When it comes to learning, do you really want to settle for status quo?
If so, what you are actually saying is that the cost to switch to something different is too high. That cost could manifest itself as more time, more money, more stress, or some other resource or pain.
You may not know it, but what you're trying to do is this:
That's the formula for Prospect Theory developed by Daniel Kahneman. Essentially it helps weighs risk against reward. It helps answers the question, "Does it make sense to put forth more effort to achieve something different than what I currently have?"
Do you want to:
- Break out
- Achieve something new
- Teach something differently
- Move in a different direction
If so, don't worry about the math -- just make it happen and leave the status quo behind. It's a choice only you can make and we hope you join us to do just that.
