Seeking Wisdom

by Peter Bevelin

We have hold self-control as a high virtue since the earliest times, and that's why it is a staple in most religions and the moral of many myths.
Bibliotherapy

Bibliotherapy is the practice of encouraging reading for its therapeutic effect.

This first use of this term dates back to 1916 from an article named A Literary Clinic. In the article, the author describes a "bibliopathic institute" where reading recommendations are dispensed. The books must do something to you. They may be a stimulant, sedative, an irritant or a soporific.

Deep Work And Shallow Work
  • Deep work means those professional tasks that push your cognitive capabilities to their limit done in concentration mode (no distractions)
  • Shallow work relates to the tasks that do not require much cognitive work (logistical-style tasks) performed while distracted most of the time. They don't bring much new value in the world and are easy to duplicate.
We all worry

All people experience negative or troubling thoughts from time to time. Worry helps us to anticipate and prepare for the challenges in life.

But for some, worry can be persistent and overwhelming. People who worry a lot can become depressed and shift to a negative outlook on life.

The Anomaly Of Bad Events
  • Bad news, like a catastrophic event, war, or death, happens quickly and instantly, and spreads like wildfire. A bad event does not take time to manifest, though the foundations have been laid long back, off the radar.
  • Good things take time and happen so slowly that nobody notices that there have been gradual improvements and the problem has now declined or subsided.
Andy Benoit
"Most geniuses—especially those who lead others—prosper not by deconstructing intricate complexities but by exploiting unrecognized simplicities."
The nudge theory

Behavioral economists show that when humans make quick decisions under pressure, it is based mostly on intuition. They are unconsciously guided by biases and psychological fallacies.

The nudge theory suggests making subtle interventions to nudge people to make certain choices without restricting them. Putting the fruit at eye level counts as a nudge.

Reason and emotions in decision making

Decision making is a complex process, that engages both reasoning and emotions. Even the most emotional person uses rational thought when deciding, and even the most rational person is affected by emotions when making decisions.

Still, we often tend to highlight the negative role of emotions in decision making.

Social structure

Social structure is the organized set of social institutions and patterns of institutionalized relationships that together make up a society.

Social structures are not immediately visible, but they are always there and affect all dimensions of our experience. They operate on three levels: macro, meso, and micro levels.
