I create visual one pager book summaries… including this one, Scarcity: Why Having Too Little Means So Much.
But let’s play with this and see if I can fit in a sensical, rapid-fire textual summary. Ready? Go…
Scarcity Is a mindset, affecting behavior when we feel we have too little of something… which can help us focus when there is little time left… but causes tunneling, to be blind to our periphery… while neglecting other important things in life, thus… reducing our mental bandwidth, affecting personal performance. Slack is the opposite, a feeling of abundance. We often borrow what’s scarce when tunneling to move forward now… and juggle between many current and pressing needs. All of this to say that in some way, perhaps we can create an abundance mindset for ourselves and others by creating periods of moderation.
Textual summary + visual summary = my serious summarization affliction… and hopefully, helping you learn and remember something quickly. Yes? No?
