Every Friday, I share with you one principle that has inspired me.
In this episode, I share with you one principle by Richard Feynman: "You must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool."
In our daily life, we have to make multiple decisions daily. It becomes really hard when you don’t have any key points based on what you will make that particular decision. Our understanding of the world around us is largely shaped by the core principles we have accepted. Principles recognize what is true and help us apply truth to new or unknown situations. A good set of principles will enable us to make decisions quickly, even if our situation is completely new.
Principles Friday will help you share the principles of successful entrepreneurs, founders, and big thinkers.

Happy Friday Everyone,
Welcome to Principles Friday, where I share one principle that can help you in your life and business.
Today we have on the show Richard Feynman.
"you must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool."
What a strong principle.
Richard Feynman was an American physicist who made significant contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics. He was also known for his work in the field of particle physics, as well as his involvement in the investigation of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. Feynman was also an accomplished teacher and lecturer, and he wrote several books that popularized physics for a wider audience. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965 for his work in quantum electrodynamics. Feynman is widely regarded as one of the most brilliant and influential physicists of the 20th century.
We tend to have biases and assumptions that can cloud our judgment and lead us to believe things that aren't true. In other words, it's easy to deceive ourselves into thinking that we are right or that our beliefs are justified when in reality, they may not be.
Feynman believed that it was important to be aware of this tendency and to approach things with a critical and skeptical mindset, constantly questioning our own assumptions and seeking out evidence that supports or contradicts our beliefs. By doing so, we can avoid being led astray by our own biases and make better decisions based on objective facts and evidence.
Feynman's principle is a reminder that we should always be vigilant in our thinking and avoid the trap of self-deception. By acknowledging this fact, we can become more conscious of our thoughts and actions, and more open to feedback and constructive criticism. We can also adopt a more humble and curious mindset that values learning and growth. In both personal and professional contexts, this principle can help us avoid costly mistakes, improve our decision-making, and build more meaningful relationships. Ultimately, it encourages us to embrace a mindset of intellectual honesty and integrity.
That Concludes it for this Friday.
Remember"you must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool."
