In the Moment

Do you need to have an opinion on everything?

I, like many people have ideas and thoughts that pop into my head. 

I have decided to write down (the ones that are publishable and legal), so I don’t forget them and they may be of assistance to you.

I often today see and hear people expressing an opinion with little or no evidence to back it up, but delivered in a way as if it’s as plain as the nose on your face. I believe we live in a world where the rule is FIRE-AIM-READY.

Even more likely if the ammunition is a catchy four-word phrase (see ‘Does Your Handle have a Suitcase‘).

I am now trying to make sure I do some research on a topic before I comment or before I use a picture with a statement posted on my social media feed.

Solving problems using this FIRE-AIM-READY process is at best damn sheer luck, delays the eventual solution as you have to go through the process more than once.

It increases the chance of people becoming entrenched in their view as they have stated what will happen before they have looked at all the available information.

READY – collect and validate as much information as you can before you start.

AIM – revisit the target and make adjustments.

FIRE – take action needed.

Will this always work? No

Will the other way always fail? No

Does READY – AIM – FIRE increase the chances?
