Truth, Perception

Truth, Perception

Our perception of what is true is informed (and limited by) our point of view.

The persistent irony in this concept is that we don't know what we don't know (and never will).

Paradoxically, acknowledging the fact we can't know everything puts us in a much more useful position for revealing our blindspots. 

Learning is like climbing an infinite ladder.

We're conditioned to think of a single percentage point as an almost non-consequential gain. In conventional wisdom investing, 1% would be laughed at.

How long it takes to learn something is a better proxy for how valuable something is than how long it takes to do something.

It's comforting to think that hitting a certain target or achieving a definable milestone will bring us lasting comfort.

If you make $10,000 or $1,000,000 and spend 100% of it, the outcome is the same.

An abundance of connectivity means you’re only ever a second away from another opinion.

Expecting to excel in anything without consistent practice is the easiest way to lose.
