The five cognitive distortions of people who get things done: 🏆 Personal exceptionalism 🏁 Black and white thinking 🙌 Correct overgeneralization 🖼 Blank canvas thinking 👊 Schumpeterianism A thread 👇
🏆 Personal exceptionalism: a macro sense that you are in the top of your cohort, your work is snowflake-special Benefit: resilience, stamina, charisma Risk: assuming macro-exceptionalism means micro-exceptionalism
🏁 Black and white thinking (dichotomous thinking) Being extremely judgemental of people, experiences, things; highly opinionated at the extreme, only sees black and white, little grey Benefit: achieves excellence frequently Risk: perfectionism
🙌 Correct overgeneralization Making universal judgements from limited observations and being right a lot of the time Benefits: saves time Risk: addiction to instinct and indifference to data
🖼 Blank canvas thinking Sees own life as a blank canvas, not as paint-by-numbers (or scripted life) Benefits: colors outside the lines, creates surprises Risk: being different just to be different (hipsters), failure to launch, failure to scale
👊 Schumpeterianism Sees creative destruction (e.g. disrupting industries, scenes or companies) as natural, necessary, and as their job Benefits: fearlessness, tolerance for destruction and pain Risk: heartless ambition, alienation

If you are young, please don't buy into Nigeria's gerontocratic culture or the entitlement ethos. Stop waiting for handouts and for people to help you. Chart your career & life and just start EXECUTING. Create opportunities and be aggressive. If not, life will simply pass you by.
FYI: The working class and poor in America come in all races, ethnicities, able bodied, and non, different genders, sexuality’s & religions. If someone say’s they want to help the working class and you assume, white, ask yourself why and who made you think that? Stop being played
