Thinks 31

Dan Shipper on stress and peak performance: “Stress isn’t good or bad. It’s a tool. In small doses it’s good, but too much of a good thing becomes a bad thing pretty quickly. When your stress response is working properly it makes you run faster, your memory gets better, you’re able to focus better. But when your stress response is over-activated, or chronically activated—you get ulcers and heart disease. It’s bad!”

Morgan Housel on Writing: “You have five seconds to get people’s attention. Books, blogs, emails, reports, it doesn’t matter – if you don’t sell them in five seconds you’ve exhausted most of their patience.”

James Buchanan: “Politicians and bureaucrats are no different from the rest of us. They will maximize their incentives just like everybody else.”
