We are able to store huge amount of data in DNA and bacteria. It is not unimaginable to think of ourselves as some advanced robots. But if we are robots, and the things we think about are data, then surely there is some way we can make use of more data.
If more data helps to make more accurate decisions and helps solve more problems, we would want more data.
Yet, we often describe our problems and emotions with one or two simple words. I am “happy”, “stressed”, or “sad”. I have a “huge problem”. Susan David, a psychologist, mentioned that accurate description of our emotion helps us to find the cause of emotion.
We are already limited by our language and we even constrain ourselves further with less words. I think, there is a mental barrier to thinking. Subconsciously, we believe thinking is hard work. Yet, the actual office work of finding more data is hundred times worse. .
Thinking is not hard work. If we want to improve our lives and our decision making, we need more data. We need to think more.
So much for rest day. Over 33,000 steps, ran an OK 4km and completed the day with ab crunches. Weather has been very inspirational, and for once very warming.
The main photo is of me about to tackle a hill that always does me in, it may not seem much, but it is steep. Today I conquered this with ease and felt great, hence the smile.
So 2nd half... this went on for a good half an hour before I even reached this point but watch this space - I PROMISE you, within a couple of months I’m gon’ be rocking these #headstands
Talk about testing my bloody patience and perseverance (if you can stand to watch it, I do hold myself with feet off the door for a few seconds...)
