Revelation

This is a quote from John R Boyd:

A loser is someone is someone —individual or group —who cannot build snowmobiles when facing uncertainty and unpredictable change;

Whereas,

A winner is someone —individual or group —who can build snowmobiles, and employ them in an appropriate fashion, when facing uncertainty and unpredictable change.

Yesterday’s match (FCB vs Chelsea: 2-2) reminded me of this.

Note: Boyd’s favorite example during speeches, was to have his audience build a mental “snowmobile” from what they can gather from the surroundings of the situation they are in, by decomposing other stuff to build it.
