The Decision Book: Models for Strategic Thinking

D9793361

It took me around one hour to walk around the bookstore before I decided to buy a book. A moment I walked along the aisle of bookshelf I found the series of books co-written by Mikael Krogerus and Roman Tschapperler. The Decision Book was the first publication of their series which consists of 8 books. Among them only the The Decision Book won the International Best Seller and I decided to buy it.

I’ve spent two weeks to complete this this books. Flipping from one page to another page, I was provided the profound messages with an easy and straightly explanation accompanied by graphics. This books provides instructions how to use this book and why should you read this book. This book is described by only six words – Simplify, Pragmatic, Sum up, Visual, Organize and Methods.

The Decision Book divides into four parts – How to improve yourself; How to understand yourself better; How to understand others better and How to improve other? The authors organized section chronologically ranging from self-organized to serving others.

This book was written in way that reader feel easy to understand. Sometimes  it makes the reader lost over the graphic explained. This book provides reader over 50 graphics which allow reader to have choices to work out on graphic which is applicable to their situations.

We make decisions every day. When it is overloaded, you will be easy getting fool in the juggle of problems. What we need is to structure them and to see through or get overview about them. Once our problems are structured, it is enable us to the solutions or to reduce the complexity of the situations.

I don’t say this book is perfectly written that allows us to deal with every situation that we are facing; however, it is a guiding light that help to pave our way and reduce the complexities of situations. And we should use other books and experiences to back up our model graphic in order to support our decision. It’s just a short review over this book.

I am going to write a review on the section of how to improve to yourself in the next post and provide some graphic which I believe it will help to get through some tough situation.

QUIET: When should act more extroverted than who you really are?

71NDnv8+hvL._SL1500_

I’ve skipped two parts of this book: Your Biology and Your Self? And Do All Cultures has Extrovert Idea? It is not strange that I skipped to part four. I’ll tell you what part four is talking about. But Firstly, I would like to acknowledge the author of this book Susan Cain who has spent years to work on this book. Quiet became the Sunday Times Bestseller and New York Time Bestseller. It was translated into over thirty languages. I wish this book was translated into Khmer language too.

“How to work and How to Love” is the title of part four. You may know why I skipped two parts of this to this part. One more thing, this part is somehow related to me. But this part distinguishes into many different sectors. I pick up only one section to write a review. And I am going to write about “When should act more extroverted than who you really are?”.

“When should you act more extroverted than who you really are?” author explains by raising case studies of two well-known figures Prof. Brian Little, former Harvard University psychology professor and Alex, a social adept head of financial services company. Professor Little was described as comedian. He always make joke to please his audiences. While in the class, his students described him as a standing ovation.

Alex is the one who described himself as mentally shy and sweet kid.

Both Prof. Little and Alex is a pretend-extroversion guy. They were wearing a mask of extrovert in public. What described them is completely different when we are going in depth into their personal life. Prof. Little lives with his wife in the remote area in Canada. He always spends his free time scoring the music, reading and writing books and emailing to his friends. Alex said he could literally go years without any friends except his kids and wife. He thought he was the same person who he was always was. He is massively shy, but compensate for it.

The questions were raised. How do they overcome the crowd and how they can cheer the public as if they are the extroverts? How can they lead the crowd? These are the surprised questions that audiences want to know how the introverts integrate themselves into the crowd while the characteristic is always quiets, shy and unsocialized.

The “Free Trait Theory” was developed to answer to these questions.

According to the theory people are born and culturally endowed with certain personality traits, but we can do out of character in the service of “core personal projects”. In other words, introverts are capable to act like extroverts for the sake of work they consider they are important, people they love, and many thing they highly value.

The free trait theory was applied to many different contexts, but specifically applicable to the introverts living under extroverts ideal.

Prof. Little was quoted as saying that “our life are dramatically enhanced when we are involved in core personal projects that we consider meaningful, manageable and not unduly stressful and that are supported by others.”

Reaching to this point you may be doubtful how can you identify your “core personal projects” that could lead you to act out of  your character? In order to find the answer you have to answer to these three questions. First of all, think back to what you do love to do when you are a child? Secondly, paying attention to the works that you gravitate to? And thirdly, pay attention to what you envy.

After answering these three questions, as an introvert you will find out what is your core personal projects that could lead to act as if you are the extroverts.

Authors explains that even when introverts could find their personal projects, they do not want to act it too much or too long. However, there is a solution for introverts who standout of character for so long. For instance, like Prof. Little who is an expert of pretending-extrovert always make a restroom in between his speech. It is the best to stay true to self. This call “Restorative Niche”. This term is referring to place where you go when you want to return to your true self. It can be a physical or mental places where you can find your true self. Why do the introverts need “Restorative Niche”? The answer is very short. While the introverts act out of character for so long it could be hazardous to their life psychologist said. The “Restorative Niche” is the best where introverts could find their true self while they are faking for so long.

That is it! However, I am one among the introverts. I think this article at least help you to explore yourself more. Being an introverts does not mean, you are a negative person. It is your character that you are always quiet. As long as you could figure out the core personal projects you will know who/what is worth to fight for.

Go to the book “Quiet” for more details.

My Review: The New Digital Age

new digital age

Today I spent 47 USD for two books at the only store in Cambodia selling the original books. It was the biggest day of year and the biggest gifts for myself. I rewarded myself to welcome the year of 2015. It begins with the two books. The New Digital Age, The Project Management(by Economist)

Technology is booming in this current decades. The rising of computer, smart phone, smart medical treatment, etc have been bringing up a dramatic change in individual, business, health, education, states, terrorist, revolution .

During decade of year 2000, the number of people who have connection with internet increased from 350 million to more than 2.5 billion. At the same time the number of mobile phone user have increased from 750 millions to over 5 billion. The number can imply that almost all people around have access to mobile phone.

The boom of technology communication changes the behavior of individuals, communities and counties.

This book divides into parts ranking from techno-geography to techno-politics.

The writers have shared their in-deep though towards how technology changes the political situation, educations sector, youth empowerment etc, by giving his experiences during the process of writing this book.

Personally, after reading this book, it provides a thought how the technology has changed the world and how you as an individual be ready to adopt to this fast growing sectors. Even you are a technology geeks, technology has already transformed you. Accept this changes and change in a positive way.
