Wired has this amazing article about harnessing feedback loops to make yourself better. The concept of feedback loops is discussed in the article, but basically it involves a change in behavior based on information generated by a previous behavior which in turn generates more information, and so on and so on. Circular definition, I know. The article uses the example of new signs near school zones that show your speed next to the posted speed limit. I’ve seen a few of these crop up in town lately, and it’s particularly interesting to see the reasoning behind them, let alone learning about the positive impact they have.
