Life & Philosophy

Going through the motions

We’re creatures of habit. It’s only nerve-racking on the first try. After that, we get used to it.

We can get used to anything

We can become a New Yorker after growing up in the countryside. We can morph into a banker after years of studying to be a scientist or doctor. We can get used to paying on your phone instead of carrying around cash. We can become a Facebook user after years of resistance.

Don’t think where we’re at now is always going to be the same. Stagnancy is the enemy.

People are more elastic than they think. Humans adapt to new tools and new surroundings like animals in the wild. Do folks still believe that we should avoid the Internet, the modern day version of water?

Don’t be a predictable and aging algorithm. Remain open to the possibility of change and adapt accordingly.
