1. The pull to live the next second on autopilot is just too strong; and autopilot is extremely good at its job anyway. (If you know how to play, say, piano, try paying attention to your fingers, watching them move. Whoops, have you missed a tune? There are studies regarding conscious vs subconscious performance in similar areas, and subconscious clearly wins). Seconds amount to minutes, to days, and then the life's gone.

It takes establishing new process to get to a new result, so how do we break from the usual routine and stop bs-ing ourselves? One way I found useful is to think in writing. Just write down your thoughts as they come and re-read, trying to spot mistakes or false conclusions.

2. Another technique I found useful is this. I've been trying to calculate the best solution to any mgmt task I've got. But if there was a way to know the ideal answer, there would be no need in a manager. Therefore, I try to find the balance between the confidence in my solution, the cost of "calculation" it takes to create one (i. e. the time needed to talk to people, to gather and analyze data) and the two parts of EV. I evaluate the negative (risk) and the positive (reward) parts separately as well as in its aggregated form (which is EV).

I'd love to know what's your approach to that is, how do you spot mistakes while thinking and making decisions?

Another thing regarding asking questions and searching for the information.

The metric I use to determine whether I need a particular answer is following. I imagine what the answer could be? Usually there is a number of options. Then I consider how my actions would change given one answer or another. If they won't change anyway, I don't need that information right now.

Helps to tell action taking from action faking :)

you have to think in systems and follow mental models.

Freedom/ success means awareness and wisdom can achieve their mission in life without being stopped by stupidity and ignorance.
( btw, it has nothing to do with money. money is just a variable, not the end )


for example :

Eben pagan'style

25094




Charlie Munger 's style : mentals models, cognitives biases

25095

25096




Stuart Goldmisth style: the initiate above the stupid masses/slaves

25097




Strategic military style :

25099




you can even create you own style, your own innovative game in a matrix - like manner

the Architect above the masses . this is the teaching of occult wisdom and secret societies

humans are masters of animals and initiates are masters of humans

"As above, so below " ( hermetic teaching )

Very good post

thanks

first of all ,we can only act according to our current understanding of life. everywhere and everytime

children understand the world a certain way
most adults , another way
the elite, initiates, another way
spiritual masters, another way...

and so on because there are infinite levels of awareness.


the current levels of reality understanding in society :


25109



people here want freedom and material things : level 2 of the pyramid . people asking question

" wait a minute, i don't want to be a slave for 40 years . how to escape ?"

you can obtain these things with system thinking

for example :

Jeff Walker 's product launch formula

25110

Jeff walker belongs to the level 2 of the pyramid : people using their brains ( introvert thinkers )




level 3 are the masterminds of society following higher principles of management of the masses

they belong to think tanks ( fabian society etc. )

for example : hegelian dialectics

thesis: capitalism ( to be destroyed soon )
antithesis : communism ( already destroyed )
synthesis : new world order ( coming soon )

25111


masterminds use human psychology and so on to manage the masses


25113







level 4 are spiritual masters above the circus called society that is managed by level 3

for example :

yes this is expected. thank you

95 % people can't understand what i say because they are machines as taught here:

25124



25125


so a quick pyramid again :

25126


level 1 : 95 % of people

socialy programmed from childhood. they don't think at all. they just react. they are robots

life is eating, working, waching TV, etc . they don't question anything.

animal level


level 2 and 3 : people waking up, initiates, masterminds etc.

the ego is thinking. independant thought. masters of the level 1 which they use for their goals



for example : INTJ people

25129




level 4 : spiritual masters

the superior self is thinking, not the small ego. the power of the universe is thinking


for example : the idea od " insight " in krisnamurti teaching




25127



another example of the superior self :
