In a focus to be more innovative in your particular business or vocation, which of your own human senses are you using most effectively today?
How well are you using your complete observations that combine these senses with other brain functions to create new insights, new intelligence or safety knowledge?
How many steps are there from your front hallway up to your second story in your residence? If you know the answer, why?
Your observation skill sets are combining human senses and other brain functions to provide you with new insights, knowledge and domain awareness.
Or you may already know the answer of how many steps are in your home because you are handicapped or blind.
You many also know the moment that someone in your house is boiling water on the kitchen stove, because of a unique smell. And you probably know who that person is.
You many know the moment a next door neighbor leaves their garage, based upon the sound of their vehicle.
We are continuously combining our sensory functions and brain functions all the time, even without thinking about it.
"Yet how observant are you really? Do you store your sensory information somewhere for retrieval later? In case you need it?"
What if you became more actively conscious about this by practicing it each day. How might this new observant talent be of a vital use to you and others?
Operational Risk Management requires multi-sensing information processing and response 24x7 by you, not just by your machines.
By you as a standalone human.
If you had to operate for a whole day without your iPhone with you on next Friday, what might you observe? What might you learn?
How might you better increase your own personal knowledge on this Friday.
With the observation of human senses of Time? Of Direction? Of Temperature? Of Weather? Of even a lack of “Knowledge” of what your friends, followers or family are doing each hour of their day.
Your future abilities of human observation will enhance your innovation capabilities as you continuously adapt to your hourly and daily environment.
Your enhanced personal “Operational Risk” skill-sets will keep you more Sensory Informed, more Aware and more Ready (SIAR) than so many others…
