success is the result of good judgement

Success is result of good judgement:

“Success is the result of good judgement”
– Tony Robbins


The meaning behind the quote:

In the talk Tony Robbins follows up the quote by saying:

“Success is the result of good judgment.

You can make great decisions. You’re going to succeed.

But where does good judgment come from?

You know, good judgment often comes from experience and experience often comes from bad judgment.

So I found the way to speed it up is not learned through my own experience, but learned by modeling others compressing decades in to days.

How do you decide who whom you’re going to help?

Well, first of all, I try to to do things online.

You know, like there’s a zillion things on YouTube, so no one has to spend any money.

Anybody who wants to be inspired. The only thing I don’t like about that is it’s random.

I’m a system guy, like I know how to take you from here to there. So I have products that can do that for people.”

How can you learn to make good decisions?

You develop different models or ways of thinking. You can take on a problem with different lenses or view it with a different set of mental frameworks.

I graduated with a life science degree and what they try to ingrain in every student was the scientific method. To be indifferent towards the result (i.e. avoid biases) and form a controlled experiment to test a hypothesis. The goal is not to prove the hypothesis right, but try to disprove it. There is more information in getting it wrong then getting it right. If you were wrong you take what you learn and formulate a revised hypothesis and repeat the process.

People who graduate with a statistics background probably view the the world in probabilities.

Charlie Munger often discusses inversion as a good mental model. Jokingly he always says, “All I want to know is where I’m going to die so I’ll never go there.” This is the main idea behind inversion.

Poem on inversion

“The thoughts of others Were light and fleeting, Of lovers’ meeting Or luck or fame. Mine were of trouble, And mine were steady; So I was ready When trouble came.”
