Double Bind? Go Straight Ahead
When you do a lot of thinking, you’ll eventually ended up with double bind. Which reflected in our sleep or rather the lack of it. To end the bind would means to think less and act more spontaneously. It’s scary. It’s risky. But going straight ahead is the only true strategy in life.
We kept thinking over and over — with hundred of simulations in our head — as how should we maximized our gain while limiting our losses. But we can’t find a solution. All we had is even more plethora of choices to choose from, each with its pros and cons. Should we choose to go ahead with anything, we will pick one of them anyway. Albeit less the headache and the absence of sleep.
You can’t optimized life. You can choose different set of trade off which might seems better to the other choices, but actually only different. It is just choosing between one over the other which in the grand scheme of things wouldn’t really matter. Think of things or decisions that aggrevate you. You felt that you had choose the wrong boyfriend to marry. Yes that would hurt a lot. But take in the longer perspective, we would die anyway. In the end nothing is lost. At least not that much.
Our search for perfect life has little incentives to offer. The cons though — although invisibles at times — are staggering. Our health, our well-being and thousands of not quantifiable variables in our life has bear the diseases out of our stress. At this point we might be tempted to think again about everything and ended up deeper… or just go straight ahead and claim the prize of life which is life!
