Ay, truly.

If I had my life to do over again, I’d probably just end up in the same exact spot. But I do fantasize about another path – like one in which I was captivated by some academic writing and became an economist or a scientist or a psychologist or something.
And in that other life, I got deeply entrenched in some curious corner of exploration and ran studies on human behavior or social groups or whatever and then I wrote fun books about it, like Sheena Iyengar, the Heath Brothers, the Freakonomics guys, Sendhil Mullainathan and Eldar Shafir.
And in that mythical other life, I live in a house with furniture and have bookshelves and friends over and go to the theatre for fun and I enjoy it.
