We think in language. The quality of our thoughts and ideas can only be as good as the quality of our language. George Carlin If you have read other I Grow Younger posts before, you have noticed we differ from other self-help content. Less storytelling, more ideas and concepts. But also the way we present. There is something different in our langua...
“Mathematics is the language through which God has written the universe” “The purpose of mathematics is not to make simple things complicated, but to make complicated things simple” Alexander Grothendieck, “the Einstein of mathematics” But what did this undisputed genius really do to make things simple? Wh...
Freedom is not the easiest concept to grasp. From the very important things in life, it’s the most invisible one. Here’s why: If you have freedom and always had it, you can’t imagine your life without it, it becomes invisible, a given… But if you don’t have freedom and never had it, how do you know what you’re mi...
How often do you have time thoughts? “If only I had more time in the day…” “Once *this specific shit* is over, I’ll have more time for what I want to do…” “I’m not exercising because I don’t have the time…” Some people seem to get more done in a day than others in a week. How c...
When we talked about the inadequacy of schools, we started with this golden quote: Education either functions as an instrument to bring about conformity or freedom. Let’s give our children freedom. Trish Millines Dziko Schools are more or less mandatory, not because of the less than ideal structure most of them currently maintain and not because ...
Human biology has barely evolved in the last 15,000 years. But our world didn’t stay the same. Science and technology gave us the understanding and tools to change everything around us (for better and worse). We often hear how language (and specifically written language) was the major driving force of progress. But there is one more concept w...
Education either functions as an instrument to bring about conformity or freedom. Let’s give our children freedom. Trish Millines Dziko I strongly believe the education system is a relic, it has to be destroyed and completely rebuilt. We’ll focus on schools here but universities are often not much better. Much of the same applies there....
The most constant force in our lives is Inertia. We delay change, avoid conflict and stick to what works, even if it doesn't work well. It's so familiar, it’s even called “The comfort zone”. Even if Inertia is an evolutionary relic, it doesn't feel that way. Only a more compelling force can help us out of Inertia - Love and Chaos.
Every time we encounter an obstacle we can ask: is this a Game of Self challenge or a Game of Life one? Is the problem in my head or based in reality? And if the answer is “it’s both”, then we must dive deeper until every part of it takes only Game of Self or Game of Life skills to fix.
In I Grow Younger we value Love and Freedom above all else. And while we do believe in ethics, morality will never be the foundation on which we build our concepts. It just seems… too man-made, not fundamental enough. This might be confusing, especially for religious people or ones brought up by parents, who value morality above all. We’...
Life is a series of good times and bad times. This is life direction - a powerful force that says where you're coming from is what you're moving towards. And your only power over it? All those tiny, everyday decisions you make.
Learn to understand the types of love, how to practice healthy self-love and live without expectations. Resist cultural pressure as culture is all wrong about this and much of the existing self-help advice is beyond bad. Wield the endless power of love to change your life and grow younger!
Religion is Faith turned into a story, trying to spread its story genes endlessly and outcompete every other story, including any other strong belief or extreme ideology (eg. Communism). It evolves like a living organism responding to good and bad human leaders’ traits and cultural pressure and has one goal: survival.
Balance is a myth! There is no law of the universe, society or psychology that says balance has a sacred place in this world. Sometimes it works, sometimes it destroys. Learn about the many aspects of modern life where balance is not the appropriate choice for happiness and the classic example of the quantity-of-fucks-given
Life is full of barriers. There always seems to be something between us and a bright future. Failure is constant. In such a mess, how can we measure “our potential” to do something big in life? Well, we don’t have to. Human potential is unlimited. Everyone can achieve anything meaningful. Any. Single. Thing.
How to change? We do it all the time, just not always for the better. There is rarely internal resistance to developing bad habits or becoming addicted (to substances, experiences, or people). But remember positive change is just as exciting and steer your life’s direction toward what will make you a hunter again.
Life is kinda difficult to analyze without a bias. We’re stuck right in the middle, everything is wrapped around in emotions and whatever happened recently seems overwhelmingly more important than whatever didn’t. How to make sense of it all? Learn the concept of Structure and have fun analyzing like never before.
Living in a money-driven world is the current human condition. Is this the best way or a step in our collective evolution? This is a tough question. But it’s also not important. Money is simply a tool for convenience. This post will help you drop your financial fears, “feel money” and be a realistic optimist.
Time, Money, and other actual stuff doesn't separate itself into work and non-work kinds. They just flow following natural laws. We put the barriers and do the separation in our heads, against the natural order of things. We don't do it because we're strong. We do it because we're weak. Learn how to manage and enjoy chaos!
