14 Things I Should Have Learned Back in School - The second version of the compilation shows what is useful to learn from school.
1. 80/20 rule (Pareto principle)
80 percent of all the income you receive brings you only 20 percent of your business. Much of what you do is not really as necessary as you think it is.
2. Parkinson's Law
You can do what you need to do much faster than you think. The more time you spend on a task, the more you will spend.
3. Group operation
A good way to complete boring and repetitive tasks quickly is to do the whole set one after the other.
4. Give first, then receive. In that order, not the other way around
Over time, you will receive more than you have given.
5. Get ahead of the action. Don't slow down.
This will not only relieve you of expectations, but it will also give you pleasure - you will feel that you have the power to control your life.
6. Errors and failures are good
They allow you to gain invaluable experience, learn a lot of interesting things and become successful, since success in life often comes only if you have not succumbed to failures and mistakes. He comes only to the persistent.
7. Don't be too hard on yourself
This only creates additional unnecessary inner pain and takes up valuable time.
8. Make good contact
Treat any meeting like your best friends are there. And you start communicating with just such an attitude, instead of being nervous all this time.
9. Take advantage of the features of the reticular activating system.
This focusing system, the RAS, is located in the brain. To use it, you need to really focus on what you want and maintain your attention at all times (for example, a piece of paper on which you can write out some of this post, like "Give first" or "Make contact ").
10. Your attitude changes reality
Pessimism can hide behind a mask of realism. But this is because your RAS is attuned to the negative perception that you want to see. That is why you are "right" every time. On the other hand, it may be best not to be right in these situations.
If you try to drastically change your attitude instead of just considering the possibility, you will be pleasantly surprised.
11. Gratitude is an easy way to feel happy
If someone told me that feeling grateful for just a minute or two is a great way to turn a bad mood into a good one, I would seriously train to be grateful. It is also a great way to maintain a positive attitude and focus on the right goals. And also - to make others happy. Which in turn will make you even happier - emotions are contagious.
12. Don't compare yourself with others
If you compare yourself to others, you allow the outside world to control your sense of self. Mood swings are guaranteed for you.
It is much more productive to compare yourself to yourself. To see how far you have progressed, what goals you have achieved, and how you have grown above yourself. It may not sound so great, but in the end it will bring inner peace, strengthen willpower, and fill you with positive emotions.
13.80-90% of what you fear will never actually happen
These are just monsters that exist only in your head. And if it does happen, then more often than not everything is not as bad as you expected. Worrying in most cases is just a waste of time.
14. Don't take things too seriously
What seems like a big problem today, you may not even remember in three years. Taking yourself, your thoughts and emotions too seriously will only bring unnecessary suffering. So cool down and relax. Your mood will change in a wonderful way.
