Out maneuver Yourself

Our ability to forecast motivations leads us to form expectations. Conforming to our predictions, we extrapolate seemingly rational actions or behaviors.

This most often looks like a crafted argument dropped onto the unsuspecting. Or we create a routine for optimal results so complicated (obsessive) that we can’t remember.

This excessive manufacturing and maneuvering becomes second nture: a series of defenses. Unfortunately, they prevent us from encountering the world as it is.
