When you define things precisely and clearly, you will better understand yourself and the world around you. You will know where you have been, where you are, and where you are going, and you will be able to steer your life in the direction you desire.
Think carefully before you speak.
Search for the correct words to describe what you have done, what you are doing, and where you are going. This also applies to how you talk to yourself.
Reduce the complexity of things - use the simplest possible way to describe them.
Be as specific as possible and things will become a lot simpler. When you are vague, you will never know what is one thing and what is another, as everything will bleed into everything else.
Define the exact nature of things around you.
Ask yourself questions like, “What do I want, exactly?” or “What is wrong, exactly?”
