„Mindset“ is an often used quote nowadays, almost abused I might add. But if you belong to those, who try to those who like to abuse the „focus on mindest“ to cover lacking hardskills. I got news for you! The casual abuse of „mindset“ renders the quest for mindset even more legit, more legit than ever. Because the wrong mindset starts with not being objective on yourself.
In every serious military you have some easy to remember schemes, used to issue orders or simply to remember stuff. Those schemes arent used often enough nowadays. A particular scheme the German armed forces use is A-R-C, adress, rate and conclude (In German: A-B-F – Ansprechen-Beurteilen-Folgern).
This allows you analyze the situation, make your conclusion and makes it easier to make a final approach to solve it. It is easy to remember and bomb proof, also average Joe should understand it. But how often do people adress, rate and conclude on themselves?
