Making progress on big projects is hard, especially if you have a busy life with multiple responsibilities.

The only real test of intelligence is if you get what you want out of life
There are many definitions of intelligence and this is something I think about often, especially from the point of view of artificial intelligence. From the point of view of society, I love this quote from Naval Ravikant: “The only real test of intelligence is if you get what you want out of life.” From this… Continue reading The only real test of intelligence is if you get what you want out of life
Improve your learnings while reading by asking yourself pointed questions
I was just listening to a talk from Jim Kwik and he spoke about how retained more information while reading. He states its a complete waste of time if you are reading and not retaining information.

I found that even just occasional social drinking is not acceptable for me as well. I would get… Continue reading Stop drinking alcohol

I spend a lot of time thinking about what success is. I even keep a collection of definitions of success I’ve heard. The dictionary defines success as “The accomplishment of a success or purpose”. This is a good general purpose definition and it can apply to almost any kind of goal, long or short, big… Continue reading Success is not repeating the same mistake again
AGI Research MO
Sometimes I will start reading a paper and go down a rabbit hole following lots of different papers. There is so many papers to read and so many directions to go towards and sometimes I end up getting overwhelmed and frustrated because there is too much information and it all seems too hard. So sometimes… Continue reading AGI Research MO
