Different thoughts for different times


AS WE ADVANCE deeper into the knowledge economy” — PFD

Tremendous challenges for: Government spending, Blockbuster, HP, Yahoo,
Proctor and Gamble, Nokia, Motorola, Xerox,
Blackberry, Sony, Panasonic, Kodak,
and many of the In Search Of Excellence Companies

Plus lots of individuals




Navigating first requires finding “things”
to work toward — direction

The “finding” first requires exploration

Exploration includes new Exposure
which includes
fresh insights
from repeated exploration.

“To know something,
to really understand something important,
one must look at it from sixteen different angles.

People are perceptually slow,
and there is no shortcut to understanding;
it takes a great deal of time.” read more

But precisely because there are so many different areas of importance,
the day-by-day method of management
is inadequate
even in the smallest and simplest business.

Because deterioration is what happens normally—that is,
unless somebody counteracts it—there is need for
a systematic and purposeful program.

There is need to reduce the almost limitless possible tasks
to a manageable number.

There is need to concentrate scarce resources
on the greatest opportunities and results.

There is need to do the few right things
and do them with excellence.

Managing for Results by Peter Drucker

“But tomorrow always arrives.

It is always different.

And then even the mightiest company is in trouble
if it has not worked on the future
.

It will have lost distinction and leadership—all that will remain
is big-company overhead.

It will neither control nor understand what is happening.

Not having dared to take the risk of making the new happen,
it perforce took the much greater risk
of being surprised by what did happen.

And this is a risk that even the largest and richest organization
cannot afford and that even the smallest one need not run.”

We can only work on and with the things on our mental radar

road ahead

Imagine the outcomes for somebody in
1950, 1970, 1990, 2005
devoting all their energy to
what existed at the time or
what was on their mental radar at the time

It is a very uneven and unpredictable landscape

When we are embedded in doing something
we are blind to the changing world around us

The human brain has no natural way to bring itself
to focus on the real tomorrowS that will emerge.

Even when it tries,
yesterday wants to prevail


When the time comes to think beyond the immediate
what mental radar content will be available?

When is the when?


The site provides a big picture thinking landscape over time

It is a way to see and work beyond current mental involvements

This is essential for navigating a changing world

The site is a tool for creating a work menu and considering what’s next


How do we keep our brain focused on the road ahead and
what’s next without it naturally slipping back into the normal
daily flow of events that eventually lead to dead ends?

Career work plan development



Technology is changing very quickly, as are markets and structures.

You can’t design your life around a temporary organization.”

Successful careers are not planned

They develop when people are prepared
for opportunities
because they know
their strengths,
their method of work, and
their values.

Knowing where one belongs
can transform an ordinary person
—hardworking and competent but otherwise mediocre—
into an outstanding performer.

rlaexp.com’s purpose is to provide a big picture thinking landscape for navigating our changing world — a world in profound transition.

There are 500+ pages inter-weaving management, leadership, organization evolution, the evolving content and structure of society, knowledge, technology, career evolution, education, learning, marketing, production, innovation, entrepreneurship, thinking, software tools, information challenges, concepts to daily action … through time. Any time someone is engaged in decision thinking they need a “foundation for future directed decisions.” ©

rlaexp.com is largely inspired by the work of Peter Drucker and a few others.

The site provides a “menu” for identifying important “things” to work toward that largely go unseen.

We can only work on, with and toward the “things” on our active “mental radar.”

In a changing world, we need a way to repeatedly look beyond current mental involvements.

We need a way to think about things we aren’t already thinking about at multiple points in time. Waiting for a crisis is one way to accomplish this, but surely there are better ways.

rlaexp.com’s uniquely broad landscape is designed to meet this challenge.

TomorrowS can’t be reached by today’s activities or thinking. Examples constantly flow through the news.

Who in 1950, 1970, 1990, 2000 … had an adequate future facing radar?

Why would today be any different?

Where and how we spend our time matters — a world in constant flux.

 


 

I’m trying to provide this exploration and thinking landscape to help people figure out what to do as we move deeper into the 21st century: a knowledge society, a society of organizations, and a network society.

 

America’s future depends on this awareness, ability and effective action.

It depends on younger generations having access to this dynamic type thinking and doing something effective. rlaexp.com provides the access and a work approach model.

Just about everybody enters the world of work through known, routine, day-to-day operating work at a point in time. It never seems to occur to nearly anybody that there could be anything else. How could we ever acquire a strategic, dynamic worldview from our beginning vantage points?

Pretending that tomorrow is going to be like yesterday is damaging.

 

Everybody has a vested interest in this.

 

For the site to remain available your support is needed. Your support helps with the books, software, web site hosting, and the time devoted to publicizing and enhancing the work approach available on rlaexp.com.

Who do you know that might be interested in working with me on spreading site usage and enhancement?

At the present time this is a prototype site. I add, remove, and redesign content based on my own unfolding comprehension of the time-life navigation © (TLN) landscape. I've been collecting and organizing information for over thirty years. New landscape features periodically emerge and existing features get reshaped — e.g. how we take, share, and manage photos. This means that you might want to periodically revisit relevant pages.

Many of the books that were available when I first started working on what I now call “time-life navigation” have gone out of print or are hard to find. You can still use the content of the book outline pages to identify topics of interest and to search Amazon Booksxxx for topics or phrases.
