# Conclusion

Reflect on optimization, what we’ve learned, and what’s left to learn.

## We'll cover the following

We’ve reached the end of the course, but what has been the most important thing we learned? Maybe the algorithms? The optimization theory? The Python libraries?

## The optimization mindset

Of course, that’s all amazing knowledge that opens doors for us and allows us to solve a wide variety of problems. But the most important thing we learned is the optimization mindset. This is by far the greatest knowledge we can extract from this course: the ability to observe the reality around us and view optimization problems solved or unsolved in rich detail, and the ability to express problems of real life as optimization problems that can be solved with the methods we learned in this course.

This ability is a gift that allows us to understand our reality better and solve problems from a much better perspective. This is, over any algorithm or library, the ability that allows us to solve problems that others can’t solve.
