Are You Thinking Like a Sat Nav?
I expect you’ve noticed that when you follow the directions on a Sat Nav you don’t always arrive where you wanted to arrive. You may end up turning down narrow lanes or even going around in circles however sometimes you may go straight to your desired destination. Having nearly driven into in a river 2 days ago in Somerset, I can really resonate with this!
In this week’s Prescription for Success we’re going to explore the metaphor – Are You Thinking Like a Sat Nav?
Narrow Lanes – Dead Ends – Going around in circles – We’ve all been there!
The Sat Nav can take us down those narrow lanes, down dead ends or even around in circles but why does this happen?
It may be that you haven’t been specific enough with the detail you’ve put into the Sat Nav. You may not have chosen the most appropriate options, for example, the fastest route or the most direct route or even the route that avoids traffic.
Another scenario could be that you become distracted, decide to take a detour and perhaps stop for lunch without saving your destination information into the Sat Nav.
Alternatively you may not really know where you are going.
I know some people like to think about the detail first whereas others may want to know their destination and the big picture first. If you’ve got no idea where you are going then maybe that’s the reason, but does that work for you? Do you really need to know your destination, the postcode etc. How much detail do you need? How are you going to deal with distractions that keep you from your destination?
It’s just a short metaphor to have a think about and have some fun.
