I’m convinced that the root of most problems in a man’s life is not spending enough time ALONE.
You’re in a constant cycle of CONSUMPTION and NEED for stimulation and you don’t even know it.
Constantly needing to listen to podcasts
Listen to music
Don’t get me wrong, of course doing these is valuable. BUT THERE IS A TIME AND PLACE.
If you’re catching a flight and there’s noise all around the airport? Sure, by all means turn on the noise cancellation and listen to podcasts.
But if you’re alone, focused, and have time- PRODUCE SOMETHING.
I truly believe that having a verbal dialogue with your own self is INFINITELY more useful than listening to the greatest gooroos of this world.
As Emerson once said (I’m paraphrasing) “To believe that what you hold in your heart is what everyone holds in their heart is greatness”
TALK TO YOURSELF MORE.
LISTEN TO YOURSELF MORE.
BECOME YOUR OWN “BEST FRIEND”
