Ask yourself 1 question to make truly important decisions (and avoid lifelong regrets) [memo]

For me, the right way to make that kind of very personal decision, because those decisions are personal, they're not like data-driven business decisions. They are, "What does your heart say?"

And for me, the best way to think about it was to project myself forward to age 80 and say, "Look, when I'm 80 years old, I want to have minimized the number of regrets that I have." I don't want to be 80 years old and in a quiet moment of reflection, thinking back over my life, and cataloguing a bunch of major regrets.

In most cases our biggest regrets turn out to be acts of omission. It's paths not taken and they haunt us. We wonder what would have happened. I knew that when I'm 80, I would never regret trying this thing (quitting a good job to start Amazon) that I was super excited about and it failing.

If it failed, fine. I would be very proud of the fact when I'm 80 that I tried. And I also knew that it would always haunt me if I didn't try. And so that would be a regret, it would be 100 percent chance of regret if I didn't try and basically a 0 percent chance of regret if I tried and failed. That's a useful metric for any important life decision.

瑞浪 2017 Winter [diary]

4Z3A2251.jpg

みなさんの新年が、魔法と夢と、善良なる狂気に満たされますように。すばらしい本を読み、すばらしいと思う人にキスをして、それから芸術も忘れないでほしい。執筆したり、描いたり、作ったり、歌ったり、または、あなただけにできる生き方をしてください。そして来年のいつか、あなたが自分自身に驚かれることを期待します。

...あなたにとってすばらしい年になりますように。過激で突飛な夢を見る年であり、これまではあり得なかった何かを実現させる年であり、あなたが愛され慕われる年であり、その見返りとして、人々に誰かを愛し慕うように促す年であり、そしてなにより大切なことは(今の世界には、優しさと知恵が欠如していると感じられるので)、ここぞというときには賢く、そして常に優しくいられる年でありますように。

君の膵臓をたべたい [movie]

そっちこそ、やりたいことしなくていいの?
もしかしたら明日突然、君が先に死ぬかもしれないのに。

私も君も、1日の価値は一緒だよ。
