Ever believe in a better tomorrow? According to this version of Murphy's Law, you can never be sure whether your tomorrow will be better than today. Make the most of today; that's all that matters. Though there's a touch of pessimism here, this law teaches us to appreciate what we have instead of focusing on a better future.

Re: Same examples — truth. I do also think that even in standard examples you could find these principles at play if you got the full story.
Re: Relationships — depends how you label the axes. If you label for fulfillment, spending more time with fewer people is probably better. If you label for business stuff, loose ties probably matter more. But you can see it in the results.
This was super thought-provoking, Taylor. But, but you need to know, or know how to find your prime customers are. So who exactly is this article aimed at? This highlights a difficult truth… that the key factors for success really come down to grit, persistence, emotional resilience.
And the ability to stay the course and keep executing on high-upside-bounded-cost actions. That optimal mix of stick-to-it-ive-ness, delayed gratification, and flexibility to launch and complete many experiments, each with small chance of high upside. Great article, Taylor. The Pareto principle is something I am very familiar with and I heard about the fat tail application, though it is not something that I am thinking through and applying in business applications; it is definitely on the list now!

An answer to my own question came to mind. Murphy's Law ushered in the '90s with a reinvigorated blast of their debauchery-laced brand of comedic punk.
The band did dabble in skacore long before it exploded, but was always pretty much a flat-out hardcore unit in the '80s. The Best of Times finds Jimmy Gestapo and friends combining funk , reggae , ska , and hardcore into their own distinct brew, shedding any dogmatic restrictions applied to the standards of their genre in the '80s.
Covers of James Brown and Stevie Wonder provide some insight into Murphy's Law's sometimes controversial and misunderstood affiliation with the skinhead faction, finally putting to rest any allegations that racism or fascism have anything to do with the band's outlook. Although the group manages to shed this stereotype and expand musically on The Best of Times , the subject matter doesn't otherwise stray too far from earlier work.
Songs about pot, beer, girls, and cars showcase the glorious immaturity and quest for fun that pretty much define Murphy's Law. When the band does get serious, which isn't very often, it's in the interest of unity and friendship. The title track is basically a fan tribute , thanking a small but loyal group of followers for the support that's enabled Murphy's Law to continue the party.

The personnel differed from previous efforts, but Jimmy G's vocals still provide the sound's basis.
