When we get angry, we suffer.

If you really understand that, you also will be able to understand that when the other person is angry, it means that she is suffering.

When someone insults you or behaves violently towards you, you have to be intelligent enough to see that the person suffers from his own violence and anger.

But we tend to forget. We think that we are the only one that suffers, and the other person is our oppressor. This is enough to make anger arise, and to strengthen our desire to punish. We want to punish the other person because we suffer. Then, we have anger in us; we have violence in us, just as they do. When we see that our suffering and anger are no different from their suffering and anger, we will behave more compassionately.

So understanding the other is understanding yourself, and understanding yourself is understanding the other person.

Everything must begin with you.

[About Angela Duckworth - American academic, psychologist - experiment]

Duckworth finds it useful to divide the mechanics of achievement into two separate dimensions: motivation and volition. Each one, she says, is necessary to achieve long-term goals, but neither is sufficient alone. Most of us are familiar with the experience of possessing motivation but lacking volition: You can be extremely motivated to lose weight, for example, but unless you have the volition— the willpower, the self-control— to put down the cherry Danish and pick up the free weights, you’re not going to succeed.

If a child is highly motivated, the self-control techniques and ...

[Somatic markers] We do things instinctively because our past experiences taught us to avoid danger or do things that will please us [Somatic markers] We do things instinctively because our past experiences taught us to avoid danger or do things that will please us

(…) this chain-link of concepts and body parts and sensations creates what scientist Antonio Damasio calls a somatic marker—a kind of bookmark, or shortcut, in our brainssum. Sown by past experiences of reward and punishment, these markers serve to connect an experience or emotion with a specific, required reaction.

By instantaneously helping us narrow down the possibilities available in a situation, they shepherd us toward a decision that we know will yield the best, least painful outcome. Long after we've passed our sixth year, we "know" whether or not it's right to kiss a hostess we barely know good-bye after ...

The idea you want to get across must allow people to sublimate themselves by relaying it The idea you want to get across must allow people to sublimate themselves by relaying it

How does it make people look to talk about a product or idea? Most people would rather look smart than dumb, rich than poor, and cool than geeky. Just like the clothes we wear and the cars we drive, what we talk about influences how others see us. It’s social currency. Knowing about cool things—like a blender that can tear through an iPhone—makes people seem sharp and in the know. So to get people talking we need to craft messages that help them achieve these desired impressions. We need to find our inner remarkability and make people feel like insiders. We need to leverage game mechanics to give people ways to achieve and provide visible symbols of status that they can show to others.
