Brute Force

February 24, 2011

When it comes to doing anything at life, I use only one tactic: brute force! If I can’t get something done at first, I keep on trying until I get it to work, and get things to work well. Of course, this way of living life is not for everyone, and tends to be pretty makeshift, sloppy, maybe even savage (thus, “brute”). But it’s guaranteed to get the job done, and get it done well. It’s just a matter of time.

Using brute-force tactics, anyone can accomplish anything they want or need to– it’s just a matter of time and the willingness to commit to the end, regardless of what obstacles may stand in one’s path. If you don’t know something, learn it– if you lack the skills, gain them, if you need connections, build that social equilibrium. If it doesn’t work, you can make it work, forging a new reality along the way if necessary. That kind of can-do-no-matter-what mindset is what drives me, and will continue to bring greater improvement (and eventually perfection) to my life.

Brute force is not necessary a planning-free strategy; rather, it’s just not the aspect of living responsible for planning. If one were to cover all three aspects of living a successful life, it would be a total of three primary triads: Brute Force, Engineered Perfection (planning), and Unshakable Resolve; these three I have in previous posts referred to as “Desire”, “Control”, and “Commitment”, respectively; the same message holds true, except that more emphasis is placed on the equal amount of necessity of each of these three.

But it all starts with Brute Force: we move before we crawl, crawl before we walk, and walk before we run. It all starts with the desire to succeed– at that point we can direct that energy towards a particular mold (plan) through which that energy to manifest, and finally the resolve (perseverance) to follow-through with that plan, until its eventual culmination, makes all things possible, and possibilities a reality.
