The cold hard fact is that you’re an idiot.
And I’m going to prove it to you right now.
Think back to when you were half your current age.
So if you’re 32, think back to when you were 16.
What brilliant life decisions were you making?
How much did you know about anything?
Compared to what you know now, would you say, oh, maybe… you were pretty much an idiot?
Ok, let’s continue.
Split the age difference, so halfway between 16 and 32 in my example is 24.
How much did you know then?
Think you might make some different choices given the wisdom you’ve gained since?
Yeah, I thought so.
Still an idiot.
So, do you think this process ends at some point?
That you stop getting smarter, learning more about life?
The fact is, ten years from now you’re going to realize that, in comparison, you were an idiot today.
You’re an idiot.
