The Knowledge Project with Shane Parrish
School teaches you to ask for permission rather than take action. School teaches you compliance, not discovery. School doesn’t teach the skills you need in the real world like how to build things, how to find problems to solve, or how to think for yourself.
Often the best decisions have no immediate payoff. The best choices tend to compound. Most of the benefits come at the end, not the beginning. The more patient you are, the bigger the payoff.
Integrity is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Discipline is a choice. Consistency is a choice. The sooner you make these choices, the further you will go.
