Coincidence or Divine Plan?

Hi,

I met my wife for the first time in 2006. Four years later, both at the age of 26, we married. The date was 20/06. Six years later our son was born on 06/02. Two years later we bought a house on Street 62.

2 and 6 seem to be ruling my life. Coincidence or Divine Plan?

Neither.

It’s called Confirmation Bias. I’m looking at only data that is proving my theory and ignoring everything that doesn’t.

Life is full of Confirmation Biases, that make us feel that things are following a pattern that doesn’t exist. Humans are pattern seeking animals and this Cognitive Bias rules our lives and careers.

I’ve written a whole series of articles on Conginite Biases. Check them out if you want to learn more about them.

Waiting for 2026,
