The most successful people in all arenas of life are basically just sticking to the basics and doing the simple stuff over and over again until they get to where they want to go. It doesn't matter if you are studying to be a monk or a business mogul like Warren Buffet. The monk gets up every morning, does some work around the monastery and then gets on with his studies and meditation. Warren Buffet gets up every day, does whatever it is he has to do and then sits down and studies the market for up to 8 hours. There is no advanced formula to peace, success or happiness. They are all just the result of sticking to the same basics and becoming better and better through practice. The cool thing about sticking to the basics is that often times you will start seeing results very quickly and the results will keep improving the more you stick with it. Likewise, the solution to liberating yourself from the mind made prison is quite simple. Pick one or two concepts that you really like and start focusing on them in your everyday life.

“We all are learning, modifying, or destroying ideas all the time. Rapid destruction of your ideas when the time is right is one of the most valuable qualities you can acquire. You must force yourself to consider arguments on the other side.
— Charles T. Munger”
