List of things I think are worth reading (last updated 3/1/2021)

Really great summaries! 

I'd list this thread if I ever made a list of things worth reading. 

The point on normal distributions is fascinating. I've heard Jordan Peterson mention this phenomenon to explain why males populate the prisons even though they are only slightly more aggressive than women on average, but I think the finland vs india example is even better.

Also - the point on how to read a book. I've never heard of that breakdown. I think I'll use it when digesting information in the future.

Btw, why did you put log(popularity) in the denominator? 

Does making unsteady incremental progress work?

Awesome post! I wonder if there's a take-home that can improve motivation for some people here. I'm not convinced that telling people they don't have to be perfect everyday will work. It could give them an out. A rationalisation on any given day that "it's okay to slack today if I pull up the average later on". 

 

Also how do you create these graphs? They're awesome
