Self-talk is an internal dialogue that’s driven by the subconscious mind.

Career Planning

If your career choice is based on “Shoulds” - “I should be in Wallstreet to impress my relatives”; “I should become a sales manager to please my parents”. Here we have Spotlight Bias. If you choose to be a lawyer because your father and grandfather are both lawyers and if it’s good enough for them it’s good enough for you, this is a classic case of Authority bias.

Bandwagon effect bias. If your career choice is based on… Continue reading Career Planning

Mental Wellness

Both life and death offer us a choice. The experience of death lasts a short time and has less variety, but the adventure of living is longer, and offers us more options.
