I think adding value is a good thing. When someone one brags that's not adding value, it's just wasted time. Adding value is teaching something or helping someone, which is a good thing.Also, extracting value is a negative thing, if you don't add something back. Extracting is taking something without reciprocating.

Med School Insiders, thank you so much for saving my life! I’ve been a really shitty student since middle school and up to college, right now I’m on my third year and it took alot of failed courses to get here. Yes I am that shitty. But because of weeks and weeks of learning from your videos and really taking them in, I’m now moving to 4th year and I’ve been getting Straight A’s lately for the first time in my life! I am in pre-med right now and because of you guys, I might just become a doctor some day! thank you so much! Love from 🇵🇭

Do you think journaling in the morning is as effective as journaling at night? I feel that I wouldn't be in a swayed emotional state or overrun with thoughts just after waking up, but rather just drowsy. Haven't tried this but open to starting, have recently made a habit of meditating and it's been great thus far.

Great video. I have faced situations where I know I, or my beliefs, are wrong and I know that but I can't accept that i'm wrong no matter how much evidence is against me.

What's interesting is in all of the points discussed here are beliefs that we hold that can be controlled via a level of objectivity. By questioning whether your belief or reasoning are based on empirical evidence supporting it is a great starting point to understanding whether your idea holds true, and not only should you seek evidence to affirm your belief, but seek to see if there's evidence that works against it.
