The future’s not set in stone.How your goals can be? Your ambition needs to be flexible,not replaceable,to adapt to the future.You replace,you start from the scratch.But when you flex – you grow,you change,you modify,you become better.
Some people don’t want to attain knowledge because it is so beautiful.They just want it to make their life easier.
Opposite of science is common sense.Nothing harms the essence of systematic study more than belief in untested claims.
There are only two ways to counter a problem: Either you solve it or forget it’s existence,at least for the time being.
First one is a very palpable option! What about the latter? Solving is what everyone of us try to do.But sometimes we need to forget.We cannot do everything all the time,at least alone.Over-stressing doesn’t help you face problems but preparing for stress does.You sometimes need to wait for the right time and opportunity.
Isn’t our education system a great example for it? We don’t teach college level math to a middle schooler – not because they can’t solve it – but because they can’t solve it RIGHT NOW.
If we could solve all of our problems in one day,we wouldn’t have any problems on the next day.But that doesn’t happen,does it? If you can solve something,solve it.If you can’t solve something,prepare for it.
Going with the flow doesn’t mean that you go up without preparation or go down with regret.
Going with the flow means to adapt and change until the day comes that you control the flow.
Laying back and observing,and deciding the best course of action.That’s going with the flow.
The first step to understanding something is not understanding it.
I would only try to understand something that I don’t know.For what I know I will just assume I know it and won’t critically pursue it any further.
Knowledge evolves through debates and conversations.It isn’t stable,it is ever changing.
To keep up with the change,we need to open our minds to various possibilities or we will be stuck in the middle of the road with nowhere to go.
Having a bad trait isn’t bad.The worst is when you are defined by that trait itself,undermining your virtue.
There are two ways to make change possible – in both cases you need to become ‘big’ relative to the task.
Either you grow your knowledge and skill – become an expert at doing something.
Or you shrink the challenge – you divide your goal into smaller individual attainable actions.
Either way,you become more daunting than the task itself.Do not fear the task.Let the task dread you and follow your way instead.
Once you become capable or believe that you have become capable – your chances of succeeding increase significantly.
Differences will always exist.Fair or unfair.
The only way to beat them is to overcome them.Through tricks or a fight fair and square.
To lessen the madness of the world – first start off with atoning your own sins.
