“We have so many metrics . . . and the thing I have noticed is that when the anecdotes and the data disagree, the anecdotes are usually right. There’s something wrong with the way you’re measuring.”
Sometimes we just need to stay away from probability theory and complex parameters and LET OURSELVES THINK!
Trust your instincts, your knowledge, what you see and make good use of that!
We are in an uncertain world, we need to make it simple in order to make good decisions!
Gut feelings are based on lots of experience and all kinds of unconscious forms on intelligence.
We're dealing with an uncertain world, big data can provide an illusion of certainty and lead us to wrong expensive decisions.
