After working with amazing views for a while I started wondering..
Do you think working with a view would make us happier or more productive at work?
Or it would become the norm after a while and lose it's effect (hedonic adaptation)?
Maybe it has more value to have it from time to time and appreciate it when we do, instead of having it always and stop appreciating it?
Sharing a thought provoking read by Cass Sunstein: “Evolution favors the most cooperative — and the friendliest.” What if the ones that survive and thrive are not the fittest - but the ones who learn to be friendly, cooperative and see past the silly (societal some would say) divisions? I love reading his books and his articles and had the opportunity to attend his classes that have been just as exciting!
How to pick a grad school for studying abroad? Naturally, one of the first steps should be checking the international academic rankings. A great idea for the second step is to do some research and see which ones of your most followed researchers work at which university. For example, for a long time I have been following the work of Cass Sunstein on how behavioural sciences (and behavioural economy) can be used for empowering changes. He is teaching at Harvard Law School - so by pursuing my degree there, I could attend his classes, talks and engage in discussions on the issues I’ve been so passionate about.
Before every experiment you carefully plan everything, you read books and articles, you do the math, you check it twice. And if you're done everything right you succeed.
The next day you do the same. And the day after. You're repeating the same procedure over and over. And you failing every time.
If something happened once it doesn't mean it will happen every time.
Hip hip hurrays for the randomness and flukes in our universe.
Same with life there are a lot of opportunities that might present itself just one time in your life. Pursue it and take advantage of it. Because the fluke might not happen again.
