Models and “maps” as guides to thinking
In the OD network on LinkedIn a question was asked “What models have you found to be effective?”
my thoughts were:
Models are maps.
I once used a map to help navigate an unfamiliar territory.
At different times the map was alternately more and less helpful.
It’s good to know the uses and limits of maps.
It’s interesting to be a map-maker.
It’s good to know how good is the map is
It’s good to learn to judge the opinions of others about maps
I trust the maps of trustworthy scouts
Don’t forget to look where you going while you consult the map
You might want to look around first before you consult the map
You might want to look around AND consult the map before you start walking
If being tracked by wolves, you better not consult the map for too long
You either have to go to unfamiliar places or wait for the world to bring you what you need
