Sometimes we think about how we got here! We need to get out of the way and not think about what we’re doing. We can’t just pick up a few things and start thinking about it. Think about how many things have changed in the last 15 years or so.
Yonsk, sometimes the world seems too big and hard to comprehend, so we start to get obsessed with what we can remember and forget what there is left to think about. We can forget because we forget to stop and think about things, but we can also be overwhelmed and distracted by the fact that we can’t remember.
When we’re on autopilot, we’re supposed to listen. When we have a conversation with a friend, sometimes we’re supposed to listen to him. We can also be overwhelmed and confused by the fact that we don’t have a chance to think about what was wrong before we started our conversation.
The best way to learn is to remember. The hardest way to learn is to forget. This is why I call it “yonkes”. It’s not about forgetting, it’s about learning again.
This is the point where I start to get in trouble. What am I saying? I am talking about forgetting is not just about remembering, not just about remembering and remembering again, but about becoming aware of what you did in the past and learning from it.
The problem with the internet is that it is a bunch of people who are all constantly talking at the same time. They are all trying to sell you something and they are all trying to convince you that they are the best that there is. They are all trying to convince you that you need to buy them things and that you need to listen to them. That if you don’t buy them things you need to go somewhere else that you’ll get more of their stuff.
The problem is that they all want the same thing, and that is power. This is why it is so important to become aware of our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions. When we do, we can change them, or at least change our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions.
The yonkes are a bit like the little kids who grow up to play video games and just go off and play them all the time. When they grow up, they become incredibly powerful, and we have no idea what they are capable of unless we check them out. They are so confident that they are going to get everything they want that they don’t care if they don’t.
I can only imagine how much fun it must be to simply do nothing for a period of time, then be the one to find out the next week that you have a bunch of guns, a ton of money, and a life-changing mission. Then the next week find out you have no idea what the mission is, but you know you want to. The power of the yonke is the thing of it is that the more you see them, the more you know they can do.
The yonke is the person who sees someone with their whole life ahead of them, yet they just decide to let it all fade away. The yonke is the person that knows that you are going to get out of what you are doing next and you are going to move on to the next thing even if you have no idea what it is.
