I don’t know how to make up for it being so hard and having to make all these changes and to find the time to do it. So how do you stand up for yourself and do what you can to change things. I would probably be lying if I said I don’t do it but I am not always sure how to take it when things go wrong.
Well, I guess the answer to that is most importantly, you can’t. Because when things go wrong you are at the mercy of the decisions made by others and the decisions of others are made by you. If you want to be a world leader you cannot ignore all the things that are wrong in the world. But if you want to make changes to make the world a happier place you can’t just sit around and do nothing.
You can of course, but it all takes time, and that takes time you don’t have. So if you want to make the world a better place, you need to look for the parts that are wrong, and then fix those parts. That is the life-hack approach.
This is where we get a little philosophical. Life hacks are made by others for others, and they are decisions made by others. Those are what I would call the “self-aware” parts of ourselves. The parts that are not aware of how they are made but are made by others, not by us, are the part of ourselves that just does not know what to do.
This is where he reminds me of a great quote from the late great John Wayne who said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
Wayne also said, “Sometimes I think the best way to stop bad men from doing evil is to silence them. Then they’ll never do it.
This is a really important point to remember. When we are unaware of our own habits, routines, impulses, and reactions, we can’t control what happens to us. We can’t tell our parents when they’re gonna make us go to bed or when we’re gonna eat. We can’t tell our friends when they’re gonna talk to us or when we’re gonna eat.
What is the most important thing to remember about life hacks? Its not how to do it. Its how to do it.
You have a choice: either stop bad men from doing evil and silence them, or continue to do evil and make sure that everyone else knows.
You can’t really stop bad men from doing evil, but you can make sure that everyone else knows.
