The Top 10 Mistakes Humans Make — And a Response

We all make mistakes sometimes… (Source: Freshbooks)

A Lack of Self Control

1. The desire to give in to our baser instincts.

A Lack of Epistemic Humility

5. The tendency to rationalize poor decisions.

A Need to Shift Our Thinking Process.

8. Gullibility to false narratives and misinformation.

A Final Note

Ultimately, even if I provide these fixes to common mistakes, I do not doubt that humans will mess up anyway. We are imperfect and flawed beings. However, we are also beings that try to do our best to improve ourselves and find our place in this world. The first step to implementing some of the fixes listed in this journal is to admit that humans are imperfect, and we make mistakes. Only then, can we start to travel the arduous journey of self-improvement.
