finishing “Useful Not True

I’m fascinated with this combination of skepticism, pragmatism, and cognitive behavioral therapy. So fascinated that this is my next book — a dive into this subject so I can learn what others have thought around this and think deeper about it myself.

  1. Most of what people say is not necessarily true.
  2. Most of what you think is not necessarily true.
  3. Force yourself to find better perspectives.
  4. Adopt one that works for you for now.

I’ve been learning and digesting these ideas for a year, so it’s time to finish the book now.

Sorry, that’s it right now. I’m really focused on finishing.
