I know many intelligent people who will look into a new idea or venture, and analyse the ABSOLUTE daylights out of it, trying to conjure up every single possibility and create a subsequent plan for each.
Surprising Downside of Being Smart
Jasky Singh

I disagree with this. I believe that a “smart” thing to do is to come up with all, or most, of the possible outcomes and look into their probabilities as, on average, there is no point in coming up with a plan D which is going to be applicable with 0.0001% probability. Taking it further, I think that a smart thing to do is to follow the engineering/sciences approach of analyzing uncertainties and making good approximations to move forward.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
