16 Things I Wish They Had Taught Me in School

 Sometimes I wish that I had known some of things I have learned over the last few years a bit earlier. That perhaps there had been a self-improvement class in school. And in some ways there probably was.

Because some of these 16 things in this article a teacher probably spoke about in class. But I forgot about them or didn’t pay attention.

Some of it would probably not have stuck in my mind anyway. Or just been too far outside my reality at the time for me to accept and use.

But I still think that taking a few hours from all those German language classes and use them for some personal development classes would have been a good idea. Perhaps for just an hour a week in high school. It would probably be useful for many students and on a larger scale quite helpful for society in general.

So here are 16 things I wish they had taught me in school (or I just would like to have known about earlier).

1. The 80/20 rule.

This is one of the best ways to make better use of your time. The 80/20 rule – also known as The Pareto Principle – basically says that 80 percent of the value you will receive will come from 20 percent of your activities.

So a lot of what you do is probably not as useful or even necessary to do as you may think.

You can just drop – or vastly decrease the time you spend on – a whole bunch of things.

And if you do that you will have more time and energy to spend on those things that really brings your value, happiness, fulfilment and so on.

2. Parkinson’s Law.

You can do things quicker than you think. This law says that a task will expand in time and seeming complexity depending on the time you set aside for it. For instance, if you say to yourself that you’ll come up with a solution within a week then the problem will seem to grow more difficult and you’ll spend more and more time trying to come up with a solution.

So focus your time on finding solutions. Then just give yourself an hour (instead of the whole day) or the day (instead of the whole week) to solve the problem. This will force your mind to focus on solutions and action.

The result may not be exactly as perfect as if you had spent a week on the task, but as mentioned in the previous point, 80 percent of the value will come from 20 percent of the activities anyway. Or you may wind up with a better result because you haven’t overcomplicated or overpolished things. This will help you to get things done faster, to improve your ability to focus and give you more free time where you can totally focus on what’s in front of you instead of having some looming task creating stress in the back of your mind.

3. Batching.

Boring or routine tasks can create a lot of procrastination and low-level anxiety. One good way to get these things done quickly is to batch them. This means that you do them all in row. You will be able to do them quicker because there is less start-up time compared to if you spread them out. And when you are batching you become fully engaged in the tasks and more focused.

A batch of things to do in an hour today may look like this: Clean your desk / answer today’s emails / do the dishes / make three calls / write a grocery shopping list for tomorrow.

4. First, give value. Then, get value. Not the other way around.

This is a bit of a counter-intuitive thing. There is often an idea that someone should give us something or do something for us before we give back. The problem is just that a lot of people think that way. And so far less than possible is given either way.

If you want to increase the value you receive (money, love, kindness, opportunities etc.) you have to increase the value you give. Because over time you pretty much get what you give. It would perhaps be nice to get something for nothing. But that seldom happens.

5. Be proactive. Not reactive.

This one ties into the last point. If everyone is reactive then very little will get done. You could sit and wait and hope for someone else to do something. And that happens pretty often, but it can take a lot of time before it happens.

A more useful and beneficial way is to be proactive, to simply be the one to take the first practical action and get the ball rolling. This not only saves you a lot of waiting, but is also more pleasurable since you feel like you have the power over your life. Instead of feeling like you are run by a bunch of random outside forces.

6. Mistakes and failures are good.

When you are young you just try things and fail until you learn. As you grow a bit older, you learn from – for example – school to not make mistakes. And you try less and less things.

This may cause you to stop being proactive and to fall into a habit of being reactive, of waiting for someone else to do something. I mean, what if you actually tried something and failed? Perhaps people would laugh at you?

Perhaps they would. But when you experience that you soon realize that it is seldom the end of the world. And a lot of the time people don’t care that much. They have their own challenges and lives to worry about.

And success in life often comes from not giving up despite mistakes and failure. It comes from being persistent.

When you first learn to ride your bike you may fall over and over. Bruise a knee and cry a bit. But you get up, brush yourself off and get on the saddle again. And eventually you learn how to ride a bike. If you can just reconnect to your 5 year old self and do things that way – instead of giving up after a try/failure or two as grown-ups often do -you would probably experience a lot more interesting things, learn valuable lessons and have quite a bit more success.

