A very big thanks to Miguel for sharing this checklist on his site! I encourage everyone to read it and, if you have any, give feedback to Miguel on the list.
As many of you know I’m very interested in problem solving and tinkering–below is a checklist I designed to help me pick problems (worth solving) & to disqualify problems (not worth solving). Many of you will notice influences from Paul Graham, Nassim Taleb, Atul Gawande, & Warren Buffett. This checklist is a work in progress and I’d love your feedback. Please let me know what you think. Enjoy!
