Learn Through Pain

Or “pathema mathemata” (via Nassim Taleb)— that pain ain’t a bad thing. It is our guide. For example if we got a headache, don’t just take a pain killer but ask yourself:

Why is my body and brain signaling pain? What’s the root cause of the pain which needs to be addressed?

For example, overwork, unergonomic computing setup, lack of sleep, hangover, or something else.
