Almost Impossible to Fail

When beginning some new undertaking, I ask myself: what would I have to do for it to be nearly impossible to fail. Certainty of success is an illusion, but by for any given goal it's possible to come up with some process that would nearly guarantee success.

For example: when starting SETT, I asked myself this question. I thought that there were lots of ways that blogging could be improved, but decided that if we could build something that got people more comments and more subscribers, we would be successful. Further, I figured that although I'm not the best programmer in the world, if I just worked every single day as hard as I could, I could eventually build something that would get results like that.

Sure enough, two years of hard work later, we have built a blogging platform that demonstrably gets people more subcribers and more comments. Whether we'll be ultimately successful or not is still in the air, but things are looking good and we continue to work very hard.

What would it take to make weight loss nearly impossible to fail at? Remove all unhealthy foods from your house, commit to only eating at home, plan every meal in advance, and make sure that you have a caloric deficit made up of only high quality foods. If you follow that protocol, it is impossible not to lose weight.

Jisho: Comprehensive Japanese lookup

On Learn Japanese With james0vince

Jisho(.org) is a really cool website for looking up Kanji, translating words and sentences or just finding out what stuff means pointed out to me by a guy in one of the facebook groups I am in called Alex.The Kanji by radicals section is awesome, it lets you pick a particular radical (Kanji that make up other Kanji) and it will give you a list of all the Kanji with that radical present in it (Well just the ones it has on file but that may be all of them for the little I have seen). When you click on the Kanji it tells you the meaning the on reading the kun reading the Furigana variants whether or not it is present in the Joyo Kanji words that begin and end with this Kanji use this in a sentence external links to further reading the stoke order and much much more.

You can also limit it to just the jouyou Kanji and make it only N5, N4, N3, N2 and N1 compliant Kanji (JLPT). This website is really powerful with tons of great features and a huge list of Kanji and compilation Kanji and vocab. The only thing I would say negative about this site is what I would say about almost every Japanese learning site with flashcards reps and listings (with the exception of memrise and quizlet) is that the user interface and user experience has had little to know work. But its not really about that. All in all great site, defiantly one to check out, a lot of information can be gleaned from this site and you can even get it on your IPhone.
