Compensatory conviction

Zeigarnik effect

Getting-into time

Time it takes you to get back into something from where you left off

 

Idea Doubt

Doubt that is energizing because it causes you to want to test, experiment, and refine, to get it right, knowing the first batch will almost always be crappy

 

Vuja De
