Notes

  • An asymmetric opportunity is one in which the upside is much more significant than the downside.

  • Examples of asymmetric opportunities:

    • The stock market because it has unlimited upside potential.
    • Creating content because they are scalable products. People can consume them infinitely without any extra effort from you.
    • Learning in public because can create good opportunities for you, besides the knowledge that you gain.
  • Cryptocurrencies are asymmetric opportunities.
