@DrEricDing So important to take note of this. Confirmation bias led many to cite Sweden as a reason to not take pandemic precautions seriously.

The lesson: the fact that 1 country decides to ignore pandemic precautions does not mean we should use it as a model example.

One of the best investments you can make in your 20s, according to @profgalloway:

“The time to invest in your professional life is in your 20s and 30s. There is no work/life balance...
If you want to be professionally successful, massively invest in working your a%$ off.”
