Non-actionable idea February 23, 2010

Posted by ethlite in Uncategorized.

I came up with the term non-actionable idea today while talking to my friend. Basically it means thoughts and beliefs that don’t lead to anything you can actually act upon.

Every time you find yourself thinking about something but can’t seem to get anywhere, ask yourself, what would you do differently based on the answer? If you can’t come up with anything, then it’s a NAI.

As in, “don’t waste your time worrying about why Lindsay Lohan is such a mess, or who Shakira is dating, it’s all NAI”. Other examples include intellectual dead ends such as “is there a God” and “is there life after death” also qualify.

This is why I don’t watch TV or what mass media refer to as “news”, it’s mostly just NAIs that you can safely ignore, saving your time and energy on things do matter to you.
