Should we consider this when forming a team?

The size of social groups of people in pre-industrial societies, especially hunters/gatherers. They found several common sizes:

  1. An “inner circle” of about three to five very close friends or family members
  2. A “sympathy group” of 12 to 15 close friends who care about each other’s fate
  3. A “hunting group” of 30 to 50 colleagues who cooperate to accomplish a task

When you know what you want to achieve, but don’t know how – you need Strategy.
Strategy = boundaries and set of principles, nothing more. Executing strategy – operating within those boundaries and according described principles.
Plans are helpful when task is well-known. If you don’t know how to do it – just ask people who already know that. No need to reinvent.

Complex work. People are solving problems, not plans or processes.

Noticed one thing. I try to simplify what i hear from others in order to remember more. And try to remember one core thing from what other people are saying…

Keeping this in mind i realized that i must change how and what i communicate to others, how i should start and end conversations and lots more…

Say one thing and you’re saying something. Say three things, you’re saying nothing.

p.s. that’s why i guess twitter is still popular. You have _only_ 140 symbols to express yourself.
