Techniques for FIT

  • Complex projects can go surprisingly overdue, but rarely finish surprisingly early. Why? Time only moves one direction, mistakes are inevitable, and always add time.
  • There's power in the pause. You don't have to use speed all the time. Take email for instance. Pause before responding or ask for time to respond. Go slow. 
  • You don't have to have an opinion on everything. Listen, ask questions, and move on. 
  • Back to emails. When responding, change the subject line. As a matter of fact, just read Bit Literacy, the best book on managing the inbox.  

Being Human - Flexible Plans

I have been thinking about plans and planning a lot lately. I ran into this quote from Jeff Bezos on the subject. 

"We are stubborn on vision. We are flexible on details…”

Some people are planners. They want to see the steps laid out. 

Other people are system oriented. They prefer to know the process.

To be more opportunistic, I submit that you need to be more interested in the process than the plan.  

Random Stuff

I scribble a lot. Especially when I'm trying to describe a concept. Over the years I've used Venn diagrams, double-axis charts and lots of arrows. To mix things up, I try out variations of my scribbles too. Triangles in stead of circles, various renderings of funnels. 

I was looking for an old email, scrolling from one search result to another and ran into this. 

easily misinterpreted scribble

I can't believe I sent that.
