MORE IDEAS FROM 5 Lessons on Being Wrong

The fact that failure will happen is not an excuse for expecting to fail.

...even if you fail. Realize that no single choice is destined to fail, but that occasional failure is the cost you have to pay if you want to be right.

Expect to win and play like it from the outset.

Break down topics that are too big to master into smaller tasks that can be mastered.

If you want to get better at making accurate first choices, then play in a smaller arena.

Procrastination: Why It Happens

Procrastination is when we avoid the tasks in our list, feeling the pressure to complete them and going through various emotions like blame, anger, frustration and anxiety. The reason we procrastinate is because we value the now and instinctively prefer to procure and enjoy our rewards sooner rather than later.

“Stay on the Bus”

"Stay on the bus. Stay on the f*cking bus. Because if you do, in time, you will begin to see a difference.”

The buses that move out of Helsinki stay on the same line, but only for a while—maybe a kilometer or two. Then they begin to separate, each number heading off to its own unique destination.

It’s the separation that makes all the difference.

And once you start to see that difference in your work from the work you so admirethat’s why you chose that platform after all—it’s time to look for your breakthrough. Suddenly your work starts to get noticed.
