@vgr Maybe there should be an risk-seeking vs. risk avoidant and dumb vs. Smart 2x2.

@BruceJia so make one; I'm not the dictator of 2x2land :)

@vgr That shows I'm risk avoidant, which I tend to be. How can I be less risk-avoidant?

@BruceJia @vgr What's the worst that could happen if you do X?

@BruceJia @vgr learn to notice the hesitation right when it happens and force yourself to take one more step before quitting.

@BruceJia @vgr also take some risks that you can afford to fail. Buy a single 50$ share of stock. Watch how you feel. When it goes down watch how you feel. Get used to the feeling. Watch how you feel when you try to talk yourself out of the whole experiment.
