1. Consistent Improvement
Consistent improvement has many components but the most important are (in no particular order):
1. Transparency / honesty with coworkers
2. Setting clear goals and actually checking results against them
3. Distributed instead of centralized control
4. Constant seeking of external feedback
Luck can had by increasing the # of times that you try. Aka, increasing the # of things that you put out into the world. Conveniently, this will also help you with #4 under consistent improvement.
Its no guarantee that you’ll be a billionaire. But, if you follow those principles, at the end of your life you will be better off than when you started.
This also informs the way I look at the current political race. The main reason I’m opposed to Trump is that he violates all 4 of the points under “Consistent Improvement”. From what I’ve seen in history, “success” built on that never lasts more than a few decades. Often it has a terrible price.
