    OFF-TOPIC Schopenhauer - On Thinking for Oneself

    https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/On_Thinking_for_Oneself I just finished this short & wonderful essay. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes to read a lot, as reading can actually make you dumber under certain circumstances. It resonated with an idea which I implied from Nassim Taleb, which is to...

    Has anyone really reached their goals?

    Hi folks, I'm curious. Has anyone here in this forum really reached their initial goals? By that, I mean starting with nothing, and deciding "I will do X and earn X in X days/weeks/months/years" and actually achieved it? I don't know, it seems to me pursuing a goal is actually...

    What’s your Meaning of Life?

    I recently finished re-reading, “Man’s Search for Meaning” by Viktor E. Frankly and he brought up a good point. You don’t ask to the universe, “What’s the meaning to life?”... That question is actually a question for you. You’re the one who answers that question. And everyone’s answer will...

    Food for thought.

    Which are some books to get my feet wet into ... how do I call this

    Hi peeps. Happy Friday. Still stuck on my 5/2 exchange so I'm still saying TGIF ._. My coworker next to me is eating and he's making chewing noises, I wanna throw the keyboard at him. I just read "Keep Going" by Austin Kleon in a couple commutes. Short little book, those nice little reads...

    Every time I do this, I fail. And so will you.

    Hello guys. I wanted to mention something about my experiences in life that are applicable for business and day to day life. Every time I doubted myself, I found myself doing worse. I gave myself a reason to fail. It's like just the idea of me doubting myself made me lose my confidence. And...

    RANT Why do we love losers?

    I feel too many people are soft today. We accept failure almost as equally as a success. They try to make all the kids feel like winners and have no one feel the grief of loss. If you never taste defeat, how can you truly taste victory? I just wonder why we are accepting stuff like this and...

    The WHY that pushes me to work and never relent. Does anyone else think this way?

    During my youth I remember how often I would not be able to sleep at night thinking of death. I would end up in my parents room asking questions they did not have the answer to. Death is such an impossible thing to imagine. For an agnostic like myself it can lead to depressing thoughts. I saw...

    There is nothing in the desert and no man needs nothing

    Hey there Fastlaner (or soon to be one). Yes you. I have a message for you should you care to hear it. No matter where you are in the world, you are zooming past everyone and everything in your life. Everything from your everyday choices, decisions, business, and those dear to you. Not paying...

    Ultimate Resource List (Websites, Books, and more!)

    INTRO I've been browsing through this forum a bit and (forgive me if I'm wrong) I haven't seen a thread that shows a massive list of resources for learning. Obviously learning is vital to surviving in this day and age. Creating a business? Gotta know basic salesmanship, marketing, manufacturing...

    OFF-TOPIC Is Willy Wonka Unscripted?

    This man has created a wold of his imagination. Isn't that what being unscripted is about. Simply imagining what you want out of life then creating it? Although if i can remember he has had a difficult time running the factory and was retiring candy making but he was looking for a successor much...

    Which mindset is better? Machiavellian vs altruistic?

    Which mindset will make you more successful? 1. Following the money, power and influence to secure your interests. While doing that, working on happiness health and self development. Doing what works for your benefit. Doing what makes you wealthier, more powerful, and more influential. 2...

    Happiness and Freedom. Stoicism and Entrepreneurship, the Parallel.

    I am going to start and end this thread with the same question. How has philosophy helped you? Not long ago, my college-old interest in philosophy had been rekindled. With a specific focus on Stoicism. This occurred about the same time I started becoming interested in entrepreneurship. Was this...
