Why operators are useful - Python-ideas -
Guido's thoughts on why operators (and operator overloading) are a useful feature in programming languages. Essentially, because it engages "system 1" brain processes not "system 2".

I want to clarify one important principle that people tend to overcomplicate.

"You become what you focus on."

This is very general, let's make it specific:

The dominant thoughts in your mind will eventually come to pass.

If you want to become wealthy, you must have wealth consciousness, first.

You have to think about wealth creation most of the time.


The more you focus on something, the more your subconscious mind thinks: "This is important."

And when you succeed to communicate to your subconscious that something is important to you, you will become obsessed (in a good way).

You will have a burning desire to study the topic more and take action.

Here's another way in which the subconscious mind works for you:

Every thought has a frequency, and when you focus on the same frequency most of the time; you attract similar ideas, people and opportunities which are on the same frequency.

You see Grant, when you are not consciously putting in the effort to focus on something, your focus will be all over the place.

You will not have a burning desire to take action, you won't see the right opportunities and you won't be on the right frequency.

It all starts with how long and consistently do you focus on something.

And to be honest, this principle is more life-changing than you think.

"So how do I start?"

If you want to succeed to achieve your dream body, for example, start by reading/ listening to audiobooks or other content about nutrition and different types of exercises.

Follow people on social media who have the results you want and see how they think about food and exercise.

Be around people who have the results you want and study their habits and beliefs.

Get obsessed about being healthy until you absolutely fall in love with the idea and think about it most of the time.

Repeat affirmations, like:

- I am healthy.
- I love eating high vibrational food.
- I enjoy exercising.
- I weight [desired weight goal] lbs.
- I am excited and motivated to train.

Brainwash yourself in a good way. Visualize yourself having your dream body, how good it feels to fit into your favorite clothes, people complimenting you on how good you look, being proud looking at your reflection in the mirror.

Think about it most of the time, visualize your desired outcome, get curious and fascinated about the topic and fall in love with it.

This is how you change yourself, and by changing yourself you will change your behavior to align with your goals.

You can do that with any topic.

Start today and change your life, literally.

Cheers to your success,

Deep brain stimulation of the internal capsule enhances human cognitive control and prefrontal cortex function | Nature Communications
Here, we show that VCVS DBS’ effect is explained in part by enhancement of PFC-driven cognitive control. DBS improves human subjects’ performance on a cognitive control task and increases theta (5–8Hz) oscillations in both medial and lateral PFC. The theta increase predicts subjects’ clinical outcomes.
