  • Distilled wisdom for the good life

    This is a beautifully written book that synthesises the ideas of many thinkers to argue that the good life is a function of collecting good options (with massive upside and capped downside). Meadows covers why having high-quality options is the best proxy for the good life; decision making under uncertainty; using options with capped downside and open upside to build health, wealth, skills and social capital; risk management; when to deliberately constrain your options; and meaning-making in a meaningless universe. While there’s financial advice aplenty, he presents financial independence as a critical enabler, not the goal itself. We should explore more, consciously making trade-offs, allowing the good life to emerge organically, bottom-up, rather than trying to plan it top-down. Never have I read something so profoundly erudite delivered so lightly.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A method for living your best life

    A method for living your best life and plenty of tips on what to do. Is mostly an edited by bundle his blog , but you couldn't get this experience from just reading it as the book weaves it together into a coherent narrative and framework. One of the best books I've read in the last few years.

    Thanks for your feedback!
