The Lens of Opportunity
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“How can I get rid of the impulse to check for likes?“
“Look at it through the lens [<link; short read] of Opportunity.
Opportunity To Learn (OTL)
– Why do you want to check for likes?
– What can you learn about yourself?
Opportunity To Practice/Play (OTP)
– Why don’t you want to check for likes?
– What can you practice?“
“I can practice Letting Go.
Letting go of desires.
Letting go of expectations.
I can practice Discipline (Self-Mastery).“
“Don’t forget the Opportunity To Celebrate (OTC).
Artfully replace the dopamine hit of checking for likes with the dopamine hit of not checking for likes. (Inversion)“
