The Psychology of Previous Investment
Greg Ellifritz

I was recently listening to a podcast where the host was interviewing noted author and speaker James Howard Kunstler.  Mr. Kunstler is well known in the fields of permaculture, architecture, and sustainable living.  He has written several excellent books, with The Long Emergency and World Made By Hand likely being of interest to many of my readers.

Kunstler was talking about the lack of long term sustainability in our resource demands and modern lifestyle.  He blamed much of the problem on a concept he calls “The Psychology of Previous Investment.”

He explains the concept as:

“as a species we are reluctant to abandon any path we’ve set down, once we’ve made the commitment to set down the path.”

Train like your life depends on it.
