- I HAD DISCOVERED TWO MAIN TYPES OF USEFUL THOUGHTS:
1. Thinking about how you can solve the problems.
2. Understanding knowledge.
- A cognitive bias is a systematic thinking error that impacts, judgements, and therefore, our decisions.
- Maybe conclusions also a cognitive bias. Who knows?
What it comes down to do this: Avoid making based on the beliefs, obvious logic, and even science.
ASSUMPTIONS VS FACTS:
- opinions. 1. Research
- clichés. 2. Statistics.
- Imagination 3. Experiments.
- Beliefs. 4. Tested.
- Few questions are:
- Does your product solve the problem? Or do you assume it does?
- Are you able to raise money for your start-up? Or do you assume you will?
- Will you get raise? Or do you assume your boss will give it to you?
- Is the sale is done a deal? Or do you assume your client will sign?
- Do people like your art? Or do you assume they do?
- Save your energy for more useful things.
- NO MORE QUICK DECISIONS.
1. Shall we book a business trip to Thailand?
2. Are you interested in speaking gig at company X?
3. Should we renovate the kitchen?
4. Do you think we should fire John Doe?
5. How about hiring another sales executive?
- BE YOURSELF (NOT WHAT YOU SHOULD BE)
- Conquer yourself rather than the world. – Rene Descartes.
- I WOULD LIKE TO ASK FEW QUESTIONS:
- What are you good at?
- What are you bad at?
- How do you learn new things?
- What are you passionate about?
- What do you dislike?
- I journal and make sure to read my notes once a week. That’s all I mean when I talk about reflecting. I do it for three reasons:
- It helps me to uncover my mistakes, so I can avoid them in future.
- It helps me value my progress when I read my past achievements.
- To get my thoughts in order so I can second guess myself. That helps me to make better decisions.
