Micro Entrepreneurism, Simple Living & Art
OODA loop is a term introduced to me by the great Brian Taylor. The simple explanation is that it stands for Observe, Orient, Decide, Act.
Two weekends ago Mom found a property in West Virginia that she fell in love with. She dreamed about it. She named it. She couldn’t help but tell people about it. We hadn’t scheduled our first exploratory roadie until the 24th, but she was too excited to wait. So, this past weekend we packed ourselves and the puppies in the car for a recon trip.
The property was an utter let down (for many reasons). We had just driven through the night, for over 16 hours, to get there and we had planned to spend the weekend there and we didn’t want to be there at all. In 20 minutes we were back in the car, already formulating plan B.
I would venture to say that absolutely nothing about the weekend went according to plan. Even plan B, C, and D. But we never got stuck. We never dwelled on what wasn’t working, and got mad or sad or stupid, we just kept adapting. It was an amazing weekend.
