How You Do Life

“Sometimes you have to change how you do life.”
– Alexis Eader


The simple truth is that we are all prisoners of a many-millions-of-years-old limbic system, the sole job of which is to ensure our survival.

Its primary strategy for achieving this is to convince us to stick with what we know. And doing that is easy because the known is so much more comfortable than the unknown.

So, once in a while, when we are at our best, and if we really want to change, we have to decide that we are bigger and stronger than our cerebral inheritance and do something about it.

We have to act against our deep and ancient longing to stick with what we know and make a change anyway.

It’s what separates us from our history. It’s what makes us who we are.
