Avoid premature optimization

When facing a problem we tend to generalize so we can approach the problem at a systemic level. We do this when building products but also in how we conduct our lives. However, it's mostly premature:

  • Abstraction is a form of optimization and should not be done before the space has been properly explored.Β 
  • Standardization is also optimization and should be avoided until there is enough evidence to support the standardization.Β

Interrogative over leading questions

A leading question inquires about whether the other person agrees or not with a statement. Interrogative ones start with what, why, when, who, where.Β 

"Did you like the song?" (leading) vs "What did you think about the song?" (interrogative).Β 

A leading question is more emotionally charged and low in information. It leads to .... worse engagements.

Lincoln once said: "I hate that man. I must get to know him better"

Instead of using your initial instincts about a person to guide your future interactions, use curiosity. Seek to know them better.

News is entertainment

We think that being in the know is important for us personally. And that it's also a duty of a well-informed, responsible citizen.Β 

You can better understand the world if you cut the news. News is rarely as important as they seem and act as addictive drugs, giving us dopamine hits all the time.Β

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
