Everyone says that experience makes you wise.
I found it to be quite true.
Indeed experience makes us wise.
Then few days back I had an idea.
Which came out of the blue.
It was like.
If you keep experiencing things and then become wise.
Then it would take hundred of years.
Why don’t you skip the experience and still learn.
I wasn’t able to understand what my mind was saying.
But, it was a good idea.
Then I started to think.
How to skip experiences and become wise.
I had many relationships but every time I was felt misunderstood and unconnected (yes that’s what my last post was 😅)
Moreover with respect to career also I took few bad decisions and then learned.
If I look back at these experiences then the common thing in them was that I always learnt after experiencing failures or maybe heartbreaks.
I never understood before them.
Well, now the problem is that I’m a mortal human being.
I don’t have that time to experience everything and then fall on right track.
This may take years maybe two or three lifetimes.
Then what should I do.
How to make mind understand things without experiencing?
Isn’t this a valid question.
Anyways leave me.
Think about yourself.
Didn’t you face failures, heartbreaks, illness and then realised what’s wrong for you.
What about that situation where you can assess everything and don’t have to face all this drama and still make brilliant decisions.
Well. The solution to this one is bit complicated and unorthodox.
Experience taught us how to light fire, how to hunt animals and how to make tools.
The trial and error method.
But, now our minds are developed we have evolved from that early man age.
Yes, animals do use trial and error method.
But, that’s why we’re humans we are more evolved animals.
Now, the solution.
Which I feel is a better way to apply.
I think the most important thing is to know ourselves and everything which is in us.
Like our mind and body.
I’ve read countless books on psychology and philosophy.
That’s why I assume that I follow those teachings really well.
If we know our minds and bodies.
If we know our desires and passions.
Then only we can overcome them
So, these will only come from thinking, observing and questioning your own mind.
If you know yourself then you’ve won the half battle.
I’ll give you an example.
Well. I don’t eat outside food that much but whenever I do, I get sick.
That’s my body.
I know about it.
So, today I was going through a street and there was delicious food being made.
And, most of the students were eating.
At that moment my passions did rise.
But, then I got reminded that this is outside food.
And I learned that outside food isn’t good for my body.
So, instead of experiencing that sickness I still made a rational choice just because I knew about my body.
Now, if we come to our work.
Then we should also know that what we’re good at.
If we don’t know this.
Then alot of bad experiences can waste our considerable time and energy.
So, to avoid it.
Know your talent.
And then try to make that talent your profession with lot of obsession towards it.
That’s the best way to achieve greatness in short amount of time.
And the second thing which comes is to know your enviornment.
So, wherever you go do some research.
If its a monument or for a date.
I used to always research and plan bit in mind wherever I used to go.
But, yes sometimes everything doesn’t go according to plan(because people would be late or change their minds😂) but you can still improvise rationally.
If you know whom you’re meeting, if you know what type of person they are by observing their habits and gestures then you can make a choice whether to stay with that person or not, instead of talking so much with him or her and wasting your time and then releasing that he/she was an absolute jerk.
That’s why I meet people in person.
I get to know them better.
Obviously I don’t like chatting on the phone. 😅
So, If I sum up this article.
Then I would say.
Knowledge of yourself.
Knowledge of enviornment.
These three things are which can save your time, energy, money and most importantly your life from all the drama that experience through experiences.
I know our minds will revolt.
It would say that you’vent experienced things then how can you change.
First experience then make a decision.
But, be aware of this fallacy.
There’s a wise saying that to experience death, you don’t have to die, you learn from your world.
The same thing I would say.
To make good choices you don’t have to experience unpleasant situations, failures and heartbreaks, you learn from yourself and your enviornment.
