On Being A Father

As my friend Chris said during our recent time away, “I want to be able to look back on my life and know that I did the absolute best I could with the time and resources I was given.” There’s probably no other area of my life where this resonates more than fatherhood. http://www.seasoninvestments.com/insights/on-being-a-father/

Thinking in Probabilities

One of the most popular rules of thumb that is commonly used is to judge the quality of a decision based solely on the outcome it produces. This is known as a resulting bias where we use the benefit of hindsight to judge the merits of a decision that was made under uncertainty about the future, but this quickly leads to less than optimal decisions. http://www.seasoninvestments.com/insights/thinking-in-probabilities/
