Drift

I have the advantage of not even liking what I do. And yet taking a chance is still hard. Link

I think the most important thing I took away from all that time with my nose in happiness research and behavioral econ is that we overestimate the value of what we already have and so underestimate the upside of taking a chance, leaving something behind, and making a big change. Most of us end up where we are through a sort of drift. Sometimes that works out splendidly. And drift hasn’t not worked out for me. I really like what I do. But, alas, I don’t really love it.


Stuff I’m Reading part 2

I need more bookmarks. The book on top I’ve finished, and the one on the bottom I haven’t started yet. Everything else, I’m in the middle of.

Perhaps I need another hobby instead of bookmarks.
