Know thyself

Self-awareness is a vehicle for making better decisions. It’ll prevent you from the pitfalls of time-wasting, confusing busyness with productivity, and force you to reconsider the importance of stepping back to think. 

The external world fights for your attention so it can rattle you. Email, negativity, and breaking news never go out of stock. Instead of cracking around the edges and yielding to data exhaust, we can sharpen on our focus on what really matters. 

Self-perception is a passport to freedom. It hedges against the tyranny of algorithms that try to dictate culture.

Once we jump in and out of the information loop, things come into place. We dictate the landscape, exploring detours and paving the way to explore a world of intelligent questions.
