  • Common Causes of Very Bad Decisions

“Being influenced by the actions of people who are playing a different game than you are.”


  • How To Practice Long-Term Thinking When You Can Barely See Past Tomorrow

“While the future is certain, you can still create it by what you choose to do or fail to do.”


  • David Foster Wallace On The Meaning Of Life (Audio)

“2005 commencement speech which was the basis for his book on the same subject.”


  • Survivorship Bias

“While optimism can actually be helpful, inflating our likelihood of success because we forget to include failures in our dataset will add unnecessary risk to an already complex decision-making process.”
