Today’s Principle to Follow:
Principle #11: Engage in Personal Experiments with the World Around You.
Do not rely fully on the experiments of scientists, or the word of the media. Science although very valuable to society, is not perfect. Science is run by scientists with their own biases and expectations, and their own careers to run. They are biased to finding what they want to find just as much as you’re biased to want to succeed in your own life. In the long run science takes us in the right direction, but the most recent findings should be taken in somewhat skeptically. Rather than rely fully on the new findings of scientists and the media, who use populations that may not even represent you (often rats or college students), you can run your own experiments. It is as simply as trial and error. Try something and see if it works. Start small, don’t risk too much on your personal experiments.
The world is constantly changing and evolving, and everyone is in such a unique circumstance, that you may be better off testing for yourself what works and what doesn’t, rather than reading what worked for other people who could be completely different from you. When you experiment, continue to try different things. Take mental or written notes on what works more often, and what doesn’t work. When you figure out one problem, move on to the next experiment. It is fun, entertaining, and you will learn fast from it. Finding interesting experiments to perform in your daily life can be quite interesting and rewarding.
