Stumbling on thought provoking content on the internet puts me a smile on my face, like someone said it’s like noise canceling headphones for the web.

I found Shane Parrish’s blog through this post: The Relationship Between Design and Planning. Here he makes an interesting comparison between Design and Planning based on his reads of a document from the US Army: The U.S. Army/Marine Corps Counterinsurgency Field Manual

“The underlying premise is this: when participants achieve a level of understanding such that the situation no longer appears complex, they can exercise logic and intuition effectively. As a result, design focuses on framing the problem rather than developing courses of action.”

I can relate do much to this sentence, and reminds me of another quote from the guys of IDEO:

“Informing our Intuition”
