In This Episode We Discuss

  • What is science meant to be? What is science pragmatically?
  • “Science doesn’t prove anything it just reduces uncertainty”
  • If you want to know something better, it takes concentrated cognitive effort and thinking. Wrestle with difficult ideas. Don’t just consume
  • What information do you have that you can collect, how does that inform your mental model? And how do you test that model
  • Crucially, how do you disprove that model?
  • Application: explicit vs. tacit knowledge. (Tacit = coach intuition)
  • Adding that knowledge to a larger body of evidence
  • You don’t identified as your views, but as the being that has certain views that are subject to change
  • Far important how you think than what you think
