The Baroque Cycle - Wikiquote
“Pay attention, that’s all,” Eliza said. “Notice things. Connect what you’ve noticed. Connect it into a picture. Think of how the picture might be changed; and act to change it. Some of your acts may turn out to have been foolish, but others will reward you in surprising ways; and in the meantime, simply by being active instead of passive, you have a kind of immunity that’s hard to explain—”

Halios Seaforth Review - worn&wound
For micro-brand watch enthusiasts, Halios is one of those brands whose releases cause a particularly high level of excitement. The mix of infrequent new models and scarcity once available with a unique aesthetic and high value level make them almost irresistible, especially for dive watch fans. In many ways, Halios represents the modern incarnation of the boutique dive watch brands that were so popular a few years back.

How fast do you learn? How fast does your team learn? What about your organization’s speed of learning? Is it faster than your competitors?

Jack Welch famously said “if the rate of change outside your organization is faster than the rate of change inside you’re already dead”. But I would argue that this statement needs revision.
