"Three decades of neuropsychology research have shown us numerous ways in which human judgment, like memory and hearing, is prone to systematic mistakes. The mind overestimates vivid dangers, falls into ruts, and manages multiple pieces of data poorly. It is swayed unduly by desire and emotion and even the time of day. It is affected by the order in which information is presented and how problems are framed. And if we doctors believed that, with all our training and experience, we escape such fallibilities, the notion was dashed when researchers put us under the microscope." 

-Atul Gawande

About time I mentioned it on my blog. 
Yeah really. I believe traditional goal setting might be bringing frustration and anxiety upon you and decreasing your quality of life. Here's why...

"We humans, facing limits of knowledge, and things we do not observe, the unseen and the unknown, resolve the tension by squeezing life and the world into crisp commoditized ideas, reductive categories, specific vocabularies, and prepackaged narratives, which, on the occasion has explosive consequences. Further, we seem unaware of this backward fitting, much like tailors who take great pride in delivering the perfectly fitting suit – but do so by surgically altering the limbs of their customers. For instance, few realize that we are changing the brains of schoolchildren though medication in order to make them adjust to the curriculum, rather than the reverse.”

Might do a follow up soon with some new perspectives and clarifications on this one. As soon as I'm done procrastinating.

What is enjoyment?

No matter who you ask, from surgeons to chess players to dancers, what keeps them motivated is the quality of experience they feel when they are involved in the activity. This optimal experience has been defined by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, professor and former chairman of the Department of Psychology at the University of Chicago, as FLOW. 

The FLOW experience is described in almost identical terms regardless of the activity that produced it. Athletes, artists, scientists, surgeons, writers and ordinary working people describe the most awarding experiences with very similar words. 

1. There are clear goals every step of the way. 

2. There is immediate feedback to one's actions.

3. There is a perfect balance between challenge and skills, balancing the fine line between frustration and boredom. 

4. Action and awareness are merged and we are fully focused in what we do.

5. Distractions are excluded from consciousness. 

6. There is no worry of failure, we are too involved to worry. 

7. Self-consciousness disappears. 

8. The sense of time becomes distorted. 

9. The activity becomes autotelic, that is enjoyable and rewarding per se. There is no reason from doing them except to feel the experience they provide. 

In many ways, the secret to a happy life is to learn to get flow from as many of the things we have to do as possible. If work and family life becomes autotelic, then there is nothing wasted in life, and everything we do is worth doing for its own sake.
