Fantasy and Dynamic Programming

Wynter Bracken - "Torley on Piano"

Fantasizing is often looked down on

  • As distinct from day-dreaming
  • Attributed to mania
  • Unrealistic

… but, You can remedy some of these issues.

  • Start with the fantasy
  • Make it as realistic and engrosing as possible… Then in that Fantasy…
  • Rest on your laurels
  • Reflect
  • Reflect back onto how you came to be in such a position
  • Look at the recent path to your achievements with pride
  • Be especially proud of how you rose from humble beginnings

Dynamic-Programming comes in two parts

  • The search forward
  • The search backwards
  • Keep your goals achievable and realistic
  • Fantasy provides a simulated mechanism for the backward-search
