Learn to focus or accept mediocrity in all you produce

Multitasking is the one of the least productive things you can possibly do. Do not do it unless you absolutely need to pull of an emergency job. This rule for productivity is so golden that you can apply it to anything from daily tasks to life purpose. As the famous saying goes “Jack of all trades, master of none”

In your daily tasks to optimize your productivity, do one thing at a time. Start it, don’t interrupt your flow until you get it done.

“What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of its recipients. Hence, a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention and a need to allocate that attention efficiently among the overabundance of information sources that might consume it.”

—HERBERT SIMON, recipient of Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics8 and the A.M. Turing Award, the “Nobel Prize of Computer Science”

The information diet. The diet of the gods. Your brain is just like a computer. If you run multiple programs on it at the same time, it becomes slow, inefficient and finally; unresponsive. Learn to be selectively ignorant when it is time for you to do something. If you pay mind to the noise, you will never hear the whisper which how all great things communicate. It is a sign of being content as they don’t feel the need to convince you.

“Just as modern man consumes both too many calories and calories of no nutritional value, information workers eat data both in excess and from the wrong sources. Lifestyle design is based on massive action— output. Increased output necessitates decreased input. Most information is time-consuming, negative, irrelevant to your goals, and outside of your influence. ”

Timothy Ferriss, The 4-Hour Workweek

So much for daily tasks. Every time you are multitasking remember that all you can be, is split amongst the things you are doing. You can even apply these fundamental principles to your life. Do one thing. Find your purpose. This is the only way to produce genuinely valuable output which will inarguably bring you happiness, success and of course money. When you are choosing what to do with your life, imagine you stick to one thing, one craft, one goal. How would your success and skill rate in ratio with if you changed your mind every some years?

When you multitask, you don’t increase your ability. You decrease the quality of each individual task that consumes your given one. Learn to focus or accept mediocrity in all you produce.

    Don’t seek to be comfortable but be comfortable with an eternal search

    I packed my bag for Florence today. I don’t want to leave where I’ve been the past two weeks. It was paradise. My time here has been so great that a part of me is worried I won’t be able to match it at my next destination. Reminds me a lot about the stages of life. We cling on to things, not remembering every-thing changes. Perhaps if we understood that fact on a deep level, we would learn to appreciate more in the moment of happening, instead of taking it for granted and complain about the world ever changing.

    No empire stands forever, even Earth changed its crust 4 times over. Attachment will always end up in disappointment. Don’t dream of a euphoria to end up in which will never happen. There is no one moment of eternal satisfaction. In the end, the journey itself will become the item of pride. &

    – Don’t seek to be comfortable but be comfortable with an eternal search.

      The Truth Has No Relationship With Happiness

      Happiness is a state of acceptance and being content with all things that there are. Nothing else. It is your emotional reaction to the things you know as reality -whatever- that reality may be. You must expect nothing and accept everything. Happiness is a choice because at any level of being, you can choose to accept that reality and expect nothing more. It is a luxurious choice that as a tradeoff, the ones who aim at getting their names written in history books have not and will not ever attain. If acceptance happens, which is the single factor that causes happiness, trying will stop. When trying stops, when you have nothing to prove to anyone including yourself, no one will remember your name. Tragedy is the curse of all men who seek greatness.

      Today I visited the village of Resadiye, where as a kid my mom always used to take me to buy village grown honey and milk. The locals have seen me grow up since the age of 3. I heard word that they always watch me on the internet and also heard that I was back in town. We drove down to the village only to be greeted by cheerful children and smiling elders. I have never felt so loved in my life. I was hugged by 8 people at the same time, children were hugging my leg and pulling my shirt. One of the elders stepped forward and with teary eyes he looked at me and showed me my height with his hand at the time when he first knew me. He said, “Nazimcan? Is this you? My son, little one, little trouble maker Nazimcan, now in America being our national pride.” My memory was weak, because I was so little, I remembered everyone’s face but not the names. It didn’t matter. He continued “You are the Turkish nation’s number one advertisement in the new age that the world has entered”. Such an emotional moment. I tried to refuse the compliment in humility but he would not have it so I had to smile and oblige.

      No money. No constant rat race. No stress what so ever to erode their soul. I saw pure happiness. Do you what that means? Do you know how intense that is? That means that if any one of those people were to die right there, right at that moment, they would go away with a smile. What is more advanced? The art of happiness or the art of science? What is finding out the truth of how things work and what they really are if we can’t accept our own beings happily? It’s not that those people don’t know what technology is, it’s that they are content with how they are. They need no business with it, because the system they have makes them happy. Of course, in comparison in my entire time in America, the land of greatness (and I’m not mocking, it really is) I have never seen, met and spent time with people who are more unhappy, dissatisfied, insecure and worried. This constant state of being unsettled allows for constant trying and hard work but like I said, it is a tradeoff and you do trade your happiness in.

          There is a difference between Bravery & Stupidity, which is the -Purpose behind the action.

          Life is surely a thing of delicate balance in every one of its areas. The willingness to take action is no different. While most of the time, in the name of wisdom we talk about the need to take action, we often oversee the fact that most people do take action, but the wrong ones. There is no wheel, no sense of direction, no purpose. There are also actions taken in the name of pure bravado, which we categorize with the wrong actions unless of course, that pure “impress” factor is the purpose itself.

