“Remember, always, that everything you know, and everything everyone knows, is only a model. Get your model out there where it can be viewed. Invite others to challenge your assumptions and add their own.” —Donella Meadows, 2008, Thinking in Systems: A Primer
“Faced with information overload, we have no alternative but pattern-recognition.” —Marshall McLuhan, 1969, Counterblast

1. Focus on outcomes fairly than time spent within the workplace.
2. Trust and empower your workers.
@benjaminokeefe — “There is no such thing as ‘unskilled labor’. All labor requires skills. It’s just that rich people only put value on certain skills in order to continue to keep down and lambast poor people at any opportunity.”
