Link of the day: 95-percentile isn’t that good
Reaching 95%-ile isn’t very impressive because it’s not that hard to do. I think this is one of my most ridiculable ideas. It doesn’t help that, when stated nakedly, that sounds elitist. But I think it’s just the opposite: most people can become (relatively) good at most things.
Quite interesting post about how easy it is (or should be) for people to get better at things in life. Also a good introduction to actually figuring out how to improve effectively.
