RE: Half a mind too

in OCD13 days ago

I wonder what is better, a half brained idea, or a scatter-brained Idea? I'm good at scatter braining things. I think a half brained would be better. Scatter brained ideas are to fleeting leading form one idea to another idea and so-on ad infinitum so no idea truly comes to fruition.

I think one of the reasons I like longer content post is because of letter writing days, and historic letters. Where you/people would have a lot to write because it was so long in waiting on replies, (the transmittal times were were long). With quicker delivery of messages, things kept getting shorter and shorter, to now when people thing more than 120 characters are too much and everything can be said in a 6 word meme.

There is no anticipation of a letter arriving, of the family sitting around the kitchen table waiting for mom or dad to read grandmothers letter, to hear if we were mentioned, or what bonehead thing grandpa or uncle jerry did. I used to write letters a long long time ago, they were always long, filled mostly with meaningless stuff, but still they were fun.

Both are better than the no brainer ideas/decisions, which people often make nowadays. They let emotions (mostly fear) control (or highly influence) their decision making. They do not (or rarely) think. Especially when it comes to investing.

I wonder what it would be like to be completely devoid of the feeling of personal thought.

Some people have a hard time wrapping their head around research when it comes to investing. I have that problem, so I have found a few on Hive I trust that do some good research and seem to be making good decisions.

But yes at least having either is better than none.

Well ordered, but not very smart? :D

It also has something to do with the ability to concentrate and focus, as well as patience. People don't seem to have the will to invest in anything that takes them more than 15 minutes to get a result.

My in-laws put a short letter in our mailbox every week or two for our daughter. When they had the summer cottage, they would pick a wild flower, stick it to a card and cover it in contact, giving the name and a little information about it. She loves them and as a result, knows most of the wild flowers in Finland :)

Nice to see some still in the letter business and your daughter getting some every now and then, and with some knowledge attached.

One thing about all this lock-down foolishness is that it is teaching some people to take some time and do things correctly. Art, writing, and music are a few of the winners. My wife has seen a lot of build videos, and craft videos reviving old knowledge, the one yesterday about cement tiles was pretty good.

I remember my childhood days. Letters would come in from different friends and relatives.

On new year, we would write letters and give cards to all our friends talking about what we liked about each other and what irked us about others.
Those were true emotions there.

Those days were different. Now, on new year, all I get is forwarded messages "Happy new year". Lol, just formatlities.

I've seen a few random letter type post on Hive, I am thinking about doing one also, pretend stories, pretend people pretend letter. I do miss the letter writing days.

A letter to a friend about how your life is going on hive. Lol, that would be fun to read.

I will be waiting for that post if you decide to write it🤓

It would be to an imaginary friend, if I do write one, but it is an interesting thought, a letter to no one in-particular.

very nice great job !
