Welcome to Results and Relationships
Today some thoughts on data-driven illusions and how they can impact our lives.
With my 29 years of experience as a consultant in the data information analytics & cyber protection industry, I'm often been asked questions about data-driven decisions.
We also need to talk about cybersecurity and how to strategize around it. We often have to make decisions on outdated systems, which can be a challenge. This leads to a lot of compromises.
Even if you're starting a new project, you need to be mindful of the data-driven illusions and vulnerabilities involved. Dare to talk about what you don't know and take steps to protect your business outcomes.

Today I share an answer I did for a friend’s question on our Voxer group earlier today.
The “real-life part of me” so to say – where I don’t have the tension of the microphone, thinking out out loud and slow answering a friend’s prompt.
Whats my source of great results & healthy relationships and some answers on my thoughts on religious belief
before attaching it though, here is a summary of my audio that a third friend made for us, very slightly edited by myself for this podcast
* BELIEVE WHAT WORKS FOR YOU, work hard on letting go what doesn’t
* Stories are powerful, but Truth is never pure and easy.
* In our "narrative", we tend to simplify things to remove the more painful parts. We then choose our stories over Truth.
* YOU ARE THE SOURCE OF YOUR TIME, EFFORT, ENERGY, and your relationships.
Those around you dont get you angry. You choose you who surround yourself with after seeing their pattern. Then you made yourself angry all on your own.
* I don't see the world as it is, I see the world as I interpret it.
* "stories are my source."
* Anti – Thesis. Dare to explore both, without it it’s not really a choice, you're just blindsiding yourself fooling yourself you made a choice.

Probability & Meaningful Specific
Are you questioning how the three core components of probability, meaning, and specificity can be applied to the work you do?
Are you looking at how these three aspects drive your decisions, both intentionally and unintentionally? Are you taking the time to consider what the biggest impact of your work is, and how the probability, meaning, and specificity of your decisions will affect the outcome? Are you willing to put in the extra effort to ensure that you have the right focus and clarity to make the best decisions possible and accept the consequences - both good and bad - of those decisions?
Are you asking questions about above three in what you to those around you?
Are you asking yourself what goes into the heart or mind into whatever action, intentional or not from those around you based on this trio?
Take a minute and ask yourself on the biggest thing in your work right now.
* Focusing on Probability - what shifts?
* in the meaning beyond the work you do - or asked to do?
* The specific - do you dare to make it small and specific enough so you can take credit if it works, or responsibility if it doesnt?
Quite often its scary to put ourselves on the line like this, but if we do dare, we learn faster and thus help others better

machines are talking - are you listening?
I try to have these cast mostly timeless, and less timely but I’ve gotten so much machine-learning & AI questions lately and I thought I should share a perspective I don’t hear that often.
The thing I believe we underestimate is the “Explain like talking to a five year old” combined with the relentlessness of machines and scripts.
Now we can have our email to ten people be automatically rewritten in transport to the sugsegment of those groups. Perhaps this time it created three copies and sent the one most maching the communication profile of the recipient. This will be so effective since it can also help you follow-up “did it work” making each interaction more effective for both of you.
It can help you stay in tune with the workculture. Perhaps help you with your priorities for better effect and outcome at work by not letting you send late night messages, or if you believe you have to let them arrive at your co-workers desk in the morning. Again these tools exist, however machinelearning make you never forget to match whats effective and appreciated by each recipient.
Likewise if you go into Red Alert mode a la Star Trek, the machinelearning mod can temporarily overwrite that to instant say before a launch or similar, following up on the costs of doing so for you.
Be mindful of your use of them. Listen for what you are training them ON – its not just that you’re getting help, it’s a win-win-win where you don’t see the third party ever.

Embracing constraints can be a powerful tool to help us create better solutions. It is not the same as arguing for their limitations, which can be counterproductive and lead to stagnation. Instead, by understanding and accepting the boundaries of a situation, we are able to find creative and innovative solutions that can help us move forward. By accepting and understanding the limitations of a situation, we can challenge ourselves to come up with solutions that work within those limits, while still achieving the desired outcome.

You have way more minutes in your day to day life available to you that you thing.
Train a habit of start writing or adding to a project of your chose when you find yourself waiting for a meeting to start, or things are delayed and you have to wait. Instead of just "see what's new", give yourself the gift of having written a few sentence, made a notes on the next design etc or whatever you are creating.
Once you have a bigger block of time you have something to start from helping momentum alot.

its your job to position yourself where you have options that helps others AND yourself. Thats the path toward word that fulfil you and matters for people that care about having that work done.
Focusing on elevating others by creating better options, more options for others is one of the best ways.
More is not better than better. Better is better than more.
Why is More options important though? Because you dont always know what better for other people looks like.
more options also have the benefit of making space for opportunity to help others AND yourself.

