Perceive

We don’t see reality. We perceive it. The difference in seeing and perceiving is that latter is subjective.

Perceiving means filtering whatever you saw and molding it into a model that you want to see.

We can’t control our objective reality, but having a balanced mindset can help us perceive the world in a way that’s good for us.

Analysis

Whenever you analyse a situation remember that there’s always some gain and some loss. You can’t have only one, they come in packs of different proportions across different situations. Ask yourself: is this gain worth the loss it brings?
