Operating Principles

Don't be religious about tech.
Product is more important than individual blocks of code.
Not worth the time to go from 98% efficiency to 99%.
If you can't explain your product to your grandmother, you don't understand it well enough.
Think in functions. Not equations. They aren't always the same.
Model your mind with predictive synthesis. Not emotional references.
