    Removing Self-Limiting Beliefs, With Nick Rundlett [PODCAST #710]

    Nick Rundlett returns to first recap and reflect on our March 2020 conversation, as we sat on the edge of our seats, watching and waiting to see what it would be like to live through a global pandemic. We turned out okay. Today we'll talk about what we did with the last year, as far as adaptation and discovering growth opportunities. Nick has made some major strides with a program called MindFix; we explore the identification and removal of self-limiting beliefs, and the Lefkoe Method of addressing repetitive negative thoughts (Lefkoe Stimulus Process). We'll wrap up talking about fitness. We are now on Locals.com! When you join our Locals community, you'll get immediate access to playlists of all our serial ...

    The Cruel Prejudices of Inclusive Marketing – With Nathan Fraser [PODCAST #708]

    (Emotional Manipulators For Hire, Episode 7) Friend, copywriter, marketer, and Facebook World Champion Nathan Fraser and I continue our monthly conversation about marketing and media manipulation. You'll learn more about the tactics politicians and propagandists use against you, and how you can re-purpose such tactics for good. Today we'll talk about what has been called "woke advertising." Why it fails, and IF it really fails in the long run. People love to say "get woke, go broke" I wondered if that's really a reliable rule, but Nathan applies a formula: "This market is too much X.

    Orwell Rolls In His Grave – Part 1 [Un-iversity Documentary Club]

    In 2003, a group of lefties came together to make the case that conservatives control the mainstream media. Almost 20 years later, many of their concerns and criticisms actually seem pretty reasonable. In our first meeting of Documentary Club, we watch the first 30 minutes of the film (in 10-minute segments) and then we respond in a group discussion.  This whole discussion will come in 3 parts. Here is the full documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8L7_bVU1c0 Part of the Un-iversity Weekly Discussion Group Series A new weekly conversation about applying the lessons and practices of The Ideas Into Action Summit   to the chaos of the current world.

CORE TOPIC - Why does school suck?

John Taylor Gatto

CORE TOPIC - What does self-directed education look like?

Peter Gray - Self-Directed Education

The realization that school sucks actually marks the beginning of a new and exciting educational journey.

Welcome to SchoolSucksProject.com. We strive to provide young people with the building blocks of intellectual, financial and lifestyle independence. This includes in-depth explorations into higher-level thinking, organization and productivity, emotional and physical health, habit and lifestyle optimization, history and philosophy, psychology, self-directed learning, entrepreneurship, and communication/negotiation strategies. It's all essential information, but almost none of it is taught in school. Our content is ideal for frustrated high school and college students, home-educating parents, and adults who are interested in independently furthering their education and achieving self-actualization.
