HOW TO MAKE BETTER DECISIONS
Reading time: 1.10 mins
Tracking a wild animal is a complex form of problem-solving. It calls upon a refined set of skills and a particular way of thinking. It compels us to be conscious of the interconnectedness of all life.
I want to show you how, by adopting the mindset of a tracker, you can make high-quality decisions.
And, how it can be used to solve modern-day business problems.
Wildlife trackers operate in a wild and wordless environment – where information is often incomplete – and this causes uncertainty.
To overcome this, trackers consider three interrelated factors: 1. The track evidence. 2. The physical landscape 3. The animal itself.
Decisions are made by merging the facts and the wider environmental significance, together with the animal’s purpose. This allows them to create a mental picture of the activity around them.
But to be successful, the tracker must also adopt certain mindsets. They must become discerning, creative, and sensitive to the environment.
This is most important.
The ability to constantly be shifting one’s attention between the detail and the bigger picture. Zooming in, and zooming out, constantly – is key to finding whatever you are tracking.
As it turns out, the ancient artform of tracking represents a mental framework for holistic decision-making.
Worldwide, decision-making is becoming increasingly expedient.
I’d love to show you how this can be changed.
