#Assumption #Guess: 2015-08-21
Assumptions and guesses are a necessary shorthand that we use when we don’t have access to sufficient information or facts.
The mistake made when using assumptions and guesses is in treating them as information or facts instead of as theories to be tested.
Assumptions and guesses are not the problem, they are necessary and practical tools when used with an understanding their limitations.
How you use and understand assumptions and guesses will determine if your assumptions and guesses are helpful or harmful.
It is this author’s assumption and guess that you can understand the difference between misusing something and your misuse causing problems and something being inherently a problem no matter how you use it.