Today however cyberspace lets you pull ideas for what better looks like everywhere
Help those around you create knowledge bases that others can pull from.
Help those you work with create remarkable space and a place to pull the work that matter for (Kanban or anything help focus and asyncronus value creator and doesnt expect contact switching like email or meetings just because someone has the status to push you into one instead of sending a memo of what matters)
Most work a knowledge worker does has a time-intervall to it.
Rarely does you instantly act on a book you read - instead you pull from the books wisdom when your work benefits from it.
Rarely does your urgent high-noise task mean important for the long-run. You need to learn to pull from both stacks of work.
As the work becomes smaller and more and more work is expected learning to pull forth the work that matter, and help others create assets and knowledge management that works for them becomes critical. if you dont set personal boundaries and allow people to push things onto your plate without filtering you will loose all the work that really matter longterm.
Work to see the pull and the push in your life. Help other see that dance and the tension between them.

Ideas on the line
Thoughts on ideas that I got wrong for most of my life is (and sometime still do)
* You need to put yourself on the line for experiminting outside of those. I kept wishing I would find this "big AND safe" idea on my safe side of the line.
* Distruptive and really great ideas never have guaranties, proof and deniability. Yet I find myself waiting for trying to find one that have at least one of that bad trio.
* if it was that simple someone would have done it already. Why do I still keep trying to find a simple one?
* I thought the idea had to be unique, new and fresh.
* Analytic's is not a guarantee for the future. Dare to make an assertion. work to figure out if its working and help those you serve see what you see.
* Leadership is NOT asking your team to give you X options and you choose the best one.

Become Better at what -
Your calendar and priorites tell a tale of your future
if most of your day is meetings you most likley will become better at sitting in meetings.
Ask yourself why you didnt send a memo instead. Clearer and saves everyone involved alot of time.
If not - whats that about and whats the skill there'in you want to become better at?
or the opposite.
Like Bruce lee said.
but just doing what youre told as programmer is NOT putting yourself on the line in making better stuff so what IS that think you want to learn to be better at in your elite code-skills
in agile we talk alot about Minumum Viable Product
Viable means its actually helping the client get to where they need to go, from where they are. Scrappy solutions are ok to start with but focus on the actual customer

in data definitions are everything and rarely do we take enough time to understand if we think the same about what goes into a value and what is NOT included into that value.
what has to be true in order for these to work
My thoughts are that
* a goal without commitment and a project is a dream. Important to have but not work or something you're putting yourself on the line for.
* a project without a goal is a hobbie. Important to have but you're unlikly to have an impact.
* Strategy without clear above points are just illusions and bad leadership.
Ask yourself. Who needs to see what you see in order to make change happen where it matters while there is still time to change direction of this ship? and who will thank you for bringing that tension onboard and who will not?

Create Results to Connect and elevate others For longlasting relationships
Embrace uncertainty for great results & healthy relationships.
Here we ask ourselves hard questions and embrace serious commitments. For a life with lots of fun play, long-lasting relationships, and legacy-worthy results.
Accepting Reality, Data, and that not everything matters.
Connecting, elevating, enrolling those who care.
Its spirals and circles.
Relationships are a gift we can not take for granted, none of us.
Results are something anyone can do independently of where we are on any kind of “ladder” we call can do, however small if we just choose to care. What small thing can you do today to help connect and elevate someone else?
Explore thyself, harness data. Dare to experiment. Evaluate accepting multiple axes for what better looks like.
Be kind to others, and yourself,
by putting yourself on the line for those who care

Embrace and set constraints - everything is a bag and has a category and pattern. Dont let your defaults rule fool you from making decisions early
Someone once said. Life is an empty bag and it's your job to fill it purposely and wisely.
For a long time I believed that meant to fill it richly, with great friends and work that really, honestly mattered to those I serve.
What I missed is that the choice where something belongs is a choice you make BEFORE choosing and creating space for the bag, not when it's too full for effective work or whatever the purpose of the bag is.
if you know what each bag is for, and its containers choosing to NOT move it to another bag instead of dealing with it is a lot easier once it gets fuller than ideal.
Not having made the choice early and trying to squeeze your favorite into a full bag is really really emotionally hard. Yet that's how I and most I know often do it.
Buying a new bag/storage isnt a long-term solution.

