What I’m Reading – Week of Sept 10, 2018

Below are some of the most intriguing, thought-provoking and actionable performance-related content pieces I read and watched this week:


Goals are emotional because you’re anticipating a future where things are better than today, or avoiding a situation where they could be worse than today. The point of a goal is managing regret, and regret is an emotion. So any time you save for retirement, or your kids’ education, or imagine a world where you’re out of debt, you’re diving into a world filled with overconfidence in how you’ll feel when a goal is met, or potential disappointment when they aren’t.” – Morgan Housel


Scale brings a lot more of everything — the good and the bad. Scaling emotional resilience has been a learning experience.” – Adventur.es team


Young people have the illusion of choices. But if you want to be good, you have no choices.” – Nick Saban
