How do you make good decisions? What are the key components? The answer to these questions, of course, is important. After all, the quality of your decisions can make or break your life. That’s why we should strive to improve the quality of our decisions. I’ve written about some aspects of decision making before, such as probabilistic thinking and risk management.

A while back, I found a quote that got me thinking: “Amateurs think about tactics. But professionals think about logistics.” I first heard it in an episode of Hardcore History podcast.

Do you want to reach your full potential? A big part of that, I believe, is managing your risks.

I’m constantly learning how to better manage my risks, but I’d like to share what I’ve learned so far with you. Here are my four lessons learned on how to manage risks.
What is the key to being creative? What is the factor behind it? I believe that the answer to this question is important. After all, being creative is essential in this age of automation.

I already wrote about creativity before (here is one), but this time I’d like to take a different view. I’d like to focus on what I believe is a key factor to being creative: diversity.
