Sunday Quote : Kathryn Schulz

Like most fears, our fear of wrongness is half real, half spectral. It’s not exactly true there is nothing to fear but fear itself, since wrongness really can have clifflike consequences for our lives. But it is true that the fear of wrongness does nothing but hurt us. It makes it harder to avoid errors (…) and harder to forgive ourselves and others for making them. For everyone involved, then, looking closely at the experience of wrongness is far better than refusing to look at all.

This is a glorious book about the way we are making decisions and how afraid and unrealistic we are with the idea of making mistakes. This was offered by Octo Technology during the USI 2012 Conference [FR] where Kathryn Schulz made a great keynote. so thanks to them for contributing to Les Citations du Dimanche.
