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.

When I look back on my life choices in 2010-2011, I shudder. I wasted so much time that could have been put to better use. I could have sped up my progress in my business, physical, social, and emotional life in such rapid ways by changing my actions that it almost makes me sick.

Move on. There isn’t much I can do about my past save for learn from it, and I intend to do that to the fullest. My principal problem back then was the massive consumption of information. If Leonardo Da Vinci was alive, he’d be astonished at the breadth of topics I covered ;)

I held two mistaken beliefs:

1. More information = better
