      Tinkering is a process of serendipity-seeking that does not just tolerate uncertainty and ambiguity, it requires it. When conditions for it are right, the result is a snowballing effect where pleasant surprises lead to more pleasant surprises.

      Stuck in a grind... and unsure what direction to take next? Perhaps it is better suited for us to tinker rather than laying out some grand goal..

      These are the 3 aspects Rao highlights in terms of what it takes to be successful at Tinkering.

      Immersion: in relevant streams of ideas, people and free capabilities.

      Experimentation: to uncover new possibilities through trial and error.

      Leverage: to double down on whatever works unexpectedly well.
