#ProtectingSight #421: Define your fears instead of your goals. Traumatic zonulodialysis, white cataracts, & temporal crescents. The Joys of Compounding, Tao of Warren Buffett, & Richer, Wiser, Happier.

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

1. Ted Talk – Tim Ferriss: Why you should define your fears instead of your goals. “The hard choices — what we most fear doing, asking, saying — are very often exactly what we need to do. How can we overcome self-paralysis and take action? Tim Ferriss encourages us to fully envision and write down our fears in detail, in a simple but powerful exercise he calls “fear-setting.” Learn more about how this practice can help you thrive in high-stress environments and separate what you can control from what you cannot.” (ted.com description)

Excellent Ted Talk. Filled with insights & empathy.
