Six Step Framework to Solve Problems

This article of entrepreneur.com describes a simple framework for solving problems which apparently the infamous Elon Musk uses. It’s actually quite simple  and easy to summarize:

  2. Collect evidence and information
  3. Develop a hypotheses based on the evidence and assign a probability for it
