Design your behaviour according to  your goal
  • Instead, plan your goals and then design behaviours in accordance with those goals
  • If some behaviours go against your instincts, deliberately go further than feels intuitive to you to accomplish your goals.

See the problem with a third-person perspective
  • When we go with our gut we often choose our go-to behaviour as the solution to the problems that we are analyzing 
  • For example, if we are extremely optimistic then we overestimate our skills 
  • Whereas when we are really pessimistic we tend to stick just to our weaknesses and we ignore all the points that are in our favour

  • So to conclude when you are thinking about some important mission to be taken 
  • Never go with your gut take your time trying to analyze the pros and cons with a third-person perspective
  • And etch out the desired outcome as your first step and then think backwards the fastest and most efficient way of reaching that target
