Recommendation for leaders – “Find a creative space”.
It will change the way you think, feel, and make sense of the layers of complexity of your day-to-day existence.
This is my ‘anti-complicatedness’ strategy, particularly when facing highly ambiguous situations.
The often misguided goal of seeking ‘simplicity’ most likely results in default thinking – you find the right solution for the wrong problem.
A good starting point? Clear mind and a blank page of your favourite journal (moleskine), best pencil (blackwing) and just start writing, drawing, doodling, modeling, mapping etc.
