Knowledge Management: situation awareness
What- It was a surprised to me that "situation awareness" is a very interesting topic to study and a big issue in our world. I did not realise that this topic could be turned into a workshop. The reason is most of the cases study are about people making serious mistake because of different kinds of reasons or excuses. It is very apparently to me that how easily they can avoid mistakes IF they can give themselves a little bit more time to think about the issue they were facing. The session was fruitful because it reorganised my knowledge of making decision.
Why- The most important thing to think about after the workshop is what I can do to avoid making the similar mistake if I am in that kind of situations. I have many experiences and learning point of lacking situation awareness, and I learn from the mistake to avoid making the same mistakes again and again. Lacking situation awareness exists in my daily life although it has not been a threatening factor. But if I now ignores the potential problem of "situation awareness", in the future it may damage my business or even my family.
How- There is no perfect solutions for such area of improvement. I think, for me, is to maintain a peaceful and calm mind. Since everyone is unique and different, I am not sure that it works for everyone. I find very very often that if my mind is "quite" and peaceful, I can spot and observe many many hidden things. I can think and establish the connections between the dots much more quickly than my mind is in flying. The example is I am sure very few people can read and really think about the content when they are running, playing, or even jumping on the ground. The underlying principle is to maintain focus, to reduce the distractions. And the bottom line is to control and master the mind of body.
