John Boyd is a legend in the fighter pilot world.
If you haven’t heard of him, you may have heard about two planes he helped design – the F-15 and F-16.
The F-16 is designed for one thing – maneuverability.
It doesn’t have the longest range.
And it isn’t even the fastest in a straight line.
But when it comes to the chaos and unpredictability of the dogfight, the F-16 is virtually unmatched.
And the F-16 is based on Boyd’s theories in dogfighting.
Col. Boyd believe that a fighter pilot must change speed and direction faster than an opponent to stay ahead.
The benefits of changing speed and direction are immense.
First off, you’re acting instead of reacting. Opponents react to you.
But here’s the real reason changing direction matters: If you commit to a direction, you can realize it’s wrong and correct before your opponent even moves.
You can fail and correct before others have started.
You get two tries for their one.
You’re more likely to find success just from the sheer number of tries.
As we move into 2018, one of the best steps you can take in your business is to move.
That thing you’ve been debating…Try it.
Start small. Maybe it won’t work.
If it doesn’t, it’s a small loss. You’ll learn. And move forward.
But take action.
2018 can be your year.
