Your rabbi equips you with an invaluable tool: Your spouse asks you to stop doing something. Your boss at work asks you to start doing something. You kid asks you why you’re doing something. Wouldn’t it be great to come back with the right answer every time? The answer that, a day later you still admire rather than the answer you think of a day later and wish you’d given. How do you react wisely off the cuff? By arming yourself with the right basic beliefs. But when you start off with a wrong basic belief you end up making bad intuitive decisions in all the many daily circumstance. 

For example, let's imagine someone saying: The most important thing in my life is money. Or, the most important thing in my life is my body’s appearance. Or, the most important thing in my life is gaining knowledge. If you truly believe any of these 3 false ideas, and you can believe only one of them anyway since “most important” is singular, you are reducing the quality of your life. Of course each is important in its proper place in the matrix of your life’s values, but most important? Absolutely not. Why science cannot be trusted for all decisions. How a misunderstanding of Einstein and Darwin helped destroy American public education. Why there really is hope for the future.
