My Daily Thoughts


The More Input the Better the Output

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.
Robert H. Schuller

When making decisions, the more input we have related to the decision, the better the decision we will make.

This pertains equally to decisions being made by artificial intelligence. The more input the AI code can use for formulating decisions, the better those decisions are.

Start with general domain knowledge and then continue to specific facts and interpretations that pertain to the decision being made.

Models and frameworks help organize the information.

Weighted scoring frameworks can help quantify the different options for a decision.

Pro/con lists can help organize the overall result of the different options for a decision

Writing based on your future self reflecting back on the decision helps to fit the decision into your overall life.

Better decisions lead to a better life.
