What Are You Telling Yourself?

David Allen, in the workshop Getting Things Done Fast says . . .

“Somebody estimated 50,000 images a day you talk to yourself . . . The typical adult does 77% negative self talk. Which makes a lot sense because if you grew up in a healthy American home, guess how much of your feedback was negative and critical? 80% . . . in the healthiness of environments. So it’s not surprising that we internalize about the same ratio.”
