December 2023 Lessons – Reality Is An Acquired Taste

Reality Is An Acquired Taste

Each month I keep a list of thoughts, ideas, opinions, and insights that I come across and find interesting. From this list I’ve selected some to share with you:

  • “Comparison is the thief of joy” - Franklin Roosevelt
  • Shorten your to-do list by asking yourself “What is the worst that will happen if this does not get done?” Eliminate all but the disasters. - Kevin Kelly
  • “Reality is an acquired taste.” - Matthew Perry’s Book
  • “We do not learn from experience...we learn from reflecting on experience.” ― John Dewey
  • “You can choose a life of ease and comfort, or you can you choose a life of service and adventure.” - Jeff Bezos
  • “The secret to doing good research is always to be a little underemployed. You waste years by not being able to waste hours.” — Amos Tversky

I appreciate you.


My thoughts are subject to change and I will get some things wrong. I promise to keep learning and strive to keep doing better. I'm by no means an expert on any topic I may write or make videos about so always do your own research as well. I try to keep an open mind. If I can teach you something and also learn something from you then I'm doing what I set out to do. Thanks for reading. These are just some thoughts.

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” - Maya Angelou
