By and large, a lot of people base their experience of reality on frames of understanding and perception that they develop in times when they are more vulnerable. The result is that we get beliefs and therefore actions that tend to fly in the face of what we, as humans, are hardwired to respond to.
Examining the behaviours of how we function, our interaction pattens, we can see a type of logic behind the human operating system that brings a certain amount of predictability into our model. We must examine both the good and the bad, looking at “what is” rather than “what could be”.
Doing this, I arrived at the three starting principles I use to understand all human behaviour which governs our genetic blueprint. I’ll go over each of these in more detail in the future, but suffice it to say, just having these three in mind will help you see more signal than noise in the world around you.
1 - No one is an island unto themselves
2 - Emotion trumps logic
3 - Context is king
Taking these as our starting points, the world is our oyster, and self-development is put into perspective that helps us a lot more.
