias:

“Don’t get carried away by a narrative of any one topic you believe in.

If you have a belief in something and get overly emotional about that, you would typically seek affirmation on you being right. You follow media channels that support your direction of belief.

But what you should be doing instead is to find affirmation that you are being wrong.

If you are not successful doing so, then you are right.”

… on kindness and disagreement:

“Always remember that to argue, and win, is to break down the reality of the person you are arguing against. It is painful to lose your reality, so be kind, even if you are right.”

Haruki Murakami (Japanese writer)

… on creating value:

Before you ask for readers, write the article you wish you could read. Before you ask for the sale, create the product you wish you had.

Before you need support, be the supportive friend. Before you need love, be the loving partner.

Always give value before you ask for value.

James Clear (American writer)

… on dialogue:

In true dialogueboth sides are willing to change.

Thích Nhất Hạnh (Vietnamese monk)

… on culture:

Every human is like all other humans, some other humans, and no other human.

Clyde Kluckhohn (American anthropologist and social theorist)

… on innovation:

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Albert Einstein
