THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE
A QUICK OUTLINE OVERVIEW
Very rough draft, but the essence is here
Viewpoint: From the individual's viewpoint only (the "collective" is "made up", to help the individual)
positive value units
How do I get "there"?
Choices (and in between)
The effective way
The ineffective way (often the "default" way, "learn as life goes...")
I run my life by choosing what will have the greatest life value effect per amount of time/effort.
If the effect disappears immediately, then there is "no effect" that exists beyond the moment, so...
What disappears has zero value, except for its general impression on the memory (= I've lived a good
life, I am good, etc.)
Super-question #1: So, then, of course, I just need to ask what is of value that will help me to
produce the greatest life value (accumulated, enduring happiness value units) - and then do it.
Super-question #2: How can I get that value in the most workable way? (The answer is "life productivity".)
The answer (duh!): Learning, then designing the way to get there.
Anyone can learn to do virtually anything another person has learned (except certain extremes) Must use "sequential step by step" learning, with all the links (see Mastery Learning)
Obviously there are many pieces to this, with what follows being the best strategy:
Learn the overviews first, then decide where to drill deeper, using a systematic learning program
Special kick starter: Get rid of the barriers (the biggest ones first), distracters
