I’d be curious to hear more about what you did with this information once you had it.
The trouble with this information (and exercises of this type) is that you always had that information available to you, but never really on the one page laid out obviously. There is an insight to be gained in just being able to do that.
That doesn’t answer the question fully. This information helps to inform other tasks and processes for example in the “Try this” section of this post http://bearlamp.com.au/exploration-exploitation-problems/
The third thing it does is help defeat a s1/s2 incongruity. you System2 know that these are all the tasks you spend your time on, so in order to System1! change your mind on what you want to do in your time you inform your system 1 that there is no time that has sneakily “escaped” your view, fallen down the back of the couch, or somehow there is “more time” other than what you already have. This is what I consider the most powerful insight of this process.
This is hopefully also explained in the next post in the series—http://bearlamp.com.au/bargaining-trade-offs-in-your-brain/ (this paragraph was added to that post because I really liked the way I described it to you :) Thanks! )
Ok, that’s pretty cool. Thanks!
