The hardest choices often have the biggest impact.
Spending too much time making a decision that only has a minor impact is wasted energy.
That’s why large inter-government conventions always disappoint. The outcomes are disproportionate to the size of the meeting and the resources required to make them.
While it’s true that the Laws of the Universe determine that the larger a group, the harder it is to get it moving, we also have the internet, which eliminates the need for physical proximity; Unless you want to whisper in someone’s ear.
It’s almost as if our leaders fear that without all the fanfare and security and photo opportunities and protestors, people might notice they don’t make many decisions at all; Unless you count choosing the status quo, of course.
The only thing more naive than expecting a government to make a real decision is expecting them to follow through with it.
But it’s a great show.
That’s why the clown got the ringmaster’s hat.
If there’s one formula that could be called the “secret to life,” it’s this: input shapes your output.
Our environment defines us almost entirely.
The people we live with change us.
The things we read and listen to shape our thoughts.
What we taste and smell and see affects how we feel.
And our actions build our identity.
Getting what you want from life is as simple as figuring out what it is you want and then shaping your environment — what your body goes through — to create that result.
Like all great games, learning how to play is easy — but getting good takes work.
Most people don’t know this one very gross and disturbing fact about the human body.
Your bodyweight is at least half bacteria cells — maybe more.
Some people think we’re just very complicated bacteria-transport machines. I’m going a step further and saying they run the whole damn planet.
Hear me out.
There are more bacteria on earth than all other life forms combined.
They live everywhere from the sea bed to the roots of trees, and they talk to each other. They live in our gut and they talk to our brain.
And we just found out these crafty little buggers use quantum mechanics to control energy.
Now, I’m not saying that one day they’ll get tired of us messing with everything and extinct us off their planet.
But I’m trying to stay on their good side, just in case.
