24 Powerful Razors - Simplify Decision Making


A “razor” is a rule of thumb that simplifies decision-making. This list contains many gems. My favourites include:

  • Luck - When choosing between two paths, choose the path that has a larger luck surface area.
  • New Projects - Imagine that this will take 2x as long and be 1/2 as profitable as you expect. Do you still want to do it?
  • Listen mode - If you encounter someone with opinions or perspectives very different from your own, listen twice as much as you speak.
