Your gut is probably right

Let's say you're trying to get rich.

You've always thought that to become rich you had to work hard, grind your way to riches.

You start searching for ways to get rich on the Internet.

You find a lot of people confirming your bias.

Yes, you do have to work hard and grind your way to riches.

But let's say you've always thought that you didn't have to work hard, nor grind your way to riches.

You've always thought that working smart and in sprints of 4 hours a day is better than working hard for 12 hours and wasting your life away.

So you start searching for ways to get rich on the Internet.

And there you go, you find a bunch of videos and posts and Twitter threads confirming what you had already thought.

Working smart > working hard.

Both of the scenarios end up the same way.

You can confirm your bias, whatever it is, on the internet.

Talk to all the people in the world, and you will, without a doubt, confirm what you already think is right.

There are billions of people posting online, sharing their thoughts, and sharing their own experiences.

Some of them work hard and get rich. Some of them work smart and get rich. Some of them work hard AND smart and get rich.

In the end, it doesn't matter.

You end up confirming your bias and doing what you thought was right in the first place.

Then...why waste time?
