The Starr Report: How Daniel Kahneman Helped Me Win at CrossFit

WYSIATI: the focusing illusion! Because we overemphasize the information that’s in front of our face, we don’t even realize how little we know. It’s easy to say that others who have what we want are lucky, simply because we often fail to see how different their lives are from our own.

Thank you, Daniel Kahneman, for helping me become the fittest female at my gym. You are the patron saint of my abs.

The Starr Report: Why Self-Esteem Will Make You Luckier

What is self-esteem? It’s a commonly misunderstood trait that commonly gets mistaken for narcissism, in which people have a high, unstable self-esteem. A healthy self-esteem is stable, and a high global self-esteem is actually a great predictor of life outcomes.

On this episode of The Starr Report: Why You Should Wear My Love Like a Tattoo:

Ready to get lucky?

Listen to the people who love you. Believe that they are worth living for even when you don’t believe it. Seek out the memories depression takes away and project them into the future. Be brave; be strong; take your pills. Exercise because it’s good for you even if every step weighs a thousand pounds. Eat when food itself disgusts you. Reason with yourself when you have lost your reason.
