Being Good at What you Love

Joe Campbell famously advised young people to “follow their bliss”. All well and good, but as you follow, it is a good idea to master what brings this bliss about. As Dan Kahneman says in his book “Fast and Slow Thinking”, we largely rely on our intuitive thinking (which is where our bliss comes from). And our intuition is usually correct. But not always. It can and should be trained.

You don’t want to play the most important games in life as a beginner or intermediate player.
