Let's talk about how we spend our time throughout our life. At least through all our adult life.
To start, let's imagine the human being as someone who wants to get something important at the end of his life. Some following a purpose.
Now let's imagine the society as the place where every human being tries to accomplish that purpose.
Have you got it?
Ok. Now let's imagine that every human being spends his entire life working towards the completion of that purpose.
Yes, I know. This model does not resemble real life. In real life we cannot spend all of our time trying to accomplish our inner purpose. We have other things to do. We have to pay bills, fix things, solve all kinds of problems...
In the Deviation model, every distraction of the work a human being must do in order to get his inner objective is called a deviation. It derives its name from the image of a route to a specific destination.
How does it work?
Let`s retake our imagination exercise by imagining that our life is like a trip to a desired destination. Let's think of it as an Uber trip where you can use the App to watch the entire route. Now let's imagine that once the trip starts, the driver asks you to let him change the original route to go to a friend`s home to pick something. As you think that you have plenty of time, you agree to that. Then, the driver asks you to change the route again. This time he wants to buy some coffee. You agree again. Then...
Do you get it?
We can use the Uber trip analogy as a model of our adult life. In this analogy, the original destination represents our inner purpose, the route shown is our working plan to get that objective and all the detours, the moments in which we forget our original plan to do something else.
What are the main source of deviations in real life? Normally our job.
Every time we sign a contract with a company, we are selling our time. We agree deviating ourselves from our ideal route to go around doing things that
