From Farnam Street blog:
Let that sink in. We don’t stay there because we’re correct, but because it’s physically easier. It’s a form of laziness.
Don’t believe me? Spend a single day asking yourself this simple question: Do I know this for sure, or have I simply landed on a comfortable spot?
You’ll be surprised how many things you do and believe just because it’s easy. You might not even know how you landed there. Don’t feel bad about it — it’s as natural as breathing. You were wired that way at birth.
