Mind Crunch : The Wealth Curse

Some people are planning today to buy a house 10 years in the future. And other people are planning today to sell a house 10 years in the future. But there is no market open today to ensure that the number currently planning to buy a house 10 years in the future equals the number currently planning to sell a house 10 years in the future. Planned future excess demands are almost always non-zero, even in a world of perfectly flexible prices. Our planned future trades are "false trades", at disequilibrium expected future prices. It is impossible for us all to realise our current plans for future trades.

Mind Crunch : 6.22.11 : Comfort?

Image source

All of the driving force in my life has been to move myself from one uncomfortable position to a more comfortable one.  That’s why we, as humans, will put forth that extra energy needed to get a raise, sit farther away from homeless people on the bus, or deal with Comcast for any reason ever.  When we reach that comfort zone, we become attached to it, not wanting to enhance our lives by exploring new paths. We’re at the point to where we can either keep our minds focused, or let them soften to the great wave of entertainment flowing by.

Mind Crunch : 6.7.11 : Elevator Economics

Do you get annoyed when someone boards the elevator with you only to ride up one floor? The stairs are right there, could they not just walk up a single flight? Well, consider this.  Someone boards the elevator on the first floor with a 3rd floor destination,  but instead of getting off at floor 2 and walking the last flight of stairs, they ride all the way to 3.

Mind Crunch 6.5.11 : From a 7 to a 10

A frequent question I ask when trying to improve some area of my life is: If I were to rate this area’s current performance on a scale of 1-10, with 1 being the worst imaginable and 10 being the best imaginable, where am I right now?

Very often I find that areas get stuck somewhere in the 6-8 range, usually at a 7. A 7 seems very close to a 9 or 10, but often a 7 is a local maximum — you can’t get any higher by continuing to follow the same path that got you to that 7 in the first place. You’re already at a peak. The only way to reach a true 9 or 10 is to climb back down (sometimes back to a 2 or 3) and take a new path.

Mind Crunch : 6.1.11 : The Horse or the Jockey

Image source

Many people who want to start their own businesses and many people who want to invest in others’ ideas search answer of this question: "Which is more important the idea or the entrepreneur?" .

In academic journals, this is referred to as the horse (idea) and jockey (entrepreneur) debate. The horse and jockey analogy reflects two different financing philosophies: Either you believe the idea is the key and bet on the horse, or you believe management is the key and bet on the jockey. "Another way to phrase it is to say that you either bet on an A-team with a B-idea or on a B-team with an A-idea.

Mind Crunch : 5.31.11 : The Parable of Pottery Class

Image source

There was once a pottery teacher who decided to run an experiment with her class. At the start of the course, she divided the class into two groups, each of which would be graded differently at the end of the course.

The first group was instructed that they were to focus on the creation of a single pot. The quality and historical integrity of this pot would be the sole determining factor of their grade in the course.

The second group was instructed to create as many pots as possible. Their grade was to be determined by the quantity of pots they produced throughout the course, not the quality of the work.
