How to go boldly where no one has gone before

You know, I mostly write these weeks and even months in advance so I can just do some other stuff but this time I decided not to go that route and instead we will talk about a topic which I think many of you have noticed becoming a problem. Banality. I don’t know about you but for most people I know, summer is a time of boredom and slacking which means even if you want to work on a project half the team will be someplace else meaning you have to stall the time with games, movies, animes etc. Even if you decide to practice something on your own, you simply cannot find the motivation for it. We could ramble on why of it for weeks and fill half a dozen novels and 2 coloring books but instead I would like to focus on how to go beyond this and perhaps how to do things that others never done before or as Star Trek calls it “going boldly where no one has ever gone before”.

As I sat in my 20m^2 room and asked what have I done this whole summer beside beating games like a black hole sucking the mass around it, I realised, not much but instead of going on with that I simply wrote down what I did and what it added to me. Then I took a walk and wrote down the effects and only after writing I realized I had proof for not doing it and reason not to like it… as a document none the less. This is a simple example of trying something new and deciding if it worths your time or not. Actually many philosophers when debating or working write down those problems and directly counter them just like a General making a battle plan against enemy formation. Das Kapital itself is (according to what I heard) pretty much that focusing on Capitalism. Now that we have mentioned to what it applies and why you should use it, lets talk about HOW you should use it. There is no concrete answer to that but most people including myself prefer SWOT analysis.

By finding and methodically eliminating errors there is theoretically no problem you can solve so while you are at it you might as well invent an FTL (faster than light) drive and go boldly where no one has ever gone before.

Reminds me of a debate in business school Exploration over exploitation and my point of view is "while we exploit ways/methods/solutions/systems that already work, we should always explore for better alternatives" (yes I just quoted myself)

Nothing ventured, Nothing gained.
