What we’re teaching ourselves

I know I’ve said this before, but it’s worth repeating.

Anytime we learn but do nothing to act on that new knowledge, we’re teaching ourselves to ignore what we learn.

Anytime we hear but do nothing about it, we’re teaching ourselves to ignore what we hear.

Anytime we feel for someone but do nothing to care for them, we’re teaching ourselves to ignore them.

Anytime we procrastinate, we’re teaching ourselves to procrastinate.

We’re teaching ourselves every moment of every day. We’re conditioning ourselves to do what we’re doing.

We can’t escape how this works, but we can choose what we’re teaching ourselves.
