Undoing the Art of Self-Sabotage, or, ‘Stop Doing that S***!’

“The point of self-sabotage is to keep you living in a very familiar cycle of life… This means this life you find yourself stuck in is the one you know best so you’ll stick to it at a subconscious level,”


By Jason Middleton

Alexander Pope dropped An Essay on Criticism back in 1711, and in that essay a quote for the ages: To err is human, to forgive divine. All people commit sins and make mistakes.

And, I’d argue, that refers to self-sabotage, choices humans make over and over in a cycle of limiting potential and fomenting crises.

So we asked Gary John Bishop to join us. He’s the author of the new book “Stop Doing that S***— a real world approach to reducing negative behavior and “waking the heck up”.

His prior book, a New York Times bestseller, is titled “Unf*** Yourself”.

It’s a little off our usual script, but Gary’s a great speaker and his approach can be helpful. We also veer into the novel and film Trainspotting toward the end. And he finds a few cautionary tales that translate beyond Scottish drug culture and relates to some of today’s drug troubles.

 

Have great weeks, everybody.
