Scarcity is a superpower

Morgan Housel, author of the excellent The Psychology of Moneywriting “a few rules”:

Being good at something doesn’t promise rewards. It doesn’t even promise a compliment. What’s rewarded in the world is scarcity, so what matters is what you can do that other people are bad at.

A corollary: Being good at doing (or even just willing to do) what other people don’t want to do can take you far.
