My project

You are the project

Your mind is the asset that must be worked on most and understood best. Is is the raw material to spend time on practicing and improving.

This year I will work on…




Quality over quantity.

This concept applies to many aspects of life, including my goal of being mindful, present, and patient.

I like to be alone. I don’t need to talk and it actually drains my energy. Being kind and present with others is hard work, but I want to improve.

When my life is ideal, I am…

High priority
Keep these up!

What I can do to achieve these goals:

  1. Zero-sum thinking perceives situations as zero-sum games, where one person’s gain would be another’s loss. Rozycka-Tran et al. (2015) defined zero-sum thinking as:

    A general belief system about the antagonistic nature of social relations, shared by people in a society or culture and based on the implicit assumption that a finite amount of goods exists in the world, in which one person’s winning makes others the losers, and vice versa … a relatively permanent and general conviction that social relations are like a zero-sum game. People who share this conviction believe that success, especially economic success, is possible only at the expense of other people’s failures.

    Zero-sum bias is a cognitive bias towards zero-sum thinking; it is people’s tendency to intuitively judge that a situation is zero-sum, even when this is not the case. This bias promotes zero-sum fallacies, false beliefs that situations are zero-sum. Such fallacies can cause other false judgements and poor decisions.
