Avoiding Bias in Decision Making

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 13, 2020 Mind

Have you ever thought about the fact that you decide at every moment of your life? The outlook of your life is nothing but a merge of small and big decisions made by you or by others for you. Everything you do is based on an internal decision-making process that compels you to choose one over the other. From a small decision like picking up a meal for your lunch to every large decision like confirming a business deal worth millions, your now and then depends on your preferences while making a decision. But it is not necessary that everything goes according to the plan and what you have decided is not the ultimate way out of the scenario. Throughout your journey you come across many unfortunate situations, you may need to pick either this or that, you may be under pressure for doing what’s not the right thing to...

Learning From Mistakes

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 12, 2020 Life

Mistakes are an essential part of an individual’s life. We see ourselves in so many different and difficult situations in our lives, and we think to ourselves, what made us go through this phase. We tend to accuse ourselves of our failures and not learn from them. Existence in this world with mistakes is inevitable, so, instead of worrying and taking stress over our failures, we should rectify our mistakes into lessons for lifetime achievements. Too often, we see ourselves in a situation where we say something, but people take different meanings for that, we try so hard to get successful in a project or task, but we still end up getting last. We see people take our efforts and love for granted, also judge us for our choices and decisions. All these things make us anxious and challenge our mental health, so the question should be; what should we...

Encourage Courage Brave Children

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 11, 2020 Life

What comes to your mind when you hear about children who are brave and courageous? You must think that they come from a strong family background, but they are not only coming from a healthy family. Also, they are taught to be brave and resilient. From the day they are born, they are trained to be sleep alone in their rooms. This thing, which sounds so essential, is the crucial step towards teaching your child to be independent. You must have seen some kids, who stand against being treated wrong, say no when they are not feeling like doing something a person asks them to do, they are not afraid of roller-coasters or roaming around alone in a place their parents left them to be. All this is because they are taught to be bold from a very young age. We see so many children in television working as actors....

Analysis Paralysis- Reasons Why Making Decisions Can Be Hard, and How Indecisiveness Can Impact You

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 11, 2020 Mind

In an age where almost everybody has unlimited access to the infinite well of quality information known as the internet, making decisions should be relatively easier than before. But it is not. It’s even much harder, if anything, nowadays. Just think about it. A swift Google search will net you hundreds or even thousands of results of any imaginable subject. It’s like opening a can of worms. You end spending a lot of time down an internet rabbit hole but leave the sites feeling more disoriented than ever. Rather than enabling you to make better decisions, limitless access to information frequently results in substantial fear of making the wrong choices. So, you end up trapped in an apparently inescapable Instead of allowing us to make better decisions, our virtually unlimited access to information often results in greater fear of making the wrong choice. So, we end up trapped in a...

Why you are bored. A young girl sits at a table bored to tears. Studio portrait.

Are you bored? Have you been sitting at a corner all day, staring at the ceiling, wishing there is more colors and vibes you could add to your life having explored all available options and adventure? Alternatively, you are trapped or withdrawn; wondering if that is also one of the inevitable conditions in life, which just happen to be happening to you now? Whatever your situation is, one thing is clear and certain; it is the fact that you are bored! Isn’t it surprising that some people still get bored despite the cheese and geese the world has to offer; the music, arts, fashion and never-ending entertainment? Isn’t it incredible that the presence of the social media and the blessing of friends and loved ones do not suffice in preventing one from falling into a state of boredom? The reality remains unaltered as people still find themselves at that spot,...

What are Emotions?

Darryl Bachmeier Jun 10, 2020 Emotions
What are emotions? Happy, sad, angry, worried faces.

A Unique Configuration As humans we have been uniquely configured to exhibit behavioural patterns which reflect how we feel. The expression we give to life and how we see it is often determined by these feelings – that is, those happy moments when we feel ecstatic or those sad times when we feel as if our world is crumbling. In fact, our reactions to stimulus generated from our internal environment – our minds and our thoughts; and our external environment (people and situations around us); even, the hobbies and activities we choose to engage in, ride on the wings of these subjective inclinations – emotions,. In a nutshell, how we feel, act, react; what we perceive and the inferences we draw are products of our emotional state. What is emotion? The Merriam Webster dictionary defines emotion as a strong feeling deriving from one’s circumstances, mood, or relationships with others. Don...
