Divert the river

   In 49 BC, when Caesar confronted 90,000 enemy troops, the weather suddenly changed.

  The Mediterranean region, which was supposed to be a dry season, rarely experienced heavy rains. If it is a weekday, heavy rain is not a big problem for the Caesar army, who are used to fighting in the field. But this time the situation is different, because Caesar's 30,000 troops are right in the delta between the two rivers.

  Days of heavy rain caused the river to soar. Caesar’s army was trapped in an island surrounded by the river, unable to even bring in food.

  Now, there is not much food left in the army, but the torrential rain continues to rages for many days, and there is no sign of stopping at all. If this continues, Caesar’s 30,000 soldiers will have to starve to death before fighting.

  On the other side of the river were three times their own enemy army. They ate bread and laughed at the besieged Caesar army. Caesar has entered "a desperate situation with nowhere to go". The commander of the enemy army has even sent someone to deliver a good news to the capital.

  In military history, there are countless cases of battle failures due to weather. Just when everyone thought that Caesar was going to fail, Caesar suddenly came up with a wonderful way.

  He asked the soldiers to secretly dig new ditches in the upper reaches of the swift river to direct the water to the enemy. As a result, the river course changed, and not only the survival dilemma of 30,000 people was broken, but also 90,000 enemy troops were besieged by heavy rains and floods. You know, the problem of 90,000 people being trapped to eat can be much more troublesome than that of 30,000 people.

  With this ingenious strategy, Caesar let the goddess of victory stand on his side. Most people accept the dilemma caused by the rainstorm, just thinking about how to deal with it. Caesar thinks from the source of the predicament-although I can't control the rainstorm, I can change the direction of the flood. Why must the problem caused by the rainstorm be mine?

Moroccan football team: "The most familiar stranger"

   When I was still in college ten years ago, I led a sightseeing group of more than 30 Moroccan students. Before meeting them, my general impression of the Moroccans was that they are from North Africa but closer to the Arab world. They have religious beliefs, are used to worship, and are inextricably linked with France.   When I saw the real person, I realized that the North Africans in front of me were actually a group of children playing with each other and having fun in time. They were about the same age as me at the time. I have all kinds of nicknames and nicknames. During the process of taking them to Badaling, the Summer Palace and Houhai, two classmates and I, together with more than 30 Moroccan students, realized "cultural integration" and "world unity" in the small group to some extent.   During the World Cup in Qatar, I was surprised to find that the little-known Morocco team, which was eliminated in the group stage of the last World Cup, after miraculou

Zeigarnik effect

  As a freelancer, you have to fight procrastination every day. "I've made up my mind many times, but I just can't change it. Is it because I'm slow or slow?". In fact, many procrastinations are irrational. Many obstructions are imagined by myself. So distract, postpone, avoid confrontation. It's cool to procrastinate, and it's cool to procrastinate all the time, so I can't do it. Concentration is also related to physical strength. When the physical strength is exhausted, it is even more difficult to concentrate. You’ll tell yourself: I’m too tired to do this—okay, another perfect procrastination.   In 1927, Bruma Zeigarnik's senior research found that people are more likely to care about unfinished and interrupted work than completed work. This is the Zeigarnik effect. For example, we often don't care much about what we have got, but we will especially cherish what we have worked hard but haven't got. Therefore, the TV series will tell you
