The Thinking Lab - Motivations: Principles and Practice, Session 2 - for Members

Topic: Motivations: Principles and Practice, Session 2
The Reactive Subconscious
I have had several major insights this summer on topics ranging from what is a valid purpose, how you activate self-esteem, what it means to embrace reality, and how you manufacture urgency. I am organizing these into a new mini-course, which will take at least two longer sessions in the Thinking Lab with plenty of time for questions.
I see this as putting together all of the theory of motivation I've been developing with the tools available in the Thinking Lab. Expect formal presentations rather than in-class exercises. But as usual, there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and see how the ideas apply to your life.
In Session 1, I shared the Self-Direction Method. In Session 2, I will explain my theory of the "reactive subconscious." You will see how understanding the interaction between the conscious mind and the automatic functions of the subconscious helps you apply the method to manage your motivation.
