The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
“The Black Swan asymmetry allows you to be confident about what is wrong, not about what you believe is right.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
“I don’t run for trains.” Snub your destiny. I have taught myself to resist running to keep on schedule. This may seem a very small piece of advice, but it registered. In refusing to run to catch trains, I have felt the true value of elegance and aesthetics in behavior, a sense of being in control of my time, my schedule, and my life. Missing a train is only painful if you run after it! Likewise, not matching the idea of success others expect from you is only painful if that’s what you are seeking. You stand above the rat race and the pecking order, not outside of it, if you do so by choice.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
