Self Improvement

15 STASHED IDEAS

“ Although at this level the vajrayana could be called a journey, it does not go anywhere and it does not come from anywhere. So the vajrayana is a vehicle that seems to have neither beginning nor end. You can neither reverse it nor proceed further along. The vajrayana is self-existent, by its own nature. Therefore, the vajrayana path could be said to be a nonjourney.”

Self-discipline vs self-control

A common misconception is to think of self-discipline as self-control.

  • Self-discipline is about taking action regardless of how you feel. It is to act according to your thoughts, not your feelings. You don't need to feel motivated when you know what must be done.
  • Self-control is resisting the desire of what you want to do. "I won't order dessert because I'm on a diet."

If we want to increase our success and happiness in life and work, we need self-discipline.

When were trying to persuade people, we frequently take an adversarial approach. Instead of opening their minds, we effectively shut them down or rile them up.

They play a defense by putting up a shield, play offense by preaching their perspectives and prosecuting ours, or play politics by telling us what we want to hear without changing what they actually think.

I want too explore a collaborative approach in which we show more humility and curiosity and invite others to think like scientists.
