Going to the max

People enjoy going to the max…

From here. It seems intuitive when you read it…apparently setting a maximum limit on what someone can do of something sort of encourages them to attempt to reach that maximum.


Insight Into Us

Unless we have a reason for being active we choose to do nothing – an
evolutionary vestige that ensures we conserve energy.

From here. I am thinking of collecting observations like these about humans that can help “hack” our behaviors towards “betterment”. For example this observation could be used to design activities like exercise or eating in a manner that will encourage us to “good” behavior.

Will tag such observations as “hack-thought”.
