The gaps between theories and actions

Sometimes we may do someting is not very good or lack of rational thinking. I am sorry for that.

In CBE, we learned how to build LO;

In PIUSS, we learned how to improve processes;

In PEUSS, we learned  how to optimize processes;

In Leadership, we learned how to lead self;

In RDM, we learned how to make a robust decision;

In MOC, we learned how to responsive to change;

In KBAM, we lerned how to develop KBAM-based organizations to ahieve better perfromance;

But why actions are far behind theories ?

About decision making

I like RDM module and like system thinking approach.

I was thinking how I can make a decision if I met with some trap problems. In the real world, technological tools perhaps do not help us to make a decision in urgent situations. Because we have no time to find tools in our mind at that limited time. That is a big challenge for ones to make a decision in complex, stressful and urgent business organizations.

I read some blogs just now. I remembered several views about decision making, such as a gain perspective (from journal), an avoiding loss perspective (from journal), a technological view, critical view, personality view, etc. I am not to say these are right or wrong. All of them are right, because it depends on individuals' colorful glasses.

In business organizations, if a decision was based on a gain perspective, the result perhaps let decision makers down; if a decision was built upon avoiding loss, it is hard for decision makers to make a decision. It is because any decision has a risk, it is not necessary for ones to make a decision if without any risks. So what we do is to try to minimize loss and expect a gain result.

A technological view and critical view require a rational thinking process. But after these processes, how about situations are going on? ...Thus, we have to admit that the characteristics and personalities impact on decision making in the real world.

For me, I do not think all biases are bad. The system thinking approach is a holistic and flexible thinking process. It told us how to balance mind-set and heart-set, and then make a value-based decision. Everyone has different mind-set and heuristic method, I am happy to share my view.

Assuming ignore uniform motion situation. When the object and the direction of the force consistent, force will produce acceleration. Similarly, when two kinds of thinking are at the same direction, it will produce thinking acceleration. However, when two kinds of thinking are at the opposite direction, thinking will do slower movement. Is this good or bad ?...........No one object can do acceleration forever. Thus, it is inevitable to do slower movement because of opposite direction. But........should we resist this opposite direction or accept opposite direction?

Force and opposite  force are existed at the same time, the stronger force, the stronger resistance. How about thinking? Is it the stronger resistance , the stronger progress.........? Is it the similar principle ? or not ?.....I do not know now.

In the real world, why do people misunderstand each other during their communication ? Sometimes, people will feel that it is not easy to communicate with some ones, why this phenomenon exsit ? It is because of thinking refraction. When light from one medium to another medium, it occurs refraction. Whether is it the similar principle that when thinking from one person to another person will occur refraction ? That is why people misunderstand others or be misunderstood. 

Do not exist complete understanding. For example, when many individuals appreciate the same music, different people have different understandings and feelings about the same song or dance. Even if someone who is the artist's  best friend or wife or husband, their understanding still exist a little gap with the artist himself or herself. In other words, thinking will occur refraction duiring the communication. What ranges are the resonance areas?

Climate change & KBAM

Climate change & KBAM (knowledge-based asset management)

In today's class, we have an interesting discussion about whether the 'climate change exercise' should be moved away from KBAM module exercise. Yes, look at the words meaning, 'climate change' indeed have no linkage with KBAM.

In the real world, we are interested in asset management, because it is about money, money is about position, position is about control, control is about happy....Yes, if we can control, we feel happy. But it is only a short time happy, because no one likes to be controlled. In other words, the purpose of money is to control, yet the result of controlling is to be resisted or overthrown. That is to say, the asset management eventually leads to a failure if ones do not realize its surroundings. Thus, knowledge-based asset management approach is not enough, we need climate change exercise.

One reason is about the awareness of variation. The economic climate is changed so fast, at the same time it never changed. The variation of economic climate is the similar principle with the variation of  cloud. It is hard for us to control the cloud, thus we face and accept so fast weather changes. However, no matter how to change, its manifestations are wind, rain, thunder, snow, etc. It is the similar principle in economic climate. So that is why we say that economic climate is changed so fast as well as never change.

Another reason is about environment management. The environment around us is becoming worse nowadays, human beings realized this 'risk', but the worse situation still cannot be stopped. Similarly, asset management will bring with final 'failure' if we igore the environment (economic enviroment & climate enviroment) changes.

Actually, ecomomic environment and climate environment interact with one another. That's why we need climate change exercise in KBAM. This is not a knowledge learning, it is a awareness learning.

No absolute freedom

No absolute freedom!

Freedom is the most alluring word to human beings. People have been pursuing freedom all the time, but we have never free.

People cannot free to choose birth, parents, country and even education.

When we were a little child, can we free to choose our kindergarten?

When we were young, can we free to choose boy friend or girl friend? Of course, we can.

But does your boy friend or your girl friend also free to choose you?

When we become parents, can we free to choose whom we want to born?

When we go to work, can we free to choose the boss? Of course, we can.

But does the boss free to choose you?

When we have a project, can we free to choose the partners? Of course, we can.

But do the partners free to choose you?

When we leave away one day, can we free to choose the funeral?


Life from start to finish is not a freedom process. So people desire freedom, at least I desire freedom.

Philosophers pursue free will, but perhaps they ignore that the whole system and the whole life process itself are in a no absolute freedom system. so it is a pity that some of their work is useless.

People in the system that lack of freedom to pursue freedom called moderate freedom.

Moderate freedom is to pursue freedom in un-freedom crack.

People in the system that there is no freedom to pursue absolute freedom called faith.

Faith is to pursue absolute freedom so as to no freedom as well as no regret. 

In today¡¯s system there is no faith, so ones have no freedom, let alone absolute freedom.

Any wars are the tragedy lies as well as lies' tragedy.
