          • Hypo 1 80% — I could have giv­en this more but the rea­son why I didn’t is I didn’t see the set­up on the TTF (my exper­i­men­tal setup)

          • Did a good job.

          • Con­firm­ing more and more how HTF pro­vides con­text for my TTF.
        • What’s one thing I need to do more often?
          • Be the scientist.
        • What’s one thing I need to do less often?
          • Doubt your­self. Stick to the plan. Loss­es are part of the plan. There is no certainty.
