Things like grit and 10,000 hours are mindsets that are very misleading because they are consequences not causes https://t.co/uNg8AuahJa

When you list the four letters personality classification in Twitter bio you're saying - people told me I'm gullible, I believed them.Owing $FIT is like the device - you invest thinking it's value stock while stuck in value trap like you count steps thinking you are fit.Next time you pick up an hindsight bias ridden life history of a successful leader https://t.co/DbnFxwJ6f1We are close to perfect price discrimination - bye, bye posted price tags https://t.co/SiZh7syMMF @dcancel @PradSam what is best?What I need is a Fitbit to count how many times I look at Fitbit steps during the day#Pricing is share of value delivered. Fees on the other hand are not about value but about taking advantage of information imbalance.

Is it journalism, let alone objective, when they ask questions like, "did you feel god was with you at that moment?"? @putt1ck nothing is remote anymoreWhy are products adding "beautiful" as a feature (or is it benefit)?The Theranos story by the @WSJ @JohnCarreyrou @ScottMAustin is the best embodiment of business journalism. Literally saved lives

"Who cares—it doesn’t matter." - this is Why we are where we are$HQY has the worst possible fee structure - $4 monthly fee just to keep your money and $25 to close account.If you are going to charge for paper statement you should default to electronic and ask to change. Not other way.#HealthEquity #fail$50 Fire I got for $35 came with 6 month WaPo subscription and offered me to renew it for another 6 months for just $1. #disruptionMore like snake oil is now going to have billable hours https://t.co/h7fIfMgJ7R
