“Pluralism matters because life is not worth living without new experiences - new people, new places, new challenges. But discipline matters too; we cannot simply treat life as a psychedelic trip through a series of novel sensations.”
Tim Harford, Adapt: Why Success Always Starts with Failure

“Accepting trial and error means accepting error. It means taking problems in our stride when a decision doesn't work out, whether through luck or misjudgment. And that is not something human brains seem to be able to do without a struggle.”
Tim Harford, Adapt: Why Success Always Starts with Failure

“The Most successful industry of the last forty years has been built on failure after failure after failure.”
Tim Harford, Adapt: Why Success Always Starts with Failure
