Join copywriter Ben Settle and I as we discuss business, copywriting, persuasion, marketing, and much more.
The New York Times writes that people in higher social classes are often over-confident in their abilities. One possible reason given is that higher-economic-class have more to fall back on if they fail (of course, they have more to lose as well). The article ends with a suggestion that we punish overconfident people! Hogwash. I suggest you develop overconfidence, because that’s how we see a different future, how we prepare to take risks, and how we inspire others as a leader.
More evidence that our mood and behaviors are related to the foods we eat.
Buddhism has looked at our overactive brains for a lot longer than modern neuroscience, and has a deep understanding of what influences our thoughts and reactions.
