What’s The Right Answer?

In a world where we have limitless access to information, it would seem like we would have all the correct answers everywhere and anywhere we go. 

How could we be any further from the truth? 

Just like our schooling systems, a simple knowledge-based test is not a signal that students understand a subject. 

More than just the facts, there’s a layer of something less tangible, harder to tame, and difficult to persuade—our worldview. 

Everybody has one, and everyone’s is different. It acts almost like a filter for all the incoming information we seek. 

Our worldviews get to decide whether or not something or someone is wrong. 

It’s more than just the facts. It’s also what people believe in. 


No Need For a Microphone

You don’t have to be the loudest in the room. You only have to worry about creating things that people will care about (if they care about it enough, they will be loud for you).


Stuff Happens

And when it does, it sucks for a while. 

The good news is that we get used to stuff all the time. 

It also has a name. The phenomenon of getting used to stuff is called hedonic adaptation. 

Hedonic adaptation shows us that despite positive or negative events, we inevitably find our balance and stabilize.

We intrinsically perform the balancing act even when we don’t want to.

While things might suck for a bit, we find our moments of peace and solace to keep sane. It happens.
