Understanding the Connection Between Sleep and Anxiety

Research findings suggesting that sleep loss and anxiety are closely linked were among those presented at Neuroscience 2018, the annual conference of the Society for Neuroscience, held in San Diego, California. The news isn’t all dire, however — this year’s event offered some science-based encouragement along with causes for concern. Neuroscience continues focusing on the mysteries of sleep (and…

The radical moral implications of luck in human life

In July 2018 (when we first published this piece), there was a minor uproar when Kardashian scion Kylie Jenner, who is all of 21, appeared on the cover of Forbes’s 60 richest self-made women issue. As many people pointed out, Jenner’s success would have been impossible if she hadn’t been born white, healthy, rich, and famous. She built…

It’s Never Too Late

THINK YOU’RE TOO old (or young) to make it in trading? Do you think that ‘if I was going to make it, then I would have done it already’? Think again. At age 23, Tina Fey was working at a YMCA. At age 23, Oprah was fired from her first reporting job. At age 24,…

False Economy

OK… I’D JUST ARRIVED. Fiji in the Winter. 29 degrees outside. Palm trees swaying… check. Ocean view… check. Bottle of water from the mini-bar to quench my thirst… check. Oh my goodness! $7.50 for that thimble-full of water. That’s ludicrous. So – I go an ask at reception “Where are the closest shops?” “Just around…

The Power of Now is BS

WITH HER VOICE trembling, she asked “But when do I start making money?” Tears began to roll down her face. Yet… she had no written trading plan, no knowledge about trading and had only ever placed three trades. I stared at her like a Labrador that has heard a high-pitched noise. Really? I mean… REALLY?…

Linus Pauling Report Card

For those who dont know who Linus Pauling is he won the 1954 Nobel Prize for Chemistry.  I dont count his 1962 Nobel Peace Prize since this is just a popularity contest. The only person to have won two true Nobel Prizes is Marie Curie. He got an F in Gymnasium in the second semester…

WTF Does This Mean?

Recently I have had occasion to be using LinkedIn because people for some reason instead of emailing me send me messages instead. I find LinkedIn to be fascinating. If Facebook is your slightly brain dead unemployed bogan cousin then LinkedIn is your archetypal idiot private school boy whose parents always bailed him out of trouble,…

The Great Paradox of Peak Performance

Trying really hard works—and then it gets in your way Peak performance happens as a result of trying really hard, and then not trying at all. It’s a paradox. I’ve never met someone who has described a breakthrough performance as effortful or straining or tight. It’s the opposite: when people are at their best—whether it’s on…

Smart People Don’t Do Dumb Things In Seven Seconds

It’s said we judge the people around us within the first seven seconds of meeting them. I think something similar happens online. I don’t know what the scientific word is for this, but one image, video, or headline from a Twitter account can push us from 0 to 100 (real quick). This is not a…

Why Does It Feel Like Everyone Has More Money Than You?

In 2011, my parents gave me a sum of money that was both outrageous and, in the real estate terms of major cities, quite reasonable: 10 percent down on the 250-square-foot apartment I still own in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. While I was conflicted about taking it, there wasn’t much of a question about whether I’d…
