In advertisements all the time we can hear, that if we don't buy the car or we don't go for holidays into the determined place, we won't certainly be fulfilled, we won't experience pleasure. But it is an illusion.
Some philosophers thought that we have subordinating values of the life which are most essential for the man, to lower, financial values. We think that we should above all work, to consume, to collect and in this way to arrange oneself life. And when for ourselves we already organise them, we are reaching a conclusion that it, most importantly, already fled us.

That it is possible to say the paradox of this situation consists in it, that with cost of the life we are arranging ourselves life.

Scheler is paying attention for very interesting, that is phenomenon of the asceticism which badly is most often understood.
Incessantly arranging ourselves life, we are putting the pleasure of the life off on later. Very much clearly one can see it, when for people careers in corporations are collapsing: much they are earning, are investing in flats, furniture, good cars, but at some point are making themselves aware: for every that's all, since all the time I am sitting at the work?

They are pressed for time to the walk, the reading and friends. They don't have a time for life. In such a way that he is times suddenly, wanting to free onself, that's all are throwing. And are going into world.

Only then they understand that it will be sufficient to have two sweaters, two pairs of trousers, shoes and it is possible to be a happy man, to experience the pleasure of the life.

“The best thing a human being can do is to help another human being know more.”— Charlie Munger
“Go to bed smarter than when you woke up.”— Charlie Munger
Most people go though life not really getting any smarter. Why? They simply won’t do the work required. It’s easy to come home, sit on the couch, watch TV and zone out until bed time rolls around. But that’s not really going to help you get smarter.
But you can acquire knowledge if you want it. 
In fact there is a simple formula, which if followed is almost certain to make you smarter over time. It involves a lot of hard work.You need to be critical and always thinking. You need to do the mental work required to hold an opinion. Finding the time to read is easier than you think. One way to help make that happen is to carve an hour out of your day just for yourself. 
We should not forget Umberto Eco words: who is reading books, lives doubly.

In 1997 campaigners for the Talkeetna mayor not appeal reported to residents and Ms Lauri Stec gaves a change for someone intresting.
Mr Stubbs had half some year at that time, was red and striped. The local lawyer invented a loophole in the regulations, so the candidacy of the cat had to be formally registered. Already in the first round capturing Stubbs ¾ of voices and he ruined remaining candidates, won an election. What's interesting, it turned out, that - then again in accordance with the law - the city council could divide everyday duties between, very few, of clerks of the municipality, and alone once in the quarter took strategic decisions by vote.

He is fundamentally working in the field, patrolling the small town. He is being known very well for residents and everywhere is meeting with words of the sympathy and the support.

Talkeetna residents are very pleased with the mayor. How Andi Farrar is saying, the boss of a local chamber of commerce: "it is the ideal mayor, best at any time we had which. He isn't increasing tax - we don't have even a sales tax - isn't implementing unnecessary restrictions in leading the business activity, and above all, very much a positive effect on the tourism, underlying our economy has. Every day minimum 50 asks tourists about him, is doing photographs just with him, and is doing the advertising of our town with his side on FB, a bulk of reports is also flowing in which the staff of the municipality obligatorily is answering. He is an only defect, that the mayor often sleeps at the work, but also then remains the photogenic pride of the city exceptionally. "

This uncanny history is evidence of distance towards the power and the lack of the need of having leaders in the society.

I was fascinated by the recent book, Daily Rituals: How Artists Work. Author Mason Curry examines the schedules of 161 painters, writers, and composers, as well as philosophers, scientists, and other exceptional thinkers.
As I read, I became convinced that for these geniuses, a routine was more than a luxury — it was essential to their work. As Currey puts it, “A solid routine fosters a well-worn groove for one’s mental energies and helps stave off the tyranny of moods.”  I began to notice several common elements in the lives of the healthier geniuses that allowed them to pursue the luxury of a productivity-enhancing routine:
A workspace with minimal distractions
A daily walk.
Accountability metrics.
A clear dividing line between important work and busywork.
A habit of stopping when they’re on a roll, not when they’re stuck.
A supportive partner
Limited social lives
And that of course is what a routine really is — the path we take through our day. Whatever we break that trail ourselves or follow the path blazed by our constraints, perhaps what’s most important is that we keep walking.

The majority from us think that only one way exists to the dream: we are going to bed during the evening and we are sleeping at night, from 6 up to 8 hours, and next we are getting up and we remain active through about 16 hours. When a night is coming, we are repeating this process.
Scientists testing the theory of the dream are explaining, that most important in every cycle the circuit is working REM. roughly including the thing, in it is this phase our brain really is resting and is regaining forces.
However it isn't only way of the dream. From one of processes of the dream which they practised among others has always fascinated me will give to Vinci or Napoleon.
This cycle consists in having short naps for lengths of 20-30 minutes, as 4 hours. altogether these 6 naps are giving to ‎ a day which essentially are providing the body with from 2 up to 3 hours of the dream per day.

Persons which apply this system, are claiming that he is one of the most efficient modes of rest. Applying this standard causes, that, when we are waking up, us is bursting with energy. Moreover, he is supporting also deliberate dreaming. However a need for rigorous warning hours is a weak point of this solution of naps, because, otherwise, we will be feeling incredible tired out and deprived of the energy.

Somehow so recently I cannot wake up. Unimportant which I will lie down about to sleep, I have a morning hardkor on eyelids. That is since in contrast with the nature instead of awake oneself from the winter dream, I only into it am falling - I decided to focus myself and to spite everything, but first of all oneself - I am setting the alarm clock on sixth.
I am getting to the best way myself.
In the certain incentive guide I read at one time about the way for the organization of working hours which consists in planning every activity with the accuracy to the hour. At first I thought that it was an absurd idea. What with the spontaneity, by chance? Later I watched him more close and I noticed the method in this frenzy. Now I am not imagining the better way for the organization.
Beginning the day of the most time and the energy we are losing on giving some thought to it, what next to do. Having a specified plan, all dilemmas are out of the question.
In the given hour to a maximum we are concentrating on the concrete task, being aware of a limited time. This being mad is motivating me.
Concentrate on your work with redoubled strength, and then enjoy the freedom and the freedom.

Eustace Conway is in Poland a little-known form, however in America is somebody resembling our Wojciech Cejrowski - albeit not entirely. This is man, which "as the seventeen-year-old he settled in the wilderness and thirty years later still there are being". It is a man which lives as the nomad, lives in his Native American teepee and is a beaver. Eustace has a mission: to persuade people not to live in boxes, didn't go by boxes, didn't visit each other in boxes of other people. It was his practical purpose, although it is perhaps still, impelling like of the largest number of people so that live close as possible natures, they used solutions, which centuries were invented by their ancestors ago. For that purpose he forms his paradise, his pipe dream, Turtle Island. It is huge stretch of forest, where Eustace is growing vegetables, animals, he is hunting, is drinking water from the stream, and next hippies, idealists and environmentalists are joining him... in order equally fast to walk away. Because Eustace isn't a man, which what in the morning is being broken at dawn and is running on wet grass. At dawn Eustace is working, is labouring.
Eustace is a man, which is impossibles missing. Horseback, along with the two of friends, he is travelling across America crosswise, in such a time, nobody before it achieved which. When people met on his road declared that they would also like to bring themselves to something such crazy, answered without a shadow of a doubt in the voice: "you can!".
He loves his mountain heritage, the ideals of self-sufficiency and thoughts such as ,,Use it up, wear it out, make it or do without''.