7. Don’t beat yourself up.

Why do people give up after just few mistakes or failures? Well, I think one big reason is because they beat themselves up way too much. But it’s a kinda pointless habit. It only creates additional and unnecessary pain inside you and wastes your precious time. It’s best to try to drop this habit as much as you can.

8. Assume rapport.

Meeting new people is fun. But it can also induce nervousness. We all want to make a good first impression and not get stuck in an awkward conversation.

The best way to do this that I have found so far is to assume rapport. This means that you simply pretend that you are meeting one of your best friends. Then you start the interaction in that frame of mind instead of the nervous one.

This works surprisingly well. You can read more about it in How to Have Less Awkward Conversations: Assuming Rapport.

9. Use your reticular activation system to your advantage.

I learned about the organs and the inner workings of the body in class but nobody told me about the reticular activation system. And that’s a shame, because this is one of the most powerful things you can learn about. What this focus system, this R.A.S, in your mind does is to allow you to see in your surroundings what you focus your thoughts on. It pretty much always helps you to find what you are looking for.

So you really need to focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want. And keep that focus steady.

Setting goals and reviewing them frequently is one way to keep your focus on what’s important and to help you take action that will move your closer to toward where you want to go. Another way is just to use external reminders such as pieces of paper where you can, for instance, write down a few things from this post like “Give value” or “Assume rapport”. And then you can put those pieces of paper on your fridge, bathroom mirror etc.

10. Your attitude changes your reality.

We have all heard that you should keep a positive attitude or perhaps that “you need to change your attitude!”. That is a nice piece of advice I suppose, but without any more reasons to do it is very easy to just brush such suggestions off and continue using your old attitude.

But the thing that I’ve discovered the last few years is that if you change your attitude, you actually change your reality. When you for instance use a positive attitude instead of a negative one you start to see things and viewpoints that were invisible to you before. You may think to yourself “why haven’t I thought about things this way before?”.

When you change your attitude you change what you focus on. And all things in your world can now be seen in a different light.

This is of course very similar to the previous tip but I wanted to give this one some space. Because changing your attitude can create an insane change in your world. It might not look like it if you just think about it though. Pessimism might seem like realism. But that is mostly because your R.A.S is tuned into seeing all the negative things you want to see. And that makes you “right” a lot of the time. And perhaps that is what you want. On the other hand, there are more fun things than being right all the time.

If you try changing your attitude for real – instead of analyzing such a concept in your mind – you’ll be surprised.

You may want to read more about this topic in Take the Positivity Challenge!

11. Gratitude is a simple way to make yourself feel happy.

Sure, I was probably told that I should be grateful. Perhaps because it was the right thing to do or just something I should do. But if someone had said that feeling grateful about things for minute or two is a great way to turn a negative mood into a happy one I would probably have practised gratitude more. It is also a good tool for keeping your attitude up and focusing on the right things. And to make other people happy. Which tends to make you even happier, since emotions are contagious.

12. Don’t compare yourself to others.

The ego wants to compare. It wants to find reasons for you to feel good about yourself (“I’ve got a new bike!”). But by doing that it also becomes very hard to not compare yourself to others who have more than you (“Oh no, Bill has bought an even nicer bike!”). And so you don’t feel so good about yourself once again. If you compare yourself to others you let the world around control how you feel about yourself. It always becomes a rollercoaster of emotions.

A more useful way is to compare yourself to yourself. To look at how far you have come, what you have accomplished and how you have grown. It may not sound like that much fun but in the long run it brings a lot more inner stillness, personal power and positive feelings.

13. 80-90% of what you fear will happen never really come into reality.

This is a big one. Most things you fear will happen never happen. They are just monsters in your own mind. And if they happen then they will most often not be as painful or bad as you expected. Worrying is most often just a waste of time.

This is of course easy to say. But if you remind yourself of how little of what you feared throughout your life that has actually happened you can start to release more and more of that worry from your thoughts.

14. Don’t take things too seriously.

It’s very easy to get wrapped up in things. But most of the things you worry about never come into reality. And what may seem like a big problem right now you may not even remember in three years.

Taking yourself, your thoughts and your emotions too seriously often just seems to lead to more unnecessary suffering. So relax a little more and lighten up a bit. It can do wonders for your mood and as an extension of that; your life.

