If you adopt this model, you will perceive the world as a place of cues surrounding you, and you will focus too much on yourself. But the world is fundamentally not a place of cues surrounding you, which you can just optimize and rearrange to your liking. Rather it’s a place of relationship.
The reason anyone wants good habits in the first place is to bloom fully. But the proper blooming of a tree doesn’t occur in isolation, it depends on the forest too.
So we have to take a much wider view of the world, one where relationship is central.
You can optimize your current actions or discover a new action using the formula of the Perceived Value of an Action,
Value = Reward/Work
Nothing captures the essence of a good life better than a tree flourishing.
A good life is one where we continuously grow, manifest our potential and put forth our best fruit.
Your best life is the one in which you fully bloom like a tree and all 4 of these components must come together to result in full bloom.
The fruits represent the actions that the tree uses to create new opportunities for others.
It represents the way in which the tree gives back to and helps sustain the forest which it is a part of and has depended on.
There are 4 main components: soil, relationships, roots and fruits.
1️⃣ The soil question: What does opportunity look and feel like to me?
2️⃣ The relationship question: What does a symbiotic relationship look and feel like to me?
3️⃣ The roots question: What does having a good root system look and feel like to me?
What does the process of building out a good root system look and feel like to me?
4️⃣ The fruits question: What does it look and feel like to produce my best fruit?