          Being brave is a rare thing amongst humans. The ability to override the sheep operating system. Apple OS XI Sheep. One of, if not the one single most virtuous character trait indeed. No one accomplished anything without courage and purpose-vision. Courage is the fuel that drives action and purpose is the wheel that steers you in a certain direction. From this analogy you can clearly see how important both are. Don’t waste the fuel, the energy of your youth on a path that is not steered by your vision. Your true vision is not the noise. It’s the silence. When in darkness, follow inner guidance. Close your eyes and listen to the silence. That is the closest you are going to get to finding out your purpose. The reason to be brave. The reason to risk it all. Otherwise you are just doing what I’m doing in the below picture, clearly not very clever and also you’re probably not looking as boss :)

            There is no good or evil in the Universe, except what Human -invented-

            The universe is like water. It has no morality and it doesn’t judge. It will reposition itself to accommodate an object or a situation that comes to be. Nothing gets rejected no matter what its nature, unless it is weaker than something else that competes. This is the most comforting thing you will learn when understanding -everything. Imagine, there is no judgement of anything. Anything and everything you are is -ok.

            I’d like to interrupt my writing with this incredible quote.

            Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements – the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life – weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today.

            ― Lawrence M. Krauss

            This is enlightening in more ways than one. It takes you to the root of morality. Something had to die through inexplicable violence which cannot even be described efficiently in human language for any of us, life, anything and everything we deem beautiful or good to exist. No need to mention how destructive they were but forget the Holocaust, Crusades, Nagasaki. Those are not even a mosquito’s bite compared to a star explosion. But, that had to happen for us to even be.

            Morality is a human invention. If an asteroid hits Earth and all human life ends, not a single cosmic fuck will be given. Moving on, that will just be the way things are, simply because it happened. Good and bad are precisely points of view and nothing else. When two forces collide, the universe helps neither and the stronger prevail.

            This is a very important concept to grasp, both to instill some humility in the way you think all things are right and that if you are weak, you will lose and nothing will protect you. Study this such way nature works and you will save yourself the “heartbreak”, “guilt”, “shame” and similar useless enemies of survival in the cosmos.

            Getting interested in the universe is so crucial to understand how small we are. Why is it important to understand that we are small? Not as an insult, but to know the truth of what we mean and where we stand. The vastness of the universe makes it all seem petty, all the things that cause worry and when we truly accept and bow at its beauty, its true ecstasy and you will eternally be happy.

            Personally, for me, true morality is Duality. Equal amount of destruction and creation is my true philosophy. That is the notion of ONEness that I always speak about. The acceptance of all things that there are. “Good” and …. guess what???? “Bad”.

            What are your thoughts? Is there a universal good or bad?

            Here are some great resources to give you a kickstart in your journey. Feel free to add to this list!

              Everything there -is, belongs. Simply because they -are

              You belong since the instant of your creation, simply because you are here. Build up the confidence to accept yourself, because the cosmos did. The system of all systems has allowed you to be here, you owe yourself that existential pride. When you are an outcast, you can feel like a freak or you can feel special. Your prosperity depends purely on your perception. Happiness is a choice you can make.

              Anything you can point to in your society that makes you feel strange is a social convention that was once not here. What is acceptable in today’s society was an outrage in the one past. That shows us that no convention ever is final and that is an eternal rule of this planet or any. If these values and notions are so fleeing with an overthrow of government why do we take it to heart so much? To a point where we let them make us feel like we are not right. Nothing is right. Otherwise they would stay and they don’t, so our emotions, judgement and values of existence are just as viable as anything a society may bring or take away.

              Millionaires can be in aching in pain, farmers can dance joyful in the rain, positivity is just a relative idea that lets you enjoy your life’s picture frame, feeling no shame of who you were and what you became.

                If you don’t say what you think and hold inside the thought conceived, you are a liar not to mention -a coward

                You have to live with that fact which inevitably effects your behavior in levels you don’t even realize but other people do. This recognition which they may not even admit to themselves will hurt and insult them much more than if you were to speak the truth. No matter how socially unacceptable it is, the moment of thought must be simultaneous with the moment of speech. Don’t give yourself time to restructure a delivery that you may think others will find appropriate. Show the courtesy of ultimate honesty by letting your mind free. Human beings recognize have the capability to recognize this on a primal level and no matter what is said, -they will respect you.

                I decided to call my writing “Mind Unleashed” because it is exactly that. I let my mind go absolutely free, running wild as if dreaming awake. Imagine all the thoughts you can possibly have, some as we can all admit are quite bizarre. I lift my social filter when expressing thought. Social filter is dishonest and suggests a political agenda that is ultimately governed by the reaction of others so you become what other people want to hear. That’s hollow. You will become a walking mirror without a reflection of its own. I choose to not have that filter and instead say anything that crosses my mind and proudly admit that I am often mislead or inaccurate about things. That is the beauty of it. I rather be corrected along the path of what I spur than to have never expressed a feeling or a thought. Lets also add, bless the creature that puts me into my place, teaches me something new for making me a better thinker.

                Somewhere along the way, in a natural processes these thoughts actualized themselves. There is no shame in that. I don’t judge my thoughts, most of the time I couldn’t even tell you if I actually agree with my thoughts. To approve or disapprove them is not my job. They just happen. The birth of a thought is how other people must connect to it. We live ultimate truth only when we have a -mind unleashed.
