  1. That John Wooden bit is a tremendous idea to always consider, a favorite of mine; and it’s a tremendous way to set the tone of your article. Enjoyed reading that this morning. Nice work here, Ami.

    I also liked you bringing up Emerson on opportunity cost. I remember talking w/ my gilfriend about how Americans watch an average of 4 or 6 hours of tv a day (can’t remember which now, it came from a study reported by the Times in late ’11). No idea where anyone gets all that time, or doesn’t feel like a lazy spud after a couple hours on the couch. Reading something new, like on psych or law or an interesting historical event, for even twenty minutes is doing something right. It really is investing your mind. And “Anatomy of Injustice” is to-read for me, my significant other had recommended that the other week. :)
