Protecting Sight #310: Lesson learned from 100 days of rejection. A decentered IOL & carotid-cavernous sinus fistulas. Richer, Wiser, Happier: How the world’s greatest investors win in markets and life.

Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Jia Jiang: What I learned from 100 days of rejection. “Jia Jiang adventures boldly into a territory so many of us fear: rejection. By seeking out rejection for 100 days — from asking a stranger to borrow $100 to requesting a “burger refill” at a restaurant — Jiang desensitized himself to the pain and shame that rejection often brings and, in the process, discovered that simply asking for what you want can open up possibilities where you expect to find dead ends.” (

Am amazing Ted Talk which i shared with my nieces and nephews.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1078: Cataract Quiz – you see this post-op. Great teaching pearl.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Carotid cavernous fistula.

Dr. Lee’s 450+ neuro-ophthalmology reviews are perfect for the busy clinician & trainee.


This episode is an instant classic. William Green is the author of Richer, Wiser, Happier: How the World’s Greatest Investors Win in Markets and Life (2021). Loved listening to the mindset, discipline, and other learning pearls of an investor’s journey. Green shares stories of humility, preparation, candor, success, adversity, failure and so much more.

I’ve pre-ordered Richer, Wiser, Happier & it’s now on the top of my reading list.
