Quotes About Decent Life

"reality usually delivers results a little worse than the worst-case scenario. Its called the planning fallacy, and the best way to fix it is to ask how long things took the last time you tried them. Thats called using the outside view instead of the inside view. But when youre doing something new and cant do that, you just have to be really, really, really pessimistic. Like, so pessimistic that reality actually comes out better than you expected around as often and as much as it comes out worse. Its actually really hard to be so pessimistic that you stand a decent chance of undershooting real life." - Author: Eliezer Yudkowsky
