Don’t allow your memory to override your experience.

Allowing your remembering self to take precedence over your experiencing self limits your happiness.

Instructions

  1. Do not allow your remembering self to take precedence over your experiencing self.
    For example, if you go on a seven-day vacation and the sixth day goes badly, you will remember the entire trip as a negative one. Fight this instinct, and remember the trip for what it really was: fun and relaxing.
  2. When something goes wrong, take a step back and look at the big picture.
    Recognize that your mind defaults to a cognitive illusion—don’t accept it.
