Learning About Choices

Jory is living without a net, and thankfully she's sharing the experience with others. This week she asked a few fantastic questions about choices:
"What I meant was, living on-purpose is an acquired skill. In grade school, we’re taught Anatomy, but not Autonomy. The latter is a subject we experience later in life, when we feel the weight of bad choices pressing down on us and can’t quite make out where the pain is coming from. We’re taught to make cheaper choices, rational choices, quantifiably advantageous choices, hormonally driven choices, but where are we taught to make meaningful choices?"