15. Write everything down.

If your memory is anything like mine then it’s like a leaking bucket. Many of your good or great ideas may be lost forever if you don’t make a habit of writing things down. This is also a good way to keep your focus on what you want. Read more about it in Why You Should Write Things Down.

16. There are opportunities in just about every experience.

In pretty much any experience there are always things that you can learn from it and things within the experience that can help you to grow. Negative experiences, mistakes and failure can sometimes be even better than a success because it teaches you something totally new, something that another success could never teach you.

Whenever you have a negative experience ask yourself: where is the opportunity in this? What is good about this situation? One negative experience can – with time – help you create many very positive experiences.

What do you wish someone had told you in school or you had just learned earlier in life?

Download BHU's 'Har Har Mahadev' App Blocks Porn On Campus, Plays Bhajan When Someone Searches Adult Content

A neurologist at the Institute of Medical Sciences of Banaras Hindu University (IMS-BHU) and his team have developed an application to block unwanted sites, especially pornographic ones, to do away with the onslaught of trash and misinformation on the internet.

Click here to download the application

Named 'Har Har Mahadev', the application is designed to block pornography, violence and vulgar content circulating on the world wide web.

Once downloaded and registered, the app will play devotional songs whenever the user attempts to open an 'inappropriate' site. "We have developed the website blocker and internet filtering services, so one can surf safely without any fear of opening adult or objectionable sites," said Dr Vijay Nath Mishra of Institute of Medical Sciences- Banaras Hindu University's neurology department.
The app 'Har Har Mahadev' took six months to complete and can block about 3,800 identified sites, he added.

"We will update it further as more and more unwanted sites are cropping up daily," said Mishra.

Why aren't power lines in the US burried underground so that everyone doesn't lose power during hurricanes and other natural disasters?

Cost is the major reason why electric lines are not buried.Here are the details:

The first is initial installation. Most underground cable at distribution voltage (4kV to about 35kV but that definition fluctuates) is installed in buried conduit, and basically every construction company can tell you that digging sucks. Even with a geotechnical report, some areas of the country are a total crapshoot as to what you'll find 3' down. In parts of VA it might be the water table, in parts of ID it might be lava rock. Usually the ground is either too soft and the hole/ trench doesn't hold up, or too hard and it takes forever to dig. Either way that means money.

Digging also isn't very pretty, and most places have lots of rules regarding how you dig, when you dig, what you do with the spoils (dirt you dig up) and what you have to do to clean up afterwards. If you dig in the middle of nowhere this isn't bad, but God forbid you're in the rich part of town. Then on top of all this money you spent following the rules you now have to spend another big pile fixing landscaping (ya know that bush you dug up? The fourth one from the end that was almost dead? Yea, that was my great great grandmother's golden bush of infinite happiness! You owe me $5000 for it! No an almost identical bush isn't good enough!).

Not too mention underground conductor is more expensive. The conduit it goes into is an added cost, but it pales in comparison to the price difference between underground wire and what you'd spend on overhead wire for a similar amount of current. Additionally this wire has to hold voltage that is desperately trying to release itself into the surrounding earth, so if you nick it when pulling it in, or damage the insulating jacket in some other way, congratulations you get to pull that wire in again! Because that electricity will arc that gap and the line won't work.

If that happens later on down the road, it's also much more difficult to diagnose and fix. With an overhead line, you can usually tell what's wrong (hint: what parts that should be in the air are now on the ground?) But with underground lines you have to drag out the thumper.

The thumper is a piece of equipment that applies a voltage to a line. The voltage goes higher and higher until it arcs through damaged insulation and makes a thump sound underground. Then a worker has to locate the fault (damaged piece of line) by walking the route of the line and listening for the thump. Now newer equipment is fancy enough to help you get pretty close without much work, but there's still a lot of experience and good luck to finding the fault quickly. By the time you add in the cost of the thumper, the crew's time to actually dig up and fix the line, and the outage time for the customers being fed, you're taking a pretty penny.

Not to mention, mother earth is not kind. If you go to more remote places you can find lines that have been around 60 or 70 years. Not going to find many underground lines that old.
There's also the fact that adding capacity to overhead lines is easier in most cases, but that's a bit too nuanced for this post.

