Philosophy is your comprehensive view of the universe. Your understanding of the world around you, that you use subconsciously, every moment of the day, to make all the decisions in your life.
Because you are alive, you will eventually die. Making bad decisions, like smoking or stepping in front of a bus, could bring about a premature end to the life that you cling to.
If you could, wouldn’t you choose to make correct decisions 100% of the time? Or at least as close to 100% as a rational person could expect?
Our philosophy guides, not what we think, but how we think. If you find yourself struggling to solve problems and wondering if you are jinxed, you are probably operating with an inconsistent philosophy. That is to say, there are good philosophies and bad philosophies. I’m hoping this book will help you find a better one than the one you currently have.
