“THINKING BIG COCKTAIL” FOR YOUR MIND.
Another great read to get a different perspective how business can rethink their business in the digital age.
The author David L. Rogers suggests that digital #mtransformation is not about technology but about strategy. So companies should rather put their resources in upgrading their strategic thinking in 5 areas:
1. Customers. They are dynamically connected and interacting in ways that are changing their relationships to business. Instead of mass markets, we see customer networks.
2. Competition. We are moving into more fluid industry boundaries where our biggest competitors may come from outside of our industry.
3. Data. Today it's being generated everywhere and becoming a vital part of almost every business operation.
4. Innovation. Digital technologies enable a different approach to innovation - through rapid experimentation instead of big-bet decisions.
5. Value. Traditionally value propositions were seen relatively constant whereas these days it's crucial to continuously seize emerging opportunities, divest where necessary and adapt early.
ABOUT OUR BRAINS. Understanding how your brains work and why you do things in a way you do is important not only in work, but for life in general.
In this post I'll present two different thinking modes + an exercise to practice.
Neuroscientists have been making profound advances in understanding the two different networks that the brain switches between:
>> focused mode (highly attentive state). It is when you concentrate on something that's already tightly connected in your mind, often because you are familiar and comfortable with the understanding concept. Your thoughts moves easily through the previously ingrained patterns and quickly settle on a solution. That's why sometimes it's so difficult to find a new creative solution to the problem you're solving.
>> diffuse mode (resting state). It is what happens when you relax your attention and just let your mind wander. This relaxation can allow different areas of the brain to hook up and return valuable insights, to see a "bigger picture". You can switch to a diffuse mode by going for a walk, doing meditation, yoga or simply watching something easy.
So these two modes are highly important for learning and solving problems. To find a new approach, you should first focus on a problem and then turn on a "big picture" diffuse mode.
And now you try! See whether you can form a new triangle that points down by moving only three circles. When you relax your mind, releasing your attention and focusing on nothing in particular, the solution can most easily come to you.
Let me know if it worked!
P.S. information was taken from the book "A mind for numbers" by Barbara Oakley. This is THE book that I highly recommend everyone to read.
I just got a sudden depression/anxiety attack recently, to point it got me thinking to myself: "why am I limiting myself for family?". That very question sparks my whole identity, as a son, a brother, and the boy who dreams big, but have to keep low profile.
My question to you: what made you feel you are free from shackles of family? How, and why?
