You Are Not a Lottery Ticket

Great talk from Peter Thiel.

You are incredibly biased. There is no luck.

It is worth it for us to explore thinking about the future.


Many times in your life you will have big decisions to make. ¬†Most of the time you will think you made the right one, and even though you didn’t, you’ll convince yourself the decision was the right one.

Sometimes, though, the decision will feel right, right from the start.

Leaving Apple without a job lined up feels right. From the moment I gave notice it felt right. And I believe no matter what happens, it is, in fact, one of the best decisions I have ever made.
