Your feedback loops only operate properly when they have information to work with, so your natural tendency to avoid bad news can gum up the works. Fortunately, you don't need to go far to find what you need to keep things moving.
Welcome to the Right Life Project.
We strive to support you in building and maintaining the most meaningful, fulfilling, and healthy life possible. The kind of life that comes from letting go of habits of thought or behavior that have held you in place and cultivating others that promote feelings of freedom and wellbeing. One in which your daily life, whether at home, work, or play, is aligned with who you are at your core—allowing you to thrive, not just survive.
Whether you're just here for interesting reading, or there are some areas of your life that you’d like to work on, or you’d like to make radical changes and don’t know where to begin, we hope you’ll find something that speaks to you.
You may not compete for Olympic medals, but you've probably experienced disaster striking just when things are going great. It can wreak havoc on the sense of identity you derive from your life story and fill you with ambivalence and self-doubt. It happened a few days ago to skier Hannah Kearney. But there are things you can do while you're pursuing your goals, and after you experience a setback, that can help you move onward and upward with renewed insight. Here we take a close look at a high-profile example and explore what you can apply to your life.
How you feel while pursuing your goals involves more than just how you're moving toward or away from them: there's a vertical dimension, too. Exploring the third dimension of your goals allows you to fine-tune your assessment of what matters to you, and maybe even discover motivations you aren't aware of.
Trying to feel better emotionally can be frustrating sometimes because of the skewed conceptions of emotional health that are propagated in popular culture: unhappy moments are weeds in the garden, and so long as any remain, you have more pulling to do. But when you cast your negative emotions as an antagonist, you become blind to their merits and can keep yourself from true wellbeing.
