One hundred and forty seven days in the project #CriticalThinking in 365 concepts

Second week in #policy making, and week twenty-one overall, are complete.

We are armed now with a few books and a few other concepts and approaches intended to lead us into the depths of the field. With thoroughness one can now delve deeper in better understanding and making a difference in virtually any policy issue area. Let us recall that prior concepts that we introduced are all fair game to use in bombarding any policy issue area with them for analysis. We exemplified that briefly in week 140 with Imagination as applied in policy making. 

Last week, preparing a few videos on another related project we will be releasing soon, particularized to parents, we recalled a story that in much part started it all. 

The story of the eighteen month old girl climbing on a chair, that she brought from the kitchen to the porch, to look past the porch railing to see where her fallen doll had landed under the porch. 

_Behavior never taught or trained._ 

We used said story to re-boost the self esteem of college and graduate students in public policy and management for a couple of decades now. It is thus only fair to emphasize it here now as well. 

_All life is a puzzle where we don't have the picture on the box in front of us._ We are equipped with the skills to address it well. All we need to do is to tap into them even when they've been covered over with false messages that we may have been forgotten or may not even be there. 

If nobody told us yet "you can't do that," we just went ahead and did it.;) If someone did yell at us the same we just didn't trust them and set out to prove them wrong!;) So we did it!

One reason we intentionally say this here and now has to do with Carnot. We know we all have the skills to ask and answer questions we must have about that and other things. Best of success.

The last week in review:

141. Agenda Setting

142. Policy Analysis 

143. Mystery Minority Stakeholder

144. Power of the Novice 

145. Lessons from Kindergarten, or Percentage achieved out of Carnot efficiency and effectiveness of a #strategy

146. Lamborghini 

147. Legacy

As always, we're here to answer any questions you may have after thoroughly considering all these and much more that they point out to.