And finally, electricity is pretty easy to move overhead. Water, oil, gas, and sewage are not. In most places the ground where it would make sense to bury power lines is crowded and most of those companies don't want high voltage anywhere near their stuff. Hell they don't even want the pole in the ground because most of the poles are grounded. But any company that will even let you bury near them is going to, at minimum, want an inspector on site while you build, and you get to pay his wages while he's out there. Most companies would rather take you to court than let you build though.
So most of the time, high lines are where it's at!

Edit: All of my experience is in North America. I don't know why Europe manages to get everything underground, but as I mention below I expect its a combination of denser urban areas and government regulation. Some places in the US are experimenting with that, but others probably won't for quite some time.

/u/thekbob linked a great study here:
That goes a lot more in depth about why underground electric utilities are better at some things, and still unlikely to catch on in the states.
Also, I may have given enough information for some really dedicated soul to deduce who I work for. For the record I am not an official spokesperson for any company, any opinions expressed here or in other comments are solely my own and do not reflect the opinions of any other entity.

Why does your body feel physically ill after experiencing emotional trauma?

The limbic system is responsible for this feeling! The limbic system is the emotion and memory part of your brain, and is hugely important for how you experience and perceive things. The limbic system has a direct impact on the autonomic nervous system. If you perceive that you're in a calm situation, your limbic system will impact the rest of your brain, and thus the rest of your body, to make your body act as if it's in a calm situation. The hypothalamus is also part of the limbic system and plays a role in your body maintaining chemical balances. It is also a reason why you feel physically ill.
To give a little bit more detail on a few things:
The sympathetic portion of the autonomic nervous system is the the part of your body that makes your heart beat faster, makes you breathe faster, makes your pupils dilate, makes you sweat, and makes you stop digesting food (your blood is diverted to your muscles so you can run if needed). It is the fight of flight response in your body and has a cascade effect on the rest of your body. If your limbic system is going crazy with emotional trauma, it'll make your sympathetic nervous system ramp up as well. If you just ate and your body all of the sudden stops digesting food, you may throw up.
The limbic system (emotion and memory area of the brain) also directly impacts almost every other part of your brain. The limbic system is smack dab in the center of your brain, thus connects to everything. This is why being in a really intense situation can change how you feel physically and how you even perceive (time slowing down) a situation. One of the important parts of the limbic system is the hypothalamus.
The hypothalamus plays a huge role in maintaining your body's "natural state". If you need food, your hypothalamus is the part that makes you feel hungry. The hypothalamus is part of the limbic system, so it is under these same controls of emotion. Under a really stressful situation, your hypothalamus will react with the release of cortisol, which will affect your blood sugar and can make you feel sick.
Now, all of this kind of paints the limbic system as the bad guy, but that's not really true. The limbic system is also what integrates emotion into what we experience when something is positive. It's why your mom's cooking tastes better if you have fond memories of her. It's what makes your heart flutter when you're in love. It's what makes you remember things. Heck, it is even the reason why a truck horn can go off in the dead of night and you won't wake up, but when someone whispers your name you will.

Why can people walk many miles without discomfort, but when they stand for more than 15 minutes or so, they get uncomfortable?

Basically, when you are standing, blood flow slows and "pools" in your legs due to gravity. But when you walk, your muscles contract and push the blood in your veins and vessels back up into your upper body.
On the side note, seasoned military personnels are able to stand at ease for long periods of time because they are actually swaying back and forth very slowly in micro-movements to contract their muscles and relieve the tingling and numb sensation you get when you keep standing for long periods of time.
Your leg veins have one way valves in them. They work when the skeletal muscles around them contract and release.
When you are walking around, the flexion/relaxation of the walking muscles are literally pumping the blood back to your torso. When you are standing still, you aren't getting that pumping action naturally. You could flex/release your legs intentionally, while standing, but it's not nearly as effective as walking is.

How after 5000 years of humanity surviving off of bread do we have so many people within the last decade who are entirely allergic to gluten(wheat)?

