Key Ideas

Health

Eat well. Move often. Go easy on the vices. Take care of your mind and body, and your spirit will require less heavy lifting.

Joy

You find it in moments of action and novelty, connection and capability. When you create, learn, experience and share. 

It's the thrill and happiness that requires no reward, no validation to receive. 

Peace

This is your inner calm.

You can find it in nature, but you also nurture it yourself: by tidying up, taking care of your mind and your heart, saying thank you, forgiving others, accepting what has passed and who you are, staying genuinely true to yourself and aligning with your moral standards. 

Communion

It is an unbroken, multi-nodal dialogue between you and your surroundings.

You build it by valuing life, cultivating connections through compassion and love, opening yourself up through vulnerability, attaching securely to other secure people, finding belonging and shepherding it for others by striving for equality. 

Purpose

It's the drive, it's what keeps you alive.

You can find it in other people, places and things — or by simply opening doors and holding them open for others. 

Wisdom

Wisdom is more than just the accumulation of knowledge, it is the thoughtful and enlightened application of it. 

Freedom

You can find it by conquering the demons that keep you paralyzed, small and dependent, by acquiring enough capital to survive and achieve stability, by expressing yourself.

The Deathbed Fallacy

People on their deathbeds regret not spending more time with their family, traveling more, worrying less, etc.

Not a representative state

The 'deathbed' is not a representative state of life. What you desire when you are there might not have much in common with the most meaningful or satisfactory life you could have led.

  • The deathbed-you has no future, only present and memories.
  •  People on their deathbeds think they know their past selves well, but they probably don't.
  • They are locked in a time, place and life situation that might be different from yours.
Your past selves

You don’t know your past selves. The older you get, the more you think you understand yourself as a younger person. You have probably forgotten how you were influenced then and might still have the same values. 

For instance, you might think that a priority as a child was to fit it. But, if really looking at your diary, you discover that you valued independence back then the same you do now.

“Those who are wise won’t be busy, and those who are too busy can’t be wise.”
Lin Yutang
Busy as a default state

“‘Busy’ has become the new ‘Fine’.” 

When you ask somebody how they were doing, they used to answer, “Fine.” But nowadays, everybody answers, “Busy.”

Being busy is a choice

We are never forced into a lifestyle of busyness. 'Busy' is nothing but a decision we make.

Simply realize that our schedules are determined by us.

Admit that you are missing out and there’s nothing you can do about it.

Refrain from social media
Try staying offline for a day, a week, or maybe even a month to wake up to the wonders of the real world. 

If you return, decide which sites to spent time on and which not.

Astrology and its perceived benefits

Astrology should not be perceived as a science, but rather as a system that explains each sign's evolution, including facts on personality, life cycles and relationship patterns, based on what the planets do or will do.

Having this in mind, individuals turn to astrology whenever they feel overwhelmed, whether it is about personal or professional stress. In return, they expect astrology to provide them with better perspectives and positive mindset.

Astrology and its believrs

For most of the people, astrology feels like a comforting magic that allows them to escape today's too organized and predictable life.

In order to feel the need to seek for astrology, one should first realize that he or she does not want pre-established answers anymore, but rather the pleasure to discover on own ground the truth, the freedom and the meaning of things. However, there is still a great amount of individuals who believe in astrology in a more rational way, while coming to the conclusion that this is some sort of language, of a tool.

The career pitfall
Careers used to be kind of like a 40-year tunnel. You picked your tunnel, and once you were in, that was that. You worked in that profession for 40 years or so before the tunnel spit you out on the other side into your retirement.

Today’s career landscape isn’t a lineup of tunnels, it’s a massive, impossibly complex, rapidly changing science laboratory. 

Why Career-path-carving is important.

Time. A typical career will take up somewhere between 20% and 60% of your meaningful adult time.

Quality of Life. Your career has a major effect on all your non-career hours.

Impact. Whatever shape your career path ends up taking, the world will be altered by it.

Identity. We tell people about our careers by telling them what we are.

Techno-maximalism

It promtes the basic idea that technological innovations can bring value and convenience into your life.

It just looks at the positives. And it's view is more is better than less, because more things that bring you benefits means more total benefits. 

Putting FOMO into perspective

If you want to maximize the amount of value you feel in your life, you want to put as much of your time and effort as possible into the small number of things to give you huge rewards. 

When you think about it that way, fear of missing out looks like, just mathematically speaking, a really bad strategy.

There’s more to Bruce Lee than martial arts

Self-discovery
Martial arts was not merely a competitive sport for Bruce Lee, but in essence a means of self-discovery and self-expression.

By learning to fight, he was able to better understand who he was — he could force himself out of his comfort zone, test his limits, and confront his fears. 

Be like water

Bruce Lee saw life as being in constant change.

Unless we learn to adapt to it, we’re bound to experience tremendous resistance that will entrap us in a constant state of suffering.

When routines become a weakness
When routines become a weakness

If you become very attached to your routines, when they get messed up, you get frustrated.

You feel what is almost like withdrawals and you start doubting yourself.

Routines and resistance

A routine means creating practices, habits and rules that force us to be better. Without it, resistance is given too much room to operate.

Routines are essential in the battle with doubt, chaos and laziness.

Discipline is a form of freedom

Left unsupervised, however, it becomes a form of tyranny.

The ability to rotate from routine to routine, discipline to discipline, according to the needs of the day and the moment is very important.

Planning for the unexpected

The specifics of your job

We let our planning focus on the tasks associated with the job. But we don't take into account all the aspects of our job.

Interacting with people can be part of the broader scope of your job. It means that interruptions are not actually non-productive aspects. They are actions that should get folded into the plan for each day.

Blocks of time

Some interruptions cannot be avoided. But, we can talk to people in advance about the best times to pop in. We can also schedule a time when we will not be available and would prefer not to be disturbed.
