Confused in life? We’ve got you covered😌 Lets learn how to be a decision making Ninja. 🥷
Today, we are going to talk about Razors. Not the Gillette ones but the razors that shave off the confusion and simplify decision making.
You must have used so many razors in your life but we bet you are going to love our razors the most 😉
So, without any further ado, let’s have a look at 5 Razors that can make you a decision making Ninja 🥷
The Feynman Razor
If you can’t explain it to a 5 year old, then you don’t completely understand it.
Complexity sounds fancy but simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. Be simple, clear and precise. Don’t be a brilliant jerk and stay away from those who are one.
The Arena Razor
When presented with different paths, choose the path that puts you in the arena.
There are always way more spectators than the players, but the players are the ones who get the chance to win, who learn, play and grow. x
Be the player and don’t get distracted by the noise from the sidelines.
The Lion Razor
Always sprint then rest.
Gone were the days when muscles were used more than mind. If your goal is to do the creative and logical work, build stuff, then work like a Lion.
Sprint when the inspiration strikes. Rest and recharge. Repeat.
The Investment vs Spending Razor
You can either “invest” or “spend” time.
What do you do with your time? If you read a book, hit the gym, practice meditation etc. then you are investing your time. But if you are overthinking stuff or gossiping with friends for hours, then you are spending your time.
Time is money. Use it wisely.
The young & old Razor
Make decisions that your 80 year old self and 10 year old self both would be proud of.
For the 80-year old, a good decision would be calm, calculated, logical and profitable.
For the 10-year old, a good decision would be the one that brings happiness.
The point is, if the decision doesn’t make you healthy, wealthy and happy, then it’s not the right one.
