Friction of Ideas

Friction of Ideas

Fatima G. Williams wrote recently a thought-provoking buzz, which attracted very interesting discussions. I suggested the acronym of KUBE Loop to Fatima, which she accepted. This loop basically says the following summarizing the thoughts of Fatima. Know what is expected from you. Understand the work given to you. Believe you can accomplish the work and that belief in yourself drowns the other negative voice. Execute your thoughts into actions. Your actions into results. Your results into analyses. Your failures into experiences. Your experiences into lessons for self and others. Your successes into motivations.Β Execution leads to results and these results may end up in failure or success. If failing, turn failure to life lessons. If succeeding turn successes to motivation.

My fractal wave consists of Fatima's Loop KUBE Loop reminded me of a different fractal that I developed for knowing your customers, to give one example. My fractal wave consists of two stages: the trust-building stage and the business-building stage with each step starting with the C letter. The 5Cs and 3Cs look like a wave similar to that of the stock markets.

We need to connect with a customer, a topic, readers, or any issue that crosses your mind to collect information about customers or readers and their needs and classify their needs. It is then possible to create content or make offers that appeal to them. Commitment to your meeting the readers (customers) aspirations becomes crucial. This ends the trust-building phase and moves us into the second phase of building business with customers (readers are customers). You still need to continue gauging your customer needs and then capitalize on the built trust and cultivate the fruits of your effort. And the wave starts again.

I want to be my own customer. I need to trust myself so that I may not be micromanaged by others. I need to build trust in myself. This is the core issue. I need to connect with myself as a starting point. May be this is the linking between the KUBE Loop and the 8Cs Wave Model. It is the step that takes me on the journey to discover more about myself to understand more, to know more and then execute.

Does knowing more lead to better execution? I keep saying that the more we know, the less we know for we find how much more we need to know. I am mentioning this because of a thoughtful comment that CityVP Manjit made on Fatima's buzz. In it, Manjt wrote "Think of it like this, without defining knowing at the beginning therefore knowing that knowing, you begin with a belief, create understanding through practice (execution), check that understanding (scientific method) and what emerges is new knowing and once you have this new knowing you action or act is bringing it into use - and now you plan with a new belief which will eventually process through and emerge a new knowing. That is why I would not start with knowing because examining the future through the old, whereas the cycle is about the fragrance and the wonder of something new - knowing as an emergence. That is the way of Milos - it is not the butterfly flaps but the Lorenz curve emerges in a pattern that looks like a butterfly. Put it simply the Deming Cycle or also called the Shewart Cycle (Plan Do Check Act) is about the same emergence which @Milos Djukic addresses in his buzzes

You have a thought? I would love to hear from you.

"I want to be my own customer. I need to trust myself so that I may not be micromanaged by others. I need to build trust in myself. This is the core issue" This is indeed the "core issue" Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador of beBee. Embedded in this core is the statement that follows, "I need to connect with myself as a starting point. May be this is the linking between the KUBE Loop and the 8Cs Wave Model." I say embedded because it is the self-trusting I who is in the process defined by the KUBE Loop and the 8Cs Wave Model; dissociate the self-trusting I from the process and you remove the core. In this way, the process implodes.

Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador of beBee, your comment reminded me of the discussion that often takes place in the study of ethical behaviours; some individuals say that before they act in a particular way, they need to understand the why, whereas, others say that only through the act or behaviour can you ever understand the why. An important discussion. PS I will be using the same quote you chose from 's buzz.

"...i know through experience that process is where success is made." Agreed Harvey Lloyd! And I don't get called many names; at least not to my face ;-)

Your comment pleases me immensely because I am happy if my buzzes drive readers too think. I am thinking about writing a buzz and engagement again. A buzz with many views and very poor engagement is like an inflated cake filled with like- sweet to eat, but soon the reader feels hungry again.

