Being Not Overwhelmed
If you work in Strategy, or are an Entrepreneur, or are dealing with complicated and compounding challenges (with high risks associated) I have a little mental model for you.
It's been helpful for me. It might prove to be helpful for you.
- Never assume something is either possible or impossible without real evaluation and analysis.
- The more you want something to be possible the more skeptical your analysis must be.
- Don't waste energy working on or regretting the impossible.
