Love a good question!
Three (Incredibly Simple) Questions The Most Successful People Use To Change The World – Forbes:
outlines three great questions:
1. What’s the outcome I want?
2. What stands in my way?
3. Who has figured it out already?
The author, Mike Maddock has a lovely term: “parallel engineering”, or in his own words:
“[Step 3] is where some leaders spring into action while others pause to steal ideas. Yes, I wrote steal ideas. But since stealing is a politically incorrect term, we’ll call their strategy parallel engineering.”
Good luck with it!
