This or that

I often find myself thinking this or that. Writing in English to learn a language, or writing in Swedish, using Apple or Google, reading physical books or audiobooks...

I'm not sure why. Maybe it's an identity thing, or a way of narrowing down the options available. Maybe it's a bit of both.

Either way, it's a bad strategy. Not only do the things around us change in ways beyond our control, but we also change as people. What was right for us today might not be right for us tomorrow.

Fortunately, we all carry a natural guide of intelligence within us - far beyond anything any AI could ever come up with. We "just" need to listen...easier said than done, but practice makes perfect.
