The Path

Tawk is cheap, Walk the walk

Philosophy

Philosophers without skin in the game are BS vendors.

Assumptions

Everything in your head are assumptions to make out what's real, walk the walk.

Information

We base our judgments, not on new information but on the information that we have internalized. You can't change people's views quickly and you can't change yours. But try to be as close to reality as possible.

Why?

Because I want to,
Because I can,
Because I must,
Because there is no other way.

Self-respect

Ego is false confidence, self-respect is true confidence. Self-esteem is just the reputation that you have with yourself. You'll always know.

Obstacle is the way

The problems you face while walking on your path is the path.

Fuck categories, Fuck specializations

Don't race because we are not rats.
Do everything, not just specialize because we are not ants.

The club

Find your tribe, walking the road less traveled by is easy if you got friends by your side.

Anger and loneliness

If you are doing anything remotely awesome you will get lonely and anger will cloud your judgment. Learn to embrace solidarity and channelize your wrath.

Risks

Avoid risks that can lead to complete ruin that you can't return from.

Wealth

Wealth is a very long-term game. If your only motivation is money, you won't last.

Follow the money, the information, and the people

Money is essentially information, people carry that information. follow these and you will find the most important things.

Teachers and Mentors

We learn by imitation, whether we like it or not. We will become the people we admire.

Culture and Society

Cultural forces are too strong, the societal voice in your head is too strong.

Walking the path most traveled by

There is a difference between average risk and personal risk when you do what everybody is doing you minimize your personal risk, when you don't you maximize it.

The vision

The things you think about determine the quality of your mind. Your soul takes on the color of your thoughts.

― Marcus Aurelius

Language

To follow your path create your own vocabulary, ditch platitudes, ditch vague words, be as specific as you can.

History, Now and the Future

“Life is very short and anxious for those who forget the past, neglect the present, and fear the future.”

– Seneca

The calling

Try everything, do everything, and in the end realize doing nothing is the most blissful.

Schedule and Routine

Routine is for people who can't think for themselves.

Rituals and traditions

We are contextual beings we need some things that don't change and have the value that we can latch on to.

Fuck time

Everything you want is just at the mercy of time.

Extremistan

You only have to be right once.

The delusion

you will need a little bit of delusion if you must walk.

The big questions

What do you want to work on?
With whom do you want to work?
Where do you want to work?

The walk and the Destination

Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, they cling to the realm or the gods or love. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.

– Littlefinger

Ego is the enemy

Minimise it.

ਘਰੇ ਬੈਕੇ, ਘਰੇ ਬੈਕੇ ਮਾਰੀਆ ਨੀ ਗੱਲਾਂ
