Reflection on Mortality - this meditation technique might be heavy but it's a worthwhile exercise. Meditating in depth can change the way we view life.

Reflection on Mortality

We're often an irrational species. We do things like voting for the best-looking political candidate and buying lottery tickets.

Unfortunately, we didn't evolve for rationality at all. We're an emotional species, with a limbic system (emotional brain) that's about 170 million years old and a neocortex (logical brain) that's only 40 million years old. Our rational brain is often out-matched. Some psychologists, like Dr. William von Hippel, believe that IQ is in fact an evolutionary byproduct of EQ, rather than the other way around.

So if we want to behave rationally, we need an upgrade to our software program that can come in the form of meditation. That's why Ray Dalio, who runs one of the biggest hedge funds in the world, meditates and even said, “Meditation, more than anything in my life, was the biggest ingredient of whatever success I’ve had.” In the world of investing, emotional decisions don’t produce good returns.
