Today I share an answer I did for a friend’s question on our Voxer group earlier today.
The “real-life part of me” so to say – where I don’t have the tension of the microphone, thinking out out loud and slow answering a friend’s prompt.
Whats my source of great results & healthy relationships and some answers on my thoughts on religious belief
before attaching it though, here is a summary of my audio that a third friend made for us, very slightly edited by myself for this podcast
* BELIEVE WHAT WORKS FOR YOU, work hard on letting go what doesn’t
* Stories are powerful, but Truth is never pure and easy.
* In our "narrative", we tend to simplify things to remove the more painful parts. We then choose our stories over Truth.
* YOU ARE THE SOURCE OF YOUR TIME, EFFORT, ENERGY, and your relationships.
Those around you dont get you angry. You choose you who surround yourself with after seeing their pattern. Then you made yourself angry all on your own.
* I don't see the world as it is, I see the world as I interpret it.
* "stories are my source."
* Anti – Thesis. Dare to explore both, without it it’s not really a choice, you're just blindsiding yourself fooling yourself you made a choice.
Big credits to this great book for much of the thoughts in this episode

Probability & Meaningful Specific
Are you questioning how the three core components of probability, meaning, and specificity can be applied to the work you do?
Are you looking at how these three aspects drive your decisions, both intentionally and unintentionally? Are you taking the time to consider what the biggest impact of your work is, and how the probability, meaning, and specificity of your decisions will affect the outcome? Are you willing to put in the extra effort to ensure that you have the right focus and clarity to make the best decisions possible and accept the consequences - both good and bad - of those decisions?
Are you asking questions about above three in what you to those around you?
Are you asking yourself what goes into the heart or mind into whatever action, intentional or not from those around you based on this trio?
Take a minute and ask yourself on the biggest thing in your work right now.
* Focusing on Probability - what shifts?
* in the meaning beyond the work you do - or asked to do?
* The specific - do you dare to make it small and specific enough so you can take credit if it works, or responsibility if it doesnt?
Quite often its scary to put ourselves on the line like this, but if we do dare, we learn faster and thus help others better

machines are talking - are you listening?
I try to have these cast mostly timeless, and less timely but I’ve gotten so much machine-learning & AI questions lately and I thought I should share a perspective I don’t hear that often.
The thing I believe we underestimate is the “Explain like talking to a five year old” combined with the relentlessness of machines and scripts.
Now we can have our email to ten people be automatically rewritten in transport to the sugsegment of those groups. Perhaps this time it created three copies and sent the one most maching the communication profile of the recipient. This will be so effective since it can also help you follow-up “did it work” making each interaction more effective for both of you.
It can help you stay in tune with the workculture. Perhaps help you with your priorities for better effect and outcome at work by not letting you send late night messages, or if you believe you have to let them arrive at your co-workers desk in the morning. Again these tools exist, however machinelearning make you never forget to match whats effective and appreciated by each recipient.
Likewise if you go into Red Alert mode a la Star Trek, the machinelearning mod can temporarily overwrite that to instant say before a launch or similar, following up on the costs of doing so for you.
Be mindful of your use of them. Listen for what you are training them ON – its not just that you’re getting help, it’s a win-win-win where you don’t see the third party ever.

Embracing constraints can be a powerful tool to help us create better solutions. It is not the same as arguing for their limitations, which can be counterproductive and lead to stagnation. Instead, by understanding and accepting the boundaries of a situation, we are able to find creative and innovative solutions that can help us move forward. By accepting and understanding the limitations of a situation, we can challenge ourselves to come up with solutions that work within those limits, while still achieving the desired outcome.
