A few weeks ago, I struggled with writing an essay. I had a story about how my Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) partner, after getting choked said, “That was awesome!” The dichotomy was really interesting, but I couldn’t think of anything else to say. I forgot that there’s writing for yourself and there’s writing for other people.
"Humans learn through analogy, not logic. We need narratives that we identify with, we need examples we can relate to."
It seems obvious, but obvious is not.
Narratives are the plates on which to carry the food we want to serve.
Good job Chris.
""Motivation doesn't lead to action, action leads to motivation" - struthless This same principle has been championed by the rising neuroscience star Andrew Huberman. It's not just a motivating concept, it's proven brain chemistry. What a massively important distinction to take to heart right now, especially since we somehow got wired to believe the opposite.
