Today I just want to highlight 3 blog posts that I read from TK Coleman's Blog. If not for future reference, I'm also doing this to cement them in my mind by spending some time writing and thinking about them.
- How to Get Around Bodyguards and Make It to the Top Part I
- How to Get Around Bodyguards and Make It to the Top Part II
- How to Get Around Bodyguards and Make It to the Top Part III
I feel the need to save those words because I want to remember what I think is an important lesson. And I just can't say it any better myself.
I used to waste my time looking for flaws in things rather than ignoring them or extracting the value I could get out of them. For example, I've criticized movies or shows for being "anti-capitalist propaganda," I've dismissed thinkers for having (in my opinion) the wrong conclusion on a certain issue, I've laughed off quotes for not being applicable to every situation etc.
Those little reservations were guarding valuable truths, and I have been too skeptical to get through them.
From now on I am going to choose to see everything I consume as an opportunity to learn and become a better version of myself. Anything that doesn't have the capacity to do that for me (I'm looking at you, politics) I will simply discard from my life.
