    Life Lessons I Learned From Traveling Through China & the Philippines

    Life Lessons I Learned From Traveling Through China & the Philippines

    With COVID, I haven’t traveled outside the country in almost three years. Now, I know a lot of people who have already traveled to another country in 2021 and 2022 for vacation, but I know people who won’t. At least for now, I fall in the latter camp. In the meantime, I can do some reminiscing. This podcast episode details the value of travel and the life lessons I learned from when I traveled through China and the Philippines. Enjoy!

    How to Not Die Alone (By Eliminating Self-Sabotaging Tendencies) - A Book Summary

    How to Not Die Alone (By Eliminating Self-Sabotaging Tendencies) - A Book Summary

    This podcast episode dives into the details of what I learned from a book called How to Not Die Alone. The book provides very useful tips and insights about three self-sabotaging tendencies that stop us from succeeding in our love life in the modern world. I believe these tendencies can also be applied to the professional world, with our pursuit of a dream job and following our passion. I explain how you can map these tips to the career world. Hope you find it valuable! I certainly did. I think this book is a little less known than it should be, so I think it’s worth putting this podcast episode out there.

    You’ll learn:



    * How modern dating didn’t happen until the 18th century. Arranged marriages for resources was the norm for thousands of years before that.

    * How we’re in another revolution with online dating, and that’s why we’re all so confused.

    * The three tendencies that self-sabotage our success and keep us from getting out there and/or committing.

    * What attachment theory is and how it self-sabotages.

    * Various tips on how to enhance your dating success.

    Book Review

    Throughout the podcast episode, I point to the merits of the book and how it’s worth reading. But since this is the book review section, I will focus more on the things I thought could’ve been better. That doesn’t detract from the fact that overall, I found this book to be useful and an enjoyable, actionable read.

    Dating advice from women has notoriously been made up of a lot of bad advice based in too much theory and not enough experience. On rare occasion, you can find some gems. The classic example is the most common, terrible advice to be yourself; men throw their hands up in the air in frustration in reaction, complaining that they have been being themselves for years with little success. While good intentioned, the advice focuses on the spirit of how being fake repels women, but fails to account for the fact that you should probably present your best self, not just your normal self, if you want to see a change from your typical, drab results. I, for example, am a slow talker who doesn’t like to mention that much about me in the fear of bragging, but people may conclude that I am boring from that snapshot. Being myself can put me into a disadvantage.

    Returning to my main point, this book has generally good advice. It has advice that’s tested with various real life examples. You can tell the author has coached a lot of people successfully. That said, I did notice pockets of advice that missed the mark a bit. She suggests using two factors to decide which events you should go to meet people in real life; these factors are how much you’d enjoy the event and how good the conversations will be there. Just from experience, I knew immediately that she was missing at least one other important factor: how likely it is that the mates you want to meet will go there. For example, I love the gym, board game meetups, card meetups, and nerd/anime/game meetups; but the girl guy ratio there is consistently at least 1.5:1, sometimes 5:1, 10:1, or 1:0. That’s right. Sometimes, there isn’t a woman in sight except for people paid to coordinate the event. You may love Magic the Gathering or Dungeons and Dragons,

    End of Year Review of How 2021 (and 2020) Went For Me

    End of Year Review of How 2021 (and 2020) Went For Me

    I’m following the theme of popular blogs around the web by posting an annual end-of-year review . However, there’s going to be a few twists:



    * I’m going to keep it concise to a just a few major points rather than every little goal since I doubt you want to listen to three hours of talk.

    * It’s going to be a podcast form rather than article form. Hopefully, this style will be more entertaining and story-driven than an article. At the least, I found it easier to talk about it than write it.

    * I’m covering the last two years because they seemed like one to me with all the quarantining I’ve done due to Covid. I do delineate the different themes and goals/achievements/failures for each year, though.



    As a bonus, I filmed a casual, candid, uneditted YouTube video on how to make New Years Resolutions that stick that you can watch below. Hopefully, that’s helpful.



    Enjoy this podcast episode!



    There were various themes and ideas discussed, including mental health in a time of social distance, how learning to cope with being secluded can help you later in life, turning your obstacles into advantages, why some failures are okay, and more.

    If I had to highlight one or two major themes, I’d leave you with this:



    * We all wish for so much to happen so quickly. We underestimate what we can do in ten years, while overestimating what we can do in a year. There were years when I hoped for some major breakthrough, but deep down, I felt like this year would be more or less the same as before. And I was usually right. And maybe part of that’s okay. Some changes take a long time to manifest. Saving a bit extra money or getting on a slight caloric deficit may not have noticeable changes in a few weeks or months. But within years, there can be some huge changes.

    * And some goals need drastic changes, which aren’t easy or comfortable to make. I cover in the podcast what some of these were for me and what finally motivated me to make the necessary changes. It’s okay to be slow, kind to yourself, and plan for these changes.

    * 2020 & 2021 unearthed a lot of excuses people make around lack of time. When they had the time, they still just didn’t want to do it.

    * 2021 went well in terms of the amount of thank you messages I got thanks to all the student-focused study tip videos I made. One in particular got a lot of traction. However, it didn’t go that well in terms of any revenue I made. I don’t make much from my digital brand, and things stayed relatively flat despite trying new things, like promoting my course and focusing on YouTube.
