Quick Summary
- Asymmetric opportunities usually have meaningful upside in a success case, and meaningful learning or development in a downside case. - Young, smart people are afraid to look dumb so they follow safe paths that cap their downside, not realizing that they also cap their upside. - Especially when you’re young, accumulate optionality through the skills you gain, knowledge you acquire, and the unique experiences you undergo.
