Ease and Self-preservation

We are designed for ease and self-preservation.

Let us explore each.

Humans, like water, take the path of least resistance. We make easy choices, at least most of us, and expect a stroke of luck to distinguish us. We prefer “low energy use” choices.

Put simply, most of us don’t want to die. To live, for now at least, we make self-first choices. All threats to self preservation are met with fight or flight – “high energy use” choices.

Both ease and self-preservation complement each other.

Ease helps us save energy for the periods of high energy choices and self-preservation triggers us to innovate for promotion of low energy choices.

The distinguishing factor between individuals, is their default energy use base.

Low energy use attracts threats.
High energy use attracts ease.
