Few of us take the time to consider. We act according to data acquired by viewing the world from a single perspective: our own. As a result, we don’t always think to ask certain questions that, when answered, may benefit us greatly. We don’t do important things because we never think them worth doing. We don’t assess unfamiliar facets of life, even though such scrutiny might change everything about how we live.
A well-curated collection of perspectives is one of the most valuable assets a person can possess, and the ability to filter those perspectives – to figure out which of them has value for us as individuals, and which are not relevant to our unique beliefs and goals – is vital.
Considerations is about asking questions, attaining new perspectives, figuring out what you believe, and determining how these beliefs can help guide your actions. The book is formatted as a series of over 50 short essays which are intended to spark ideas, questions, and thoughtfulness in those who read them.
