To improve Performance we need to do two)things.:The down arrow is what we have to reduce, errors. The up arrow is what we have to increase, insights. Performance improvement depends on these two things.
Having insights is a different matter than from preventing mistakes.
What is an insight?
An insight is an act of creation that results in something new. Insights shift us toward a new story, a new set of beliefs that are more accurate, more comprehensive, and more useful.
Our insights transform us in several ways. They change how we understand, act, see, feel, and desire. They change how we understand. They transform our thinking; our new story gives us a different viewpoint. They change how we act. In some cases, insights transform our abilities as well as our understanding. Insights transform how we see; we look for different things in keeping with our new story. Insights transform how we feel—what excites us or makes us nervous. Finally, insights change our desires; the new stories shift our goals, leading us to give up some ambitions and pursue others.
In short, “Insight cannot be taken back. You cannot return to the moment you were in before.”
-Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall
