Nickantony Quach and “Skydio One”

12
00:02:09,679 –> 00:02:13,810
Greetings! This is the voice of Nickantony Quach

13
00:02:13,810 –> 00:02:19,155
coming to you from the capitol of Rhode Island.

14
00:02:25,895 –> 00:02:28,895
Journey; that means, self discovery.

15
00:02:31,248 –> 00:02:33,928
Follow me. Check out Rhode Island while looking for

16
00:02:34,072 –> 00:02:39,422
a better way to build your ideal self.

17
00:02:44,880 –> 00:02:51,796
During the 2005 speech at Stanford University

18
00:02:51,796 –> 00:02:55,398
Steve Jobs wanted us to focus on

19
00:02:55,398 –> 00:02:58,348
what you truly want to become.

20
00:02:58,348 –> 00:03:00,955
Everything else is secondary.

21
00:03:00,955 –> 00:03:03,585
In other words, according to Steve Jobs,

22
00:03:03,585 –> 00:03:07,151
nothing is as important as your ideal self.

23
00:03:19,748 –> 00:03:24,993
Since you’re here, take a look at the center of this state.

24
00:04:02,300 –> 00:04:07,700
You’re looking at the backyard of Rhode Island State House.

25
00:04:20,608 –> 00:04:25,043
Across the street is the main train station

26
00:04:46,230 –> 00:04:50,612
We are in the city of Providence

27
00:04:50,616 –> 00:04:55,068
Providence; that means, protective care.

28
00:05:06,616 –> 00:05:12,176
I am walking on the west side of the Providence Station.

29
00:05:22,310 –> 00:05:28,000
Look! The Bird scooter is back in the city.

30
00:05:28,880 –> 00:05:33,046
Can you tell, my Skydio-one is trying its best

31
00:05:33,046 –> 00:05:35,217
to fly through the narrow space

32
00:05:35,217 –> 00:05:37,164
and keep on filming me.

33
00:05:42,209 –> 00:05:46,220
Okay, let me give this a try.

34
00:05:55,240 –> 00:05:58,381
Other people can give it a single push

35
00:05:58,524 –> 00:06:00,399
to get this thing going.

36
00:06:00,399 –> 00:06:02,829
I’m still not used to it yet.

37
00:06:03,188 –> 00:06:05,262
After several attempts,

38
00:06:05,268 –> 00:06:07,570
I have to try a small circle

39
00:06:07,570 –> 00:06:10,232
before I feel ready to take off.

40
00:06:10,232 –> 00:06:14,908
Few days ago, a guy asked me what he should do…

41
00:06:14,908 –> 00:06:17,868
when his parents do not want him to marry

42
00:06:17,868 –> 00:06:20,298
someone, they feel, incompatible.

43
00:06:21,353 –> 00:06:25,580
If you want to have a good life, you have to avoid regret.

44
00:06:25,601 –> 00:06:28,720
There are only four ways to get there.

45
00:06:28,720 –> 00:06:32,713
One of them is to pass your judgement on others,

46
00:06:32,713 –> 00:06:36,329
to measure their behavior using your metrics.

47
00:06:36,839 –> 00:06:40,465
This rule applies to parents

48
00:06:40,465 –> 00:06:44,035
who always judge their children, and vice versa.

49
00:06:45,042 –> 00:06:50,451
This is also true among friends, colleagues, and everyone else.

50
00:06:53,250 –> 00:07:00,539
By the way, ahead of me is the shopping mall Providence Place.

51
00:07:32,300 –> 00:07:35,768
On the left is the shopping mall.

52
00:07:35,768 –> 00:07:38,527
On the right is the train station.

53
00:07:38,527 –> 00:07:41,351
Ahead is the State House.

54
00:07:41,351 –> 00:07:44,617
You’re looking at the center of Rhode Island.

55
00:08:01,655 –> 00:08:05,804
Another way leading to regret is counter-commitments.

56
00:08:05,804 –> 00:08:10,579
In other words, one of the four pathways to regret is…

57
00:08:10,579 –> 00:08:15,031
to never choose one of the two decisions you need to make.

58
00:08:20,730 –> 00:08:26,661
By the way, lawmakers come here to work after 4:00 PM.

59
00:08:26,661 –> 00:08:30,666
I don’t think the state is paying them enough for their work

60
00:08:30,704 –> 00:08:36,433
To make a living, many of them hold a regular job during the day.

