Asymmetric Opportunities

Naval defines Asymmetric opportunities as opportunities which as one which the upside is not bounded but the downside is. The reverse is also true, there are some actions with limited upside but unlimited downside.

James Clear asked for examples of such asymmetric opportunities and Naval listed the following

Asymmetric opportunities:

Invest in startups
Start a company
Create a book, podcast, video
Create a (software) product
Go on many first dates
Go to a cocktail party
Read a Lindy book
Move to a big city
Buy Bitcoin

He wrote that list  in 2018.

The cool thing about asymmetric opportunity is once you see it you can’t unsee it.