release freely and often. if your idea is all you've got you've got nothing. share it with those who need it and embrace reality.
if you have to lock in knowledge you're turning into a commodity. like the hackers in the 80th used to say. information want to be free
deliberately put time-blocks onto your calendar to practice with the intent to throw away
Do things early enough with margins to let go. create remarkable space for opportunity. put yourself in a position where your effort matters and get evaluated by those you want to help

Dont store - Create, Release, Reflect
So its set. This show will be renamed Results & Relationships.
Why? Im hoping to help you let go of what you make.
this show isnt just for me. The simpler name might help those its for. you.
Just like everything you create.
sure its important to have an intent, a purpose and an idea if what its for is working.
but your work will change, and who its really for will change as you learn more.
Going back to Results & Relationships.
Making a real big difference is alwawys a dance between multiple axises, multiple metrics es.
For example we steal from our selves.
write or market - instead of writting better.
write closedloop - a novel in the closet

Thinking we're doing the generous thing to have more details, habits, patterns for when we adress it.. yet often resulting in a big cost of delay or ourselves realizing to late that we're serving the wrong thing to long.

Owning your choice of context, your patterns and positions from which to serve.
Are you owning your choice of context?
Are you diving into your context to find the context within the context of what truly matter to those you seek to serve?

What do you rhyme with?
What does your work ryme with?
We live in a time where most want to "Predict the next big wave", "find The Key that unlocks it all" or that "The golden segment to distript industries". Chasing that dream of exponential growth.
Believing we see it everywhere. Not seeing the infinite amount of tries between the dots of success.
For most of us this results in a cost of delay, in procrastination lost in a waiting game. Doing something every day that you learn from is the most common story of those that have made it.
What do you ryme with? Often it helps me think of predictions like spirals or repeat cycles. Instead of trying to predict exacly what the future looks like its often more helpful to se the pace of small levelups around you.
Surround yourself with people that appreciate that you try to daily show up for what you believe in. To make a differerence for that next ryme. People who will happily let you borrow their work and learnings for that next experiment. People believing your effort will help you all versus being in a competition.

Do you see its many sides and shapes?
There is always many sides and shapes to everything that matter.
Do you intentionally surround yourself with people who are happy to accept that on the edge there isnt a one clear metric to rule them all?
Do you intentionally gather people who get energy, rest and clarity from being together?
Book recommendations in this cast:
* Cold Start problem and the double-edged sword of network effect. A book that came out today so I havent fully read it yet

Uncanny Sight: You saw something inside me that I didnt see until years later yet I wasnt ready when you named it and that made me nervous
Uncanny Sight: You saw something inside me that I didnt see until years later yet I wasnt ready when you named it and that made me nervous
Are you making people uncomfortable with what you see or does your lended sights give them freedom, energy or clarity to act for their own benefit?
Sometimes the people around you are not ready to connect to what you want to connect on.
Often that means you need to go first. To show trust by creating space for them first.

Relentless tests. Lessons and gifts are optional.
Relentless tests. Every second of your life, business & relationships.
Question is though. Are you taking the lessons that matter and letting go what doesnt belong so you learn between tests?
Instead of seeing goals and the long journey there. Embrace the hard obstacles right here right now. Help others move their for them, learning for yourself while doing it.
Instead of longing for a smooth journey towards the goal. Embrace that the "deeper downs" will teach you better & faster. So so how can you weave in rest time so you can go deep on a hard problem when helpful? You level up faster in positions like that versus the dream you have of smooth sailing
Who am I teaching right now?
Whats worth that extra care?
Who are worthy of that extra effort again and again?

About this eposide:
Since the 1990ths I have always created a few cyber communities where we have learned together. (On whatever voice platform made it most easy at the time)
This created a space where so many different age-groups, professions and walks of life met. Often and recurring working together creates remarkable spaces. One where we know during our day we have this "other" place where we can questions. Learn from others experiences or share when we feel vulnerable. On any topic from Life, business or anything.
I thus jumped into AltMBA number 4. Knowing already at #1 it was for me but I feared I wasnt worthy enough to be there so took a while before I dared. I have since been part of 30 akimbo workshops and a remarkable coach in a few. Because I believe in learning together. Helping each other see better together. Feel seen for what matters. So when my friend Özlem started her course on Maven.com A platform where I've also been part of a few great community based courses I thought we should talk about whats inside her creation for your benefit.
