Cognitive dissonance happens to us daily. It makes us uneasy and we then try to fight it by deluding ourselves. Usually, we can’t do much about it. But what we can do is to acknowledge it and change our behaviour and thinking.
A while ago, I stumbled upon a project that strives to identify all viruses dangerous to humans and prevent future viral outbreaks. The Global Virome Project
wants to identify about 700,000 viruses and extracting information for developing vaccines and countermeasures for future outbreaks. What I like most about it is the shift in their mindset…they want to proactively
take measures to protect us from outbreaks. Instead of reactively
waiting for the outbreak to arrive and solving the situation afterwards (what we do now).
is a doctor and Youtuber, who recently uploaded a video about using Notion
for storing links an other interesting stuff. It’s called a “Resonance Calendar” and I’m using something very similar. The video is very helpful for those starting with Notion and exploring its many use cases. He’s got some pretty great content that might also be interesting to you.
As you may know, I also publish on Medium
and now and then an article gets published in a publication. This time it was The Power Of Choice
from last week and it’s getting quite a few views and some responses.
An interesting quote from Warren Buffet
“You’re not right or wrong because 1,000 people agree with you. And you’re not right or wrong because 1,000 people disagree with you. You’re right because your facts and your reasoning are right.” - Warren Buffett
