Hey everybody. I liked this quote from last week:
“If I had to live my life again, I’d make the same mistakes, only sooner.” - Tallulah Bankhead
But making mistakes sooner is a sure-fire tactic towards growth, surprisingly. You’ve got to experiment, recognise mistakes and learn.
Some problems aren’t immediately obvious. Talking to Daniel Stillman last week, we started talking about Abstraction Laddering
. It sounds complicated, but it’s a way to recognise problems. Daniel describes like this:
The right question is always about finding the dynamic tension between the giant, abstract goals (notice the $$ at the top of the diagram?) and the nitty gritty approaches to the problem. How far into the weeds are we going? Is this meeting about giant goals or detailed actions?
Thank you for reading this issue,
