Is there such a thing as trying too hard? In other words you want something that is difficult to achieve (such as a job, a friend, money, drugs, food, love, enlightenment, good thoughts, heaven etc.) yet you reach a point early on when you were trying way too hard for it and you ended up not getting want you wanted. The idea is that whatever we want is more simply achieved. Mathematically, this would mean
dang i’m too high I forgot what I meant.

nice oxymoron in the tread name there:)

@richard: there’s always a why, it’s just that sometimes the why doesn’t make sense, or is not good enough for us humans.

Yes, there is such a thing as trying too hard, and most people do it constantly.

First of all TRYING doesn’t lead anywhere, it’s neither doing nor not doing, it’s just dumb. Don’t try, DO.

Second, struggle is pretty much pointless. Struggling is nothing other than doing shit wrong, if you do it right there’s no struggling. No exceptions. Struggling is you fighting yourself, as is trying. Trying too hard means trying and struggling, it’s really dumb but for a socially conditioned person it makes so much sense to do, because that’s how we’re raised to behave. FUCK THAT SHIT.

Trying and struggling is pointless. Take a step back, have a few deep breaths and just fucking LOOK at the problem, drop all negative shit thoughts. I’m not joking when I’m saying life becomes ridiculously easy and fun. It’s like having cheat codes. Except these really aren’t cheat codes, this is the way it’s SUPPOSED TO BE, and that other fucked up reality of trying and shit is just a fucked up virus.

Stop trying, start DOING.

This thread is awesome.

Do or do not, there is no try.

You only “try” at things you don’t know how to do – and if what you “tried” didn’t work, then you “try” something else. If you know how to do something, you just do it.

Perhaps that’s where we’re all getting confused.

@ BirdFlyingHigh, yes I agree. When you are experiencing an experience you’re not really thinking about try. Nietszche said that life is about a conflict between tasting and taste. I think it’s good to encourage people to follow their bliss and to just do what they are working towards, but it’s also important to encourage people to try to find what they want. Scientific Method.