We don't know. There are a number of theories about this. To clarify, while the increase may be exaggerated by people who falsely claim intolerance when they probably have other health issues (or are hypochondriacs), there is actually an increase in people with diagnosable gluten intolerance. And gluten intolerance is different than celiac. I'm taking here about gluten intolerance. Some possible causes include changes in the gut microbiome and changes in how we process and make bread.
Changes in the gut microbiome are a likely cause/contributor but the causes and effects of that are just stating to be understood, and barely. So I won't go into that too much, but if anyone has questions I may be able to answer.

On the processing side, one interesting theory is that the germ of wheat helps us process the gluten in some way. It has lots of nutrients, vitamins, fats, etc. Modern wheat flour (even most whole grain stuff) is made by separating the germ from the rest of the wheat first, then processing. This causes the flour to keep longer but removes all those nutrients. This is why flour/cereals need to be fortified. However, we only fortify with the vitamins and minerals for which we notice obvious deficiencies. So it's entirely feasible that we are neglecting to add something back into the flour that helps SOME people not develop gluten intolerance. This may be via some immune response or due to changes caused in the gut microbe (e.g. we are no longer giving some micronutrients to a specific bacteria in our gut so it dies out. That bacteria helped us process gluten or a byproduct and without its help we get sick). It's also possible that our body just needs some nutrient in the germ to process gluten efficiently. We really just don't know.

What is it about electricity that makes it so dangerous to the human body?

Your body uses electrical signals in its nerves.The major way people die from electric shocks is if it goes through the heart. Your heart is a finely tuned machine that does not appreciate a sudden external signal saying contract all muscles. If you're lucky, your heart resumes beating with its normal pattern. If not, hope someone around knows CPR.

Incidentally, this is also a bugbear for medical shows - the device with the paddles and the shouting clear doesn't restart the heart, it stops the heart and is used when the rhythm has gone wrong (called fibrillation). The heart can then restart itself with the correct rhythm (hopefully).

AC is more dangerous than DC.The fluctuation rate of 60 Hz makes the currents particularly suited to screwing up the nerves that regulate heartbeat. This can cause a heart to flutter instead of beating normally, which kills a person quickly. That's why standard AC wall current is especially dangerous to humans. The threat of AC current varies widely by its frequency, whereas DC simply becomes more dangerous as the voltage and current levels increase.

23 Reasons Everyone Should Love Deadpool

1. He’s a master of breaking the fourth wall.

Deadpool’s most notorious trait is his tendency to break the fourth wall in his books. Not many comic book characters know they exist within a work of fiction, but Deadpool thrives on it. Every now and then he’ll drop a comment to the artist or writer working on his book, or reference the idea that he’s a fictional character like in the panel above, much to the confusion of whoever happens to be nearby.

2. He can be pretty heroic when he needs to be.

Deadpool can be a pretty complex character. His heroic deeds are often few and far between, but now and then he does something so selfless and touching that it cements his status as a hero. When Archangel was on the brink of death, Deadpool nursed him back to health by cutting off chunks of his own flesh. Inspiring.

3. He’s actually pretty clever.

Daredevil is a pretty perceptive guy, so pulling the wool over his eyes (ha.), even if it’s just for a moment, is actually kind of impressive. If Deadpool was a little more dastardly, or Daredevil was a little more not-a-good-guy, that brief moment would have been all it took to finish the fight.

4. He never takes himself too seriously.

Deadpool’s main power, his accelerated healing factor, gives him the ability to bounce back from any injury in no time. Oh, except for the cancer he had when his powers were given to him by the Weapon X program. His existing tumor spread across his whole body, leaving him horribly disfigured. If any other Marvel character came down with such a horrible ailment, it’d be a tragedy. For Deadpool, it’s just another punchline.

5. He also never takes anyone else too seriously.

Tony Stark’s alcoholism is no secret in the Marvel universe, but it’s still a taboo subject for most. Not so for Deadpool. In Deadpool #7, the character lampoons Tony Stark by recreating the memorable “Demon in a Bottle” storyline, including this moment where he throws on the Iron Man armor and proceeds to get knock-down drunk.

6. He gets along with everybody/nobody.

Everyone loves the class clown, and Deadpool is definitely the class clown of the Marvel universe. Unfortunately, doing that much ball-busting has made Deadpool his fair share of enemies too.

7. He’s a nerd.

He watched Star Trek! He’s just like you and me.

