Add some chaos to your life

We avoid acting in uncertainty. And because we cannot act on what we don’t know, our lives become incredibly repetitive and safe.

A certain amount of chaos is healthy. It stimulates growth and change and passion and excitement.

MORE IDEAS FROM THEARTICLE

Stop Taking Things Personally
  • When people criticize you or reject you, it has way more to do with them,(their values, their priorities, their life situation) than it does with you.
  • When something you do fails, it doesn’t mean you are a failure as a person; you are a person who happens to fail sometimes.
  • When something tragic happens and you suffer, remember that hardship is part of choosing to live.

Why we hold on to our beliefs

Our beliefs are not simply ideas that we hold to be true; they make up key components of our identity. 

And to question those beliefs means to fundamentally question who we are as a person, which is really painful.

Being wrong

You’re going to be wrong a lot in life. You’re going to be wrong pretty much all of the time. 

And in many ways, your ability to succeed and learn over the long-term is directly proportional to your ability to change what you believe in response to your ignorance and mistakes.

RELATED IDEAS

  • We have many things screaming for our attention every minute of the day and we often trick ourselves into believing they’re more important than a conversation unfolding right in front of us.
  • We have a biological challenge, too: We can listen about three times faster than anyone can talk. That means we have excess capacity in our brain that will wander off and entertain itself unless we take steps to intentionally manage it.

Inversion

Is the way of thinking in which you consider the opposite of what you want.

Inversion puts a spotlight on errors and roadblocks that are not obvious at first glance. What if the opposite was true? What if I focused on a different side of this situation? Instead of asking how to do something, ask how to not do it.

"It's important to make the individual you are speaking with feel heard and understood. If you're not engaged in the conversation, you can come off as being rude, selfish, or that you just don't care."
