Gathering intelligence is not the same as having the wisdom and capability to do the right thing at right time.
Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom - Viktor Frankl
Optimise collective decision making to play positive sum games.
Where to? What next? What if every decision you made was the optimum one?
- Where would you be in your life now?
- How would you convince others to follow you?
- What would be the impact of greater alignment of collective intent?
- How can we collectively understand and commit to complex decisions?
- In the act of deciding to what extent do already create the future?
- Why go to outer space before we understand inner space?
What decisions lead to sustained optimal flow of fairly distributed value creation?
Solve problems from first principles to maximize opportunity for value creation while minimizing waste.
The optimal state of inner experience is one in which there is order in consciousness. This happens when psychic energy - attention - is invested in realistic goals, and when skills match the opportunities for action. The pursuit of a goal brings order in awareness because a person must concentrate attention on the task at hand and momentarily forget everything else. These periods of struggling to overcome obstacles are what people find to be the most enjoyable times of their lives. A person who has achieved control over psychic energy - attention - and has invested it in consciously chosen goals cannot help but grow into a more complex being. By stretching skills, by reaching toward higher challenges, such a person becomes an increasingly extraordinary individual. - Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
