“Hustle porn” reminds me of a quora question asking if Elon Musk plays/played video games. The top answer listed all the companies he was involved in and how busy he was and how he obviously would not have the time for games and had spent his time building up knowledge/experience instead of wasting it on trivial things.


@aRandomCat That reminds of a Jordan Peterson bit about how the top of every field is occupied mostly by very unstable people, since they put all their time into progressing in that field at the cost of a balanced personal life.


@machado @aRandomCat That in turn reminds me of a Slate Star Codex post on a LessWrong article about success at the extremes: slatestarcodex.com/2018/09/25/
