Vaughn Tan wants to help you learn how to think and act better in situations of not-knowing.
We’re culturally and socially conditioned to avoid not-knowing or pretend it doesn’t exist. This conditioning is a form of learned helplessness and it’s an impediment to being happy. Happiness results from being curious about the world around you, being free to take action, being effective in the actions that you take, and being content with what you achieve.
In this salon, we’ll talk about how and why thinking clearly about not-knowing can make us 1) more curious, 2) more free, 3) more effective, and 4) more content — and thus happier and more successful in an increasingly uncertain world.
This is the second salon in the series Thinking about Not-knowing.
