The most important thing about writing is discovering novel and non-trivial truths, and determining which of your truths is most important—then imposing order, hierarchy, and linearity—through judgment, decisiveness, and will.
Just because someone presents an argument, it does not mean that it is as valid as another point of view. Trying to meet in the middle with a false compromise could lead you further from the truth or away from the correct conclusion.The false compromise fallacy: why the middle ground is not always the best

Almost anyone you know and respect as a writer is known and respected because they’re able to muster brute, linear willfulness. Even if they use Roam Research or whatever, if they’re actually publishing a real body of work, then it’s their brute linear willfulness despite the handicapping of knowledge graph overwhelm.Personal Knowledge Management is Bullshit
But the deferred life plan was a bit more sinister. It was an elusive pursuit of fleeting happiness. It was a flawed belief that my life would start once I hit “my number.” Or when I retired at sixty.Saying goodbye to the “deferred life plan”
It is crucial to focus on the similarities and the goal that brought you together, and not on the differences. We should always keep in mind the contributions we can make and the impact and difference we can bring. And, most importantly, we should never be afraid of speaking up.
Instead of blindly following organisational goals, servant leaders prioritise the well-being and development of individuals within their team. This results in better engagement, better mental health, and better personal growth.Servant leadership: why being a servant leader is worth the work

From the inside, via introspection, each of us feels that our beliefs are pretty damn sensible. Sure we might harbor a bit of doubt here and there. But for the most part, we imagine we have a firm grip on reality; we don’t lie awake at night fearing that we’re massively deluded.Crony Beliefs

Just several months after the covid lockdown of 2020, I was already in dire need of hope. While in a life and death, sink and swim situation, a figure appeared on TV who gave me goosebumps that indeed I can rely on the government that we, as Filipinos, got it together. A “we’re figuring it out” response was just what I needed.
What kind of Philippines do I want for myself and for my family? A country that stands for human rights. A country that stands for fairness and justice. A country that stands for accountability. A country that inspires hope that in order to have a better life, we need to be better with ourselves, and with one another. A holistic approach.
Thank you, Leni, for inspiring us to hope for a better now and future. That inspiration is the intrinsic spark of your vice-presidency and presidential campaign run.

Rasyon ng Inspirasyon Podcast Transcript
Naaalala niyo pa ba nung magsimula ang covid lockdown dito sa Manila? On-going pa noon ang ashfall mula sa Taal volcano, kaya mag stock na kami ng masks. Magkasunod na pagsubok bumagsak sa ating lahat. Makalipas ang ilang buwan tsaka ko naramdaman ang kawalan ng pag-asa. Pakiramdam ko parang bangkang may butas ang ating bansa pagdating sa pandemic response. Isang araw, lumabas sa TV si Leni at nagpahayag ng mensahe ng pag-asa. Literal na tumindig ang balahibo ko dahil tsaka ko lang na-realize na pwede pala akong kumapit sa gobyerno.
Ito sa harapan ko ang isang tao na nakatayo sa gitna ng kaguluhan, nagsasabi na ito ang mga pwede nating gawin para ‘di tayo maglugmok ng epekto ng pandemya — sa kalusugan at ekonomiya. Salita lang ang mga ‘yon pero napakalaking bagay para sa akin na maging matatag at harapin ang takot.
Anong klaseng Pilipinas ang gusto ko para sa sarili at para sa pamilya ko? Pilipinas na nagpapahalaga sa buhay at karapatang pantao. Isang bansang makatarungan at patas. Isang bansang pinamumunuan ng mga tao na responsable sa kanilang mga tungkulin sa bayan. At higit sa lahat, isang bansa na nangingibabaw ang pag-asa. Pag-asa ang gas at langis natin upang bumangon at magpatuloy, upang maging mabuti unang-una sa ating sarili at sa isa’t-isa. Sa pamamagitan ng pag-asa tayo yayabong.
Nagpapasalamat ako sa’yo, Leni, dahil para sa akin naipakita mo kung ano ang posible para sa isang pinuno. Ang pagiging matino at pagbibigay ng inspirasyon at pag-asa.
Para sa inspirasyon na dulot mo ang kantang ito. May mga ilang salita akong naisulat na nagsisilbing pundasyon ng gusto kong sabihin sa kanta:
Ang pagbuhos ng rasyon ng inspirasyon
May takdang araw
Ang mismong eleksyon, isang araw. Ang buhay natin, araw-araw.
Lahat tayong mga Pilipino ay nasa iisang bansa. Nasa iisang bangka. Magkakaiba tayo at magkakasama tayo. Isang matapat na pamumuno ang pinanghahawakan natin para patuloy tayo sa paglayag.

Some psychologists call this constant chasing of pleasure the “hedonic treadmill” because people who are constantly striving for a “better life” end up expending a ton of effort only to end up in the same place.
Many projects begin with principles (ex: easy, simple). But the hard part isn’t coming up with the principles so much as adhering to them or rather becoming subservient to them.
So moderating spam seems to quite clearly enable more free speech by making platforms for speech more usable. Without such moderation, the platforms would get less use and people would be less likely to be able to speak in the same manner.
Why Moderating Content Actually Does More To Support The Principles Of Free Speech
While many of us have thought of being a good listener being like a sponge that accurately absorbs what the other person is saying, instead, what these findings show is that good listeners are like trampolines.
