Idea to test

Since it appears, from research (I’m still looking for examples to link to – for right now I’m just making a note for myself) that most organisms, from the simplest bacteria to complex creatures like, say, human beings, modify their behavior more easily when rewarded for positive actions, rather than being punished for negative actions, my goal for myself is to begin training myself to ignore my “bad” actions, to the point of distracting myself and avoiding thinking or dwelling on them… while simultaneously creating a reward system for positive actions.

Harder than it might sound. Still seems worthwhile, though.
