The nature of people & drunkenness

    the "ability to see the board"

    "comfort limit" - how far you move without fear

    what chaos could look like vs what it is (hint: when it's limited, it's chaos)

    bias as confirmation

    what controls the perception : b/w tax

    the % metric vs the $

Expectations of the drunken

    negative reinforcement is the answer?

    overdraft fees

    payday loans

    the purpose of interest

    bureaucracy/forms

    how to handle not having enough? (same as overwhelm)

    scale all

    scale none, pay 1

    weighted scale (NEW)

    the goal: reduce overwhelm

    stability is a function of trust

    trust is a function of repeat success / hope

Hacking Your Way to Relentless Sobriety

    use bias to your advantage - the jam experiment in reverse

    staying above the law of averages (mean performance over time)

    how?

    Tony Robbins 10-20% interest

    adjustable rounding

    comfort-limit awareness
