Wishing Happy Birthday to Albert Einstein

Source: Wikipedia

Today is Albert Einstein birthday. He would have been 138.

So how does Albert Einstein fits into the Big Tangible Picture (BTP) of strategy? 

His "Big Picture Thinking" in the area of theoretical physics lead to the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics).  It also lead to a Nobel Prize 

Interestingly, many of his ideas started with something small. It then  slowly evolve into something big by experimenting it in the many specific realms of life.  Like most great thinkers, Einstein was seeking that absolute  "game-changer" idea that could positively explain the ultra specifics of life that affect our lives.   

Connecting to a Similar Situation 
To create or innovate a new idea, one starts with a base idea and slowly evolve it by connecting it to another similar idea that operates in a similar terrain.

This approach is similar to how Tesla operated.

“My method is different. I do not rush into actual work. When I get a new idea, I start at once building it up in my imagination, and make improvements and operate the device in my mind. When I have gone so far as to embody everything in my invention, every possible improvement I can think of, and when I see no fault anywhere, I put into concrete form the final product of my brain.” - Tesla

You do think like that.  ... Do you?

Final Thoughts
Regardless of the realm, good strategy is about comprehending the connectivity of the tactical particulars within one's terrain and the results from it before building the strategic plan that leads to one's projected goal.

Tomorrow is Pi Day

source (updated at 3.14.17,  6:28 am)

Pop culture is about the irrational exuberance by the unmindful masses, on some irrelevant subject matter that has a life cycle of a lemming.  A few people might look beyond the basic facade and discovered some glimmer of substance.  It is rare but possible.

A Note on Pi
So, how does  the Pi constant of  Pi Day connect to strategic thinking?

The uniqueness of  this specific math constant transcends time and space because it is found in a vast array of math and physics formulas.  

Because of its historical value  and its pertinent value to our setting, the nerds decided to give the Pi constant its own day.

Side note to the non-nerds: There is more to the Big Tangible Picture of strategy than organizational leadership,  tactics, resources, technology and operational strategy.

Math plays a part in every day of our lives.   It is used in predicting weather, time, money management.  Beside the apparent formulas and equations and the emphasis of rational logic,  math is a superb tool that can be used to solve many predictable and near-predictable problems.

In some instances, math is quite relevant in one's choice of tactics, and their overview of the strategy.

Connecting to the Bigger Picture
Before assessing the scope of the Big Tangible Picture strategically, the budding amateurs should learn how to estimate the scope of certain prevailing factors.  

Good strategists who usually comprehend the connectivity of the relevant (ultra-level) tactical specifics that play the important role in the configuration of their terrain and beyond.  (In some rare cases, these ultra-level tactical specifics could be a game changer in the impact of our lives. )


For some situation, the experienced strategist could use the configuration of the terrain into their strategy.  It helps to understand the math, the physics and the chemistry that operate within it. 

Side Notes  

Click here on how it is celebrated in Silicon Valley and click here on how some future engineers and scientists previously celebrate this day.  Then, click herehere,  here and here   on the other viewpoints of this event.   ...  Celebrate this day by baking a pie or buy a raspberry pi.

Fwiw, the hardcore nerds are more interested in the Tau day.

The Rise of Machines: Perspectives, Projections and Predicaments


Click here on one's specific perspective of the first five jobs that the robots will take.   Now, click here on another specific perspective of the last five jobs that the robots will take.  Finally, click here on the projected "life after the rise of the machines."

Regardless of the speculation, the robots would not be able to properly perform a job that requires strategic creativity.   

Through the process of strategic creativity, one could solve problems by knowing when to think inside the box and when to think outside of the box. 

The Process Model 
Knowing the quality of the information that connects to the current strategic situation is step one .
