The Big Ideas:
What We’re All About
What are we doing here and why are we doing it? With an assist from Mike, Jim lays out the secret; the keys to the whole mission of Tactical Tangents. These are the key concepts to helping the Doers do things better in the tactical world, whether military, law enforcement, or general personal defense.
There are recurring concepts here at Tactical Tangents that are core to our mission, and this episode serves as a sort of Cliff’s Notes to lay them out for you, the listener. Understanding how innovation drives ideas, the importance of good decision-making, practicing and testing tactics and soft skills under pressure and the importance of repetition in building proficiency are covered, as well as the applicability of Boyd’s decision cycle from the strategic level down to that of personal tactics.
