I Doubt, Therefore I Exist

My main intellectual tool is “doubt”.

I’ve been trained in “doubting”. I have a master degree in philosophy, before taking my professional master in information systems.

Doubt is the most essential tool that help me deliver the best results in my work and keep my head clean.

Those who had worked with me would tell I have a “diesel” mind. It starts slow, but I’m unbeatable once my brain heated up.

The way my brain heat up is as follow:
1. I always start any work with the attitude “I don’t know.”
2. Then I look for “what others know” about the issue or work at hand.
3. Then, I distrust systematically “how” others reached their conclusion.
4. Then I document the “context” of the issue at hand.
5. Only then, I’d start looking for paths to solutions.

The heating is accelerated 100 times if there are people smarter than myself in the room.

The whole process is helped by knowing how to look.
