Instant feedback loops

There isn’t a noticeable piece of feedback if I switch from a chocolate bar to celery sticks. It’s only over time we receive the benefits.

And since so much of our feedback is instant, we have a hard time making decisions today that will improve our future.

There’s a reason why we still rely on fossil fuels even with the alternative technologies available. For too long, we invested in efficient, profitable systems rather than resilient ones.

Not all gratification is instant. We have to plant seeds.
