This course will be about Mental Models, Thinking, Behaviors (especially automatic behaviors like habits), certain learning techiniques (like the route method), how to adjust your behaviors and simply think different and see things in a new light.
Some short descriptions here.
Waiting things out, don‘t let restlessness move you, relaxed focus
Pomodoro Cycles, Resting enough, finding a start, stop when going good
Knowing how you focus
Finding and removing distrations, don‘t let restlessness move you, chains of habit are too light until it is too late, things add up, we need empty space for processing
Why meditation will help you with almost everything, but in a subtle way that you might not always attribute to meditation, it calms you down
The small creates the big, break things down to achievable steps, focus on the now, the next step you want to achieve, how to deal with problems?
Breaking Push Ups or Squats into smaller steps, practice this in many aspects of your life
The law of big numbers, or how long does it take until you know something will work long term? Results do not always tell us the truth, Focus on the Process
Find your strength and focus on doubling down on what your strength are. What type of learner and performer are you? How to figure it out
Always leave yourself some wiggling room, don‘t push everything to the limit at all times. Add 50% to the time you planned, don‘t overspend your budget, have a buffer
Reducing input, stay with things longer and you will find more quality and more depth
What are the triggers that you are unaware of and the need to explore them
Perception is reality, the brain might register it as done, undertalk and over deliver
Passive Learning, you become what you think the most, so many things in life run in automatic mode
Do you really have all the facts to be able to give your opinion or judge this?
Learning an orderly route to better remember facts and learn new things.
Think about problems backwards, inverse them, what is the worst thing you could do here?
How do you focus, what is your attention span?
Finding and removing distrations, don‘t let restlessness move you, chains of habit are too light to be felt until it is too late (W. Buffett), things add up, we need empty space for processing.
Some very simple meditation concepts and why they work in improving so many things.
A concept you don't hear much about, you often need to do or repeat something a certain amount before you can with true confidence say, you know how to do this or to say you have no clue.
What type of learner or performer are you? How can you find that out? And once you know, what does that mean and how do you use this?
A concept from the late Ben Graham, the Mentor of Warren Buffett. When you drive your car and you leave some distance between you and the car in front of you, that is applying a margin of safety. You allow yourself some reaction time by having a good amount of space or wiggle room. If you are right behind the car in front, when something goes wrong, you will immediately hit the car in front or have no room to maneuver. Similar with being on time for important meetings.
This lecture is about taking more time with a subject and not always directly moving on when we think we have understood this. It is about reducing the input you get on a daily basis, so that you can get more quality out of the things that you do and give your attention to.
Be a doer, undertalk and overdeliver. Let your actions speak
Why Non-Judgement is so helpful and how it applies to real life
The key here is passive learning and automatic behavior
An amazing technique that teaches to learn many things in a specific order so that we can remember many things with more ease. Engaging the mind !!
Always Inverse. Thinking about problems backwards. What is the worst thing I could do here, how can I waste the most time, what errors am I always prone to make? What is the end result of this subject and how does it go in reverse so to reach the beginning?
My name is Chris Pimmer,
I am as stated above, a thinker, a writer, a poet, a philosopher, a Taoist and much more.
For 11 years I have studied at the University of Hamburg, Germany, some of my subjects were. Linguistics, Economics (BWL), Psychology, Music Science and Computer Programming.
I speak four languages (used to be five, but I lost my french after never using it), Portugues, Spanish, English and of course German.
Since 1990 I play the Piano (Mostly things like Pop, I loveme some Billy Joel). I am also an ok chess player.
Ever since my late teens I have been into reading and learning, but I noticed that often times my learning would work a little different than that of the institutions I studied at.
I have lived and studied in Recife, Brazil for 1 year back in 2006 (at the university ferderal de pernambuco: UFPE), during that time I lived in a martial arts academy, training mostly capoeira. For about 10+ years I also played high performance Basketball. Most recently I spent 6 months living in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, to widen my horizon. I have spent time (3+ weeks) in quite a lot of countries to learn from different teachers and masters in a form of mentorship, things that one does not certificates for, but are applicable in many situations. (Sweden, UK and the USA).
In the past I was Founded a small Record label, where we published a couple Albums and Music Videos (our main artists name is CAZINO) and also helped Co-Founding the first Warehouse Gym in Hamburg. Back when the internet was still relatively new, I taught myself HTML, CSS, PHP as well as graphic design, to create an online presence for small businesses.
For 11 years I have been personally mentoring some young students on many subjects, such as Basketball, thinking, decision making and others and recently I have opened up this mentoring and teaching to a wider audience and with Udemy I hope to be able to connect with many of you, so that we can all learn from each other.
