The Compass Tradition

Our friends at Cook Ding Kitchen reminded us to follow good pragmatic traditions.

During the winter season, some of the group are currently practicing this tradition and other unique strategic customs that will enables them to hone their skills as a strategist.  ... One of the following weekends, some of the group will be re-reading some of the following books:
  • Against the Gods;
  • Dao De Jing;
  • The Protracted Game;
  • The Tao of Deception;
  • The Tao of Physics; 
  • The Romance of the Three Kingdoms; and
  • other unique strategic classics.
Here is an abridged list of the current "hot" books that we are reading:
  • Anti-Fragile 
  • The Signal and The Noise: Why So Many Predictions Fail- but Some Don't 
  • Turing's Cathedral: The Origins of the Digital Universe
For those who are audio listeners, we recommended the following:
The rest of us will also be working on our Tangible Vision and our Compass Script.

Read, reflect and adjust.  That is the sequence of a good strategic thinker.
