People who say that they are trying aren't trying at all.

This is the first of something I'm gonna call "Hot Take Monday" in this board.

Every Monday I'm going to start a thread that has a hot take sort of title and see what everyone in this community thinks. It'll be an abridged version of any given article that I plan to write in my blogs.

So I'm watching a video entitled "watch this if you can't get a gf," where a dude shows a tweet that says something along the lines of "I've been trying so hard to get a gf, but after failing a lot I feel like giving up and I feel like I will never get a gf ever."

The video can be found here:


The guy who is responding to the tweet is well meaning, but let's be honest. If this dude who is bitching about not getting a gf is tweeting him this, what makes any of us believe that he did only that ONE thing on twitter? Anyone who doesn't dick around on social media knows that he probably wasted another hour just scrolling, seeing what could pump his dopamine receptors a little bit before finding something else that could give him another excuse for not being able to find a gf.

As a former social media addict, I know that he did a little more than fire out that one tweet then leave.

Look, if I really want a gf, I know for a FACT that I need to invite at least 10 chicks out on dates per week, possibly more. And definitely more if I want these chicks to be attractive.

Is this dude who is saying that he feels like giving up doing that?

No.

I'd bet that he hasn't invited 10 chicks out on dates this month.

I'll be writing a full version of this on one of my blogs, and when I do, I'll post the link.

I'll be doing this every Monday to give myself an incentive to check in here every now and then.

Here's the article in my blog about last week's post.

https://www.keepclimbingforever.com/ive-done-everything/

This week's hot take: Chasing guarantees failure. If you want to make sure you don't succeed at something, develop so much emotional stake in it that it weighs on your mind constantly.

This way you can waste all kinds of time and energy worrying about doing it perfectly or doing it right.

Oh and don't forget to not do it this way you can keep wasting time "informing" yourself about it.

And when you do take action? Make sure that you feel nervous about the outcome constantly.

This is what it means to chase, and chasing guarantees failure.

I'll have my article ready for it shortly.
