Good post on how people reason and how people manage their lives. "Most of the choices we make each day are believed to be the products of well-considered, rational decisions based on knowledge, but they are not. They are repeating patterns, habits." Most of your life, writes Esko Kilpi, is run on autopilot. This can be dangerous - "neither the brain nor the people in a tightly knit community can, in the end, tell the difference between a bad habit and a good habit." This is why it is important to seek out a wide range of diverse experiences, to shake up our day-to-day by meeting new people and taking on new challenges. "The productivity suites of tomorrow are going to be a combination of sensors, big data and quantified-self technologies. When used together, these create totally new opportunities for live feedback, daily reflection and iterative change. And, most importantly – based on our unique context and our own unique storyline."
