Don't Tell Anybody

The Netflix Illuminati Secret

I read an interesting article that illustrated all the hidden categories on Netflix.

Meaning they have WAY more categories than they list.

Probably because there would just be too many to choose from, and too few people would use them.

One thing that’s been shown time and time again it that if we have too many choices, we get brain freeze.

In one marketing study a pasta sauce company sold MORE total jars of sauce when they only had three to choose from.

When they introduce two more, bringing the total up to five, people bought less.

They stood there, looking at five, and couldn’t choose, so they bought something else.

So it’s easy to understand why Netflix has those codes not out in the open.

Not that they’re trying to “hide” them, just that they figure they’d do more harm than good.

If you’re a fan of In-n-Out, you know they also have a “hidden” menu. Burgers you have to “know” about to be able to order them.

But when you do, it’s not like it’s a secret. The guy taking your order doesn’t wink at you like you’re some secret member of some secret club.

But for some reason, a lot of people LIKE the idea of these secret ideas, secret societies, secret string pullers that are PURPOSELY kept from us.

One reason is that if we KNOW about them, it makes us feel like insiders. Like we know stuff other people don’t.

And whether you admit it or not, it feels pretty good to have some “inside scoop” on how the world works.

This is one the POWERFUL reasons people gossip so much.

It feels GOOD, on a very deep level, to share “secret” information.

It’s like a demonstration of superior social insight or something.

But there’s another very INSIDIOUS reason we like believing in hidden societies and wizards behind curtains.

It gives us a ready EXCUSE for living up to our potential.

See, I WOULD be a kajillionare with a bunch of hot supermodel girlfriends, but the Illuminati is secretly keeping me down.

I’ll NEVER get rich because the system is RIGGED against me! So even if I tried, “they” would keep me down.

So why bother trying!

Well, maybe there ARE secret organizations, maybe there AREN’T. But it doesn’t really matter.

Because nobody cares about YOU more than YOU.

Nobody is more invested in your success than YOU.

Blaming secret societies is the flip side of “waiting” for some “authority” to “give you a chance.”

“THEY” (whoever they are lol) will ONLY “give” you a chance if it helps THEM.

If YOU want to succeed, (in anything), YOU need to figure out what to do.

Then get busy doing it.

The Best Tools For The Job

The Best Tools For Life

I’m a big fan of Clint Eastwood.

He’s made a lot of good movies, both as an actor and a director.

A fairly recent one was when he played some old guy that worked on cars.

And he developed a relationship with his neighbor, who he helped to become a “man.”

In one scene, the kid was looking in Clint’s garage.

And was AMAZED at the amount of tools he had.

One of the “becoming a man” things the “kid” had to do was to get his own tools.

The underlying theme was that “boys borrow tools, while men own tools.”

Of course, if you just go down to Home Depot and buy a bunch of tools so you can look cool, you’re missing the point.

The idea is not only owning tools, but tools that you use.

Use to build things.

Or fix things.

Movies, books and stories are great ways to convey eternal truths of the human condition.

I used to know this guy that worked in a machine shop.

This guy had an AWESOME set of tools. In this HUGE tool case. Bigger than most dressers.

He’d take his tools with him wherever he worked.

It was understood that if you had a machine shop, and you were hiring a well-trained machinist, he’d bring his own set of tools.

Same goes with skills.

When hiring managers want qualified people, they’d like the people to have a certain set of skills.

Rightly or wrongly, they don’t want spend lots of time and money training somebody, only to have them quiet a couple years later.

The bottom line is that the more responsibility you take acquiring whatever tools and skills you need, the better off you’ll be.

Most people don’t like to hear this.

They’d rather be told what to do. Trained how to do it. Be paid while it happens.

Those that are self-starters, that take at least SOME initiative, are generally going to do better.

Rightly or wrongly, that’s how it is.

Think about it from a hiring managers point of view. Who would you rather hire? Somebody that wants six months of on the job training, or somebody who’s ready to go, right then and there? Or somebody who will at least take an ACTIVE PART in the learning process?

The truth is that your life belongs to you. It’s your job to build it up, as much as you can, using whatever you can.

Nobody is going to do it for you.

Because everybody else is foremost worried about THEIR lives, not yours.

Luckily, there are plenty of tools that can help.
