Control

Take control of the thought loop

Control of thought loops shape the world.

We are decision making machines, trying to balance avoiding what we fear and moving towards what we desire. Much of these decisions happens unconsciously.

The challenge is to take control of the thought loop by getting better at recognising triggers to overcome biases implement best practiced decisions to hold the critical path to success.

Always maintain perspective of what is most important

Take control of the thought loop

When you have a group of people that have well practiced OODA Loops for the right problems, then you have an elite team that can thrive in chaos.

If you invest heavily in a few smart people, you have a very small learning surface exposed: there is only so much even very bright people can learn at one time. Whereas when the entire team meets a certain standard for competence, there is a very large learning surface exposed and the team is able to absorb more information

Dashboards

Make decisions before loss causing situations arise. Good news takes care of itself.

  • Set decision triggers
  • Link triggers to processes
  • Link processes to people
  • Dashboards must tell a story
  • Worst first

Take care of the downside and the upside will take care of itself.
