Circular Logic

I was asked today how it is I manage to keep so many completely different balls in the air - online portals, cognitive labour, political campaigns, twitter, blogging, etc, etc.

That's easy, I replied - it's not about balls in the air, it's about dots on a page.  When you see how they connect and the picture they form, it all becomes easy, like a narrative.

For example:

Mental health.

Occupational mental health.

Mental health and innovation/productivity.

Mental health and Human Resources.

Human Resource Management

Management and Leadership.

Leadership and planning.

Planning and structure.

Structure and design.  

Designing online structures.

Design thinking.

Designing policy.

Policy and Engagement.

Engagement and community.

Systems theory and community.

Community engagement and empowerment.

Empowerment and knowledge.

Knowledge and training.

Training and action.

Action vs. reaction.

Reactive thinking vs. proactive thinking.

Designing proactive, engaged systems in the mind.

Cognitive Labour.

Mental Health.

A leads to B leads to C leads to D.  There's nothing to it; the only trick is explaining the B and C part of the equation.
