Time & Volatility: Holy Matrimony

Can we talk for a second? I think if we level with each other, we can acknowledge that the last couple of years have been ripe with enough cluster fuck energy for the rest of our lives, wouldn’t you say?

There’s learning here for us, though. My favorite contemporary philosopher, Nassim Taleb, once said:

“In probability, time and volatility are the same.”

What’s it mean? It means the shit show is coming. It’s not if, it’s when. And, once there’s an acknowledgement of that it feels less like doom and gloom, if you ask me. It feels more like this is the water we swim in. This is the game we play. 

If, then, we want to play the game of life well, we ought to not just play to win. We ought to understand that “winning” isn’t eliminating volatility but rather mastering our responses to it.
