How To Live -27 conflicting answers and one weird conclusion - Derek Sivers - Do Nothing - 12 Insights

    1. You don't have to act or react.

    If someone offers you a gift and you don't accept the gift to whom does the gift belong? To the giver.

    Do nothing, say nothing.

    Allow others to draw their own conclusions, don't give them any raw data.

    It takes two to go to war.

    You don't need to do anything.

    2. Expressing your anger doesn't relieve it.

    Anger begets more anger.

    You're not angry for the reason you think.

    3. In your most peaceful moments, your mind is quiet.

    You could have peace instead of that.

    Silence is golden.

    Not all songs are meant to be sung.

    Say. No. More.

    4. Wanting to change yourself is self-loathing.

    You can't improve on perfection.

    You are enough.

    When you remove the blocks to Love's presence you'll be able to recognize your beautiful self.

    5. Most talk is just noise.

    Most talk is the result of unhealed minds.

    If your talk is not about Love and joining, it's just noise.

    6. Shallow rivers are noisy. Deep lakes are silent.

    Shallow egos make a lot of noise.

    Truth needs no defending, it stands tall and strong, unaffected by the noise in the world.

    7. Practice feeling emotions intentionally, instead of using actions to create them.

    Go to the source, you don't need an intermediary.

    8. You whole experience of life is in your head.

    Your body is a communication device. It only does what the mind instructs it to do.

    If you change your mind, you change your life.

    The internal world is where all the magic happens.

    9. When a problem is bothering you, it feels like you need to do something about it. Instead, identify what belief is really the source of your trouble.

    All problems stem from a belief you hold about someone that isn't true.

    All troubles originate from what you are thinking and believing.

    10. The unintelligent jump to conclusions. The wise just observe.

    You come to conclusions based on incomplete and inaccurate information.

    You believe you know a lot but you know less than you think.

    A wise man knows he can add nothing to the truth

    A wise woman knows that anything she adds to what is not true doesn't mean anything.

    11. When people give opinions, add a question mark.

    Is that so?

    12. Do nothing now to show that life goes on without you.

    The sun is 109 times wider than Earth.
