A common metaphor for human goals is a guided missile.
A missile that is programmed toward it’s target, and it is constantly adjusting.
Because of wind, temperature, etc.
The idea is that every millisecond the missile is measuring it’s trajectory and continually updating how it “steers” itself.
How does this translate to human behavior, or goals?
One way is how we learn things.
Think of a little kid learning to walk.
His or her objective is to walk around on two legs, like all the other people.
They try and fail.
Each time they fail, they get valuable feedback.
More memory on how to balance.
What works, and what doesn’t.
Since they are similarly programmed to keep at it (and enjoy the process) eventually they master the process of “walking” and it becomes a totally unconscious process.
Of course, when we get older, we tend to lose this ability.
They say we are all geniuses when we are born, but we are “de-geniused” by the time we get out of school.
One way to look at the educational system is a “de-genusing” system.
(Interestingly, one trait of Einstein as a college student is he NEVER went to class…)
What if there were a way to recalibrate our natural learner?
To reawaken our inner guidance system so we could learn ANY skill, just as easily and enjoyable as we learned to walk?
How could this be possible?
We’ve only had the internet for a few decades.
TV for about 70 years.
Electricity only for a couple hundred.
In the realm of human instincts, that’s WAY too fast for our instincts to keep up.
And guess what?
That natural guidance system is based on our instincts.
NOT our conscious brains.
But we can USE our conscious brains to RE-CALIBRATE those instincts.
So our “natural guidance system” is back “on line.”
So we can learn ANYTHING as easily as learning to walk.
Even financial skills.
