How do people abolish?

Indulge in "easy to get a high sense of accomplishment": intentionally or unintentionally seek a home remedy that can get a big "return" with little effort, even if the return is virtual. This kind of behavior will raise one's "excitement threshold", making it less and less easy for people to have a sense of accomplishment, and thus rely more and more on the virtual sense of accomplishment, and fall into a vicious circle. Mild symptoms: addicted to games (accelerating the passage of time in the virtual world, so that "success" comes faster), stallion novels (the adulterer can easily get what they want); severe symptoms or even illegal: gambling ( Easy access to "money"), drug use (easy to get the feeling of "coolness"), etc.

Only receive information sources with "low information density": only willing to receive information with low information density (such as videos and pictures that do not require too much brainstorming, and shallow entertainment, gossip, sports news, etc.), but are not willing to receive high information density , Information that can only be absorbed after thinking (such as courses, knowledge frameworks, analysis reports, etc.). Since most of the information that is truly valuable and allows people to make progress needs to be thought and digested, if this part of the content is completely isolated, the possibility of progress will basically be isolated.

Used to paralyze oneself with "dislocation sense of accomplishment": There are two types: ① Get used to comparing what you are good at with what others are not good at, and always get the illusion of being "better than others" (such as: better academic performance with athletes, and learning Babe sports); ② I am used to taking other people’s time to do thing A to do thing B, to pretend that I do a good job in thing B (for example: "show off" that I do more work than others on holidays, but also Only on holidays).

Over-reliance on the "existing feasible path": At work, after getting used to the process of one thing, I never think about how to improve it. I just repeat it mechanically and then deceive myself to be very fulfilling. Without improvement, there is no awareness of removing the dross, so there are more and more things that need to be repeated, and the time consumption is getting longer and longer. In the end, it seems that a lot of things have been done every day, but in fact, not only is there no improvement at all, but it is also squeezed. Space for progress.

Close the channel of "reinforcement learning": in learning or receiving information, only willing to perform the simplest first step, but unwilling to perform the next more complex consolidation and application process, only listening but not speaking, only not writing, If I only learn but don't practice, I'm paralyzed by saying that I've learned a lot. In fact, this kind of "shallow" learning is very quickly forgotten, and sometimes it's better not to learn.
