The 1st vase is our expectations. The 2nd vase can sometimes be our reality. The mosaic is how we make sense of it all. How your mosaic turns out depends on how you handle the reality of your expectations. Handle it gently, but also handle it NOT as seriously as you think you need to. Your mosaic is turning out great so far, trust me.

An understanding of the difference between accurate, inaccurate, tight, and loose feedback loops.
A new interest in your own feedback loops and how to improve them.
A quote you’ll want to remember: “When quantifying things, people naturally focus on things that can easily be measured. Measuring the final result doesn’t provide enough quantitative data, so it’s tempting to include the data from intermediate steps. This is an attempt to shorten the feedback loop, and trying to shorten feedback loops is very dangerous in complex systems.” — Brian Lui
You’ll know the difference between scalable and non-scalable occupations.
Consumers tend to believe income sharing agreements may be the future.
May cause ideas around ISAs x human IPOs.
A quote you’ll want to remember: “In such a scenario, every career becomes a pyramid scheme. If you can attract enough people to buy your tokens, and they can attract enough people to buy even more tokens, the whole enterprise will continue to increase in value. This increase will happen regardless of how much revenue you can generate from doing your actual job. And it will continue until you run out of stories to tell, or until you run out of people to tell stories to.” — Dror Poleg
Will make you think about your free time differently.
You’ll know if you suffer from free-time paralysis (it’s quite common).
May cause you to embrace a lack of structure.
A quote you’ll want to remember: “Many people these days equate self-worth with achieving tasks and over-focus on being successful, which means that they have what is called conditional self-esteem. Such pressure can make people want to find the perfect answer as to what they should be doing in their free time. It is always harder to decide what to do when you have set yourself such a high bar – it usually just leads to analysis paralysis.” — Peter Klein
