Algorithms to Live By
1 min read
spend the afternoon, you cant take it with you
ignore sunk costs
in the long run, optimism is the best prevention for regret
explore vs exploit
all human knowledge is uncertain, inexact, partial
it’s very hard to predict the future
what would you do if you could not fail?
if there is no money?
if you had infinite time?
if you weren’t afraid?
if all jobs paid the same?
you don’t have to do anything, if you face the consequences
hard problems demand imagining easier versions, not spinning wheels
take the impossible and make it costly
randomness as the heart of creativity
once you got somewhere happy, it would be stupid to shake it up further
cool off slowly
politely assert what you want
