I mentioned that there’s a belief we hold dearly in western society and that is that the world is a meritocracy.
But most success is luck. There’s a great video by Veritasium (You should watch all his videos) that explains that more deeply. But basically, even if luck is only 5% and the rest is 95% skill. The people with the most luck with out. And it’s a bit easy to see if you think about it. There are millions(1)if not billions of people who work their butts off. Only a few are really successful. The reason is luck, and the ramifications of the Egocentric Bias.
Also, turns out I already wrote about this
“What chance has made yours, is not really yours”Seneca….maybe
