    What is your thoughts on those tasks in the moment. Like when your hungry and no dishes. What goes wrong on the 'well its dish time'. Is your thought an 'I'll get to it later' Or something else perhaps? But I guess my post is how I'd handle a 'I'm so overwhelmed idk where to begin' that keeps popping up

    So your single and live alone right? You really don't need more dishes than that. 1 fork, 2 knives, 1 spoon + the previously listed. Means even in a full depressive episode this won't be an hour long slog to clean. And when something happens that you can't call uber eats for, like your 2 cups are dirty, maybe you had dairy or coffee and its caked onto the bottom of it. You are literally forced to clean them when its 2 am and you are woke up and are dehydrated. And when that happens it will take 30 seconds, and theres a 50% chance you'll look at the 3 other dishes and say [bleep] it now its 1 minute of work.

    I got a housemate who wont clean his dishes, so people just started putting them in his pantry on his food and he suddenly got way more motivated. Basically consequences help. Heres how to create some for yourself: If you want to do your dishes throw out 90% of them so you have 1 plate 2 cups and 2 pans and magically your dishes get done more frequently. Also yeah I've been up to 4am daily too shit sucks
  9. The 'feel' of the animations makes everything feel like its moving slower than AOE2HD. Also the units feel less distinct. I wouldn't quite say i can't tell them apart but in a busy black forest game its harder to tell than it used to be. Glad it exists but wish the colors were more saturated like aoe2
  10. had to quote your comment to see, the game he posted is Key to Heaven 2D. Definitely looks like a runescape fan game
  11. wonder how long it'll take to get the full front page filled with 200m players. Also what do you do at 200m? Try to do the equivalent of comp cape trimmed? (cwars armor, all pets, etc., clue scroll or bossing ranks?)

    Well then yeah definitely trust your instincts. If your problem is: "I cant bring myself to complete a task that I start" then I would say that is a real problem. I'm sure your therapist would agree and work with you to find out where that problem is coming from. I think phrasing it to describe the problem your facing won't bias her towards one cause or another. Be it focus, anxiety or otherwise.

    I mean I used it successfully to create a gym habit. The alarm was the trigger and the action would be that I always change into joggers and gym shoes and get in my car and drive to the gym and park in the parking lot. If I REALLY don't want to go to the gym I drive home. These days the change clothes and get in my car is complete auto pilot. I only begin considering if I wanna skip the gym today after I'm already driving there. The benefit of this system for me is its a lot easier to willpower myself in the gym doors when Im already clothed for the gym and driving there than if I was comfy in my room. I've also seen creative types use this when writing a novel for example. "I will write 100 words towards this novel no matter what, even if theyre trash and wont be included". Some days you absolutely will write your 100 words and toss them out and feel accomplished today. Other days you'll strike real inspiration and continue. But its definitely easier to find inspiration after you start writing. Again if your sure this wont work for you thats fine. If you havent tried it though I'd highly recommend it. Also not pushing you to do anything I'm mainly posting this as a testimonial for any other potential readers who were on the fence about it from my previous post...

    I dont think you need to plan so far ahead to get things done. Not sure what the specifics of your list making entails but I think your better off setting an alarm that goes off at 7pm (or whever your guaranteed free hour is at) and when that alarm is dinging do something on your list. Odds are you'll clear out half your lists if theyre mostly errands or creative chores (such as novel writing, code base, painting, etc.)

    I think if it seems like a career you'll enjoy better then switching over is a good idea. Just be aware of doing it for the money. Right now an enormous amount of investment is being funneled into software startups, some of which are just selling air with a cool app to display it like wework. Others like uber can only ever hope to be profitable if they establish a monopoly or near enough one. But on the whole most of these are regular businesses who have eccentric startup CEOs with the Steve Jobs persona and language, and a slight layer of software that makes investors believe its a tech company. Anyways I think most of the things that need to be monopolies to work will either eventually become them or fall apart, and while thats uncertain there will be lots of money flowing into tech companies so that investors can strike gold on being part of the one that does make it big. And down the line I think investors will be wary of the tech startup fad thats big right now which means software engineer wages that are inflated by Silicon Valley will start to decline, since I believe the whole economy has to pay software engineers more to prevent them from hopping ship and moving to the bay area. Not that the tech scene will ever really die, I read about database admins making 200k a year during the .com boom and here we are again in 2019. But be aware of where you want to specialize and the expected trajectory of your career.

    Yeah on the grand issues of workers rights, corporate monopolies, concentration camps in china, or climate change its not an individual effort. When I say individual responsibility I mean recognize what you can do to improve your life as best as you can.

    So I do subscribe to 'racial personal responsibility' in the sense that there is always a move we can do to improve some aspect of our lives we dislike. This isn't to diminish that some people really will have a harder time than others no matter what and depending on the metaphor here systemic barriers can prevent people from doing things entirely. But the reason why this is so useful as an antidote to learned helplessness is because people really underestimate how much agency they have in life. I'd be curious where you feel this falls flat though

    Muggi's PUA wasn't toxic. His attitude is if your unsatisfied with your sex life, go and work on being more conventionally attractive by working on things in your control. Such as lifting weights and having social hobbies. Or if your interesting a particular type of person, move cities if your home town doesn't have that. His attitude was radical individual responsibility. Which if someone has learned helplessness is incredibly useful. I would gladly give the same advice to anyone who isn't happy with their sex life or relationships

    I mean when you isolate yourself completely from the real world theres a real risk of becoming that. Kind of like a lite version of isis radicalization. He probably talks to virtually no one in person on a weekly basis and in between agility laps he probably lives on places like 8chan where he gets a community that finds his views to be normal. And then to stand out from that community and have his own identity he then gets more extreme than them. cyberbalkanization in a nut shell. Anyways if it makes you feel any better people like him tend to express views on their online persona. In a sense that Jebrim is this hugely opinionated, 'righteous', toxic person. While the John Smith behind his avatar is this quiet, awkward, loner who will be quiet and polite on thanksgiving dinners. The best thing for someone to do who is going down this path is to get socialized so that the John Smith he is in person doesn't become Jebrim when the computer is off. But unless hes ready to make that change himself its probably too late.
