20. The Power of Habit
21. Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion
Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion by Robert B. Cialdini
- The need for a sense of security. It is repeatedly mentioned in the book that people make decisions based on authority and the public, which is for simplicity (the need for efficiency). But it's also a need for a sense of security (to make lower-risk decisions). We can not be too simple, but in any case, it is impossible to feel insecure. At the same time, security also requires us to stick to our past decisions and beliefs (commitment and consistency) and to compete for resources we may lose (scarcity). In fact, the reasons covered in these chapters are governed by the common cause of security. In fact, security plays a very important role in psychology.
- Trust advice because you trust the suggester. We trust authority, the public, and the like for one reason, and it is because we trust them that we trust their advice and their actions. This is a biased judgment.
- Take the false as the true (the disguise cannot be seen through). The book does not distinguish between fake favors and real favors, fake promises and real promises. Those tricks exploit our inability to see through the camouflage (giveaways as favors, voided agreements as promises).
- To generalize with partiality (fuzzy understanding). Two and three are all because we made the mistake of generalizing. Even the title and clothing are used as proof of identity, etc. because there is some generalization in our understanding. Seeing this, you should know how many things that are actually the same in nature are treated as different things in the book.

24. The Four-Hour Work-Week
The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich by Timothy Ferriss
- No money or think that the money is too little;
- No time;
- No courage to change;
- No money - first of all, you should know that XX (such as international travel) can be done with very little money; secondly, learn to be financially independent,
- No time - this is the first time I've heard such a concept - separate income and time.
- Reduction of information intake
- Bold decentralization (including assignment and outsourcing, etc.);
- The popularization of the network makes the realization of a remote office, and a lot of space moving time is saved.
- No courage - try to think in a different way, live in a different way, and become brave and willing to change; I think besides practice, the key is how much you want to do something.
- Most of the outsourcing mentioned in the book is based on the lower price/exchange rate difference between developed and developing countries, which does not seem to us very much. Be applicable;
- This book is not about cultivating real wisdom, but more of a quick technique; -- such as how to use the loopholes in the rules to win the Sanda champion, how to use some opportunities to create your own Li title instead of Developing true competence;
- The author's repeated concept of mini-retirement and delayed gratification is not the same thing.
