  • Erik: How are you learning to make better decisions?

  • Simon: Decision-making is a process. The question is what filters are you using to make decisions?

  • Are you making decisions based on the financial rewards? Are you making decisions based on

  • how easy the work will be? I remember in college, they would give you this book where they --all

  • the students would rate the classes and they would rate things like how easy the class

  • was and how much they liked the professor. And, you know, the first year, I picked all

  • my classes based on workload, and I picked everything a low workload, you know? And pretty

  • bored, didn't work very hard, which was fine, but nothing was dynamic, and nothing really

  • excited me, and I, thank goodness, learned that. And so the second year, I picked all

  • my classes by professor rating, regardless of the workload, so every class I had, I had

  • these dynamic amazing incredible human beings passing on their knowledge and you were excited

  • to work hard for them. And so again, the question is what are the filters we're using, and so

  • if you're only chasing the mighty dollar, then you'll have jobs that'll pay you a little

  • more than the last but are you enjoying yourself? And I talked to a guy recently who was in

  • a—he's in bad shape like he really hates his life and he's really depressed, and he

  • doesn't know what to do. And so we're going through all his old jobs, you know, and I

  • said, give me a job that you've loved, and he hadn't, every single job he's chosen out

  • of college, he picked because of the money, and if something offered him more somewhere

  • else, he took it. You know? Regardless. And the amazing thing is he plateaued because

  • if you're only chasing the result, if you're only chasing the thing that makes it easy,

  • right? Then eventually you will get bored, or they'll get bored of you, right? And you

  • plateau. In other words, chasing the almighty dollar, if that's your only thing, it eventually

  • flattens out, whereas if you're chasing the thing that excites you, the human beings to

  • be around, the work that excites you, the stuff that you know, you can get passionate

  • about, the irony is, is you'll actually make way, way more, right? Because you're excited

  • and they appreciate your excitement and they reward your excitement, and you're better

  • at your work because you wanna work harder and all of that stuff. You don't have the

  • strain to work harder. So decision-making is simply a matter of filters. And so I've

  • made decisions in my life that I would rather be happy than right, I'd rather do good than

  • get rich. And so the decisions I make put me in positions where when I leave any engagement,

  • when I leave any meeting, I feel that I've contributed, right? Rare are the times any

  • more where you walk around going, just think of the money, just think of the money, think

  • of the money, because it doesn't feel nice. And the experience I have I don't enjoy travelling

  • to them and I don't enjoy travelling home, where if I have an amazing experience, I'm

  • looking forward to getting there and I'm excited when I leave. So it's just decisiondecision-making

  • is just a matter of what filters you use, and if you're good about keeping those filters

  • up and clear then make your decision. I don't judge anybody by howif they choose to use

  • different filters, these are just the filters I choose to live my life. Not right or wrong,

  • just those are my decisions. That's my filter.
