At its simplest, ethics is a system of moral principles. They affect how people make decisions and lead their lives.

Ethics is concerned with what is good for individuals and society and is also described as moral philosophy.

The term is derived from the Greek word ethos which can mean custom, habit, character or disposition.

Overwhelmed With Clutter

Clutter can be defined as anything that keeps us from living the life we are meant to lead, anything that stops us from our accomplishments and the true joy of living.

We clutter everything. Our homes, cars, storage compartments, offices, phones, and even our minds are filled with more clutter than we can possibly manage.

There are 5 kinds of clutter — which one is filling your life?

Most people jump straight from finding a problem to attempting to solve it.

Having a systematic approach to how you deal with problems, as opposed to just going by gut and feelings, can make a big difference in how you creatively find answers to your obstacles.

Practising Failure
  • We all normally learn from our mistakes, getting to know how to not handle something or what not to do in a situation.
  • Most of our failures happen while we are trying our best to succeed. No one actively seeks failure and makes deliberate mistakes to gather learning.
  • No amount of preparation can help us in various obstacles, and failure becomes the rite of passage to increase our adaptability, flexibility and eventual mastery in any skill.
There are two kinds of historical events to learn from
  • Specific events. Their usefulness is limited to particular events that will not be repeated in the exact same way. What did this person do right, or wrong? What ideas worked? What strategies failed?
  • Broad behaviours that repeatedly surface in many fields and eras. These behaviours are often ignored. How do people think about risk? How do they react to surprise? What motivates them, cause them to be overconfident, or unsure?

  4. Unimportant/Not Urgent quadrants are dropped.

Inattention caused by multitasking

Recent research describes multitasking as paying insufficient attention to multiple things at once.

Another new study found it is even worse than that - it prevents people from remembering what they've done and seen, especially is they move from screen to screen.

Using multiple devices at once is causing your memory to fail, study finds

Logical Fallacies

Logic is fundamental to most of humanity’s knowledge, but there are common fallacies in logic and reasoning, errors of judgement which happen due to:

  1. Our assumptions based on what we see and deduct around us.
  2. The mistaken thinking that logic is always intuitive.

The Observer Effect

Most people overlook the effect that people have when someone is observing them. There is a difference in the behaviour of people, animals and atoms when they are being observed.

Though it is not a universal effect, observing living things does change them, and in the case of atoms, it can result in unpredictable behaviour.
