The Christmas holiday period can provide an opportunity to get some perspective on things. Seems an obvious thing to say really, but it's important to actually reflect on what you've got, acknowledge and appreciate the relationships and material things that are right there in front of you and which you often take for granted every day. I'm definitely one for needing to be more careful about being conscious of what I have and taking the time to appreciate things in general.

This discipline of really knowing and understanding things, draws me to think more clearly about this matter in the professional sense. From a technical design engineering perspective, knowing what you've got is really important and often critical in understanding whether what you're developing is actually going to meet the requirements it needs to, ensuring the specification enables it to function.

In product development, being exceptionally analytical and really looking at all the detail, is key to succeeding, with it often being difficult to really understand what's happening when something doesn't perform as expected and produces what are often undesirable results. In these situations, we get 'really fussy' about how we collect and interpret the data, which is often a more involved and complicated process when we are asked to assist later in the development cycle.

We therefore need to really know and understand what we've got to ensure that we can start building a picture of where the product is to help us in finding solutions to resolve the issues, by carefully creating and reviewing various sets of information that are provided or, more often than not, gathered by ourselves.
