Episode 40 Card

In Episode 27: Evidence of Abundance, Peter and Dan discussed the 6 D’s framework and how this model is a road map to contextualize exponential technologies. In this episode, they dig deeper into the first step, Digitization, and why spending energy early on will ultimately lead to an enormous amount of time saved.

 

 

 

In this episode:

  • Peter and Dan each give examples of digitizing processes in everyday life: for example, governments using Global Entry to digitize the analog customs process, ultimately saving time and energy.
  • What are the three most important digital improvements you can make 90 days from now, and what’s the first step you’re going to take? Dan asks three questions that make this process easily applicable to entrepreneurs in their current business.
  • Peter discusses the fallacy of “waiting to get it right” in the analog world, and why acting early, getting feedback from your audience, and then iterating rapidly and experimenting is the mechanism for success in today’s world.
