Self Reliance

Self Reliance

If you’re waiting for someone to give you the right training to change your job or do something radically different in life you will wait forever. 

It’s up to you to train yourself. It’s the only way to learn anything. So make the time for it.

Learning to Learn

Learning is not a rigidly formal system of precisely labeled steps.

Learning is messy. It’s trial and error. It’s failing and then failing again and then slowly figuring it out.

Give Up Magical Beliefs

You can’t borrow someone’s motivation. No matter how many books you read or chants you do you won’t become more motivated.

Motivation comes from inside. It comes from you and nowhere else.

Critical Thinking

It is the objective analysis and evaluation of an issue in order to form a judgment.

Question everything. You have to figure out the truth for yourself. If you were taught something was true, ask yourself why. How do you know? How can you prove it to yourself?

Step Into Someone Else’s Shoes

When you become absolutely fixed with your opinions or beliefs, you’re essentially frozen.

The smartest people know how little they know. They’re open to change.

"… it's important to reason from first principles rather than by analogy. The normal way we conduct our lives is we reason by analogy. We are doing this because it's like something else that was done, or it is like what other people are doing. But with first principles, you boil things down to the most fundamental truths and then reason up from there."

IDEAS

  • Plus: Find mentors, real (maybe someone from your work) or virtual (from books).  Learn from someone with more experience than you.
  • Minus: Explain what you are learning while you are learning it. Teach someone with less experience than you.
  • Equal: Find people who love what you love and spend as much time talking about this shared area as you can.
