Black Swan life lessons

In case you missed them t'other week, you can find Nassim Nicholas Taleb's life lessons here, as part of his Sunday Times profile by Bryan Appleyard (a profile which, btw, Taleb rates). I particularly like this one:

Wear your best for your execution and stand dignified. Your last recourse against randomness is how you act — if you can’t control outcomes, you can control the elegance of your behaviour. You will always have the last word.


The one about going to parties is quite useful too.
