The paradox between risk and reward

We naturally fear loss more than we desire a potential gain. That fear of change keeps us where we are. That is also why most people stay in the same job or industry until they get fired or retire.

The paradox is that most people assume staying in the same place will be less risky. In reality, the opposite is true. The longer you stay in the same place, the more you're at risk of a loss. Unless we get comfortable with change, we can't choose a life that makes us happy.

How to create more career options

What you do for a career matters. How many of your personal problems are related to your work? How often does the stress of work affect your mood at home? Since work takes up most of our time, having more career options and happiness in your career automatically makes you a better person.

To have a good career, we need to prioritize learning over short-term goals like money. The more universal skills we have, the more opportunities we have.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
