Dr sweid How to Avoid Failure

  1. 1. FAILURE & DESTRUCTION = COMPONENT LEVEL(Even One Defective Component can Kill the System) FAILING x SYSTEM Dr Sweid How to Avoid Failure 1
  2. 2. SUCCESS IS ABOUT THE SYSTEMFAILURE IS ABOUT THE COMPONENT Dr Sweid How to Avoid Failure 2
  3. 3. • Failure or destruction is all about COMPONENT and element issues, i.e. you damage or remove one component and the system will collapse. For instance to stop a car from driving you only need to puncture a tire or remove the battery etc. To bring down a building all you need to do is damage one pillar or light a match.• Therefore, an evil act is easy because it only involves working on a specific component of the system. All you need to do is target a small element, knowing that the system cannot work without it. It is quite easy to create chaos, but it is very difficult to create order.• Failure of an individual or business can be caused by one defective or missing element. This is why failing is easy. When an element fails other elements linked to it start failing, leading to eventual collapse of the whole system.• Because there are so many components there are millions of reasons for failing.

  4. 4. BUILDING & SUCCESS = SYSTEM LEVEL (A Working Combination is Needed) WORKING SYSTEM Dr Sweid How to Avoid Failure 4
  5. 5. • On the other hand, building or success is a systemic issue, i.e. you need to make a COMBINATION, integration and synthesis of things in a specific order. It is putting together so many components, and hence it is difficult. Building a system for success is complex and difficult.• To avoid failure, just keep an eye on EVERY element of your system, since someone or something might be working on some element right at this moment. When you avoid failure you might keep on succeeding.• In brief, it is difficult to build or succeed and it is easy to fail or destroy. Dr Sweid How to Avoid Failure 5
