Approximately correct

If you wait for certainties, you will lose opportunities

Most of us seek certainties in our lives. But life doesn’t work that way. Even things that we assume are accurate are just approximations. Take flying as an example. There are indeed a lot of instruments guiding the pilot to fly with precision. But the time to reach a destination is an approximation. That is why it is called Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA).

If you want to be successful in life as a whole, then we should aim to be approximately correct rather than precisely wrong.

Can we train ourselves to be approximately correct? I think so. I layout three ways:

  • Learning from ancient traditions

  • Learning from trends

  • Developing multidisciplinary thinking
