When Uncertain Just Start

imageSome sage advice in a post on a way forward when you ask ‘what to do when you don’t know what to do’ from a new volume by Schlesinger, Kiefer & Brown published by the Harvard Business School.

The basic advice is to follow the Act, Learn, Build and Repeat loop:

  1. Start with desire.
  2. Take a smart step as quickly as you can toward your goal.
  3. Reflect and build on what you have learned from taking that step.
  4. Repeat.
