Mission Contain

You can’t control the mission. You can only contain the mission…

…from unknown variables to high-quality outcomes.

…from research to development.

…from the broad and shallow to the narrow and deep.

Moving in a straight line in a non-linear system is foolhardy. The straightest path exists within principles that operate as constraints.

  1. Branch into fast and broad exploration
  2. Make a choice: extend or prune
  3. Constellate your results
  4. Build