CityVP \ud83d\udc1d Manjit comment. You write "For me my realisation starts with knowing before believing" Manjit wrote in his comment "The scientific method starts with believe or "Hypothesis" and then works its way to knowing". We have two opposing thinking and I am going to explore this in a much greater detail. I hope all commenters would reflect on this.

CityVP \ud83d\udc1d Manjit- this isa tremendous comment. Many times the "disruption of Knowledge" may be our way to go forward. The longer we own a knowledge, the more resistant we shall be to refuting it. I believe this is a hot topic on its own and I shall probe it further very soon. This is triggered by your writing " In the world of relationships that knowing constantly shifts and changes and where there is uncertainty we need a different way of understanding that does not emanate from knowing, but a questioning of our belief". I believe this is worthy of expanding on a lot.

🐝 Fatima G. Williams

Dear Ali Anani this is an excellent topic for discussion with employees during a meeting to get them BE UK or understand the KUBE loop as well the 5 C's and 3 C's. "I want to be my own customer. I need to trust myself so that I may not be micromanaged by others. I need to build trust in myself. This is the core issue" When this realisation happens we will be able to make the right choices. For me my realisation starts with knowing before believing. A person like me needs to know what I want before I understand, believe and execute but I respect and understand how the BE UK works. As City VP Manjit says "Believing and Executing is a constant testing with reality and changes understanding and knowing. Its a loop that goes in circle I believe as it might work both ways." I'm intrigued with my own thoughts.While my understanding keeps changing according to results I go back to knowing and Believing again.

KUBE totally applies for the academic who is stands on the shoulder of the great but not the pioneer theorist. It also applies to the status quo when we do not want uncertainty in our lives. The church that develops from that existence then is confronted by the innovator and the rebel. Whether it is Martin Luther or Galileo someone upsets the comfort of KNOW. The scientific method starts with believe or "Hypothesis" and then works its way to knowing because then we are in possession of proof but just because there is a scientific method does not mean that we are the innovator. Original source is a great place to go back to and the true academician is a great questioner and works hard to get back to source, but most academicians give academics a bad name because they become politicians. We know this to be true because behind the ivory tower exists the most hostile of environments - far more hostile than they are compared to the world of business. So we start with belief even when the experiment has shown us what is true. Belief is not about creating an alternative fact, it is a continuous improvement cycle that is busting through our knowing. In the world of relationships that knowing constantly shifts and changes and where there is uncertainty we need a different way of understanding that does not emanate from knowing, but a questioning of our belief. If the answer is static we have a fact but where the answer is dynamic and changing as in how a market will react to us - then BE-UK seems far more reasonable, where the UK is the transformation point. Believing and executing is a constant testing with reality and market changes but Understanding and Knowing is seeing the results of that execution and the knowing is organizational knowing - how that knowing is put back into the belief of the organization. That is what refreshes the theorist ! cc 🐝 Fatima G. Williams

I appreciate your prompt response to my invitation Harvey Lloyd. In every step of the wave or the loop we are bound to err and learn. It is a continuous process. If not, it becomes like a river whose water flow got blocked. If water stays stagnant it decays and allows for the growth of molds and fungi. Yes, learning is a living process and if it doesn't spiral us up then we are lost.

Catching up with your posts gives me a view of this post that is an amalgamation of thoughts. My first thought is how Google disrupts the "KUBE" process. But first, success is a process not a condition. If it is a condition it is a short lived condition. The process you describe is part of the success loop where Google tries to help, i guess, short circuit the process through getting us to success by side stepping the components. The loop of success is always challenging with new ideas, skills and processes to achieve. This being short circuited by skipping steps will lead to high risk rabbit holes that leave us exacerbated with the question of what went wrong? For some reason we as a species have forgotten that trial and error are part of the human condition. We like the trial part and expand upon it greatly. But we tend to not engage with trials because of the potential of errors. Here again i use "Google" as the environment to show that errors can be magnified by exposure the very openness of the media world. I am a process guy. I get called many names for this but i know through experience that process is where success is made.
