About My Process

  • “Nature tends to favor rapidly iterative processes”
  • “Luck is when preparation meets opportunity” so obsess over preparation to increase your luck surface area.
  • “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” and there is no excuse for an absence of backups, insurance, and auxiliary systems.
  • “Most of the world will make decisions by either guessing or using their gut. They will be either lucky or wrong”, so collect, analyze, and act upon your data.
