101 Essays That Will Change the Way You Think by Brianna Wiest

101 Essays That Will Change The Way You Think” by Brianna Wiest by its catchy title and good reviews. There were indeed 101 Essays and some of them truly thought provoking that make the book worth purchasing and reading.
All of the essays were short and some of them were excellent and “spot-on”. Other essays seemed as if they were more appropriate for a self-help therapy session book that may or may not apply to the reader. Some of the essays were fascinating and some were a struggle to finish reading. One of the 101 essays is entitled: “101 Essays That Will Change The Way You Think”, that is, the exact same title as the book, which rather begs the question of what is added by the other 100 essays.
Sometimes the book provided sources used to influence the author’s essays. Sometimes scholarly references were in footnotes. There were several features of the book, as published in Kindle format, that left this reviewer disappointed. In terms of format, when highlighting sections to be excerpted (as allowed by the publisher), the numbers were somehow embedded in the format and were NOT highlighted for excerption.
As an example of the author’s substance and style Wiest writes: “In his book Sapiens… Harari explains that at one point, there were more than just Homo sapiens roaming the Earth… There’s a reason Homo sapiens still exist today and the others didn’t continue to evolve: a prefrontal cortex,.. was because of language and thought that… we could create a world within our minds, and ultimately, it is because of language and thought that we have evolved into the society we have today…”
Wiest writes: “Every generation has a “monoculture” of sorts, a governing pattern or system of beliefs that people unconsciously accept as “truth.”… The objectivity required to see the effects of present monoculture is very difficult to develop. Once you have so deeply accepted an idea as “truth” it doesn’t register as “cultural” or “subjective” anymore… The fundamentals of any given monoculture tend to surround what we should be living for… You believe that creating your best life is a matter of deciding what you want and then going after it, but in reality, you are psychologically incapable of being able to predict what will make you happy… You extrapolate the present moment because you believe that success is somewhere you “arrive,” so you are constantly trying to take a snapshot of your life and see if you can be happy yet… You convince yourself that any given moment is representative of your life as a whole. Because we’re wired to believe that success is somewhere we get to—when goals are accomplished and things are completed… Accomplishing goals is not success. How much you expand in the process is…. You think “problems” are roadblocks to achieving what you want, when in reality they are pathways… Simply, running into a “problem” forces you to take action to resolve it.”
Wiest writes: “The Psychology of Daily Routine… what we don’t realize is that having a routine doesn’t mean you sit in the same office every day for the same number of hours. Your routine could be traveling to a different country every month… In short, routine is important because habitualness creates mood, and mood creates the “nurture” aspect of your personality, not to mention that letting yourself be jerked around by impulsiveness… routine is so important (and happy people tend to follow them more)… Your habits create your mood, and your mood is a filter through which you experience your life… Happiness is not how many things you do, but how well you do them. More is not better… As children, routine gives us a feeling of safety. As adults, it gives us a feeling of purpose.”
