Shane Parrish: Inertia

“A lot of things that work for you also work against you. Inertia is a great example. If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’re going to get the same results you’ve always gotten. Decades get wasted expecting different results from the same inputs.”

—Shane Parrish.


Shane Parrish: Intellectual hubris

“It’s intellectual hubris to think that with a few minutes of googling our opinions are on par with people who have spent their lives in a domain. And yet we’ve been taught that we are entitled to our own opinion and that it deserves equal weighting. Sure you hold your own opinion, but it doesn’t deserve equal weighting.”
