Learning as a Form of Procrastination

knowledge

“Knowledge, unless you apply it, does not, and will never make you more efficient, influential, powerful or successful.”

Today, thanks to the instant access to the internet, everyone can now study and learn from home. The tremendous quantity of information available online provide anyone with the best ever opportunity to broaden his knowledge in every sphere of activity one can imagine.

For who is starting a new project or new business, the magnitude and quality of information available online literally invites the new entrepreneur, before anything else, to gather as much intelligence as possible related to his undertaking. Ultimately, delaying all productive action, the new entrepreneur is ending up trying to be everywhere, reading and trying to do everything that is suggested or recommended by the so-called pundits.

Reading everything you can get your hands on, listening to every single podcast you can download, taking every online course you can afford, learning how to write the best possible resume; how to land the job of your dreams; how to launch a successful business or new product; how to create the greatest blog and website; how to write and publish a new book is not going to help you whatsoever. Ultimately, doing everything except taking action, you do not start or achieve anything. All those activities do not and will never take you anywhere close to whatever you wish to accomplish.

The key to power, greater achievement and success is not excessive expertise, but the ability to use it. Knowledge is absolutely worthless unless it is applied. The truth is that no matter how extensive your knowledge, there will always be obstacles and unexpected circumstances that you will have to face. There will always be issues that never have been described or covered in any book. And, one day or another, you will be ending up having to deal with situations no one ever has met before. These are the days where you will have to show some initiative and creativity, having to look for solutions and make decisions that no one probably has ever thought of.

While constantly looking for new sources of information and content, nothing is being done. Thanks to the Internet, learning has now become a major social trend and major form of procrastination. Constant researching, learning, planning, thinking, rethinking and visualization will not accomplish anything other than letting you spinning in your tracks and leaving you stranded in the place you are now. You will never start, even less accomplish or finish, anything. Only actions will drive you where you wish or want to be.

My point is that for anyone that have read even only these three books: “The Bible”, “The Prince” and “How to Win Friends and Influence People”, there is no need for further learning. You already have and know everything you need to know to live the life of your dreams and achieve power and success. There is nothing more you need to learn in order to take the first step. Stop reading everything that has been written, stop listening to everyone that has something to say.

Everything has been written, everything has been said centuries ago. There is nothing new under the sun. Read “The Bible”, read “The Prince”, read Machiavelli, read “How to Win Friends and Influence People”, read Carnegie, maybe Zig Ziegler and stop right there. Start writing your own book, the book of your own life. Take action now, turn your unstoppable procrastination into unstoppable action and start learning from your own experience.

Adaptation and Survival 

True knowledge is nothing else than adaptation and survival.

Since the beginnings, past civilizations and cultures all rose and fell on the margin of ecology. Today, urbanizing our ecology, we have created and still are creating something very unique in the history of mankind: an urban order no one can walk away from, nor anyone survive.

Despite the sayings of all ancient wisdom writings and ancient scriptures, knowledge doesn’t grow on trees. True knowledge is knowledge of truth. There is a fundamental differentiation between reality and our perception of reality, between the true nature of reality and our opinion on the true nature of reality, between true reality and our perception of the reality.

Let it be said that the end of human life is the end of the world beyond which is nothing. This is evolutionary thinking. Human existence and human activity make a world where otherwise there is nothing. The very laws of nature are the outcome of an everlasting evolution. To think otherwise is nothing else than pure intellectual masturbation. Modern urban masses can no longer be well governed by old ancient history, old ancient principles or medieval methods. In today’s world, scientific objectivity shall prevail on the spiritual and magical. Good lying no longer makes good knowledge. Rational over theological and philosophical is now the rule. Replace “faith” with “knowledge” and you have the guiding idea of Truth and Enlightenment, of the true nature of Reality.

Spirituality does not determine human existence. It is our social existence, which determines our reality. In today’s world, esoteric and spiritual contemplation as well of all other forms of intellectual masturbation will always only result in derivation, antisocial behaviors, prejudices and bias. Maxims, morals, proverbial nuggets of wisdom, myths and wishful thinking will always result in an antisocial confrontational social world, perversion, chaos and destruction. Objectivity and rationality are the new fundamentals of knowledge that will drive us on a truly social and global world. To know is to enjoy and global social order can only result from true knowledge.

Today’s reality is very different from yesterday’s reality. Today’s reality is the now-global human environment. Knowledge is realistic not because it imitates reality but because it contributes to the political realism expressed in the preference for knowledge, for true knowledge.

Love Justice

and_justice_for_all_by_shadeofshinon

 The Book of Wisdom

The Old Ancient Wisdom Experiment Project

Chapter 1 [Introduction]

Love justice, you that are the judges of the earth. Wisdom will not enter into a malicious soul, nor dwell in a body subject to iniquities. Wisdom will flee from the deceitful, and will withdraw herself from thoughts that are without understanding, and she shall not abide when iniquity comes in. For The Spirit of Wisdom is benevolent, and will not acquit the evil speakers from their lips. For The Spirit of Wisdom has filled the whole world: and that, which contains all things, has knowledge of the voice. Therefore whose that speak unjust things cannot be hid, neither shall the chastising judgment. For inquisition shall be made into the thoughts of the wicked: and the hearing of their words shall come to the chastising of their iniquities. For the ear of jealousy hears all things, and the tumult of murmuring shall not be hid. Keep yourselves therefore from murmuring, which profits nothing, and refrain your tongue from detraction, for an obscure speech shall not go for nought: and the mouth that belies, kills the soul. Seek not death in the error of your life, neither achieve ye destruction by the works of your hands. For Wisdom made not death, neither has she pleasure in the destruction of the living. For she created all things that they might be: and she made the nations of the earth for health: and there is no poison of destruction in them, nor kingdom of perdition upon the earth. For justice is perpetual and immortal. But the wicked with works and words have called it to them: and esteeming it a friend have fallen away, and have made a covenant with it: because they are worthy to be of the part thereof.

Nothing New Under the Sun

Torah inside of the former Glockengasse Synago...

He that increases knowledge increases sorrow

1THE words of Solomon, the son of David, king in Jerusalem

2 Vanity of vanities, says The Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity. 3 What profit has a man of all his labour, which he takes under the sun? 4 One generation passes away, and another generation comes: but the earth abides for ever. 5 The sun also arises, and the sun goes down, and hastes to his place where he arose. 6 The wind goes toward the south, and turns about unto the north; it whirls about continually, and the wind returns again according to his circuits. 7 All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. 8 All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. 9 The thing that has been, it is that which shall be; and that which is and what has been done is that which shall be done: and there is nothing new under the sun. 10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It has been already of old time, which was before us. 11 There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.

12 I the Preacher was king over Israel in Jerusalem. 13 And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven: this sore travail has God given to the sons of man to be exercised therewith. 14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit. 15 That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered. 16 I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge. 17 And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. 18 For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increases knowledge increases sorrow.


[1] Solomon was, according to the Bible’s Book of Kings and Book of Chronicles, a king of Israel, son of David that would have live between 970 and 931 AD.
