In this TED talk, “Using examples from vacations to colonoscopies, Nobel laureate and founder of behavioral economics Daniel Kahneman reveals how our “experiencing selves” and our “remembering selves” perceive happiness differently. This new insight has profound implications for economics, public policy — and our own self-awareness.” Interesting that our scriptures ask us to go with the flow and be in the present. Were they asking us to pay more attention to the ‘experiencing selves’ than our ‘remembering selves’.

“…..I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity. — Gilda Radner ……”

From O&M, I learnt today is Frederick von Hayek’s birthday. Following a series of links on O&M I ended up at this interesting comparison, Hayek Vs Hayek i.e., Salma Hayek Vs Frederick von Hayek. Wonder who won?

First up is this short and cute video from TED. The presenter uses this to explain how the first follower is as important as the leader himself. Interesting thought. Would want to think about its relevance to firm strategies at some point of time and write about it.
