"dignity points" means "having a positive impact".

if alignment is hard we need my plan. and it's still very likely alignment is hard.

and "alignment is hard" is a logical fact not indexical location, we don't get to save "those timelines".

i don't think that's how dignity points works.

for me, p(alignment hard) is still big enough that when weighing

  • p(alignment hard) × value of my work if alignment hard
  • p(alignment easy) × value of my work if alignment easy

it's still better to keep working on hard alignment (see my plan). that's where the dignity points are.

"shut up and multiply", one might say.
