Rock, Paper, Scissors

Good systems have:

  • Diversity
  • Resilience

As an oversimplified example.

  • Rock always beats Scissors
  • Scissors always beats Paper
  • Paper always beats Rock

It’s resilient because there’s no way for the outcome to be any different.

But if you always throw Rock, you’re likely to lose a lot of games.

 

HAVING THE ABILITY TO MOVE BETWEEN OPTIONS WHEN FACED WITH DIFFICULTIES IS ESSENTIAL FOR SUCCESS.

 

You might face a problem and throw Rock because that’s the way it’s always been.

Maybe it’s time to throw Scissors at the problem and see what happens.

We don’t have control over what the other person is going to play, but we can evaluate the situation in front of us and throw differently.
