A lot has been made about Dan Kahnelman’s book “Fast and Slow Thinking”. And rightfully so. Dan explains how the brain works in parallel dimensions. He also explains how we need to use our intuitive side (the fast side) even though it gets things wrong. The trick, of course, is to educate our intuition over time.
That is what strategic thinking does. One aspect of this education is to sensitize yourself if you are on the path. This story about Larry Page at Google gives you a sense of what I am talking about.
So, are you on the path? If you are not sure, let me know with a comment. I am ready to chat.
