I am the null hypothesis

The null hypothesis is immensely powerful. It doesn’t have to be proven, it just is.

You don’t have to explain why you’re using Word to write a report or Power Point to give a presentation. You don’t have to explain why you present at conferences or write for a journal. They are already accepted, they are the null.

Creative approaches are never the null.

Looking to reject the null? Join me, it’s my mission.

I am what is. The default, the status quo. The burden of proof is on the alternative. I am the null hypothesis.

    So apparently this kind of thing plays well on LinkedIn 🙂
    Would anyone like to comment? I love comments.
