Replacing Guilt

I finished reading Nate Soares's Replacing Guilt series. It's highly recommended reading if you periodically find yourself guilty over what you didn't do or failed to achieve. Roughly, it's about excising guilt as an ineffective motivator, and about installing a strong intrinsic motivation mechanism in its stead.

It's well worth reading in full, there are a lot of articles, but all of them are relatively short and to the point. For myself, I extracted the following list of insights and directives, in order to remember to apply the lessons in my life. It's about what resonated with me, so your own take-away might be quite different. Read the whole thing!

Some of the terminology used below might not make sense if you didn't read the articles, but most of it is fairly general.
