"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.

Thanks so much for the shout out, Chris! (And apologies it took me this long to realize that you did so. I’m still learning the Substack app.)

Thank you also for the support you gave me during the recent writing sprint. Finally I trained BJJ for a number of years before having my first son. What has your experience been like?
