Why We Only Remember the Winners!

Why We Only Remember the Winners!

Do you know who the first man on the moon was? The first Indian to win the Olympic gold? History is notorious for honouring only the ones who have achieved the impossible. Emphasis on the word “achieved”. When we look at winners, it is easy to get swept up in the waves of their accomplishments; we want to emulate their journey. 

It is common knowledge that for every winner that exists, there are far more who didn’t win. What can we do to learn from the best and the second-best? Tune in to today’s episode as Varun breaks down ‘Survivorship Bias’.
