Grant adams deeper than dating
After Adams began affirmations, he was drawn to a PBS show about how to draw cartoons.
Maybe that show had been on a hundred times and Adams just missed it.
Take the words; pull and yank, Adams tells Ferriss. It sounds like such a small thing, but it saves me a considerable amount of effort and time.”The ideas of goals and systems were first introduced to Adams when he was twenty-one and boarded a plane for California.
Adams wore “a cheap three-piece suit” his parents had given him, because he didn’t know what to wear.
You notice that your kids’ names aren’t that unique.
This structure can be used for becoming a cartoonist.
“The way I use hypnosis is too broadly for the public,” Adams explains, “I’m talking about the science of persuasion.” Okay, but what does this have to do with writing a book?
“My challenge in a book,” says Adams, “is that you will continually get bored.” To combat that, Adams uses the powers of persuasion.
Much like affirmations, Adams relies on tactics that work. Adams’ aims with hypnosis is to use certain words to get you to think in certain ways. “Language has that much control over what you think,” Adams says, “I will get rid of a more accurate word to put in a word that has more of a programming control.”When Gretchen Rubin was interviewed by Lifehacker she said her best time-saving trick was changing the language of her email signature.
Nassim Taleb writes about this as a filter for bullshit: “I have used all my life a wonderfully simple heuristic: charlatans are recognizable in that they will give you positive advice, and only positive advice.” If Adams said the only way to do it is his way (and he sells a program to help you) then we could consider it bunk. You hear your name because you’ve trained to hear it.