8. He doesn’t discriminate.

One of Deadpool’s most refreshing aspects is that he’s not really aligned with any particular faction in the Marvel universe. He’s not really a good guy, and he’s not really a bad guy, he’s just a guy who like to kill people and get paid while he does it. Some of his most interesting moments happen when he is forced to confront his heroism and loose ethics.

9. He’s made the most of his Liefeld pockets and pouches.

Deadpool was created by one of the industry’s most polarizing artists, Rob Liefeld. One of Liefeld’s signature touches is his excessive use of oversized pouches and shoulder pads on his characters. There has always been a lot of speculation about what Liefeld’s characters keep in all those pouches, and thanks to Daredevil’s heightened sense of smell, we finally have an answer.

10. He stands up for what he believes in.

Listen, this is an easy, obvious joke. But the important thing to take away from this is that Deadpool stands up for his beliefs, even if his beliefs are just that the Star Wars prequels sucked. Not many superheroes have such unwavering, unforgiving convictions.

11. He’s not easily intimidated.

I mean, it’s hard to be intimidated when you’ve got Spider-Man standing next to you, but Deadpool doesn’t let baddies looming over him get the better of him. No moment is too tense for a well-timed Steve Miller reference.

12. He even impresses his enemies.

First things first, that’s not actually Hawkeye. It’s Bullseye. Second thing to note, Bullseye never misses his targets. So it’s pretty impressive that Deadpool managed to evade one of Bullseye’s missiles. Just ask Bullseye.

13. He’s an obvious cosplaying choice.

Cosplaying as Deadpool gives you free license to go to a con and screw around with impunity. If you’re looking to be the life of the party at any cosplaying event, look no further than Deadpool.

14. He’s not afraid of anyone. Not even the Avengers.

Who else has the balls to steal multi-million dollar jets from Tony Stark?

15. He knows how to make the best of a bad situation.

When Deadpool accidentally set a live elephant on fire while trying to defeat the ghost of Teddy Roosevelt (you read that correctly), he did what anyone who accidentally set a live elephant on fire while trying to defeat the ghost of Teddy Roosevelt would do and made fun of the occasion.

16. He can find his way out of any bad situation.

Even if he has to shoot a civilian in the leg, Deadpool can wiggle his way out of any situation. When Daredevil had him by the short hairs, he used his gun and quick thinking to get away without Daredevil chasing after him. Genius.

17. His references (while childish) are really contemporary.

There’s been a lot of speculation about whether or not Deadpool is referencing the 4chan definition of traps in this clip from Ultimate Spider-Man, but seeing as it’s a show for kids, it’d be pretty edgy if it was.

18. There’s no enemy to big or powerful for him.

Not many heroes have gotten the better of Galactus, who actually eats entire planets just for fun, but after just a brief stint as Galactus’ herald, Deadpool got the better of the cosmic entity by just talking a ton. The Fantastic Four could barely even beat this dude, and Deadpool pretty much did it without throwing a punch.

19. His sense of humor is infectious.

Cable and Deadpool are old buddies, but Cable isn’t exactly known for his terrific sense of humor. When you’re from the post-apocalyptic future and you’re trying to save everyone you know and love from certain destruction, it’s hard to maintain a cheery outlook. Somehow, though, Deadpool brings out the best in Cable, and even manages to get him to crack a few jokes himself.

20. He doesn’t aim too high.

Most heroes waste their time on unobtainable goals such as world peace, but Deadpool keeps things simple. He knows what he likes, and he pursues those things. It’s just that simple.

21. He makes references we all get.

Deadpool is a relatively young character, especially in comparison to characters like the X-Men and Spider-Man, so it’s only natural that he makes references to things like viral videos of World of Warcraft. There aren’t many characters as relatable as Deadpool.

22. He can turn anything into a joke.

Most people would be mortified to come across an obvious homicide, but Deadpool just turns it into an opportunity to make jokes. For nobody in particular. Maybe he’s using his fourth-wall-breaking perception to make jokes for us, but it’s nice to think that he’s just taking a moment to quietly make jokes for just himself.

23. He’s not shallow.

Then again, it’s tough to be shallow when you look (and smell, if you believe Daredevil) like a horrifying living corpse.
