You can never do just one thing

This is a compelling visual of Event Oriented Thinking. One of the biggest problems of the live event industry.

Event oriented thinking sees the world as a complex succession of “events” rather than as a system as a whole. An event is behavior that happened or will happen. Event oriented thinking assumes that each event has a cause and that changing the cause will correspondingly change the event.

The rest of the system that produced the event need not be considered.

This doesn’t work in this “everything’s connected” world we live in today.
