Hey everyone, hope you all had a great weekend.
Here is last week’s Zoom on YouTube, where we talked about Donella Meadows’ essay Leverage Points. And this week’s essay is a continuation of her exploration with complex systems: Dancing With Systems.
My learnings are below, and, as always, the full notes are on [[Roam Research]].
Build the future, don't try and predict it
Value what's come before you
Test your mental models against reality
Trust your intuition more and your rational self less
Learn by trial and error
Information must be timely, accurate, and complete
You should have skin in the game
Think long term, always
Follow it, wherever it leads you
When engaged in anything, be alert, focussed, participate intensely, and respond to feedback
Allow yourself to be fooled by randomness
Shine light on the good, bury the bad
