Doing Insight Based Work

There are three basic ways to perform insight based work.

  1. Inspired conversations with people a little further down the path then you.
  2. Mindfulness Meditations, observation without judgement
  3. Writing

I find those are the three ways to gain insight. But no matter which way you go you have to do the hard yards. You have to put the work in that ‘can’ eventually lead to insight. You can’t read and get it. You can’t hack it. There’s no follow these 7 steps. And it isn’t knowledge. In this instant gratification world we find ourselves in people are exposed to all sort of quick tricks or that one knowledge nugget. But the truth is there is no such thing. I’m more on par with anti-life hacking, otherwise we are butchering the fundamentals and the process.
