“It’s a rare person who wants to hear what he doesn’t want to hear.”
— Richard Cavett
Here are 3 articles you’d want to read this Sunday. And of course, you do not have to read all 3; even one of them read and assimilated well would be enough learning for the day!
The article discusses game economies but is relevant for learning fundamental economic principles and basics of how currencies and systems of exchange work. It might offer you some ideas to gamify your own product's experience.
People say exponential curves and compound interest aren't intuitive to our thinking. Well, this essay becomes essential reading if you want to understand just how counterintuitive nonlinearity can be sometimes.
An essay that delves into the psychology of how spaces within homes are structured for emotional regulation and takes a look at their design from a systems perspective. Give it a read; it will make you a better systems thinker for sure.
Some food for thought:
“The universities do not teach all things. A doctor must seek out old wives, gypsies, sorcerers, wandering tribes, old robbers, and such outlaws and take lessons from them. A doctor must be a traveller because he must enquire of the world. Experiment is not sufficient. Experience must verify what can be accepted or not accepted."
That’s it for today. Enjoy your Sunday, keep learning, and don’t forget to share these reads with your friends! 😄
I’ll see you tomorrow.
