” See and Do” and “Think and Do,” Revisited

January 11, 2010 at 11:08 pm Leave a comment

Once upon a time, a long, long,  long time ago, when I was in school, the mainstays of the curriculum were the “Think and Do” books and the “See and Do” books.  Current youth would label them “lame-tastic,” as they were of the “See Spot. See Spot run. Run, Spot, run.” school of early learning.  (If you are fortunate enough to have avoided the series, “Spot” is the dog, and the books were about the perfect family, not a dry cleaning nightmare.)

Fast forward to the 21st century.  “Everything I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” has been off the bestseller list for decades, and Spot is long gone, but “See and Do”  and “Think and Do” still resonate today.

Business survival today is all about “See and Do”  and “Think and Do.” Survival means seeing into the future the best we can, and doing something about it.  Closing our eyes, or looking back won’t get us where we need to be.  Burrowing down and not acting is a recipe for disaster.  Likewise, we need to “Think and Do.”  We need to think, and then do. Action is not the same as effectiveness.  We don’t have the resources – the time, the money – to waste.   

See. Think. Do. Maybe we really did learn everything we needed to know, back in kindergarten, a long, long time ago.
