Stop figuring out how to make your highs higher and start making your lows not so low.
Big wins are exciting. But the biggest wins come from avoiding situations that take you out and doing work that build on itself.
So you need to optimize for the ability to play the game of life without getting wrecked.
The danger isn’t that you’re incapable of achievement.
It’s that you’ll make a mistake or experience a tragedy that makes it impossible for you to keep trying.
So forget about your goal for a while and stabilize yourself so you won’t be wrecked by a low point in your life. This gives you a better chance of success. Because you’ll have more time, opportunities, and ability to take risks to get there.
