Agility in a nutshell: Look, try, learn, repeat; favor easy change

What to do:

  1. Find out where you are
  2. Take a small step towards your goal
  3. Adjust your understanding based on what you learned
  4. Repeat

How to do it:

When faced with two of more alternatives that deliver roughly the same value, take the path that makes future change easier.
