Had an extremely interesting talk with my friend – Agharza Malikov, who is working at one of the oldest and biggest Wall Street banks of the United States. He is looking after the Capital Planning, which makes him an ideal source of wisdom to cover such wide and diverse topics of Capitalism and Free Market.
In this episode, we discussed how capitalism works, what are its main pillars, China’s fascinating economic growth, dangers of capitalism and many more interesting topics. Last but not least, Agha shared his suggestions with our listeners who want to learn more about capitalism and better navigate through this economic system.

Researchers have recently discovered that new genes in the central nervous system turn themselves on when an organism is placed (or places itself) in a new situation. These genes code for new proteins. These proteins are the building blocks for new structures in the brain. This means that a lot of you is still nascent, in the most physical of senses, and will not be called forth by stasis. You have to say something, go somewhere and do things to get turned on. And, if not, you remain incomplete, and life is too hard for anyone incomplete. (Dr Jordan B Peterson – 12 Rules For Life)
Although this statement is not directly related to traveling, I’m deeply convinced that traveling to new places is a great stimuli for your mind and brain. You explore new people, new locations, new cultures. When you explore boldly, when you voluntarily confront the unknown, you gather information and build your renewed self out of that information.
Take your time, travel to new places, see the world. Grow bigger and better, become a better version of yourself.
Imagine a person who start his day with a huge piece of cake, continues his day by constantly eating stuff during his job, and ends his day with equally unhealthy food. 14-16 hours a day, non-stop eating. How unhealthy it is, right?
Despite the fact that we don’t really live like that, we still feed our brain with countless crap throughout the day, and fail to see its negative impact on our cognitive abilities, ability of concentration and overall stamina.
In this episode, I talked about information overload, and how I overcome it.
In this episode of MindForce Podcast, I talked about 3 major philosophies that deeply impact mankind and guides our social and sometimes personal lives through:
Supernaturalism (or Premodernism), Modernism and Postmodernism. Feel free to check the episode below (or here) and share your thoughts with me:
Thinking is a cognitive activity you perform to process information, solve problems, make decisions, and create new ideas. You use your thinking ability and skills when you try to make sense of experiences, organize information. Or make plans and engage in other numerous exercises that impact your life one or another way. Although it sounds like thinking is a universal process our brains conduct for many needs, this perception is wrong. There are several types of thinking. To list some of them: Creative, Analytical, Concrete, Abstract, Divergent, Critical, Holistic etc. Any thinking type makes your brain tune into a specific setting that filters in the information you are receiving, analyze, process and produce an end result. How amazing is that, right? The process we generalize as “thinking” is in fact a huge mechanism comprising numerous settings we can use in our daily lives, experiment around and get desired results! That’s right, thinking as a subject is important, and interesting one. Although it sounds like we are engaged in the thinking process all day long, it is not always true. In fact, thinking is quite harder than we imagine. And most people don’t really engage in thinking process that often. George Bernard Shaw once remarked:
