What am I looking at? 👀 ⠀ You are looking at a system for decision making that has been developed by Yancey Strickler- the co-founder of Kickstarter. ⠀ He calls this a “bento” and insists that when we make decisions, we must consider each box before making a choice. He says this will guide us towards “self coherence” and fulfilment. ⠀ We often get stuck in the first box on the bottom left- thinking about ourselves right now and the immediate gratification that can result from bad choices. To make decisions that are good for ourselves across time and good for our society, we have to expand the consideration we have of ourselves as individuals stuck in time. ⠀ If we expand our self interest, we realise we are not just individuals, we are deeply connected to the social world. Our decisions impact the people around us and a good decision must consider this. Furthermore, the decisions you make now also impact your future. Therefore, we can’t make decisions without considering our relationship to time. ⠀ Making decisions in this way is what will lead us all to a happier life and a better society. This concept of “bentoism” is yet another philosophy that shows us that making decisions that are good for you and good for others simultaneously, is the way to go. ⠀ This will make you feel whole and lift us all up ⚡️
