A @BowTiedBull Wisdom Thread πŸ‘‡

When you’re young, you can consume practically anything

The most classic items are cheap carbs:
pizza, ramen noodles, lots of rice, candy bars, fast food etc..
Your body is able to consume these items and see no major impact (when you’re young)

This leads to the belief that food is just a way to get rid of the β€œhunger” feeling

Completely wrong
Around your mid-20s to early 30s you’ll see a dramatic change in your body

You’ll feel worse when you consume unhealthy foods

Your skin will become more dry, prone to acne and pale

Instead of having a glowing/healthy skin color it will look matted and broken down
This leads to a large amount of damage to your internal body

Healing from the inside out takes a lot more time and is not easy to reverse
The answer is clear

Your body does not react to food based purely on calories

While it's true you could eat 3 candy bars a day and lose weight, your body will be in terrible shape after a week of that type of torture
Just look at the experiments run on people who eat fast food consistently

They break down

Taking your diet seriously should begin as soon as you are living alone (low 20s at latest)

If you’ve played any sport at a high level, you know that touch (coordination/accuracy) and cardio go away first
While you don’t need to play a sport that has a ton of coordination involved, ignoring anaerobic activity is pretty close to a death sentence

Yes, we’re taking it to an extreme to emphasize how important it is
If you don’t do any sort of high intensity training: sprints, sprints on a bike, jumping exercises etc...

You’re going to be in quite a bit of pain

This doesn’t show up instantly and is more of a slow erosion over time

Where does it show up? In your sleep
If you feel groggy in the morning it's typically because of lower oxygen intake (breathing out of mouth) and lower blood flow (no movement)

Both of these are caused by low anaerobic activity
Going to the gym is what every average guy does

It just isn't enough

You want to have a body that is used to various types of movement from regular strength (weights) to anaerobic (sprints) to endurance (swimming)
Most people fall into the trap (including us) of focusing on body composition

Sure you look a lot better but you want to feel 100% as well

Giving up intense cardio probably causes you to lose 1 hour of productive work per day
We wish we were exaggerating but it seems to be reality

Note: when you get to your mid-30s stretching becomes a dangerous item to neglect
We luckily avoided this one but we’re leaving this note here in case someone reads it and realizes that they have not been stretching for several years

No stretching = severe injury

Thread FIN!
There it is

Don't forget Good Nutrition and Intense Cardio

A Day In The Life of a LOSER

7:45am >> Alarm clock does off. (Snooze)

7:50am >> Alarm clock goes off again (Snooze)

7:55am >> Alarm clock goes off, hits snooze button and finally gets out of bed to change
8:00am >> alarm clock goes off again and hits because he keeps his clock next to his bed so he doesn’t have to stand up to get to the desk

8:20am >> Just got out of the shower and is now running **10 minutes late** see above

One of my favorite people on the planet is @ScottAdamsSays

He's a favorite because of all the fun I remember having reading his writings and may be for one or two life lessons here and there

A Thread of my most memorable Scott Adams moments πŸ‘‡
His blogs site in 2 sites. The current one is there since 2008. But before that, he's written quite a bit of great articles in the typepad site

Here are some of my favorites from there
But I suggest you spend a nice, paid-by-your-employer Monday Morning to go through the entire site

A Story in a Thread πŸ‘‡

(and its lessons in the next thread)
You’re dropped into the middle of a jungle. No contacts. No resources

The immediate reaction is to find a source of water to survive

You quickly take to a perch near a river and realize you need food as well
You observe the wild life taking notes and quickly devour anything edible in sight based on your observations. You may live another day

A few days pass and you catch wind of edible fish in the river. You don’t know how to fish.

Always Notice How You Were Sold

(aka the Easiest Way To Learn Persuasion)

A Thread on understanding how Sales is related to Emotions πŸ‘‡
>> Did you just 'Like' a Tweet?


β€’ Was it the message?
β€’ Or the way it was presented (structure+language)?
β€’ Was it because u know the author?
β€’ Or did it confirm any of your existing bias?
>> Did you buy something instantly?

Pause to think about how exactly u were persuaded to buy

β€’ Did they evoke FOMO by saying "low price today only"?
β€’ Did it come from a person you regard highly?
β€’ Did some recent new belief made u buy? ("spend money to earn money!")
