We risk overfitting decision quality to outcome quality, by repeating errors which, thanks to luck, resulted in a good outcome, and avoiding good decisions that didn’t work out for the same reason.
Fooled by Randomness by Nassim Taleb comes to mind here.
Thanks for sharing this excellent article, Evelina. I've been a huge fan of asynchronous communication ever since I read 'Rework' by David Heinemeier Hansson and Jason Fried. I still haven't been able to go fully asynchronous despite working remotely for the past 6 months, however, my deep work sessions always seem to coincide with periods of asynchronous communication with my team.
