You’ll recognize the deep wisdom in Nature by observing patterns in the larger "web of interactions". Notice how everything interacts in two ways: Sequentially and Simultaneously. Sequential events (i.e. one thing happens, and then another, in a logic path...) allow us to make "decision-tree choices". Simultaneous events require a more intuitive way of thinking that begins with an understanding of "games theory choices".

Decisions-trees can be thought out and pre-planned. For example -
if this occurs, I can choose 1, 2, 3, but if that occurs I’ll choose 1, 2 or 4. If 4 comes true, I’ll have to prepare x, y, z.

In order to play the game properly, games theory requires that you know the rules. Learning the rules includes considering - Do I have to play?

In the jungle, choices are very often “life or death”. Many species display great intelligence in using strategies that require both logic and intuition. When a Jaguar stalks prey, for example, it plans every move and calculates all the options of its soon-to-be-meal. Its assumptions form an overall strategy that requires precise execution and it can't afford to be wrong.

In a hunt, the Jaguar has even figured how much effort will be spent and he must allow for it; the awesome cat will waste no energy to achieve its aims. It commits to its plan and acts decisively by darting here, there and then there. Where its prey predictably zigs instead of zags - well that’s where the deed is done...

The ease with which Jaguars catch food is testimony to a finely-honed "psyche". Its strategic intelligence is so impressive that the sorcerers of Mexico and Central America were convinced the cat could read minds. They suggested "not thinking" as the strategy to use if ever you find yourself stalked by that fierce predator - that or suddenly acting unpredictably or unreasonably.

Because we are never sure where we fit in somebody else's game plan, a winning strategy involves
honing your psychic skills to become a more creative thinker. Many people don't yet realize that there are a lot of ways of perceiving a given situation. For example it can be a challenge, a resource or a forgettable event. Each of those perceptions will allow you to arrive at a different conclusion. When we have options, we’ll see that some are more profitable than others.

Knowing how to use appropriate thinking modes allows for the emergence of a strategic mind; it's less a matter of "
what you think" and more "how you think about it".

Management experts agree that creative self-empowerment is the only sure way to gain an advantage - no matter what the game or the competitive climate. By learning and then practicing creative thinking, you can evolve a more powerful personality. Creativity lets you increase your options and choices.

Peter Drucker, undisputed leader in modern management theory, says:
"Success in the knowledge economy comes to those who know themselves - their strengths, their values - and how they best perform."
He suggests a three-pronged approach to a life managed around acquiring personal power:
  1. Concentrate on your strengths; invest your energy where you best produce results;
  2. Work on improving your strengths; self-observation will tell you where to hone or add to your skills;
  3. Discover where your intellectual arrogance causes your most disabling ignorance and work to overcome it.

Drucker says it's equally essential to remedy bad habits, i.e.
the things we do or fail to do which inhibit effectiveness and performance. But he further suggests we should waste as little time as possible on improving areas of low competence.

He tells us that it takes more energy to improve from incompetence to mediocrity than it does to move from a good performance to organized excellence somewhere else. Then earning your daily bread will be as easy for you as it is for the noble Jaguar.
