Conscious Culture 57: Miller's Law
Jan 13, 2022 12:07 am
Welcome to Conscious Culture, a weekly newsletter full of interesting reads for curious, intelligent people who want to sharpen their minds
Thank you for being here.
I'm currently taking a software engineering immersive course at General Assembly. Last week, we had to create our first project. I created a Simon game. Check out the game in fun stuff and let me know what you think.
This week's newsletter explores:
- How to become the best in the world at something
- Ideas want to be shared
- The disease of more
- Miller’s law
Feel free to hit reply and let me know what you think.
“Trying to be the best at one thing isn’t the smartest path to success. Instead, you should put your effort into mastering a combination of skills. The solution is skill stacking”
“It is in the commons that ideas blossom. When scientific discoveries are shared, they can be accelerated. When the blueprints of inventions are shared (and not hidden) new inventions spring up faster. Walt Disney made his fortune by reworking public domain fairy tales.”
“There’s a famous concept in sports known as the “Disease of More.”..Riley said that the Disease of More explains why teams who win championships are often ultimately dethroned, not by other, better teams, but by forces from within the organization itself.”
“Miller's Law was formulated by George Miller, Princeton Professor and respected psychologist. It reminds us of the importance of suspending judgment about what someone else is saying.”
