I’ve talked a lot in the past about how difficult yet vital it is to develop a positive growth mindset. At this point, I’m still not sure of a sure-fire way of developing one; but I’ve thought enough to think of three quick tips that might help anyone who’s interested in trying.
All of our interactions with others are essentially games. All parties take their role, play the game, and then win or lose. Sometimes the entire group wins, sometimes the entire group loses. Social game theory is something that has fascinated me a lot over the course of the last few years, yet I find it horribly underutilized. I wanted to dedicate this blogpost to jotting down a couple of notes on the topic.
When we view research, we typically see those that are deemed “successful” research. What that means is that the test worked — that they succeeded in rejecting the null hypothesis, aka that there was no effect at all. However, when we’re only looking at what worked — we’re not looking at what didn’t work. And that means we’re missing out on half the puzzle.
Pretty much everyone at this point is aware of the proverbial “Boomers versus Zoomers”; the millennial generation has been so upset by baby boomers that they’ve called them out pretty loudly over social media and other platforms. On the other hand, Boomers have cried afoul of the Millenials and say they’ve fallen from grace. So now the question is this: who is right, and how did this all happen in the first place?

Yup, we’re doing another one of these. For those of you who are new, the State of the Union is my longest-running series, going all the way back to 2014 (though it wasn’t called “State of the Union” until 2015). In this post, I’m going to recap our planned goals for last year with what we hit/missed, as well as go over some goals for 2020.
Well, it’s that time of year again; time where I utilize my hyperactive chronicling and rating tendencies to list out all the things I liked the most this year. This year I have a list for Video Games, Movies, Music, and Books… however, I’m only touching stuff that I’ve completed myself, regardless of what year it was made (the exception here is music, where I was able to confidently pick out my 5 favorite albums of 2019). In order for you to see everything I’ve completed this year, I’ll be linking my relevant chronicling profile for each of the subjects listed as a hyperlink for that subject. Anyway, let’s get into it.