61
00:08:41,634 –> 00:08:46,124
Should we take advice mostly from our parents,

62
00:08:46,424 –> 00:08:49,689
mostly from our friends,

63
00:08:49,785 –> 00:08:52,635
or mostly from others?

64
00:08:52,960 –> 00:08:54,966
What should we do

65
00:08:54,966 –> 00:08:58,205
when most of their advices are opposing against one another?

66
00:08:58,205 –> 00:09:03,646
When you have such questions, you are not sure of your ideal self.

67
00:09:04,925 –> 00:09:09,272
When you have such questions you do not know

68
00:09:09,272 –> 00:09:12,454
what you truly want to become

69
00:09:12,974 –> 00:09:15,617
When you have such questions,

70
00:09:15,617 –> 00:09:21,086
you need to conceive and develop further a personal philosophy.

71
00:09:21,536 –> 00:09:24,449
Helping you to achieve that is the main reason…

72
00:09:24,449 –> 00:09:26,797
why I am using this TV series

73
00:09:26,797 –> 00:09:28,940
to tell you about the new philosophy

74
00:09:28,966 –> 00:09:34,207
created right here in Providence, Rhode Island.

75
00:09:38,570 –> 00:09:42,535
What do you see when you look at a mirror?

76
00:09:42,535 –> 00:09:46,195
If you can only see yourself as a person,

77
00:09:46,195 –> 00:09:48,665
then you did not grasp

78
00:09:48,696 –> 00:09:51,366
the first lesson in this new philosophy.

79
00:09:52,030 –> 00:09:55,673
Next time, when you look in a mirror, tell yourself that

80
00:09:55,673 –> 00:09:59,632
you are looking at a complex business of the self

81
00:09:59,632 –> 00:10:05,267
and its mission is to conceive and develop further your ideal self

82
00:10:30,084 –> 00:10:34,671
Let’s go behind this tent and check out a city park.

83
00:10:34,671 –> 00:10:37,943
It is called Waterplace Park.

84
00:10:53,240 –> 00:10:55,391
Take a look at this.

85
00:10:55,464 –> 00:10:57,116
My Skydio-one hesitates

86
00:10:57,128 –> 00:11:01,782
because it is not yet sure how safe to fly through here.

87
00:11:11,657 –> 00:11:15,059
This is the first time I attempt to

88
00:11:15,066 –> 00:11:18,066
make a payment for usinng an electric scooter.

89
00:11:26,450 –> 00:11:29,830
Okay, follow me.

90
00:11:31,750 –> 00:11:35,446
Oh, wait. I did not finish making the payment.

91
00:11:36,936 –> 00:11:42,896
According to Thumos, also known as, PVD Philosophy,

92
00:11:42,896 –> 00:11:49,207
your ideal self and your present self are two different versions of the self.

93
00:11:50,173 –> 00:11:54,920
Your ideal self is the book you truly want to write.

94
00:11:55,057 –> 00:11:59,737
Your present self is the book you’ve already written.

95
00:11:59,992 –> 00:12:02,782
If you did not like the book,

96
00:12:02,782 –> 00:12:05,355
it is because you did not write it

97
00:12:05,355 –> 00:12:09,752
using the outline prepared for your ideal self

98
00:12:10,087 –> 00:12:15,640
In other words, in that case, how you lived your life before

99
00:12:15,640 –> 00:12:19,630
was not the way towards your ideal self.

100
00:12:19,885 –> 00:12:25,336
Otherwise, your present self should already be your ideal self.

101
00:12:25,733 –> 00:12:30,845
If you do not like what you got, change what you do.

102
00:12:51,463 –> 00:12:59,189
Along the river you can see many floating fire pits, also known as, braziers.

103
00:12:59,380 –> 00:13:03,968
Each is kept above the water by three balls.

104
00:13:03,968 –> 00:13:07,507
They are all tied down to a metal shaft.

105
00:13:08,071 –> 00:13:12,283
One end of the shaft is anchored to the bottom of the river.

106
00:13:12,283 –> 00:13:17,832
The other end is pushed up by the balls on high tide.

107
00:13:17,832 –> 00:13:21,290
All braziers are, about once a month,

108
00:13:21,290 –> 00:13:24,531
filled with firewood and lit up

109
00:13:24,531 –> 00:13:26,724
between dusk and midnight,

110
00:13:26,724 –> 00:13:30,485
in tune with romantic music, to entertain visitors

111
00:13:30,485 –> 00:13:34,606
from Providence and nearby cities

112
00:13:45,885 –> 00:13:51,176
Even when many do not know what they truly want to become,

113
00:13:51,176 –> 00:13:57,183
they all want to go as fast as possible towards their ideal self.

