From WHAT to HOW

December 14, 1903

Are you stuck in the WHAT at the expense of the HOW?

In man’s early efforts to fly, he attempted to mimic the best practices of the best fliers. He crafted wings made of feathers, strapped them to his arms, jumped off a [cathedral] and flapped like crazy.

When earlier attempts didn’t work, those who were determined knew what they obviously needed…more feathers!

In 1738, a mathematician named Daniel Bernoulli wrote a book entitled, Hydrodynamica. The stage was set for man to fly. However, it would be 165 years before the Wright Brothers pulled it off.

It took this long for would-be aviators to shift from WHAT they thought (the correlation that feathers equal the ability to fly), to making changes in HOW they thought (in this case the causality of “lift” given to us by Bernoulli).

If you truly want breakthroughs in your efforts to improve human performance (or in any of your endeavors for that matter), you must shift your thinking from WHAT to HOW. (In other words, from correlation to causality.)
