Would be really interested in more research on this topic as you come across it. Another often overlooked aspect of learning how to learn is the impact of emotions on learning (fear of failure and judgement, insecurity, frustration, etc.)

Before you begin, think as if you are a lazy person. Assume the competition will work harder. Your only chance is a better strategy. After you begin, work as if you are a dumb person. Assume the competition is smarter and more talented. Your only chance is to outwork them.

It's RIGHT, because there are good points... 1. There are tax loopholes available to the wealthy. 2. Many wealthy people influence politics. 3. Globalization, digitization, & automation lead to more inequality. 4. To be extremely successful, luck was is a factor.

It's SCARY, because it's a slippery slope. Should we condemn millionaires too? Great athletes? Anybody who spends 10,000+ hours to be the best in their field and makes a lot more than others?

This trend is awkward, scary, right, and wrong... It's AWKWARD for me, because... As an entrepreneur, I've spent a lot of my life studying, being inspired by, and using the products of great entrepreneurs like Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett, & Steve Jobs.

Over the last year, there has been a trend to make the case that... 1. We should "abolish billionaires" (via NY Times) 2. Billionaires only become billionaires by taking, not making 3. Billionaires are lazy (via ) This video below is one example..
