It will take me a while to process Plain and Simple. (Which I learned about from the bibliography of the XP book, for what that’s worth.) Some facets:

  • There can be well thought-out, stable systems of behavior that are strong enough to exist for quite some time next to American society without being absorbed.
  • It’s not necessarily a good idea to spend time thinking about whether you enjoy what you’re doing at a given moment, or whether it’s drudgery.
  • If your brain is trying to tell you something, listen.
  • Be careful of following a path because it’s what your past experiences and environment have set you up to do.
  • Having good aspects in one area does not mean having good aspects in all areas.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m actually quite happy with the way my life is turning out. But it is good to be reminded of these things.
