  20. 20. FIRST, WE BEGIN BY MAPPING THE SYSTEM THIS IS CALLED A CAUSAL LOOP DIAGRAM, AND IT’S JUST ONE OF THE TOOLS THAT WILL HELP YOU UNDERSTAND A MORE CONNECTED & COMPLEX WORLD EXPECTATIONS OF THE FUTURE DISCRETIONARY INCOME HEALTH OF THE FAMILY CLARITY OF OPTIONS RETIREMENT INVESTING
  21. 21. WE WANT TO CONNECT THE DOTS BETWEEN OUR OBJECTIVE AND ITS INFLUENCES AND HOW THESE ELEMENTS INTERACT WITH ONE ANOTHER TO FORM THE STRUCTURE AND BEHAVIOR OF THE OVERALL SYSTEM EXPECTATIONS OF THE FUTURE DISCRETIONARY INCOME O S HEALTH OF THE FAMILY S CLARITY OF OPTIONS S S RETIREMENT INVESTING ABOUT THE MAP: The lines show how one element may be related to another, and the letters ‘S’ and ‘O’ describe how they affect each other. S for Same, O for Opposite. For example, here we think as the health of the family increases, so will the likelihood of retirement investing. So these elements move in the same direction.
  22. 22. UNDERSTANDING THE SYSTEM ALLOWS US TO IDENTIFY POINTS OF LEVERAGE TWO GOALS HERE: TO IDENTIFY MULTIPLE PRESSURE POINTS INSTEAD OF A SINGLE FOCUS, AND TO STUDY THE SYSTEMIC IMPLICATIONS OF ANY CHANGE WE INTRODUCE EXPECTATIONS OF THE FUTURE DISCRETIONARY INCOME O S HEALTH OF THE FAMILY S CLARITY OF OPTIONS S S RETIREMENT INVESTING
  23. 23. NEXT, OUR NETWORK GENERATES A SUITE OF SOLUTIONS FOR EACH LEVERAGE POINT FROM THAT MOUNTAIN OF IDEAS, WE CULL UNTIL WE DESIGN AN ELEGANT PROGRAM OF SOLUTIONS TO ACHIEVE OUR OBJECTIVE O S HEALTH OF THE FAMILY S CLARITY OF OPTIONS S S RETIREMENT INVESTING
  24. 24. AND THOSE SOLUTIONS THAT ARE ENACTED AND PROMOTED WILL BE BRANDED ALIKE SO THAT REGARDLESS OF AUDIENCE, GOVERNMENT/COMPANY/CITIZEN, IT’S UNDERSTOOD THAT ALL SHARE A COMMON GOAL AND EACH REQUIRE PARTICIPATION O S HEALTH OF THE FAMILY S CLARITY OF OPTIONS S S RETIREMENT INVESTING
  25. 25. FINALLY, AS OUR SOLUTIONS ARE TESTED IN THE REAL WORLD, WE’LL MEASURE THEIR PERFORMANCE WE’LL DO OUR BEST TO KEEP AN EYE ON THE ENTIRE SYSTEM, TO CATCH ANY NEW TRENDS OR UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES EARLY IN THEIR DEVELOPMENT O S HEALTH OF THE FAMILY S CLARITY OF OPTIONS S S RETIREMENT INVESTING
  26. 26. THIS IS HOW THE MOST MASSIVELY COMPLEX CHALLENGES OF THE FUTURE WILL BE SOLVED. THROUGH THE COLLABORATION OF PROFESSIONALS WHO SHARE A COMMON UNDERSTANDING, VISION, AND FUTURE.
  27. 27. TODAY, WE’RE PREPARING THE FIRST STEP OF THIS VISION – A GUIDEBOOK* THAT WILL ... • GIVE YOU THE TOOLS AND KNOW-HOW TO FACE COMPLEX CHALLENGES IN YOUR OWN LIFE • GRANT YOU ACCESS TO A NETWORK OF PROBLEM SOLVERS TO SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE • ESTABLISH A COMMON UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN FUTURE MEMBERS SO THAT WE CAN SOLVE THE MOST MASSIVELY COMPLEX CHALLENGES TOGETHER * BOOK IS POTENTIALLY A QUAINT WORD OF YE OLDEN TIMES FOR WHAT’S IN MIND.
