  • Recognise that the second experience will never be a replica of the first experience. On the contrary, it will always vary to some degree.
  • Looking for the novelty in the repeat experience will feel engaging.
  • Recognise that events are neither positive nor negative. It's how we view the events that make them positive or negative. If we look to find the experience enjoyable, we'll find evidence for it.

Asking The Wrong Questions

Nowadays, we tend to consume too much of our energy exerted upon the wrong questions. Whenever we’re feeling lost, we’re promoted to ask ourselves these rational questions:

  • “What do I want?”
  • “Who do I want to become?”
  • “What do I want my life to look like in five years?”
  • “How can I achieve the success I so desperately crave in my field?”

These are not exactly the right questions we should begin with. They assume you know exactly what it is you want, and that’s often not the case. They also tend to be self-centered and thus neglect to factor in the potential impact we will have on others.

We pay for what matters. When someone does unpaid and unacknowledged work, it can mean they don't matter in other ways.

  • One United Nations report found women do three out of every four hours of unpaid labour. It leads to reduced earnings.
  • When women get paid for their work, everyone benefits. Women's economic empowerment contributes to growing economies.
  • An analysis from Oxfam estimated unpaid care work done by women was worth at least $10.8 trillion annually.
