3 Droplets of Leadership

  1. Winners Keep on Winning

    Cumulative advantage, or the Matthew effect, explains how those who start with an advantage relative to others can retain that advantage over long periods of time.

    Accepting luck as a primary determinant in your life is one of the most freeing ways to view the world.

  2. The Paradox Of Choice

    Autonomy and freedom of choice are critical to our well-being, and choice is critical to freedom and autonomy.

    Nonetheless, people have more choice today than ever had before, and thus, presumably, more freedom and autonomy, we don’t seem to be benefiting from it psychologically.

  3. Free Stuff Makes Us Do Pretty Much Anything

    According to the 2019 Walker Sands Future of Retail Survey, 77% of 1.6k respondents said free shipping had made them more likely to buy an item online, ranking far above inducements like same-day shipping or the ability to visualize products in 3D.

    When people see something for free, they don’t see the downside.

    Check out how free stuff drives our behaviours.
