How Not to Die

Survival sounds trivial, but as the #1 predictor of success, it's underrated. Let's break it down!

In a nutshell, it means:

1. Reducing risk
2. Building strength
3. Navigating crises Image
But why think survival is important?

It's a question worth considering from first principles.

"Deciding whether or not life is worth living is to answer the fundamental question in philosophy.” —Albert Camus
First, our survival is good for the universe.

Some disagree.

They think humanity is bad. We're destroying the earth through pollution, garbage, greenhouse gases, etc.
