In this episode, Jordan Peterson puts the significance of our well-being above all else. In other words, you’re empowered with a choice to refuse to be someone who bows down absolutely to any kind of system that causes you misery and resentment.
In the context against the backdrop of bureaucracy, Jordan explains that you should object or refuse at the outset, especially when people ask you to do anything that will demotivate you and make you miserable in the long run. Like Viktor Frankl once said, “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” In the same way, Jordan underscores our capacity to choose wisely, especially those that concern our peace, well-being, and happiness.
