The genius and risk of human shortcuts

Disney Speaker with Mary Poppins
Much of life is based on fairy tale imprinting.


Heuristics, defined here, may be getting in our way.

Or, they may be what leads to our breakthrough.

Alas, life is tough.

Much of our life is based on fairy tale imprinting.

Our brain compensates by accepting prevailing thoughts or concepts that may no longer be true – and may have never been true.

Heuristics are human shortcuts that allow busy, distracted humans to quickly process things and reach conclusions.

Or maybe we just make it tough because we aren’t willing to buck the heuristics.

Buck the heuristics. Double entendre intended.
