2022.01.19 22:59 Jumpsaye An antidote for inaction

Our lives are the sum of all the decisions we make.
We've all encountered moments when we know we should do something, but are too lazy or lack the courage.

Any of this sound familiar?
I spend a lot of time thinking on the margin where these decisions are made.
Funny story: I’ve got Thai script tattooed on my leg which translates to ‘Take initiative’ from when I trained martial arts in Phuket. It’s clearly visible when I sit cross-legged, and it’s a reminder for myself to, well, take initiative.
Sometimes, all it takes is a gentle nudge to overcome laziness and fear.
Here are six ideas I keep in mind when I need that nudge: Minimize potential regrets Engineer your own luck Step into the arena When in doubt, ship it A closed mouth doesn’t get fed Make uphill decisions
Minimize potential regrets
Jeff Bezos, Founder of Amazon, has a simple mental model for making tough decisions.
He asks himself the following question:
Then he takes action.
The next time you have an opportunity to take on an impactful project at the expense of your temporary free time, ask yourself: “In 5 years, will I regret not doing this?”
“I knew that when I was 80 I was not going to regret having tried this. I was not going to regret trying to participate in this thing called the Internet that I thought was going to be a really big deal. I knew that if I failed I wouldn’t regret that, but I knew the one thing I might regret is not ever having tried.” — Jeff Bezos
Engineer your own luck
Luck doesn't have to be passive. You can engineer your own luck by maximizing your chance of serendipity.
‘Getting lucky’ is the result of an:
  1. Attitude (belief or mindset)
  2. Opportunity (a good thing coming your way)
  3. Action (doing something about it).
Consider the Luck Razor: If stuck with 2 equal options, pick the one that feels like it will produce the most luck later down the line. (e.g. Instead of watching Netflix, go out for drinks with a stranger).
Step into the arena
I stole this idea from Sahil Bloom, who stole it from one of Theodore Roosevelt’s most widely known speeches.
Being on the sidelines is easy. It’s comfortable and it’s the safe option. It’s tough to step into the arena — to be vulnerable, exposed, and open — but that’s where growth happens.
Be the man (or woman!) in the arena.
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
When in doubt, ship it
It takes time for the quality of your work to catch up to your ambition.
Your first article, piece of artwork, podcast, product… will likely be subpar.
By shipping early, you get more feedback, and as a result — more opportunities to iterate on your work.
In the Marshmallow challenge, MBA students and Kindergarteners were given 18 minutes to build the tallest possible structure with marshmallows and spaghetti. Guess who won? Kindergarteners. Once the timer went off, Kindergarteners immediately began building structures. Through rapid iteration, they were able to quickly understand what worked and what didn’t. The MBA students were most likely stymied by analysis-paralysis, overthinking the problem, and failing to test sufficiently.
A closed mouth doesn’t get fed
Be your own best advocate. Learn to identify what you want and ask for it.
The worst thing that can happen is a ‘no’ and you’re back to the status quo. (wow, that rhymed)
And if you receive a 'no,' it’ll just thicken your skin. Rejection therapy has long been used to help folks enhance their emotional intelligence.
Make uphill decisions
We’re wired to take the path of least resistance.
Instead, encourage yourself to do the hard things and make uphill decisions:
We all desire to achieve something effortlessly, yet the effort paradox holds true in that it takes more effort to make something appear effortless.
Do the hard things.
An antidote for inaction
Keep these ideas in your toolbox for the next time you're faced with a seemingly difficult decision. Especially, if you believe that laziness or fear is driving you in one direction.
I’ll leave you with this:

Hey guys it’s me again, I’ve been using google spreadsheets to keep track of my manga that I’ve purchased and MAL for my read manga list. Is that the best for both? Or is there some app or website I don’t know about that is better for this kind of stuff?

2022.01.19 22:59 Technical-Flower9051 L&D Nurse Gifts

I wanted to ask people in the profession about gifts for the L&D nurses at my upcoming birth. I know things are especially hard for healthcare workers right now, and I wanted to get something to thank the people who will be caring for me and my new baby.
I was wondering if this would be something that the nurses would like, how many nurses would likely be involved, whether there are Covid restrictions to consider, and what would be most useful/ or actually enjoyed as gifts. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

2022.01.19 22:59 Pumpkininafurnace27 Is it even possible to make the team?

Hi! I know there are a lot of these posts here but I have yet to find one that addresses my situation. I want to try out for football next year at my high school, but I have a few problems. First, our team is really full of skilled players, and the lower level team is full of players that have been playing a long time and are pretty much waiting to be on the higher team. Right now our football program is pretty focused on setting up to continue getting state championships (not that we have many). Second, I'm only like 110 lbs and 5' 6" with no experience. I am very fit, but as it's from ballet I am not entirely sure if I could fully utilize my strength in a sports setting. Also, I'm a girl. Is it worth preparing to try out?

2022.01.19 22:59 curiousfoxlover82 I really wish I could at least join zoom meetings separately on a different device

Usually during midweek meetings, I'd have to sit with my older PIMI sister 30 minutes before the zoom meeting starts, dressed up and with a camera on most of the time. I just do what she says so everything goes smoothly and she doesn't end up getting mad and blaming me afterwards if something happens or if I don't "get ready" as soon as possible before the meeting starts. Joining the meeting 30 minutes early is personally a problem for me because I have to sit still and listen to all the older members talk and make poorly made "appropriate" jokes. One time an elder slurped his cup of whatever the heck it was and was called out by another elder, saying "that was loud, makes me wish I could get a sip!" Which makes me cringe deep down to the depths of my soul lol!
My point is my zoom meetings make me so uncomfortable that I just wish, even if I can't choose not to join them, I could at least join on a different advice with the camera and mic off, but that's not going to happen anytime soon...

2022.01.19 22:59 OTGirl33 Pregnant with lifting restriction

I have a couple conditions I’ve been diagnosed with due to my pregnancy and I’ve been out of work for a month. My MD has allowed me to return to week with a 20 lb lifting restriction but my work is refusing to allow me to work because of this restriction. Can they do that? I can perform my usual job activities and they have not offered me any sort of modification to accommodate. I feel like they can’t do this. I will have this restriction for the next 6 months. Any recommendations?

2022.01.19 22:59 kandykokaine Planning a trip to Las Vegas next month and need some assistance

My boyfriend and I are planning a trip to Las Vegas next month for our anniversary. We will be staying for two nights and I'm having a hard time finding a budget-friendly hotel that doesn't charge a resort fee. With all the money we'll need to spend on other things, I don't think it's reasonable to pay so much for a hotel room that we're only going to sleep in.
I would really appreciate some advice on how to find the best valued option, good websites for booking, and avoiding resort fees. Ideally I'd like it to include free parking and cancellation just in case. I'm sorry if this is too specific. I've never been involved in planning a trip before so it's a little overwhelming. Thank you to whoever can help me out!
