Aside from your jeans, the only reason you're smarter than other people is the fact that when you were a kid you asked more "why" questions than necessary. Don't ask too many questions. If you look far enough ahead, nothing is worth doing because you deprive yourself of the journey and get to the end result, the effect of which will shortly wear off.
Also, empty your mind and be like water. Last one messed up by my laptop monitor.
