We live our lives asleep...
A recurrent theme with philosophers.
In our consulting work & in my books, I call it the fog.
Those of you who work in large corporations know what I mean.
Everything is blurry - our Purpose, Processes, Expected Outcomes.
What game are we playing?
Are we winning or losing?
Plan-Do-Check-Adjust is about wakefulness.
It's embedded tests which serve as prods - "Hey, wake up!"
That's why it takes a lifetime to learn.
