What is ‘success’? How much of your time is in your control? – The philosophy of: CGP Grey, Apollodorus in Plato’s The Symposium, The Onion, a former student of mine, and I guess mine too.

What do you consider ‘success’? The way that it’s treated by seemingly the majority of the world is: money, fame, recognition, financial assets or some bullshit ass cocktail of the above. But no matter how substantial your bullshit ass cocktail is, do you live a longer life than those without …

Dust. Wind. Dude. – The Philosoph(izing) of: Bill S. Preston esquire and Ted Theodore Logan [pt.3]

Throughout the ages, wisdom hasn’t changed. We were the exact same species one hundred, five hundred, two thousand and 5 thousand years ago. We still all live and we die (for now). Whether our inability to process and accept wisdom is the reason for the wisdom never evolving is another …