114
00:13:58,143 –> 00:14:01,843
Not knowing all their ideals in life…

115
00:14:01,843 –> 00:14:04,843
is not the biggest roadblock towards their ideal self .

116
00:14:05,546 –> 00:14:10,026
It is not knowing how to recognize…

117
00:14:10,026 –> 00:14:15,627
either a shortcut or a roadblock when one appears along the way.

118
00:14:21,760 –> 00:14:29,190
Don’t worry. Several episodes in this TV series will show you how.

119
00:14:45,490 –> 00:14:48,186
Keep following me

120
00:14:50,971 –> 00:14:55,021
Let’s leave the Waterplace Park behind us

121
00:14:55,072 –> 00:15:00,953
and go through under here to reach the center of Providence.

122
00:15:46,640 –> 00:15:52,600
The center of downtown is on the other side of this tunnel.

123
00:16:21,130 –> 00:16:25,254
This is an outdoor ice rink in the winter.

124
00:16:25,254 –> 00:16:29,504
The redbrick building is a hotel.

125
00:16:30,145 –> 00:16:34,982
Next to it on the left is the city hall

126
00:17:23,329 –> 00:17:28,930
This is a nice view of downtown Providence.

127
00:17:56,700 –> 00:18:02,143
While you are keeping your eyes on the ball in your life,

128
00:18:02,143 –> 00:18:07,608
we are producing more and more episodes for this TV series

129
00:18:07,608 –> 00:18:10,486
to help you along the way.

130
00:18:11,001 –> 00:18:15,511
Providence; that means, protective care.

131
00:18:15,723 –> 00:18:22,843
Hopefully, you’ll find PVD Philosophy to be your Providence.

132
00:19:01,782 –> 00:19:06,871
So you know, I’m a resident of Providence,

133
00:19:06,871 –> 00:19:12,211
in Rhode Island, the smallest state in the United States.

134
00:19:12,704 –> 00:19:17,308
This is where Mark Canny, a student in Psychology

135
00:19:17,308 –> 00:19:23,119
from the University of Rhode Island, and I worked together over two years

136
00:19:23,119 –> 00:19:26,209
to publish the first book of Thumos,

137
00:19:26,209 –> 00:19:32,038
which is the theoretical foundation for our TV series

138
00:19:32,038 –> 00:19:35,173
PVD Philosophy

139
00:19:55,480 –> 00:20:02,933
Remember, here is the first Thumos lesson, in PVD philosophy.

140
00:20:03,817 –> 00:20:08,705
When you look into a mirror, you should see yourself as

141
00:20:08,705 –> 00:20:12,009
a complex business of the self

142
00:20:12,009 –> 00:20:18,729
whose mission is to create and develop further your ideal self.

143
00:20:21,035 –> 00:20:26,954
More importantly, if you want to run your business of the self

144
00:20:26,954 –> 00:20:30,808
professionally and thus successfully,

145
00:20:30,808 –> 00:20:33,808
you must avoid doing it alone by yourself.

146
00:20:47,389 –> 00:20:50,833
Professionalism for a complex business

147
00:20:50,833 –> 00:20:54,772
requires at least two different minds

148
00:20:54,772 –> 00:20:58,703
capable of joint intellectual effort

149
00:20:58,703 –> 00:21:04,242
in this case, necessary for success in the making of your ideal self.

150
00:21:14,440 –> 00:21:18,629
If you do not know of anyone available

151
00:21:18,629 –> 00:21:21,014
to be your long-term mentor

152
00:21:21,014 –> 00:21:26,513
we hope this TV series, PVD philosophy

153
00:21:26,561 –> 00:21:30,541
gives you a temporary alternative

154
00:21:55,693 –> 00:21:58,693
Ri4CTV

155
00:22:03,976 –> 00:22:08,430
PVD Philosophy – Season 1 Episode 1

156
00:22:08,772 –> 00:22:12,494
“Center of RI”

157
00:22:12,494 –> 00:22:15,494
The End

158
00:22:16,957 –> 00:22:32,135
Vietnamese version of this episode is available on YouTube via the channel CTTMMD & Ri4CVN.
