Take a big bite, or you will be stuck with the only thing that sticks: your lunch. I like to think I can do that with pasta, but I need to get my hands on some tomatoes that are ripe and delicious. These are the vegetables that are the only things left in my mouth.
For a while I was just doing my best to get my hands on a green tomato and eating it with the tomato on my hands. Then I had to go back to my apartment and leave it in the kitchen. My mind worked on tomatoes and I just managed to find a tomato that I was really liking and I would now have a tomato that I really like. Just because I like tomatoes doesn’t mean I like them. I just didn’t feel like I could eat them.
I think the problem is that we see people only as a series of actions, not a series of decisions. We also tend to feel that we know what we should or should not be doing, and so we make the wrong decisions in the moment. We end up making the wrong decisions for a very long time. And this is how our brains work.
It’s because we are on autopilot that we tend to make the wrong decisions. When we are thinking of a tomato as a tomato we are already making a bunch of decisions. Because we are already making decisions about the tomato, we can never truly “think of them as a tomato” because we would have to look at it every time we decide to eat it. We can never consider a tomato as something to be happy with because we are already making decisions about it.
There are more than one way to make a decision when there is more information to read. Most people don’t even realize what they’re doing is going on. There are a lot of people that think that there is a “right” way to make a decision. The reason most people don’t realize that is because there are a lot of them. They’re going on social media, reading, reading, writing, they’re going on a lot of different things.
People do make rational decisions at the margin. For example, you go to the grocery store and you buy a bunch of tomatoes. That is a rational decision, but if you know the weather, you might make a decision to buy some peppers and some onions. You might also see some peppers on the shelf, but you might buy a lot of onions if you know the weather is going to be great.
How can you make rational decisions at the margin? We can help you out. You might be surprised, but you might not be surprised at all by a particular decision. You might just get angry.
We might not know the exact weather, but we can tell you that it is likely to be cold. That information is in the news all the time, and it’s often ignored. Because when we hear about hurricanes, we just assume that it’s going to be a hot summer vacation. But it isn’t. It’s true that hurricanes can be more deadly than other weather events, but that doesn’t mean they’re always an optimal time to go to the grocery store.
The same goes for the weather. We all have to make rational decisions at the margin, but when we do, it doesn’t have to be at the margins. There are plenty of times when the weather is bad, but if you ignore it for two hours, it will calm down. And if you don’t care about the weather, then you’re a hypocrite. Because if you really are a hypocrite, then you are doing it on purpose.
