Seth Godin: So Simple Yet So Profound

His writing I mean…

The words that work

We’re bad at empathy. As a result, when we’re arguing a point with someone, we tend to use words and images that work on us, not necessarily that help the other person.

So, if you want to understand how to persuade someone, listen to how they try to persuade you.

For example, one partner in a conversation might use concepts like power and tradition and authority to make a case, while the other might rely on science, statistics or fairness. One person might argue with tons of emotional insight, while someone else might bring up studies and peer reviews.

What they’re actually doing is talking about things in the way they like to hear them.

Seth Godin Nails It!

Effort in the face of near-certain rejection

Every day, we shoot for unlikely outcomes. We send out our resume, pitch our book, ask for a donation, swipe right on a social network…

There are two ways you can go:

ONE: Realize that the odds are against you, and go for volume. This means that you should spray and pray, putting as little effort into each interaction as possible, giving you the resources to have as many interactions as you can. This is hiring a virtual assistant to spam your contacts, or sending out 200 resumes, or pounding your email list again and again for orders. This is your reaction to an unfair world, in which you deal with the noise by making more noise.

TWO: Invest far more in each interaction than any rational human would advise. Do your homework. Invest more time in creating your offer than you expect the recipient will spend in replying to it. Don’t personalize, be personal. Create an imbalance of effort and care. Show up. Don’t spam, in any form.

The thing is, people can tell. And they’re significantly more likely to give you an interview, make a donation, answer your question or do that other thing you’re hoping for if you’ve signalled that you’re actually a caring, focused, generous human.

Two evidence-based healthy eating patterns: More Research; not News

https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/893184?src=wnl_mdplsnews_180302_mscpedit_wir&uac=254030MJ&impID=1572061&faf=1

‘Participants received individual, in-person counseling from nutritionists on how to adhere to each of the two evidence-based healthy eating patterns. The vegetarian diet excluded meat and fish but included dairy and eggs.’ (emphasis mine)

‘This was the first “intervention study that follows the principles of evidence-based medicine, in a general population at low risk of cardiovascular disease, that compared these two beneficial diets,” Sofi told theheart.org | Medscape Cardiology.’

A healthy diet should be “nutrient dense; rich in vegetables and fruits, whole grains, legumes and nuts; low in refined grains and commercially processed foods with added sugars, saturated fats, and sodium; sustainable; culturally relevant; and enjoyable.”

‘Both diets had similar low calories and consisted of 50% to 55% carbohydrates, 25% to 30% fat, and 15% to 20% protein.

The participants ate a similar number of servings of cereals, fruits and vegetables, potatoes, sweets, and olive oil on both diets, but on the vegetarian diet they ate more legumes, nuts, eggs, and dairy products, as well as flaxseed and avocado (to compensate for the lack of essential fatty acids from fish).

Both diets were similarly effective for weight loss. After 3 months, the participants lost a mean of 1.88 kg and 1.77 kg while on the vegetarian and Mediterranean diets, respectively.’

Although these diets should be investigated in larger studies in other populations, this research suggests that “a low-calorie healthy vegetarian or Mediterranean diet pattern may offer a possible solution to the ongoing challenges to prevent and manage obesity and cardiovascular diseases,” Anderson said.

Depression, Arginine & Nitric Oxide

I have talked about nitric oxide before, in connection with the JuicePlus+ product ‘Vineyard Blend’ capsules (they now come in Chewable too!!), and the grooves of your tongue – of all things.

This new Study takes in the amino acid link to the story.

The logic is the same as always: be careful when killing things, you might kill good things (mouthwashes in this case are what come to mind); and whole foods are the best way to get your nutrients (JuicePlus+ in this case comes to mind).

Not What Everyone Wants to Hear: Protein in the Diet

The message of the meat eaters has gotten through to the general public: when you ask about what they eat, they know the answers they are ‘supposed’ to give and mention meat, meat, meat. Paleo is popular.

And, while it may not be a fad, it misses the mark by a mile as to the healthiest way to eat. Here, the Blue Zone take on things lines up with recent research: eat vegetables first, then nuts, grains, seeds and beans – that is where to get the majority of your protein.

Not a popular message, but not a new one either. Many will prefer to follow the voices that tickle their ears and tempt their eyes – willingly hypnotized into choices that will cost them dearly down the road. Follow the ‘narrow path’, not the ‘broad road that leads to destruction’.
