This is from an article that I found interesting, they talk about five different "Mind-sets" that belong together:

>> The REFLECTIVE Mind-Set – people need to stop and think and reflect on their experiences, because events or happenings the they may be involved in only become experience after they have been reflected upon thoughtfully. Reflection can be defined as the space between experience and explanation, where the mind makes the connections.

The Analytical Mind-Set - get beyond the mass of superficial and conventional analysis we are surrounded with and move towards appreciating how analysis works and its effect. Too often, shallow analysis leads to too obvious decisions. We need to go deeper and to recognise biases in our own thinking. This is then reflective analysis.

The Worldly Mind-Set<<< – I didn't understand that one, really. It seems to be about our relationship to the world, and that it is necessary to realize that the world can be quit variable. >>>The Collaborative Mind-Set – This is about is managing relationships between people. Whithout handling people as if they were things.

The Action Mind-Set - there is currently an over-emphasis on action at the expense of reflection. Furthermore, people are obsessed with change. Clearly, change is important, but it has no meaning without continuity – if everything is changing, all you have is anarchy. So the secret of the action mind-set is to mobilise energy around those things that need changing, whilst being careful to maintain the functioning rest. <<< I found this interesting, especially because it made me realize again that experience whithout reflection is a dangerous thing. So is change, if the background and direction is not well reflected beforehand Guess where this is from? ? . . . Harvard Business Review.

So how can we decide if we're not certain where to focus?

Do we need more experience? More reflection? More in depth analysis of our situation? Or if we should relly get into action and make a change?

For me it seems that change comes smoothly and whithout major effort, once I've got the reflection bit right. Sometimes to get this I need more experience, and sometimes I need a different kind of looking at things - better analysis.
