Key Ideas

Carpe diem

One lesson everybody comes to learn sooner or later in life is that life ends, we all die. Through the death of a beloved one or just by hearing news on unknown people's death, this is the one topic that always stays stuck to our brain. However, being alive here and now does matter and a lot: therefore, try living your life through good and bad and enjoy it as much as you can, as you never know when everything is over.

Change is inevitable

Change scares us, almost always: not knowing how a new chapter of our life will end up feeling like can really lead to feelings of distress. However, change brings out, most often, evolution. Embracing change can prove to be the best thing you have ever done, as growth is seldom possible without change.

Change your attitude towards the current events

Whenever you face difficult times, be patient. Whenever you feel like following your passion, do it without regrets. Whenever you want something, work hard to get it. Whenever a change is inevitable, embrace. Learn to adjust your attitude according to what you go through in the different moments and do not forget to cherish the present moment.

Learn from the hard times

Going through hard times has two main consequences: firstly, they change you fundamentally and, secondly, they enable you to grow. Learning how to live through hard times is one of the major keys to a successful and happy life.

Learn to be patient with yourself

When you do not know exactly where you are heading to, learn to be patient. Unplanned events often lead to pleasant surprises and personal growth. Learn to be open-minded and accept new challenges and your life might just turn out way better than expected.

How we think about risk and opportunity

It’s impossible to think about risk and opportunity without a reference point. And ours is at most incomplete (if not totally wrong).

Everything we think about risk and opportunity is shaped by our own specific situation and personal experience. So everybody has a view of risk shaped by narrow experiences but applied to the broad world.

Long-term and short-term thinking

Long-term thinking is difficult to put in action because the long run is a collection of short runs that have to be handled, displayed, and used as information to gauge whether a long-term reward still exists.

Short-term thinking can be the only way you’ll survive long enough to experience long-term results.

Solipsism

If we look at our dreams and the brain’s capacity to hallucinate, we can see that nothing outside our existence may be real.

Everything could be an illusion, a long dream, and we could be the only person that existed in a world of ‘Maya’. This is what solipsism is all about.

Idealism

The philosophy of idealism states that reality is something that exists on a mental level, and many or most of our outer experiences could just be imagination.

Changing your default thinking

You have conscious control of about 10% of your brain. Most of your judgments, prioritizations, decisions, and actions are happening in your subconscious. Many of these processes are running on default programs to maintain the current position.

One reason change is hard is that you're often working against these defaults. You can change the defaults by giving your brain a concrete goal.

Set your autopilot

A well worked out goal sets the compass in your subconscious. It's not going to change your bad habits instantly but will serve as a guide when you make a choice.

When your brain is set on a course, it helps those default programs work for you instead of against you.
