Question 12: If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
I guess the assumption is this baby would be able to understand me and to take my advice to heart. In that case, I would advise the baby to question everything. I feel a lot of trouble in the world is caused when people stop questioning and start blindly following. Are people asking why hedge fund managers make $500k/year when they contribute nothing to society? Are people asking why elections are decided by which candidate has the most money?
I feel we learn the most when we ask questions. We should continuously try to figure out why and how things work.
