orange notes: #106: Scott Adams: The Man Behind Dilbert
As soon as you focus you’ve given yourself something to fail at and closed yourself off to other opportunities
Fucking exactly. That’s why I wanna be a generalist!
Fail in a way that puts you ahead
Fail such that you gain skills / improve something along the way
So you didn’t actually just waste your time
Cut cravings by focusing on one at a time and reducing the willpower load
This is all experimentation
Creativity is a process of removing barriers.
Instead of one of pulling something in that was outside me.
This is just like the meditation definition of focus where it’s always there, you just have to avoid the distractions.
Moving art into the dimension of craft
6 dimensions of humor + moves your body
Omg spasmodic disphonia is what abuela Carlos had!
