Processes vs. Outcomes

Note to future self…

It’s important to decouple the outcome of actions from the process that produced those actions. Sometimes you might play a perfect hand and still loose. Sometimes you can win and not really know why.

Takeaway

Optimize on the inputs that go into making a decision and don’t worry about the outcomes. Evaluate your processes and improve against that. Preferably focus on small improvement that compound over time through tight feedback loops.

Be methodical.

Avoid distractions.

The score will take care of itself.
