Mindset Mondays with DTK – Ep #92 — The map is not the territory.

A map is a diagrammatic representation of an area showing physical features … but it’s just a representation. It’s not the area itself. To get a true feel of an area or a system, one must be in it. But to change something, be it a system or a culture, one must have an intimate grasp of that which is to be created from it. Simon Sinek spoke to this idea in a recent “Notes to Inspire:”

“The most effective way to rebel against structure and tear down walls is first to understand the structure we aim to reinvent.”

So often we see rebellion with only a goal of dismantling. Let’s get practical. If the bricks of the existing building are to be used to form a part of the new, then dismantling via wrecking ball is not the way. When we destroy first and plan later we limit the future. The sustainable initiative or movement begins with clarity about what is to be built … long before raising the rebel flag.

What is it you want to see built?
