Play on the right field

It’s sad watching someone over-capitalize on a house in a neighborhood past its prime. It almost always ends badly.

Emotional decisions trump economic ones and good money gets spent after bad because of ego and hubris. It’s a waste of treasure and time.

Unlock it

Authenticity is a truth syrum.

“Truth can break the gates down, truth can howl in the street; unless truth is pleasing, personable and easy to like, she is condemned to stay whimpering at the back door.”

― Hilary Mantel, Bring Up The Bodies

Low and slow

The majority of airplane accidents happen during the landing sequence. The plane is moving low and slow which narrows the margin for error. A mistake of misjudgment is fatal because there is less time and momentum to correct the error.

If a mistake is made at high altitude, the pilot has time and speed to course correct.

Make your mistakes or experiment when you have a buffer and have time and momentum to course correct. Don’t get cocky when you are moving low and slow. It could prove fatal.
