Wouldn´t it be great if we wouldn´t have to live our life with full responsibility from the first moment on but, instead we´d take the chance to simulate it all – before we start?
Exactly, we´d end up with the same result!
Either we simulate our next step in life or we do it with full consciousness of the connected responsibility. The result would appear in the same way. But, ….. would it really? Or would you ACT differently with all your DECISIONS you´d take, one after the other?
Of course it´s the mindset which varies only! But how would we influence our decision making?
Would you act more risk orientated when simulating the next decision or would you be less risk tolerant?
And how will you act and decide when it´s for real? Will there be a difference?
In business, big companies started implementing junior-companies a while ago where young people who do their apprenticeship or a training – or those who come from universities – start working with simulated orders. It´s all not for real but the new products will be sold as seriously as the other products from the basic product palette.
The only difference is that these productions and sales from the junior-company won´t affect the real business.
They start working in this junior-company with a new norm circuit where all the decisions won´t affect the regular decisions from the real business. It´s called simulation.
It´s supported by a certain budget for playing “….. what if?” to train the employees. When you make real decisions in business and life you probably ask yourself all the time: “What if…?” and the budget is either way gone or well invested. You can´t tell all the time how its going to end.
BUT! But….. it´s a way, a mindset to look at things from a new perspective.
This is my take-away for you today:
if you have to make a completely new (new info) or a tough decision soon and you´re insecure about the result because you lack a gut feeling, and you think of not risking it all at once >> start small with a simulation task! Tell yourself it´s a training! Walk yourself through it with a fix budget and play it through. It won´t bring you any guarantee but it´ll deliver experience and experience develops your gut feeling.

BE A DECISION MAKER. BECOME OUTSTANDING.
