Joe M. Headsabout this book: We have all read the wise sayings of the most known philosophers throughout history, or at least those we heard of. Their wise sayings make us wiser, and are nice and amusing. They even sometimes affect our personality's development. But I did not find them actually influencing the daily life. That is why I created this series of books dealing with practical philosophy, displaying useful wisdom for our reality, for a better life. Every volume of this series deals with different evolving subjects, combining and following each other to the next part.
The main idea of a practical philosophy is that knowing and fully understanding the system on which we are working, leads to the most efficient solutions. I understood this idea from failing while trying to solve problems without knowing the subject well. To my surprise I meet grown people that didn't learn yet: – as they still offer solutions to problems they know nothing about. For example a car owner that has no clue about mechanics deciding what parts the car mechanic must replace?! And there are similar problems with professions which are not known completely and are handled through fixed formulas or by trial and error. In medicine for example – they don't always succeed because no one fully knows the body's systems of life.
An important advantage of the practical philosophy lifestyle is the confidence you can approach many situations in life, and then achieve tranquility and peace, because you will shake away the frustration and many worries – a result which I have arrived to. With your understanding situations you can change also habits.
The second volume focuses on thinking about behaviors that come from habits we acquire throughout our lives without examining them. Because of the mighty power of our habits, we have trouble getting rid of them. They were created in the distant past in order to avoid trouble or to make us feel better, but they are forever kept for the sake of personal security.
