The Rabbit Hole is written by me, Blas Moros.
My goal is to learn, grow, and every day become a slightly better version of who I was yesterday. I’m attempting this by consuming a broad array of books, articles, and other resources, by meeting interesting people, by exposing myself to new experiences, and by taking on a variety of different monthly challenges.
After graduating from Notre Dame, I decided to spend the extra 4ish hours I now had (after “retiring” from tennis) on doing the most useful and exciting things I could think of. As much as possible, I try to set up my life so that I am always effortlessly enthused about what I am reading, learning, doing, and, most importantly, who I am spending time with. This mostly removes discipline and will-power from the equation since I am doing things which I like so much that I don’t have to force myself to do it. I have found this to be a great life philosophy and it has helped me learn quickly without it ever feeling like “work.”
I have named my site The Rabbit Hole because that is how I would characterize my learning experience so far – following whatever piques my interest, balancing exploration and exploitation. I have set up this site to help keep me accountable and (hopefully) offer some insights and inspiration by distilling what has been helpful to me.
If you are looking for a place to start, I’d recommend my teacher’s reference guides, essays, or books worth re-reading. In addition, the following are some of my most popular rabbit holes on various topics from Complexity to Disney to Paul Graham to Platforms to The Path of Least Resistance.
If any of this resonates with you and you’d like to learn more and stay up to date, consider signing up for the monthly newsletter which summarizes the books, challenges and other things I found interesting and valuable that month.
Amor Fati Amor.
