Breaking things down

Breaking things down

2021-08-0220:33

In today’s episode we talk about the little big things and the concept of breaking things down. Remember to break things down at their natural boundaries. Nature teaches us the need for creating systems that function as a unit to make the whole. Almost everything is made up of smaller sub-units. If you don’t have experience on best practices and approaches, research and adopt a pre-existing approach, with time, you can then make modifications on this approach based on your own unique experience.

Liddell Hart after World War I. It was an attempt to find a solution to the problem of high casualty rates in conflict zones.

In this episode we talk all about how to stay focus and make yourself anti-fragile. As part of the innovations we engage in, we have to figure out the threats we face and where we fit in the regulatory space. We need to learn the right lessons and work to become anti-fragile. We can’t bring about meaningful change by screaming our discontent from the side-lines. No change in a system can occur without help from insiders in the system. We need to be actively involved. Regulatory Decisions will always be made and if we do not work to get representation in spaces where decisions are being made, we will become victims of the decisions made in these regulatory spaces.

Today we focus on mentorships; the what, when and how. Regardless of the medium you choose to give back with, you must first have something of value to give. No one is under compulsion to be a mentor, there is no commandment anywhere that you must mentor people, but if do mentor others, your motives should not be ulterior. For mentees, the willingness to learn and ability to sit down and do the work is important. Mentorship is not a shortcut or an escape hatch. You have to be a self-starter too. Create structures and systems around your mentor/mentee relationship. There should be agreed date and time.

Today we explore and talk about distraction what it is, how to manage it and ways to direct your focus.

From learning from what happened in the year, it is less expensive and most effective to learn from what happened to others. Life is like a school, and its lessons are often dressed up in our circumstances; the challenges, our failures and victories.

The Either-Or Fallacy

The Either-Or Fallacy

2020-12-1427:07

In today’s episode we focus on the Either-or Fallacy, also known as false dilemma or false dichotomy. This is a type of logical false belief where a said situation has only a limited number of alternatives. But in reality, it can have more. For context, the thought behind settling for today's episode is coming from a place of frustration at the number of hot takes and opinionated postulations by some industry gate-keepers. The intentions might be good but the resultant effect can be misleading. For example someone speaks from a place of personal experience, without acknowledging the fact that; as rich as their personal experience, it does not cover the full range of possibilities available.
