Seinfeld's rules, the stink of regressive social decay, questions about progress, and a few brief points on noticing and consciousness
I like the that writing advice, as I appreciate the intention of not letting someone’s opinion impact (at least too heavily) on our work. And I would add even after the day of sharing the piece with the world, I still don’t want my opinion or feeling towards the piece to be too heavily impacted by how others have viewed it. Of course, I appreciate people’s feedback - but I try to remind myself that if I was happy enough with the piece to share it, then that should be all that matters.
I believe less in overall human progress and more with trade offs and incentives being the driving forces of humanity.
