Luck Still Doesn't Exist, and Acceleration

"Is Exponential Growth Possible?" got a few really good comments. Riley Harrison left a really good comment and questions -

Hello Sebastian,

A great blog. One of the realizations that helped me was comprehending that if an insight or epiphany wasn’t actionable (didn’t lead to action) it wasn’t of much value (other than recreational). I have thought way too many deep thoughts, read too many self-empowerment books searching for the non-existent silver bullet (insight) that would allow me to bypass hard work, accumulation of small victories and risk taking.

The traditional barriers/obstacles (time, money, energy, risk taking etc) are to me somewhat secondary to just plain old inertia. But being at the right place at the right time – is that serendipitous luck or something else. You do have to factor into the equation that you are shooting at a moving target (circumstances change and you change) – times stands still for no man… As to the list of things to make you grow I would add that being conversant in the latest findings in neuroscience and positive psychology wouldn’t hurt.

The Best Cure for High Prices is High Prices

On The Best of Sett

High prices usually mean large profits which lead to investment which leads to low prices. The best cure for high prices is high prices.  This is true even for charity.

 I recently shared a GoFundMe fund raiser with a friend of mine. She replied that, while it's great that this guy is getting help, it's too bad that less “sexy” causes, like a single mother with two children and cancer, couldn't use the same crowd funding for medical bills. She pointed out how unfair this was. The question is what's the best way to fix this disparity? I think, if we think about this logically, the answer is that “we” should do “nothing.” What?
