I want to know where I would die so I can never go there.
— Charlie Munger
I was reading this blog about Charlie Munger and I loved it. His principle of living life in the inversion is fascinating.
I am trying to add a similar principle to myself. Instead of seeing or striving for success, it is better to look and avoid a recipe for failure. In short, eliminating all the risk for failures, success will be the byproduct.
In the end, success and failures are not in our hand, we have to enjoy the journey and make the best of it.
I am hoping one day I will totally stick by this saying of Epictetus.
Some things are in our control and others not. Things in our control are opinion, pursuit, desire, aversion, and, in a word, whatever are our own actions. Things not in our control are body, property, reputation, command, and, in one word, whatever are not our own actions.
