There are many ways to think, and thinking has been around as long as us humans have been around. But, has our thinking improved? I’m seeing hope in watching teams who are dedicated to LEAN and improved thinking. These teams are using KATA as a method to learn to think scientifically, differently, unemotionally. KATA is how to learn scientific thinking.
Ways To Think
There are many ways to think. The range spans quiet reflection to the imagination and even letting our minds wander. But, if thinking is what humans are able to do, and if we see ourselves as enlightened why is there such acrimony on youtube? It appears to me that we are thinking less. The lack of conversation, and so much yelling, it appears, at least to me, emotions dominate our thinking.

Laughing is healthy and this made me laugh today. The laugh you get is worth the word he chooses to laugh at.
ISMO, “I Didn’t Know Shit.”

A Conscious Choice
Recent projects I’ve undertaken have required a great deal of understanding cause and effect, planning, workflow, processes and putting to work LEAN. I searched what it means to be a “detail person.” Continue reading “Do You Prefer Cause or Effect?”
What does God promise you?
The Church beautifully offers daily readings, if you read the daily readings, over 3 years you read the entire Bible. In today’s readings, Saul’s faithfulness is rewarded not with profit, prosperous success, health, wealth, and security; no, today we read about the end of his life.
The promise of profit, prosperous, success, health, wealth, and security isn’t what Saul receives in the end. Being chosen, having God’s promise of life, belongs entirely to God. It is not for your benefit that he gave you life, it is for Continue reading “God’s Work”
Great Linkedin article on top 50.
Why this list of companies is better than other lists of upcoming companies? Because the data Linkedin has available makes for a more clear sense of reality. At least, that’s what they say.
I’m building the office back-room for a Start-up on my current project and I’ve done Start-ups before. It’s fun to see what’s possible.
My favorite companies and their industry disruption:
– Aryaka Networks, your Verizon and Comcast bills will go down.
– Pinterest, gone hightech is tackling machine learning and AI. I didn’t see that coming.
– GRAIL, Bio-technology with $1 Billion of Bill Gates’ money, that has to be on the list.
– CourseRA, providing education to get underemployed back in the game. Nice.
– Uptake, using sensor data to make decisions, this is coming age of internet connectivity, everything and everyone will be connected.
– Wish, direct access to product manufacturers (many in China), if Americans are the low cost consumers they’ve proven to be this will do well.
There were no healthcare disrupters, hmmmmm.
What companies are your favorite?
