Just ran into this yesterday. His name is Stefan Molyneux, and trust me, he goes in (he’s kind of funny, too). You’ll find him mentioning some of the same points raised in Session 3 of Conquer Yourself. Watch this now:
“IT’S NOT NATURAL TO PROCRASTINATE…procrastination is an artificial scar tissue that results from being controlled and bullied when you where a child (in school and in church); from not being consulted and not being treated with respect…procrastination is a slave’s passive-aggressive response to being ordered around.” ~ Stefen Molyneux

Back in 1995, Stephen Kaplan, a psychology professor at University of Michigan, wrote an article called The Restorative Benefits of Nature: Towards an Integrative Framework saying that:
“Directed attention plays an important role in human information processing; its fatigue, in turn, has far-reaching consequences. ‘Attention Restoration Theory’ provides an analysis of the kinds of experiences that lead to recovery from such fatigue (and) natural environments turn out to be particularly rich in the characteristics necessary for (such) restorative experiences.
An integrative framework is proposed that places both directed attention and stress …

Let’s get straight to the point here: people enslave themselves by refusing to leave the plantation of their conditioned thought patterns and behavior.
As the classic author James Allen once said:
“Men are anxious to change their
circumstances, but hesitant to change themselves…
they therefore remain bound.”
Tuesday’s post was called “The Essential Nature of Self-Discipline,” and that essential nature is PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.
The bottom line is that you’ll never go far in life if your first response to a challenges is, “okay, let me go out and change this thing,” or your …
Today we’re going to build on the power of EDUCATING YOURSELF, so here’s an excerpt from something I wrote over a year ago but never released on exactly that:
“The first mechanic (or mind-elevating skill) that’ll empower you is self-education…you can take your life to the next level, advance yourself far beyond most of the people in your same position and more easily cultivate your potential by taking your education into your own hands.

You can tell A LOT about somebody by their smallest and most subtle acts: the little statements they make and immediate responses they have to trivial things. I guess the reason these pet-peeves make me “go off” like that is because they reveal the type of things that I’m dedicated towards removing in myself and other people.
To be clear though, I never really bug out about anything …
