The Untold Edition — On Uncertainty

The Untold Edition — On Uncertainty

There have been many (too many?) blogposts on this subject. The reason, I think, is the high degree of uncertainty regarding this particular step. You could say this project was like scaling a wall. And at every point of fatigue, I basically felt like I should just let go. So it was a struggle to not quit and keep moving upwards.

But often what happens is that when we finally arrive at our destination we lose the path that led us there. So, in order to avoid losing that train of thought I am creating this ongoing brainstorming post where I will keep updating findings.
