Scanning the periphery

Phrase of the day: “Scanning the periphery.” (From: Scanning for Threats and Opportunities, HBS Working Knowledge) “Buckminster Fuller developed a very personal and systematic approach to scanning the periphery. Whenever he was at an airport, he would randomly select a magazine from the stands in the bookstore and read it on his plane ride from cover to cover. On one trip the magazine might be about gardening, on another about fashion or airplane design. With each trip, Fuller learned something new and saw the world in a different way.

Observation: Some of my favorite blogs scan the periphery.
