    • The Before and After of The Domino Effect

      The Domino are Falling! I assume we've all enjoyed one of these amazing videos, prepared by people sharing with us the excitement of triggering a domino effect - you knock the first domino (or whatever contraption you use) - and then - an amazing "story" unfolds as one element knocks the next element into action - one wow after the other, and after some time - we're all done... But - happened before the first domino was knocked over? Do you realize how many hours (days?) the team worked to set up one domino after the other? how many parts failed by mistakingly knocking over a domino, that knocked another one over, etc.? Not to mention the long time of planning the effects, and how the effects come along together? I'll state the obvious "common sense": ⇒ Before every achievement there is so much work done. Planning. Preparation. Execution. FAILURES!. And more Planning. And more Preparation. And more. And more. And eventually - with a lot of determination - the work "comes together". So the Domino Effect is amazing. Justifiably so. Just don't forget the investment BEFORE the Domino Effect. And what happened after the final domino fell? Yes, of course there's happiness, and joy, and celebration and toasting and partying. All justified and well-earned. Can you imagine the MESS the team faced? All of those dominoes need collecting, sorting, packing... Lots of work. I'll state the obvious "common sense": ⇒ After every achievement there is yet again more work to be done. Your work doesn't end once you're reached your goal. Enjoy the moment. Celebrate the achievement. Breath. And now - get on with your life. Prepare for your next achievement. Thoughts? Feedback? LMK.

    • לקפוץ למים - עקב בצד אגודל | קפיצה גדולה - וצעדים קטנים

      [Original Post in English, if you prefer] [תורגם מאנגלית - אם נוח לכם באנגלית - אז בבקשה...] עוברים את התהום - בקפיצה גדולה. צריך ״פשוט לקפוץ למים״. הדרך מורכבת - מהרבה צעדים קטנים. את הדרך עוברים ״עקב בצד אגודל״. [בעקבות משוב מאחת המבקרות הנאמנות, יש דוגמה מעשית בסוף...] לא מזמן, נקלעתי לדיון על איך לחולל שינוי, לתמיד. הנושא היה איך מתחילים שינוי (מרזים, מתחילים לעשות כושר, לומדים שפה) - ומתמידים בו. שתי העמדות שהוצגו בדיון היו האם ״צריך פשוט לקפוץ למים״ - או ״עקב בצד אגודל״. אחרי הרבה חפירות (שאחסוך לכם) הגעתי ל״תובנה״ הבאה: צריך פשוט לקפוץ למים - ולהמשיך עם עקב בצד אגודל. צריך לעשות קפיצה גדולה - ועוד המון צעדים קטנים. אסביר למה כוונתי. אם לוקחים קפיצה גדולה - אם ״פשוט קופצים למים״, מסתכנים בהגזמה, שתגרום לנו לנטישה מהירה. אם עושים צעדים קטנים - ״עקב בצד אגודל״, מסתכנים בהתקדמות איטית מדי, שלא נוכל לראות או להרגיש שום הבדל, מה שיגרום לתחושת ייאוש - ולנטישה. הפיתרון הוא פשוט ״גם וגם״. גם קפיצה גדולה - וגם צעדים קטנים. כשאנחנו רוצים לחולל שינוי, שיחזיק מעמד, להחלטה שלנו צריכים להיות שני המרכיבים הבאים: ״פשוט לקפוץ למים״, לקחת קפיצה גדולה, לקבל על עצמינו התחייבות נקודתית שהיא יותר ממה שאנחנו חושבים מסוגלים - החלטה שתוליך אותנו לתחילת הדרך לשינוי - שתראה לנו שאכן - אנחנו יכולים. ללכת ״עקב בצד אגודל״, ולעשות הרבה צעדים קטנים, להכניס ללו״ז שלנו - בתדירות גבוהה - פעילויות שתומכות בשינוי שאנחנו רוצים לחולל, כאשר כל פעילות הינה מספיק קטנה שתוכלו לעמוד בהתחייבות - וכך ״לקבע״ את השינוי ולהפוך אותו להיות חלק מעצמכם. פשוט תקפצו למים - ותמשיכו ללכת עקב בצד אגודל! בהצלחה... למשל, אם השינוי הוא להתחיל - ולהמשיך - לרוץ, אז: להחליט שרצים החל ממחר! (או אפילו עכשיו) וכמה פעמים בשבוע (לפחות 3 - כי פחות מזה קל מידי לאבד את הקביעות) ואיזה מרחק - או כמה זמן (פחות קריטי - זה צעד קטן - ואפשר לשקול להגדיל את המרחק - או הזמן - בהמשך) #culture #philosophy

    • WWTT??? iOS 14 Phone Call Banners

      With iOS 14, Apple introduced a long-awaited feature of Incoming Call Banners (as part of their Compact UI effort), "that enables users to stay in the context of what they are doing" (quoted from Apple's PR, here). Now, when you're using your phone, and you get a incoming call, you have the option (on by default) to have the incoming call appear as a banner (instead of overtake your screen with the full screen UI we got used to in the previous 13 versions of iOS). Great improvement. Love the feature. But, they also introduced a WWTT moment - what were they thinking??? Checkout what happens as soon as you accept the call (by clicking on the Green "Answer Call" button): The Red button (initially serving as Decline Call, and once you answered - serving as "Disconnect Call") - moved! It started on the left - and now moved to the right. So, a very typical scenario looks like this: I get a call. I click the Answer button. Now, I want to turn on the Speaker. The Speaker button would naturally appear exactly where the Answer button was... But no... It isn't. This is where the Disconnect Call button is now. WWTT???
