The following question popped into my head. What is experience and how can you measure it fairly? 😕

Is it time in labor, or maybe it is the information you had, or maybe it’s the unexpected during the job as being experienced?

Then I was thinking, repeating tasks makes you faster on repetitive work, but what about creative or analytics?

How much time does it need to be invested to be optimal on a repetitive task? And the questions keep coming.

Then I asked myself. Is there any plausible way through controlled circumstances for a person to achieve the same experience level but with only 20% of the time?


What is experience? Here are my thoughts on it.

Starting with Einstein’s relativity theory in mind, we all experience time differently, and I ask you to follow me on the following exercise.

We have 2 people, the first time on the job, both of them. Let’s say they work as a Taxi driver, one in a rural town and one in the capital, they both work for 2 years, same job but can you consider them both to have the same experience and they would produce the same result if we take them both and change the city? The one in the capital has a higher chance of performing better.

Ask yourself, they both have 2 years, same job, same hours, same car, why is one better than the other?

In my point of view, the experience came from difficult moments during the job and solving issues that occurred. In the capital, it’s more likely to be more difficult, and more issues can be raised.

So far, so good. Let’s imagine now that we have a driver in a lab where we can control everything and we have the data from all around the world and a lot of drivers (that’s a lot of data).

Our objective is to get the driver at the same experience level as the one in the capital, starting with 0 experience but achieving it in 3-6 months in place of 2 years. Can we do it? Maybe it is theoretically plausible from my point of view.

How will we do it? Well, as the experience happens more during solving issues, those issues happen from time to time, not 8 hours a day every day. But what if they did? What would happen if we took the data, analyzed it, took out issues that would evolve our subject experience the most, and set them one after each other?

What will happen? For 8 hours a day, the same job schedule as the capital and rural subjects but he only has issues to solve that other drivers have encountered during their time, from modest frequency to less frequent and we do this for 6 months and hope that our subject won’t quit 😆.

What do you think will happen in this experiment?Untitled Design

A) He will perform less than the other two because it is in a controlled environment

B) He will perform as a normal driver with 6 months experience

C) He will perform better than the other subjects as he has more issues to solve and figure out

Let me know in the comments below!
