Train with Real Swords :

Train with Real Swords

You're still a free user. You're still outside our Dojo. Yet, as the great Konosuke Matsushita ( founder of Panasonic, father of business and management in Japan) once remarked, you won't be learning well if you practice only with wooden swords.
Be serious. Go back if you haven't done the previous steps.
  1. If you are not clear about your ambitions, then you search Grace Kelly/Tom Cruise but will end up with Kim Khardashian/ Arnold the Terminator.
  2. If you are not clear about your strengths, then you Justin Bieber will try to challenge Einstein in Physics, or you Einstein will try to out-pace Usain Bolt.
Be serious.
If you can't pretend your life and job depend on our exercises, do go back. Please do the previous steps. Or come back later when you can be more serious.

Our Approach Is Simple

Our services all come down to just five groups:
  1. Finding the potential employers
  2. Moving better to the potential employers
  3. Selling your services better to the potential employers
  4. Making yourself a better product : Learning
  5. Making yourself a better product : Design, in particular mixing, matching and marshalling your mediocre skills to magnificent, magical results
All these services will be available to free users soon.

Our Approach Is Sturdy and Robust

  1. Compasses
  2. Binoculars
  3. Walking sticks and sensors too

Interests in Details Help Your Job Hunt

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" and "Manual of The Warrior of Light" by Paulo Coelho also share such ideas. Details do break deadlocks sometimes.

If you have to charge ten times as much:

This is a provocative question for marketers by Seth Godin. The source article is This is Marketing

Here is our's attempt to answer this question:

Why We're Worth 10 Times as Much

To your relief, your dream has come true : "You will reach your true potential in this life."
We make this promise. Not by magic. But by your own DIY research and wisdom.
Once you clearly know
  1. What you truly want to achieve
  2. What you can do: long-term, short-term, right-now-this-hour-term
  1. You will act. That is, you come to have agency.
  2. This action will have extra punch and power and venom because you have conviction because you've seen precedents and examples with your own eyes. That is, you come to have self-efficacy.
  1. English majors usually become burger-flippers (credit: Dilbert cartoon strips and "What Color is Your Parachute?").
    But once you've seen others with good written English and good math become successful programmers, the way you attend your coding classes won't stay the same.
  2. Previously guys with a bit of marketing, a bit of design and a bit of coding and a bit of many things else, got no where. You have been one of them.
    Now these same guys become hot as "growth hackers." When you tell an interviewer that you are a growth hacker, your voice will carry a convincing, compelling tone.
10 times more
"Horizontal" means from outside one's industry.( credit: "Marketing 4.0"), or from outside one's expertise (credit : "Rules for the Radical")
Can Do Pi! You who can , will do your life's work with the force of faith, and get better results.
For that, aren't we worth US$ 500 or more?

Do a Project and Get a Job

Sometimes, a project is your fastest, surest ticket to a good job.

Sometimes It's Easy: Physics Nobel Prize 1965

Sometimes It's Easy: Physics Nobel Prize 1965

So I got this new attitude. ... I'm going to play with physics, whenever I want to, without worrying about any importance whatsoever.

Within a week I was in the cafeteria and some guy, fooling around, throws a plate in the air. As the plate went up in the air I saw it wobble, and I noticed the red medallion of Cornell on the plate going around. It was pretty obvious to me that the medallion went around faster than the wobbling. I had nothing to do, so I start to figure out the motion of the rotating plate. I discover that when the angle is very slight, the medallion rotates twice as fast as the wobble rate - two to one [Note: Feynman mis-remembers here---the factor of 2 is the other way]. It came out of a complicated equation! Then I thought, ``Is there some way I can see in a more fundamental way, by looking at the forces or the dynamics, why it's two to one?'' ...

 I went on to work out equations of wobbles. Then I thought about how electron orbits start to move in relativity. Then there's the Dirac Equation in electrodynamics. And then quantum electrodynamics. And before I knew it (it was a very short time) I was ``playing'' - working, really - with the same old problem that I loved so much, that I had stopped working on when I went to Los Alamos: my thesis-type problems; all those old-fashioned, wonderful things. It was effortless. It was easy to play with these things. It was like uncorking a bottle: Everything flowed out effortlessly. ...

The diagrams and the whole business that I got the Nobel Prize for came from that piddling around with the wobbling plate.
