Business Strategy: How many actions do you anticipate?

Time management is part of the functionality of ethical intelligence. Ethical intelligence is the “deepest” driver of human intelligence and defines the true intentions of a person. It is the main unconscious driver of human actions. It can only be measured by the consequences of the actions of an individual.

Its main characteristic is that it evolves or involves driven by the maturity of an individual. A just-born baby needs to be driven by survival ethical intelligence while a mature person that has achieved a high level of adaptiveness in the world would be driven by conceptual ethical intelligence. There is also a collective ethical intelligence that drives social behavior and is implicit in the archetype of a culture.

Time management is one of the skills that are driven by ethical intelligence. The higher the level of ethical intelligence the wider the scope of the actions and individual can plan.

 On the one end, people who are driven by the need to survive can only work here and now. On the other end, people can manage timeless strategies when they are driven by conceptual ethical intelligence. These skills expand driven by the maturity of people.

The development of strategies, anticipating what will happen, expands the ethical intelligence of an individual.  Only psychopaths or sociopaths, who use manipulation as a tool, can anticipate actions to profit from others without adding value. We recommend using the unicist strategy designer that will help you to anticipate and plan binary actions in any adaptive environment. https://www.unicist-systems.com

Time Management and Time Drivers

Time is defined as the part of the lifecycle elapsed between facts. It is considered a functional measurement of actions. Chronological time is a conventional factual measure of lifecycles. The same chronological time has different meanings according to the length of the lifecycle of the participants of an event.

Time DriversTime management is the human capacity to organize actions fulfilling external objective needs (external time) and respecting the universal time implicit in a specific scenario within the limits of the internal time of an individual.

Adapted individuals are those who are able to manage their internal time requirements to produce the external actions on time.

Universal time

It is the time driven by the evolution of a certain environment, its entropy and irreversibility. Understanding the universal time of an environment defines the external limits of time management. Universal time has to be respected and it defines the general taxonomy of actions.

External time

It is the time that defines when “things” have to be functional and working. External timing is the human capacity to influence reality when it is needed to make things happen. In an activity or working context the external time prevails over the internal time within the limits of the universal time. “Work” has to be done where and when it is needed.

Personal time

It is the time needed by an individual to get ready to make external timing work. Internal time depends on the capacity of individuals. It includes the time necessary to use the reactive and active intelligence to make decisions within the limits of their ontointelligence. Frustration’s elaboration speed is the main inhibitor of internal time management.
