On Story

Be Messy. Be Human. Be Suspicious of Stories.

Tyler Cowen recommends we remain discerning in a world filled with stories; their requisite simplifications and need for order prompts us to think of our lives in terms of a neat narrative. Cowen urges, “You can never get out of the pattern of thinking in terms of stories, but you can improve the extent to which you think in terms of stories and make better decisions.”

Be Messy. Be Human. Also tell the story that’s uninspiring.
