We are in a systematic and multi-layered world, and people and people, people and the environment are interacting all the time. This turbulent world seems to have a dense network connecting the world together. We will also face With all kinds of complex problems, (here complex problems refer to the problems that the overall behavior of things cannot be simply reduced to parts that can be explained), and each of us is constantly learning and seeking methodologies to solve problems, including me myself too. But when I reflect on what I've learned, I find that most of the methodologies I've learned are of little help in solving real-world problems.
Here are two examples: The first category: problem-solving methodology relies on tricks Most of this kind of learning I summarize is actually about how Fax List others have overcome all kinds of difficulties and obstacles through "tricks" and finally succeeded, such as how Xiaomi played with social media marketing, how Zhang Xiaolong made WeChat, etc. Such stories At that time, I thought it was very exciting, like a blockbuster (people naturally like to listen to stories), and then I found that all kinds of things didn't work after work. This kind of learning is basically not helpful for solving problems, and the reason is very simple. It does not conform to the laws of nature.
The laws of nature mean that there is a definite connection between a certain set of conditions C and a certain set of phenomena E (if the conditions of type C are realized, then the type of E The event must happen), that is to say, if you do not have the same conditions as the other party, it is useless if you learn the tricks. The second category: problem-solving methodology based on the experience of others Most of this kind of learning is to summarize the experience of "people who have come here" into a systematic "methodology". I think this kind of learning is a very good learning material for beginners in a field, because these methodologies can be used in our encounters.
