Paying attention to details of human behavior


Many people have told me about my exceptional ability to read human behavior. I do think that it is true. At the same time, I often notice myself getting swallowed by biases and away from the truth. We live in a world that makes it difficult to connect with our inner voice and, at the same time, profoundly listen to what others are and aren't saying to you. Sometimes the truth is evident; you are the only one who doesn't see it.

Often we will face conflicts in which the truth is told or act upon us, but we might choose to look the other way. I find this even more prevalent when people provide you with optionality, but you want them to hit you with passion and determined action. Love can be misinterpreted by admiration. Long-term alignment can deviate for short-term pleasure.

At large, I dare you to listen profoundly to signs in front of you.

Instead of looking for constant input, look for answers.

Give yourself time to mature hints and insights don't rush towards decisions.

At the same time, be sincere to yourself — If something you feel is the truth that is being told explicitly to you, it probably is.

More potent than having instincts is following through when they talk to you.

Human nature is clear and explicit, and, when you learn how to read it, it makes everything more clear.

Shine a light on what needs clarity immediately. Listen.
