Look For the Right Information, Not Just More of It, to Make Better Decisions
Eric Barker stashed this in Diabolical Plans For World Domination
"The more you can improve the quality of the question you’re asking, the more you can focus on just the information you need to answer it."
"... we can make better decisions by spending more time honing in on the specific nature of our problem and filtering out the rest of the information, rather than trying to analyze everything. For example, rather than trying to figure out if you’re unhappy enough to quit your job, ask yourself what exactly you’re unhappy with."
It makes sense that being specific helps with decision making.
