Weekly Wisdom Newsletter #47
Published Date: September 15, 2019
Here are this week's chosen learning points:
Intuition vs. Logic: We shouldn't rely solely on logic nor solely on intuition. We should start with our intuition, then gather data to validate it. If there's a disagreement between your feelings and the data, slow down and figure out why. Then make an informed trade-off decision. (Source)
A Mantra to Try: Say "Yes, thank you" to things and events throughout the day. (Source) | The author, Pete Holmes, views it as a way to be more present; I found it to be really useful as a way to get rid of anger and annoyance via reframing.
Relationship Evolution: "As we get more mature and gain self-awareness, it's very normal for people to change. And hence what they like changes too. And the biggest mistake we can make in a relationship is expect people to stay the same or to always like the same things." -Jay Shetty
Here are this week's recommended actions:
For one decision this week, be very conscious about your intuition and the facts, and whether or not they align.
For one day, say "Yes thank you" throughout the day, especially at things that annoy you.
Reflect on whether if you are holding onto any outdated expectations in an important relationship.
