As humans, we are terrible at reasoning. We feel first and rationalize later. We selectively pick the evidence we want to hear and stick to it protectively. We are excellent at thoroughly dissecting other people and systems of thought, but we often fail to see the rules which govern our own systems and behaviors. For these reasons and many others, we are also terrible at converting desire into action, but I’d like to focus on one of the biggest goal-killers facing trainees today: information overload.
