Learning Curve

Learning Curve

If you are not familiar with the Dunning-Krueger theory, it goes like this: 

"A cognitive bias in which people wrongly overestimate their knowledge or ability in a specific area."

When learning anything, it's often the case that we're immediately confronted with how little we know about the thing we're trying to learn.

This visual represents that journey. 

From not knowing, to not knowing even more, to enlightenment.

"Experience is the comb that nature gives us after we are bald." – Belgian Proverb

Over long periods of time, building and betting can both be positive-sum games.

We are present when we can experience reality without being consumed by what has already been or what might be.

Learning is like climbing an infinite ladder.

We're conditioned to think of a single percentage point as an almost non-consequential gain. In conventional wisdom investing, 1% would be laughed at.

How long it takes to learn something is a better proxy for how valuable something is than how long it takes to do something.

It's comforting to think that hitting a certain target or achieving a definable milestone will bring us lasting comfort.

If you make $10,000 or $1,000,000 and spend 100% of it, the outcome is the same.
