Positive experiences count for less than negative experiences…dang!

What an annoying fact. Positive experiences count for less than negative ones. 

It seems humans are wired up to focus on the negative while ignoring the positive. Such is the conclusion from one observation by Daniel Kahneman in his bestseller Thinking Fast and Slow

How irritating is that? But sadly it has the ring of truth and it sort of makes sense. To focus on danger and problems might keep us safe, while good things…well they dont need looking after. A recipe for unhappiness indeed!

So that means we have to do lots of positive things to weigh against the few negative things.

Lets get busy then.
