Work Principle

When judging people, remember that you don't have to get to the point of "beyond a shadow of a doubt."

Perfect understanding isn’t possible; trying to get to it wastes time and stalls progress. Instead, work toward developing a mutually agreed-upon, by-and-large understanding of what someone is like that has a high level of confidence behind it. When necessary, take the time to enrich this understanding.
