Learn to analyse

Analysis is often demonised in our society. The main messages we hear nowadays are ‘don’t overanalyse’ or ‘keep it simple’. With the amount of data we receive daily it’s a reasonable defence strategy. However, proper analysis should always form the basis of all strategies. Without data collection and management all your decisions are based on guesswork, which carries a huge risk of failure. Our minds have incredible power but they tend to be messy if we simply keep them as they are without organising them. In order to react quickly and make the right decision you have to know which case to open. Working through the data and facts helps you keep calm because you are operating with what you know, not with what you are guessing.
