Uncertainty is certainly part of life.
The trap is set when we squirm under that uncertainty.
When we can't sit with the discomfort
When the orientation is towards action and an avoidance of discomfort.
The trap is sprung when we rush for resolution.
When we strive for certainty.
When we jump quickly and calcify our thinking.
It's hard to escape the trap because we feel comfort.
The cognitive ease of having decided feels good.
But action is good? Right?
Biased towards action is a positive trait.
We made the wrong prediction.
We are less likely to hear new information and update our thinking.
We push others and their ideas away.
Certainly we should be more certain about the importance of uncertainty.
