I came across an interesting framework by DJ Patil, the first US Chief Data Scientist, summarizing his approach to tackling problems.
The framework for execution.
- Dream in years
- Plan in months
- Evaluate in weeks
- Ship daily
The framework for scale.
- Prototype for 1x
- Build for 10x
- Engineer for 100x
The framework for effectiveness.
- What’s required to cut the timeline in 1/2?
- What needs to be done to double the impact?
I like this — it makes intuitive sense with other things I have read and practised over the years. The idea of linking long-term dreams to daily actions can be practised both in business and our personal lives.
