Ep 127: Are you planning, predicting or playwriting?

In this episode, Richard and Pilar take a look at the different kinds of future-oriented thinking we can do.

As not all of it is helpful, it’s useful to distinguish between our planning, our predicting and our ‘playwriting’. And once we notice the difference, we can practice an awareness of the present moment and the skills of defusion to minimise their intrusive nature.
