  • Stop Preparing For The Last Disaster

“The same disasters tend not to happen twice in a row. A more effective approach is simply to prepare to be surprised by life, instead of expecting the past to repeat itself.”


  • A Body Of Work

“It exists inside you … and has existed from the moment you were born, and possibly even before that.”


  • Why Do People Avoid Facts That Could Help Them?

“Deliberate ignorance is a widespread preference not only in relation to painful news and events, such as death and divorce, but also pleasurable ones, such as birth. Research shows that people enjoy the suspense.”


  • On Luck Relative to Hard Work

“Absolute success is luck. Relative success is hard work.”
