I knew he was gonna fall into this. His earlier book shows how young and enthusiastic he was developing ways to decrease sleep Time, Work more efficiently, etc
Living a life like a robot where you calculate your sleep, Each nutrient in your diet, etc.
You can't just control everything. Now Tim Ferris is trying to get out.
I think life should be a healthy balance of both, he is obviously intelligent but when you spend most of your time doing the same crap you get tired.
It's very hard to detect the demons in you'r mind/head/thoughts. But with time you learn to recognize how they "think" for you, and deep down inside you, you want to tell yourself "this is not how I think/these are not my thoughts". But it takes some time to stabilize your brain/thoughts and when it "so to say cools down", you feel ashamed, scared, worried about yourself and wtf is going on with and within you etc.
It took some time, researching and asking and I came upon something called Islam.
Now whenever I get these "demons/crazy thoughts/ unnecessary worries and hatred/rage in my mind" mostly when I'm in the bathroom/toilet or alone, I say this (audhu billahi min ash shaytan ir rajeem) - means: God protect me from the devil and all evil/demons/ghosts.
//you can search on youtube, someone might have better explaining etc//.
After saying and meaning it for real, I feel how my head/mind gets released and life goes on.
What if depression is derived from an absolute disgust with where society is heading, and ZERO ability to do anything about it. It's simply opening your eyes to the destruction of everything good and sacred...all in the name of optimization, narcissism, and this asinine, vile smug self-obsessive 'feel-good' feminist / hyper-leftist relativistic millennial drivel that spews from bottom-feeder people's mouths on the daily. Just read around. It's getting worse EVERY SINGLE DAY, and it's going to make people like Trump president until we do something about it. Adding on top of the vile, 'mean-girls' style show boating across the social media spectrum and 'influencers' who are driving costs and metrics platforms into a downward spiral, causing mediocrity and high school-esque popularity cliques to reign. It's almost as if everything so many smart, kind people thought they had escaped, has suddenly creeped back in, destroying everything good, wholesome, and sacred. It's not an exaggeration either. It's super dangerous, and I believe driving mental illness through the roof...and will continue to get worse.
Just watch these teens now and this world of relative ethics creep in. You thought it was hard for teenage boys and their rage hormones...think about how hard it is now to anchor your identity. Their messages are so f'ed. They have to compete with GIRLS now to even get a girl. Can you imagine that as your teenage boy self? What are these boys gonna do. Who do they look up to? What is going to happen to them? Every single piece of feel good fluff is ALL about 'female empowerment'. Female this. Female that. Bisexuality in female teens has sky rocketed. A poll suggested that more than 70% of teenage millennials identify as bisexual. How is this? Why? Does anyone ask these questions? What is seriously happening in this society? What does that do to the psyche of teenage boy trying to find love? That he's so low on the totem poll that a girl is better at getting girls than him. We have seriously fucked this up. I've watched teenage boys swinging at girls on the street because the girls think they're the same as guys because they 'heard it on tv'. If we've gotten to the point where there is indeed a 'gender war' between the sexes, and we can't even talk about it...we are certainly doomed.
Remember how we were all supportive of gay rights and gay people? It's beyond that now. It's become a 'chic' brand to wear on your sleeve now. It's like INSANITY. The young female mind is so feeble and maleable. If monkeys were sexualized, they'd be going after monkeys. And this is not a knock on real, hardened lgbt people with deep seeded roots in their identity. This is a complete knock in the insanity of modern MEDIA and social media and their constant vying for attention grabbing and manipulating.
It's a huge warning of how bad things can become. They are trying to tear down frameworks that have kept us from killing each other in a society of class and curtesy. I fear that there will be deep backlash soon, as the sacred bond between men and women will be torn by this new up and coming crowd of 18-25 year old millennials who refuse to face reality for what it is. We are in so so so so much doodoo.
The fact is this! Most people already have EVERYTHING that they need to live a very happy life. They allow themselves to be brainwashed into believing that they are missing something in their lives that will make them ‘complete’. Happiness comes when you see the world for what it really is
Good Lord, another person with the money to do most anything they can dream of and complaining about being depressed. Oh, and others that struggle with mental health are privileged to hear his advise. What a saint and mentor. bullshit
Gawd DERMITT! I'm not crazy! Look, see how many exclamation points I use!!!!!!!!!!!! One, two, three, four, five, six, blah, blah, blahahahaha!!!!!! Gerwd, the world is nuts; Tim Ferris is depressed, Salena Gomez is depressed, Ronald McDonald is depressed and Blockbuster is depressed. If we all just had a Mr. Pickles, like I do, then it wouldn't be everyone's bad thing. (*sigh*) So whoadoe, (*In the voice of Joey Tribbiani*), how you doin'? (*wink*)
Erg, I'm not crazy! Why does everyone keep saying I am crazy? (*sob*) You don't know how hard it is. Your ex isn't whoring his face all over YouTube. Timmy Bear, I swear I'm better. I won't be crazy, I promise. Just call me back, please. My psychiatrist is wrong. I can't let you go; I won't let you go. Not now; nOT (*deep voice*) EVER! Listen to my messages. Katie is wrong. She is never wrong. Answer the phone, P_L_E_A_S_E!
read Tolstoy's A Confession, incredibly dark and powerful short book of Tolstoy's writing at the height of his career about his existential nihilistic(life is meaningless) crisis and suicidal tendencies.
DontTestTheX Tim Ferris accepts he isn't so perfect.
If he wanted he could hide it because why would you read his books for self help if needs it as well?
Go read his blogs. Tim Ferris works the best way a human being can be productive with his time whether it's training for a race or working in a company.
He just realizes living 100% on full speed can take a toll on your brain. So he is slowing down and relaxing
Canadian Scholar and you are? you pr9bably think that Trump has a low iq.
you probably concern yourself with tho he like politics or sciences thinking its.IMPORTANT. your probably an athiest.
And p.s. I hate Trump. doesn't mean he's dumb
