Thanks for coming. I write weekly newsletters and share daily intellectual visuals related to apex KEYWORDS from Finance, Health, Philosophy, Psychology, and Technology.
The core Idea behind building Quantum Thinker (this blog + newsletter + visuals) is to teach and entertain its readers about interesting topics with the mix of visuals, quotes and mental models.
We all live in VUCA world which means:
• Volatility - changes in the world are continuous and always large-scale, affecting all areas at once.
• Uncertainty - the present is difficult to describe, and the future cannot be determined.
• Complexity - many interdependent factors are so messy that they lead to chaos.
• Ambiguity - because no situation can be fully understood, so there is always some unclearness.
and this results in FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) a psychological disorder.
Solution is ...
BE A 'QUANTUM THINKER'
We cannot rely on trial & tested methods, so we need to learn and adapt new ideas which enforce us to continuously think in counter-intuitive loop, I used to call as "Quantum Thinking" i.e., continuous Yes/No, also called Contrarian Thinking or Paradox Mindset or Agile Mindset.
Quantum is the tiniest amount of any physical quantity involved in any interaction with other particle. It means we need to learn minute details of any given data or information.
A quantum (plural: quanta) is the smallest discrete unit of a phenomenon. For example, a quantum of light is a photon, and a quantum of electricity is an electron.
Quantum comes from Latin, meaning "an amount" or "how much?" If something is quantifiable, then it can be measured.
Let's understand two most popular phenomenon from Physics:
1. Light has dual nature of both particle and wave at the same time, proved by Niels Bohr, called 'Quantum Superposition'.
2. Albert Einstein contemplated how an object could be both at rest and moving depending on the position of the observer, a consideration called 'Theory of Relativity'.
Focus on one white dot in the below square (metaphor), you will feel black dots emerged around it. A basic example of Quantum Thinking. It is called Hermann grid an optical illusion reported by Ludimar Hermann in 1870 characterized by "ghostlike" grey blobs perceived at the intersections of a white (or light-colored) grid on a black background.
What is Quantum Thinking ?
Quantum thinking is defined as the ability to have two opposing thoughts at the same moment and act on the appropriate notion at the right time. In other words, one must be able to see beyond a simplistic true or false worldview. It is the acceptance that truth does not always have to make sense. Truth is unchangeable, whether we accept it or reject it. There are probabilities that can happen at any time, and the world isn't just 0 or 1.
Quantum thinking enables you to become more empathic (one of the most overpaid qualities for some leaders in many firms of various sizes) while also avoiding tunnel vision concerns.
It broadens your perspective of the world around you, allowing you to consider not only yourself, but also the influence your decisions will have on others.
These talents are essential for success if you want to be an innovator, a change and development facilitator, or an entrepreneur. This means that quantum thinking is the inverse of binary thinking. Quantum thinking offers more possibilities, infinite ones.
When we apply the same concept to business, it will help you comprehend the "seller side" and the "buyer side of things." As a result, if you were to establish your own firm, your pricing approach and business model would appeal to almost everyone.
Quantum Thinkers are people who have the ability to see many perspectives altogether or individually. They collect perspectives like a kid collects candies and are the opposite of people with a hammer looking for a nail.
As a result, they have following superpowers...
• Synthesize contradicting perspectives (fewer blind spots)
• Find more distant connections (more breakthrough ideas)
• Think in more dimensions (more revelatory experiences)
• Grow faster developments (higher adult development)
• More empathetic (deeper relationships)
A quantum thinker can be described by following types and much more...
1. POLYMATH: Learns across disciplines.
2. WISE MIND: Synthesize emotional, kinaesthetic and rational mind.
3. THINKER / DOER: Go deep on theory and translate into real world results.
4. DEEP / SURFACE: Sees reality at a concrete, sense level and as deep abstractions.
5. DISCOVER AND DEVELOP: Balances exploring new worlds with making the most of existing ones.
6. TIME: Can think very short-term and forward/backward hundreds of years.
