    Word of the day: Heuristic
    This means any approach to problem solving or self-discovery that employs a practical method that is not guaranteed to be optimal, perfect, or rational, but is nevertheless sufficient for reaching an immediate, short-term goal.
    I wanted to identify a heuristic way to be more courageous. But it turns out it's way more complicated than that. So you get an entire series. You're welcome. 😊
