Tighten the feedback loop

Learn faster by shortening the cycle of implementing ideas in reality. You can’t think yourself into being better at an activity. It is in deliberate practice where you’ll improve.

The first principle is that you must not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool. — Richard Feynman

It is in the doing that we become aware of our assumptions. If you do nothing, you can fool yourself into comfort. The comfort is in not having to change or accept new realities.

Each untested idea is an assumption. Let your ideas encounter reality sooner rather than later. The longer you wait the more events occur with these blind spots in your logic.

A plan is an idea for the future. To plan for the future is to make assumptions about that future. Assuming the future will always involve change we should make plans that change.

Embracing constant change means striving to be less wrong. Errors in judgement will happen if progress is being made. Risk management taken too far defaults to stasis.

For every new task or process you must close the loop for the first time. Want to adopt a running habit? Run. Want to start a journal habit? Write. Reality will reward you with new information to make the journey easier.
