Seth Godin once said, ‘If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.’

With all due respect to Mr. Godin, there’s more than one way to get out of a hole. Not only can you stop digging, but you can also climb up that ladder or throw that rope or ask for help. If we can learn anything from winter and snow removal, it’s that there are multiple ways to clear a path out of any hole—so keep digging until you’ve found your way out. Here are a few ways to find your own method for getting out.

It’s no surprise then that most people aren’t very good at making decisions.

When you think about it, making a decision is a very unnatural thing to do. Our brains are wired to react instinctively to stimuli in hopes that we’ll survive long enough to reproduce. The fight or flight response comes out naturally when faced with danger because—after all—you can’t fight what you don’t know is coming at you. Trying to make a decision doesn’t come naturally for us and sometimes we suffer for it. Making decisions is stressful because it requires us to put ourselves in situations where negative outcomes are possible.: That’s why we get so worked up over small, inconsequential choices like what movie to watch or whether or not we should wear pants today; they actually affect our future happiness!

Most of us are lucky if we can manage to make just one good decision per day.

Our philosophy at Philosockphy is that good decisions can be made over and over again, meaning that a single good decision doesn’t have to be a one-time deal. That's why we're happy to offer you 20% off just about any pair of socks—the sharpest in our collection, I might add—if you decide right now to join up for our monthly philosophy-of-socks subscription. One month costs just $24, but more importantly it'll give you access to 20% off on all your sock purchases each and every month from there on out. Oh yeah, and we'll also throw in free shipping both ways on your first order. It's nice being nice when it makes people smile.

We know what the best choices are — we know them intuitively and rationally — but we still don’t do them.

We know that eating less salt and saturated fat is good for us, but we still eat more of it than is healthy. We know that sitting in traffic for hours isn’t good for us, but we still spend a majority of our time doing it. We know that using social media mindlessly can lead to depressive thoughts, but we still spend most of our free time staring at Instagram. But why do we choose not to do things that will make us happier in both short- and long-term? In short: because making choices doesn’t actually feel like choice. Instead, when faced with choices, each one feels like a burden that’s weighing on your shoulders — even if you have better options available.

And this isn’t because we lack information; it’s because we lack clarity on how to process that information into actionable steps.

Great! You know what you should do. But do you have a methodology for executing that plan? If not, you’re just as likely to fail as someone without a plan—even more so because you’ll have no idea why it failed. To start on the right track with your next project, follow these steps

This might seem like something only nerds care about, but when applied to wearing socks — or making any choice in life — it becomes incredibly relevant. And important...

Plato’s Allegory of The Cave tells a story about a group of people chained inside a cave all their lives, facing a blank wall. Behind them is a fire and between them and the fire is a walkway on which images are projected; shadows cast by objects held up by people walking in front of it. What’s more important: seeing how things really are or your perspective on how they are? Plato would argue that our perception defines reality — not just for us but for everyone — so therefore it is vital to understand how we perceive life.
