Playing with Plots

🔑: Plots are a useful tool to visualise subtle differences in any concept.

  • How important is being ‘smart’?
  • How much do I need plans to succeed?
  • How confident should I be in my beliefs?

Question #1: How important is being ‘smart’?

  • ‘Intelligence’ is my raw, psychological horsepower. The aptitude I have for all those things that require my brain-o-matic deluxe. 😉
  • ‘Thoughtfulness’ is how I use my brain-o-matic deluxe. Whether I get it addicted to playing video games all day or whether I’m using it to learn, create, explore, reflect, and all the other ‘big-brain’ tasks.

🔑: It’s not my brain’s processing speed that matters, it’s HOW I use it😉

Question #2: How much do I need plans to succeed? 😤

  • Taking ownership to figure out what I want (and plan how to get there)
  • How rigidly I pursue my plan vs. how flexibly I adapt along the way

🔑: I don’t NEED a grand vision or plan to be successful.

🔑: Just stay open to learning! Regardless of whether I HAVE certain / uncertain evidence, I can TEST that evidence.
