A lot of people like videos, books, and seminars on self-help. But one of the issues with those products is Pavlovian response. That’s one of the 25 cognitive biases – our brain is hardwired to look for dopamine rushes. If you’re not careful, those Pavlovian responses will make you an insight junkie when it comes to self help. You’ll start looking for more and more insight every day without stopping to implement it.

Don’t be afraid to read the same books over and over. It might not give you the same dopamine rush as a new book but it will reinforce the ideas and help you implement instinctual change in yourself.
