“We are goal seeking mechanisms. It is how we are made. Don’t fight it. Use it to your advantage”. I am reading a classic early days psych book called Psycho Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz. He was a plastic surgeon who made some great insights to human nature from the work he did in reconstructing people’s faces. The crux of the book is that we can create pretty much any reality from our habits of thinking and that we can get the best out of ourselves when we recognize our goal driven nature and use it to build engagement in a process and achieve fantastic things. It’s a good read. Check it out. It’s a seminal piece on self development and highly recommended.
