This is a great resource, particularly if you do a lotta corporate shoots, interviews, or documentary editing. Thanks so much for posting this. Reblogged this on Revolution. Reblogged this on deflofla and commented: The reason you keep making cuts to new angles is to enhance understanding, not necessarily to prevent boredom. The idea that people have short attention spans these days is just silly. I know kids who can play Call of Duty for 20 hours straight.
In response to your first point, if you take a basic film class, one of the first things you learn is that there are many different reasons for doing any specific film technique. Saying that varying your shots and perspective will not aid in keeping your audience attentive and interested is wrong. Second, the research you are referring to is called behavioral analysis, and is one of the most opinion driven sciences. Even if you did have access to the research you are talking about, which I doubt, you would be trying to refute something with an unproven science. Last, and most importantly, can you name any natural non electronic activity that produces as much visual and auditory stimulation for 20 hours straight as playing Call of Duty does?
Imagine a child who is raised on the notion that the Call of Duty level of stimulation is normal, while his parents grew up playing hide and seek outside and they are used to a much lower level of stimulation. The parents of the child will naturally be more content with less stimulation because they are used to it. When the child is deprived of this external stimulation, they get bored.
This is not complicated science, or and has been proven to a much higher degree than whatever study you are trying to refer to. Reblogged this on Conservative Free Thinkers. Great tips, thanks a lot for taking the time to write them up. Tags for this story:. Be aggressive about your ambition: Me Too is a movement, not a moment. Get the TED newsletter.

Ok it is so funny pozycjonowanie stron. And then you go to the "Prevent" column. In that column, you write down the answer to: What could I do to prevent each of these bullets from happening, or, at the very least, decrease the likelihood even a little bit? So for getting depressed in London, I could take a portable blue light with me and use it for 15 minutes in the morning. I knew that helped stave off depressive episodes. Then we go to "Repair. So in the first case, London, well, I could fork over some money, fly to Spain, get some sun — undo the damage, if I got into a funk.
In the case of missing a letter from the IRS, I could call a friend who is a lawyer or ask, say, a professor of law what they would recommend, who I should talk to, how had people handled this in the past. So one question to keep in mind as you're doing this first page is: Has anyone else in the history of time less intelligent or less driven figured this out?

Chances are, the answer is "Yes. The second page is simple: What might be the benefits of an attempt or a partial success? You can see we're playing up the fears and really taking a conservative look at the upside. So if you attempted whatever you're considering, might you build confidence, develop skills, emotionally, financially, otherwise? What might be the benefits of, say, a base hit? Spend 10 to 15 minutes on this. This might be the most important, so don't skip it: What we don't often consider is the atrocious cost of the status quo — not changing anything.
So you should ask yourself, if I avoid this action or decision and actions and decisions like it, what might my life look like in, say, six months, 12 months, three years? Any further out, it starts to seem intangible.
And really get detailed — again, emotionally, financially, physically, whatever. And when I did this, it painted a terrifying picture. I was self-medicating, my business was going to implode at any moment at all times, if I didn't step away. My relationships were fraying or failing.
And I realized that inaction was no longer an option for me. Those are the three pages. And after this, I realized that on a scale of one to 10, one being minimal impact, 10 being maximal impact, if I took the trip, I was risking a one to three of temporary and reversible pain for an eight to 10 of positive, life-changing impact that could be a semi-permanent. So I took the trip. None of the disasters came to pass.
There were some hiccups, sure. I was able to extricate myself from the business. I ended up extending that trip for a year and a half around the world, and that became the basis for my first book, that leads me here today. And I can trace all of my biggest wins and all of my biggest disasters averted back to doing fear-setting at least once a quarter. It's not a panacea. You'll find that some of your fears are very well-founded. But you shouldn't conclude that without first putting them under a microscope.

And it doesn't make all the hard times, the hard choices, easy, but it can make a lot of them easier. I'd like to close with a profile of one of my favorite modern-day Stoics. This is Jerzy Gregorek. He is a four-time world champion in Olympic weightlifting, political refugee, published poet, 62 years old.
He can still kick my ass and probably most asses in this room. He's an impressive guy. I spent a lot of time on his stoa, his porch, asking life and training advice. He was part of the Solidarity in Poland, which was a nonviolent movement for social change that was violently suppressed by the government. He lost his career as a firefighter. Then his mentor, a priest, was kidnapped, tortured, killed and thrown into a river.

He was then threatened. He and his wife had to flee Poland, bounce from country to country until they landed in the US with next to nothing, sleeping on floors. He now lives in Woodside, California, in a very nice place, and of the 10,plus people I've met in my life, I would put him in the top 10, in terms of success and happiness.
And there's a punchline coming, so pay attention.
I sent him a text a few weeks ago, asking him: Had he ever read any Stoic philosophy? And he replied with two pages of text. This is very unlike him. He is a terse dude. And not only was he familiar with stoicism, but he pointed out, for all of his most important decisions, his inflection points, when he stood up for his principles and ethics, how he had used stoicism and something akin to fear-setting, which blew my mind.
And he closed with two things. And the last was his mantra, which he applies to everything, and you can apply to everything:. The hard choices — what we most fear doing, asking, saying — these are very often exactly what we most need to do. And the biggest challenges and problems we face will never be solved with comfortable conversations, whether it's in your own head or with other people.
