Modeling is more fun when you have some confidence in your modeling assumptions. I’ve been working with models of physical systems lately and it’s been more enjoyable than the medical modeling I used to do.

I have more confidence that my results might reflect reality. I also have more confidence that if my results don’t reflect reality, I’ll find out.
